The Benefits of Silicone Wedding Rings

In recent years, consumers have started to recognize the value of silicone wedding rings. Whether they live an active lifestyle or just have sensitive skin and need something hypoallergenic, silicone rings are the perfect complement to your lifestyle. Silicone rings give you peace of mind when you’re living your most active life, more so than any other type of ring out there.

Imagine you’re rafting down a roaring river, or scaling a cliffside, or even just at work doing what you do every day — welding, saving lives, maybe even playing professional sports. Now, can you picture yourself wearing an expensive wedding ring or a traditional metal ring during any of those activities? Of course not! Why wear something fragile (or something that can conduct electricity) in your most demanding moments? That’s why alternatives exist, and in this post, we’re highlighting a special kind — silicone. Discover three great reasons to opt for a silicone wedding band below.

1. Made for the Active Lifestyle

Why shouldn’t an adventurer, athlete or any other active person get to wear their wedding ring as much as anyone else? For people who lead a life where diamonds, precious metals and anything expensive but not entirely useful is not welcome, they can appreciate the convenience of a breathable, flexible wedding ring that won’t scratch, break or get them into a dangerous situation.

2. Or Those Who Work Hard for the Money


Can you imagine an electrician wearing a metal wedding band or diamond ring while on the job? Or a construction worker? Or a welder? Some job environments are just too dangerous for metal rings (hello ring avulsion risk), but you still want to show your love and devotion! Unlike metal wedding rings, silicone rings are non-conductive and perfect for those working in the trades.

You don’t have to be working in the trades to appreciate silicone rings. Medical professionals, outdoor guides and anyone working in a demanding field should consider this alternative to traditional wedding bands.

Modern Gents’ silicone rings are (obviously) not made from any type of metal and they’re soft and flexible, which makes them perfect for metal-hostile environments. In the words of a past customer, “I hate wearing metal rings. This ring is just what I've been looking for. I'm an active mechanic and need something that doesn't get in the way while wrenching. This ring fits the bill and it doesn't look like I'm wearing a rubber washer.”

3. Or Those Who Can’t Just Wear Any Ring

While not something most people think about, not everyone can just pick a ring and call it a day. Our silicone rings are made of medical-grade silicone, which means they’re hypoallergenic and hold up to cleaning. If you have sensitive skin or are limited in the metals you can wear, silicone can give you the peace of mind you need to wear your wedding ring each day without worry.

Simple, Modest, Mighty

If you want something you can put on first thing in the morning and forget about it until it’s time to take it off before bed, silicone is your perfect companion. These rings are minimal and never in the way, going wherever you go.

If you want the best of both worlds, you can pair this with a traditional wedding ring. If you’ve got a classy event to dress up for, bring the traditional ring out. For every normal day in your life, your silicone ring is there with you (and comes in a variety of colors).

Hypoallergenic, durable, flexible, with multiple different colors available including black, pink, white and teal. What more could you want from an alternative ring? If you’re not into flashy jewelry, or you work in a demanding environment, or you’re a sports fanatic, or you spend most of your time in the great outdoors, there are few choices better suited than the simple, modest and mighty silicone.
