Thanks everyone. I guess its preference and what’s comfortable. I work as a hairdresser and was worried about wearing my ering to work. Guess I’ll just have to see how it feels. I’m actually surprised with how many wear gloves to work and have micropave rings and haven’t lost stones. That’s great cuz I have a pave halo and want to wear my ring all the time!
I thought about morganite. I wanted one so bad but went with a diamond. It is a bit softer and id hate to ruin my stone so I chickened out haha. Peach sapphire and peachy pink mossinite are close and so gorgeous and very durable if you wanted other options:)

and Blackrabbit I def would agree with not wearing rings in your field, I’m sure you deal with some crazy people and situations. Good idea with a cheap stand in ring. I might have to do this as well until I get married and get a simple wedding band. thanks for the help!

Following this thread as I work in a construction related field and it is hard on my hards. I am getting my Ering in about 3 weeks and I am worried about wearing it. I was thinking about wearing it on a ring keeper necklace but would be worried even that would get snagged. Just makes me a bit sad to have this amazing ring and never get to wear it.

I am in the sciences and spend more time with my hands in dirt than not. I have a very delicate french prong-set halo engagement ring. The band is 1mm! I DESTROYED it once already, and the jeweller had to rebuild it. But we didnt get my ring to have it sit in a drawer. I wear it 75% of the time. The rest of the time I wear my 3/4 eternity band. Its the ring I loved, and like DH says, that is what insurance is for!

I have nothing to contribute other than I had to read the title 3 times to have it NOT say “hand jobs” in my eyes. LOL!! 🙂

We own a sheet metal manufacturing company and although I am not running the heavy machinery – I do handle alot of sheetmetal parts, some are heavy and big, other are small and precise. When I’m worried that I’ll scratch a cosmetic part, I’ll spin my ring in the inside of my finger or slip it in my pocket. (Any metal to metal will scratch) My ring is platinum so its tough but its an emerald cut with halos and split shank with diamonds down the shank too – so I do try to be careful when handling parts.
It’s more of a case by case scenario for me with my ring…
Hope this helps! 🙂

- Wedding: October 2014 - Cape May
I’m a preschool teacher and my job is very hands on. I’m always in and out of water, changing diapers or helping one of my students. My ultimate priority was that I be able to always wear my ring so I have a very low basket set solitaire with baguette side stones. No issues and it never gets in the way! I made sure my wedding band was a plain band as well because last thing I need is a pave stone to fall into out and land in a kids mouth!
