Silicone Rings FAQs
What are silicone rings?
An inexpensive, durable, and, dare we say, alluring substitute for a metal band is a silicone ring. Instead of metal, the traditional wedding rings are silicone rubber bands. Similar to traditional wedding rings, these rings can come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and hues and serve the same function—they stand in for the union of two people.
A silicone ring can be worn as an alternative to a wedding band or just for fun. Some people wear silicone rings as a permanent alternative to metal, while others wear one when they're concerned that they might damage an expensive ring.
Do silicone rings affect my health?
As of recent, there is no proof that wearing silicone is harmful. It’s best to first see how your silicone ring fits. If it’s too tight or irritating you, then you may want to consider sizing up or evaluating if it’s the right choice for you. Ultimately, as with any product, use your judgement and preference to guide you.
Do silicone rings protect me from occupational hazards?
Yes, it does. Most people don't have any issues wearing their metal wedding rings to work every day, but did you know that in particular industries, wearing a metal wedding ring poses a health and safety risk? Silicone rings protect you from the following occupational hazards.
Wearing a gold or silver wedding ring, for instance, can be extremely risky for people who work with electricity. Several metals used in conventional wedding bands are conductors of electricity, which is dangerous. Contrarily, silicone wedding bands are non-conductive and secure for wear by electricians.
Medical workers may also be at risk if they wear metal wedding bands since the metal or precious stones may pierce gloves or other protective clothing, placing patients or themselves at risk of infection or infectious diseases.
While working closely with a patient, they could potentially cut, scratch, or otherwise hurt them, unlike silicone rings, which are flexible and soft and won't hurt anyone.
Firefighters may operate in sweltering temperatures, so it's not a good idea for them to wear any metal jewelry that could heat up and burn them. A silicone wedding ring can be removed with ease, however a metal ring may need to be cut off in the event of an accident.
What are the advantages of silicone rings?
Silicone rings are flexible, more water and temperature resistant, and made from medical grade silicone. Due to the fact that they won't slide around on your finger like regular metal rings do when in contact with moisture, this is particularly helpful while you're on the job or in a field. Also, silicone rings won't conduct electricity as well, as they aren't made of metal.
Consider someone who has an active lifestyle and works in a hazardous environment or enjoys mountain biking or rock climbing. Wearing a conventional ring in any of these circumstances can be risky since it lacks any elasticity and is more rigid, which increases the risk of ring avulsion injuries.
Silicone rings can endure 16 kg of force and can stretch up to three times their original size, so they won't imprison your fingers in the event of an outdoor or workplace mishap.
They are much safer to wear because of their durability.
A traditional metal ring, particularly a wedding ring, has a lot of emotional significance. It is virtually irreplaceable as a result. However, breaking or losing it can be a heartbreaking loss that is expensive to replace.
Replacement is simple and affordable when using a silicone ring. Also, you could get a replacement ring if yours were to tear or shatter.
Even though it is stunning to look at, a traditional metal ring can occasionally be uncomfortable to wear for extended periods of time. This is particularly valid when you are working on a task.
Comfort is a key feature of silicone rings. They won't hurt your fingers while you're out adventuring or working on a task because they have been molded to fit snugly around your finger. Because they are so comfortable, you'll quickly stop noticing them once you start wearing them.

Silicone Rings vs. Metal Rings
Choosing between a silicone ring and a metal may not be as easy a choice as it may seem. There are several reasons to choose a silicone ring over a metal ring and vice versa. Still, once you decide what is most important to you, the choice becomes much easier to make. Silicone rings are made to be more comfortable and may just be your choice if comfort is more important to you than any other factor.
However, if durability is what you prefer the most, metal rings may be the best option for you. In conclusion, you will have to decide what you value the most in order to make a choice between the two.

How do you take care of silicone rings?
Great question, and the good news is that the care for silicone rings is pretty simple. Read on below for more information.
Daily Silicone Ring Care
It's essential to keep your ring clean, no matter what material it's made of. Most of the time, you can clean your silicone ring with soap and water, and it's a good idea to clean it once a day to get rid of any dirt or other things that it has been exposed to.
The exterior and interior of the ring should be cleaned with a mild hand or dish soap once it has been removed and rinsed in warm water. If it makes it simpler to recall, you can also perform this in the morning or at night while taking a shower.
Removing Difficult Dirt Spots
Your ring might occasionally develop a tougher spot that resists removal with just warm water and soap. In those circumstances, you can use a mild cleanser or a 2:1 ratio of vinegar and hydrogen peroxide.
Don't use bleach or abrasive chemical cleaners on your silicone ring. To remove debris from your ring's deep grooves, you can also use a scrubber or an extra toothbrush you already own.
Sanitizing Your Silicone Ring
You can also quickly sanitize the silicone ring if it ever comes in contact with something unhygienic, like bacteria or bodily fluids. It should be placed in a pot of boiling water for about 20 minutes, removed with care, and then left to dry. Even in boiling water, silicone rubber won't crack or change shape.
It also never shrinks or expands. For a thorough cleaning, you can also put it in the dishwasher. Just make sure to put it inside something to prevent it from falling out or into the dishwasher's bottom (like a cage for baby bottles, or inside a silverware compartment you can close).
Can hand sanitizers break down silicone rings?
Isopropyl alcohol, which makes up the majority of hand sanitizers, won't harm or "melt" your silicone ring in any way. Similarly, any additives in any hand soap will do nothing but clean your ring.
How Do I know my size for a silicone ring?
- You'll need: tape, paper, scissors, a writing utensil, and a ruler.
- Men: Cut a 9mm strip of paper. Women: Cut a 6mm strip of paper.
- Paste the tape on the edge of the paper strip, covering only half of the tape.
- Paste the tape on your ring finger
- Comfortably wrap the paper strip around your finger to make a “ring.” Make sure it is not too tight/loose.
- Once the paper is fitted, use the writing utensil to mark where it overlaps.
- Measure the length between the taped edge and the mark in millimeters.
- Once you have your measurement, refer to the sizing chart to get your ring measurement. For example, Size 10 is 63.5 mm
