@NovaRising:  I personally would chose option B because it looks more like a wedding band and is more versatile.. The fact that your Fiance chose it is even better.. At least I would lean more towards what he chose. The first one is more of a statement piece I think.

I prefer the aesthetics of ring A 🙂

I love option A but for nursing you should do option B only because the channel set will protect your diamonds from wear and tear and banging it on beds etc. I work at a hospital too and the amount of times you hit your hands is crazy!

b will be more protected and will work better under gloves.  Plus it’s more versatile and can be worn as a wedding band.

A is so pretty. I love it, but it will be a pain to clean. You say you will clean it every day. But when you have kids and life gets crazy, cleaning your ring will become far less important. Looking at my coworkers rings after 15 years of marriage, I’d go with B.

I love A, but being in the medical field myself B would be better and less likely to snag gloves or get caught since its smooth instead of swirly.

@NovaRising:  I vote for B because A looks like it will get soap stuck in it very easily from all the handwashing you do. 

 

I wear my engagement ring to work fwiw, as do some of the other nurses.  But I do remember nursing school being much more stricter than the “real world”(I remember always having to have your hair pulled back and having to always wear all white leather shoes).  I still always wear my hair in a bun out of habit from nursing school(plus I care for lots of kids….always glad to have it in a bun when I care for a child with lice).

@NovaRising:  Oh okay. Then go for A! I read it was for work but was thinking it was far more expensive.

I would advise you to forgo the rings altogether. They are a danger to your patients, and many hospitals and clinics are moving towards banning even flat bands because of the amount of bacteria they can harbor that you CANNOT get off with regular hand hygiene.

Plus, if your substitute rings are diamonds in white gold, the hand sanitizer will SERIOUSLY do a number on them. Your rings will go yellow & your diamonds cloudy.

I understand that you want to wear something on your finger, I really do (I’m in the same boat, FWIW). Personally, I’m thinking of either getting a small black band tattooed on my ring finger, or using henna on a regular basis to create the same effect if I chicken out of the needle.
