@MrsSnowMountain:  I have that ring and I love it! I’ve worn it about once a week for over a year and it still looks great. it’s really comfortable too.

I’m a biologist and do a lot of outdoor field work.  I wouldn’t wear my engagement ring when working outside. Now tht I am married, I will likely wear the band. I designed it with no stones, and a shape to fit in with the other ring but looks cool on its own. Perhaps you can wear just your band once married?

@BooRadley:  She said she is worried about scratching a child, not her ring. Or a child biting the ring and chipping a tooth, not chipping her ring.

Not to be a party pooper, but won’t you still risk hurting a kid with a princess cut?  I’m assuming it’ll be a small stone by the price, but princesses have sharp edges.  I like the suggestion someone made about the necklace – but you’d have to be sure it was a sturdy chain.  If you feel you MUST have something on your finger, I like the idea of a ring like ilaz’s.  Something low profile and bezel set will work well.


For what it’s worth, when I do something with my hands, I go ringless.  When I get married, I’m getting a plain band and maybe a shared prong band so I don’t damage my delicate high profile ering.

I really understand where you’re coming from. One of my best friends is a special education teacher at a residential facility and the injuries she’s sustained from kids biting and scratching her are no joke. If I were in your shoes, there’s no way I’d wear my “real” e-ring to work!

I’d think about getting a band stand-in, or bezel set ring. Anything prong-set could be a liability around your students.

why dont you just do a smiple band?  a princess cut diamond has harsh edges too and I can see that being more of a problem then the marquise diamond.  If you want a stand in b/c you are worried about your real one and about hurting the kids with it then get a simple band and not another ring with 2xs as many points on it

I work in an emergency department and so I don’t wear my real e-ring to work. It is a large solitaire and I worry for a couple of reasons: 1. I don’t want to get anything gross under the prongs (i.e. infection control issues) 2. I worry about damaging the prongs over time because I take gloves off and on frequently. 3. The hospital I work at is in a dangerous area in the downtown core of our city and I don’t want to wear anything too flashy that may pose a risk to my safety when walking to my car.

I discussed this with my fiance, and we decided to get me a “work ring.” I didn’t want it to be mistaken for my actual e-ring or future wedding band. I also wanted something that I could wear as a right hand ring when not at work.

I don’t have a picture of me wearing it on my computer, but I have included the stock picture from the jewellery store. Here is my “work ring”:
