    Wedding ring alternatives

    Dangers of wedding rings have been covered here but does anyone have any alternatives to just not wearing a ring? Tattoos and silicone rings seem like a safe bet. Anything hard seems out of the question with snagging a concern

    I don't wear any jewelry of any kind at work. Minimal items to get caught in moving parts.
    Tattoo is the next best option I guess-unless you wind up divorced lol

    My first one hung up on a hay wagon while jumping off the wagon. It went under the skin and took snips to get off. For 28 yrs I didn't have it on again. This time around for 15 yrs I have had a titanium one on. Don't like wearing at work but have a slightly demanding wife. She is the greatest thing ever so I just deal with it and try to be careful. I have heard that titanium could be a pain to get off though. Fingers crossed.

    I don't believe you should let others make a safety decision for you. Your the one that has to live with the results.

    I have both with me every day. I don't wear either on my arm or finger. I used to buy Timex Marathon watches, they are no longer made. It is a clip or a carabiner watch. Works well, takes a heck of a beating, and I only have to replace the watch every 2 or 3 years, as the crystal face gets all scratched up from use.

    my brother went to hawaii after qualifing for the ironman. He and his wife bought new rings while they were there. I think his is mahogany(wood). Pretty cool looking. He wears the wood ring all the time, the metal ring is in the safe.
