Silicone wedding rings have health benefits

Wedding rings are among the most treasured items you own after getting married. In addition to symbolizing your commitment to one another, it is often the most expensive piece of jewellery you own. In some situations, however, it may not be practical to wear your metal wedding ring and it's safer to choose a silicone wedding ring instead, despite your desire not to remove it. In fact, some people prefer a silicone wedding band over any other type. The purpose of this blog post is to discuss the health benefits of silicone wedding rings and why they can be a safer option than more traditional metal wedding rings.


Some professions recommend wearing silicone rings

Why should I wear a silicone ring? Most people wear their metal wedding rings every day to work without a problem, but did you know that in some professions wearing one is a health and safety hazard?


That's right, it's true. Wearing a metal wedding ring can be harmful to your health if you work in the following professions:


Electricians: Wearing a gold or silver wedding ring can be very dangerous for those who work with electricity. The metals used in traditional wedding bands can conduct electricity, which can be fatal. In contrast, silicone wedding rings are nonconductive and safe to wear by electricians.


Metal wedding rings may also pose a risk to medical professionals due to their ability to cut through protective wear, such as gloves, which may expose patients or themselves to infectious diseases. Silicone rings are soft and flexible and will not harm a patient when working in close contact, while metal rings may scratch, cut or harm a patient.


The environment in which firefighters work can be extremely hot, so metal jewellery should be avoided. A silicone wedding ring can also be easily removed in the event of an accident, unlike a metal ring.


Children won't be harmed by silicone wedding rings

It is quite easy to accidentally scratch a child with long nails when picking them up or comforting them, and the same can be said for a wedding ring. If you are often in close contact with your children, especially babies and toddlers, it can be easy to accidentally catch a long nail or wedding ring on them. In order to avoid this, women should wear silicone rings while nursing their babies and while their children are still young.


A silicone wedding ring is safer in unknown environments

When traveling in an unsafe or unknown area, your wedding ring may be at risk of theft. When travelling, it may be best to leave your precious wedding ring at home or to lock it in a hotel safe, and to wear a silicone wedding ring instead.


Active lifestyles are made easier with silicone rings

If you participate in sports or regularly attend the gym, some metal wedding rings can become uncomfortable when doing certain activities. With silicone rings, you can exercise in comfort, and they are lightweight and slip-resistant, making them ideal for money bars and weights.


Do you love metal rings? You can choose between a silicone wedding ring and a traditional wedding ring

It makes sense for some people to only choose a silicone wedding ring if they will otherwise be removing their metal wedding ring constantly. However, if you want a traditional metal wedding ring along with a silicone ring, there's nothing stopping you from having both! Since silicone wedding bands are really affordable, you can use one alongside your wedding ring for those moments when it's safer to remove a metal wedding ring, but you don't want to be without it.


Wait, doesn't silicone harm the environment?

Compared to plastic and other materials, silicone has multiple benefits and is eco-friendly. In comparison to plastic, silicone is more eco-friendly. When used in products, silicone, which is made from silica found in sand, lasts much longer than plastic. When burned, silicone reverts back into its harmless ingredients: amorphous silica, carbon dioxide, and water vapor (unlike plastic which releases toxins when burned).
