I’d get jewelry insurance that covers damage and I would just wear my ring.

Personally I’d rather wear no ring than a cheap stand in ring. I love my ring and wear it with pride but I have a physical/dirty job so I never wear my ring at work. No big deal.

I have a rhr that is tension set and I wouldn’t want to do anything too strenuous that would knock it around. It is the stone (diamond) that is held together by pressure from the metal (white gold). I get mine checked on an annual basis and he did recommend more often if I wear it every day (I don’t)

If it were me, I would get a lovely band and wear it to work. I personally would prefer it be my wedding band, rather than a cheaper stand in ring. But that’s me.

Have you any pictures of your ring?

I would get a plain thick band to wear at work rather than a cheap stand in that will get a lot of wear.

I would be so sad not to wear my rings at work which is the majority of the week when you think about it… 

What about getting it reset to something more practical?

mrs_k616:  A lot of times jewelry isn’t covered under renter’s insurance or homeowner’s insurance. And/or it doesn’t have the same coverage: ie it doesn’t cover loss or whatever. I’d definitely get the insurance, it’s SUPER cheap, and wear your real ring.

If you want to have something on your finger, I’d just wear a cheap plain band until you get married and then after you’re married, wear only the wedding band at work. 

I’m not entirely sure what your job duties will entail, but if it requires enough hand action that you’re worried about your e-ring, I’d think a stand-in with a large stone might still get in the way/be cumbersome, so I’d stick with bands.

mrs_k616: I have a few friends who work in industries that are not very “ring friendly” (e.g construction, military, dental) and they all opted to get tattoos. Obviously tattoos aren’t everybodys bag but for those who like them it turned out to be a great solution. Oh and it might be worth adding that not all of them did their spouse’s name- two couples had simple drawings that reminded them of their husband or wife (they’re both obsessed with Disney so he got the Mickey Mouse ears and she got the Minnie Mouse bow and the other pair got feathers)

I was kind of in the same boat as you.   I’m a nurse so I’m constantly putting on gloves, taking them off, washing my hands, moving patients, etc.   I’ve been wearing my real rings since I got engaged 2 years ago.  I know that I constantly bang my hands off things but for some reason I still wore them.   Well I took my wedding band in to get checked about 2 weeks ago cause its been over a year since my wedding.   It turns out that I had chipped a few prongs (my wedding band is a 7 stone diamond band) and had a loose stone.   The jeweler said it wasn’t ready to fall out but if I hadn’t brought it in, the stone probably would have been lost in a few weeks.   That made me totally nervous, so I came home and ordered a fake 7 stone band from Berricle that I only wear to work now.   I get sooooo many compliments on it and people are SHOCKED when I tell them its fake.   It felt a little weird at first to not wear my real rings to work anymore, but now I’m ok with it and I put my real ones on as soon as I get home.
