I work in healthcare and I wear my engagement ring and my channel-set band to work every day.  If I need to do a sterile procedure, I just put it on my necklace.  I spend much of my week at work and at the gym, and I dont’ really like wearing it to the gym, so if I didn’t wear it to work it would barely ever see the light of day!

I am a PT and I wear my rings at work now that I work in an outpatient rehab center. I was in ICU before and was not allowed to wear rings.

I’m in administration so I don’t provide hands-on care. Regardless, my stone is relatively low set and without pointy prongs.

I’m a social worker in a healthcare setting, so no direct patient care. I always wear my rings.

Patient care, most of us at the hospital wear our rings!

bridesmaidnomore44 :  Oh that ring is so pretty.  Could you share where you got it?

 

Ladies, lovely rings, but what does “OT” stand for?  Can’t quite figure that one out!

I’m in medical school right now and have done some clinical work. This is my ring. I wear it on a chain around my neck when I’m doing clinical things. It would definitely rip gloves and I wouldn’t feel comfortable examining a patient with it on anyway.

I work in direct patient care in a hospital.  I definitely don’t wear my e-ring at work.  There are just too many germs/risky situations.  We picked out my wedding band recently and it’s essentially a thin band so I have the option of wearing it to work, but I honestly don’t think I will.  Right now, I wear a silicone band and know a lot of co-workers that do as well.  There are a ton of different colors and styles available through multiple companies so I bought a few different ones to chage it up when I feel like it.

20sparklingyears :  Aw, thank you!! He took me shopping at Quest fine jewelry, they have a location in my area (Northern Virginia) and a coworker of his recommended it. They have GORGEOUS rings with really good quality diamonds from what I saw. 

And as a PP said, OT means Occupational Therapy ๐Ÿ™‚ 

I have to add that one of my patients took a picture of my ring yesterday! She’s been commenting on it for weeks haha

I work as a doctor in Sweden, and we’re not allowed to wear any jewelry from the elbow down. Most people wear their rings on a chain around their necks. Also, diamonds are small or non-existent on engagement rings in general. I have a plain white gold band, and am thinking of getting a half-eternity as a wedding band.
