I recently got engaged and am struggling with finding a pair of gloves I can wear with my e-ring. I live in the Northeast so it gets quite cold here in the winter. I read that gloves can damage prongs and my previous pair of gloves don’t fit me if I wear my rings. I am thinking of getting a pair of mittens.
Do you have gloves/mittens recommendations? How do you wear gloves without damaging your rings?

bloom15 : Just turn the ring around so the stone is on your palm side.

julies1949 : Thank you for your reply! I actually have been thinking of doing this, but was concerned the prongs would still get caught up by the glove?

I’ve never had issues with my gloves, but they aren’t super tight.

Ive never had an issue, but my ering is pretty low set and my gloves aren’t very snug.

I have this pair of leather driving gloves that are impossible to wear with my ering. As long as they aren’t super tight, you should be fine.

I’ve always been a mitten wearer (Canadian winters!!) so rings weren’t a problem. You should try em out! Cute and cozy 🙂

I have a million different gloves and mittens. Wollen (traditional from Swedish Lappland – the warmest gloves/mittens out there), fleece, mixed materials, ski/snowboard gloves and all is fine. Except one pair. As pp said: tight leather gloves won’t work for me anymore if I don’t turn the ering palmwards and that’s annoying when you actually do something with your hands.
I believe it all depends on your setting. I have a low set solitaire and a shared prong eternity band and gloves/mittens work for me. Never even through about it.

Can you get one of the silicone ring protectors, put that over your ring before putting on the gloves, then remove it when you get inside?

bloom15 : I’ve never had any issues with gloves and my rings. I alternate between my North Face stretchy gloves and leather gloves (Michael Kors, Ralph Lauren) and my ring tends to tilt to the side on its own when I put the leather gloves on. I’ve never heard of gloves damaging prongs though. I wouldn’t be too worried about it!

Try a pair that’s a littl bit larger. I also had better luck with a pair that is lined in silk, it doesn’t snag in the prongs like a wool pair.

I don’t have an advice, but that’s the reason I got a low profile ring to begin with ehehe.

MsP23 : Same haha. I can’t wear actual gloves with my e-ring, and I can’t/don’t like to function with the stone turned to the palm. So fluffy mittens it is.

I have never had this issue but I guess most of my gloves are a bit big since my hands are so small.

My stone is large and gets in the way but I push it to the side where my pinky is in the crack between my fingers and works great
