Silicone rings are a popular alternative to traditional metal wedding bands. Some couples choose to use these rings instead of a metal band altogether while others choose to substitute these rings when they are doing activities that would risk their metal bands.
1) Non-porous material won’t absorb materials: Silicone is a non-porous material so it will not absorb or be damaged by chemicals or other liquids that may tarnish or otherwise damage a traditional metal ring.
2) Protects metal rings from loss and damage: Work and other active pursuits can scratch, bend, tarnish and otherwise damage many of the metal bands. These activities also make it more likely that the metal rings will be lost or stolen.

Rubber Diamonds are another alternative for those with active lifestyles that still prefer to wear a wedding ring. These rings are made of rubber and have a setting for a single small diamond. These rings are very similar to the plain silicone rings discussed above but they also allow the wearer to continue to show off a diamond even when they are working or being active.

Lastly, and perhaps one of the most important reason for many couples is to show their love and the symbolic relation they have been blessed with. Not always is a metal band or diamond the appropriate ring for people during certain daily activities.
Regardless of the reason for having an alternate ring, silicone rings are durable and resilient. The silicone that is used is high quality and able to withstand a significant amount of wear before it would need to be replaced. Since they are rubber, repetitive rubbing of the rings across a surface, such as a paddle when rowing, or another tool when working, will eventually wear the ring down to a point where it could break or become uncomfortable. While it is possible to damage the rings in this way they are easier to replace then a metal wedding band which would be damaged in similar ways by the same repetitive motions.
The silicone rings are also less likely to slip off of the wearer’s finger. This is simply due to the nature of silicon as this material resists water and other liquids that make metal rings slide on the fingers. This enables the silicon rings to stay in place while playing sports, rafting, or paddling across a river. This allows people to continue to wear a ring without risking the loss of an expensive and highly sentimental metal band. The metal band, that may slip off unnoticed while competing or working out, can be left safe and secure at home while the silicone ring can substitute without interfering.
Both of these rings are available in a variety of colors. Since these rings are significantly less expensive than the traditional metal bands, the wearer could choose to have multiple rings of assorted colors to wear during their active hobbies or to work.

These rings are a perfect alternative for active individuals that want to protect their metal wedding bands from damage or loss. They are comfortable to wear while exercising, working with your hands, or doing any number of activities. Anything that causes repetitive motions in the hand can damage a metal band and these actions are simplified and more comfortable with a silicon ring. The stress, pain, and hassle that comes with replacing a lost wedding band can also be avoided by choosing to substitute these rings while being active. If the silicon ring happened to be lost it can be quickly and simply replaced but the metal band would require hours of searching and weeks to months spent working on an insurance claim to potentially get a replacement.
Simply put, silicone rings allow the wearer to protect their metal wedding bands while still wearing a band to show their commitment to their partner.
