Technically the rule where I work is you can only wear a band and my ring does not qualify as  a band. But I wear it anyways. I work in a deli right now and while I am not on the counter serving customers much, trying to get gloves on with my ring, it’s hard. I usually have to wear a size bigger than what I normally am. But if I am ever asked to take it off, I’m pretty sure I would just quit. My FH worked long and hard to get me this ring and there are several other employees that wear rings and even earrings when they shouldnt.

I am in nursing school and we are not allowed to wear anything but a plain gold/silver band (no stones at all) in lab and at clinicals  – they enforce it all the time

I’m not allowed to wear anything but a plain metal band (not engraved or anything) at the hospital, but we can whatever we want in the office.  So I split the difference and my engagement ring is a half eternity band.  I haven’t be chastized yet….LOL. My wedding band will be plain, though, so I’ll always be able to wear that without problems.

Bummer! I often wear surgical nitrile gloves at work and my ring doesn’t get through. Would you ever consider buying a personal box of stronger gloves if it’s so important to you?

I work for an automobile manufacturer and there is absolutely no rings, watches etc allowed. My FH spent a ton on my ring but those are the rules of my job so I don’t wear it. It’s less wear and tear that way anyways.

I am a restaurant manager and can only wear a plain band.  But as soon as I get home I put my engagement ring on.

@mmr66:  This for me too. I get sad not having it on because of school rules but also would choose not to wear something so valuable (financially and emotionally) at work/school where it could get banged up.

I got a bezel set e-ring so that I could wear gloves over it–I work in food service and in veterinary hospitals and in a lab so all of those places require gloves.  No one really cares what I am wearing as long as my gloves are not torn.

Technically in some clinicals (NICU, L&D, and ICU) we aren’t allowed to wear our rings with stones, however several of our profs wear some big rocks anyway. I got a plain band to be able to wear all the time. I never had issues with tearing gloves when I did wear my e ring anyway. But it is small and not sharp corners.

I can’t.  I am a massage therapist, so we’re not allowed to wear rings, watches, bracelets, etc.

@LovelyLittleTexasBride:  You should then! It’s a small price to pay, considering how much you love your ring.  Plus I always like getting unusual colors. I got many compliments on black nitrile gloves, surprisingly….
