I have a silicon ring that I wear while lifting weights and hiking (my hands swell tremendously and our hikes often involve lots of scrambling)

That’s too much work for me. When I need to take my ring off, I just go ringless for 10 minutes or an hour or a day. It’s nbd.

If you’re concerned about safety, I would get a silicone ring. If not, then it might be fun to get some cheap stacking rings to wear instead of your e-ring. 😊 This is what I plan to do. I currently just wear nothing if I feel like I’ll lose or damage my e-ring.

Daisy_Mae:  ummm you do know that means you’re not married for those 10 minutes or an hour or a day, right? For shame.

meglynn:  I have a Qalo silicon ring and actually wear it. Sometimes I don’t remember to switch it out when I’m doing something like hiking, but I do remember to switch it out for stuff like kayaking or rock climbing where my engagement ring might take a real beating or sink in a river, haha. I also try to remember to switch it out for swimming, etc.

I have rings I care about more, and rings I care about less, so I’ll use my pawn shop ring sometimes for adventures. 

If it’s really nitty gritty though, I go sans any rings, like a day of fishing with my dad. No WAY am I risking losing a ring trying to net a trout out of the water with cold, wet hands. O_O

Daisy_Mae:  You’ll also need to fend off no less than 8 men hitting on you every 10 minutes after seeing you ringless. Be prepared, girl.

TheGridMonster:  LOL, thank you for answering! Might sound ridiculous, but I have such a hard time picking up on sarcasm, even in the non-virtual world.

meglynn:  there are women here who are adamantly against stand in rings, and feel the need to let the world know at every opportunity. I understand liking to wear a ring (because who doesn’t like jewelry?!) and there’s also reasons for which having a stand in ring helps me to not lose my actual ering by forgetting to switch hem back out (I.e. Every day at the gym). So just ignore the snark and know that there are women who are super active and get it!

meglynn:  my sarcasm wasnt directed at you. it’s based on some of the comments I’ve seen on this topic in the past. Wanting to wear a ring because you just like a ring on your finger is fine. But some bees have made comments that make it seem like they NEED something on that finger at all times or else it must mean their relationship isn’t strong or that they’re not as in love or something. That’s what always makes me raise a brow.
