A lot of people have discovered the incredible benefit of owning and wearing a silicone ring. They are a great substitute for a normal ring, including your wedding band. Your typical metal-based ring may be quite precious to you. You do not want to lose it, or have it damaged in an accident.
Luckily, silicone rings are far less precious, and you can wear them in almost any environment, including those you would not want to wear your normal ring in.
But that leaves you with the important questions of what size silicone ring should I get? We will be taking a look into why you should get a silicone ring in the first place and what size you should get to help make this process as simple for you as possible. Let’s get right into it, shall we?
Why Should You Choose a Silicone Ring?
Even if your occupation does not involve much work with your hands, you would probably still end up using your hands anyway. Your everyday tasks often involve some degree of hand-work. Those tasks include vacuuming, washing the dishes, or other household activities. They can also include working out and health improvement.
Suffice it to say, there are a lot of things you may need to do with your hands across your everyday routine. You may hesitate to do those things if you are still encumbered by the weight of a traditional band. When your finger is fitted with a silicone alternative, however, you can break past that barrier of hesitation.
Besides the convenience factor, silicone rings are also far safer than your standard ring. Their heat-resistance and non-conductivity can prevent a lot of possible injuries.
In summary, silicone rings provide more comfort and peace-of-mind. They are versatile in use, and far less valuable than a normal ring.
Choosing a Silicone Ring
Now that you have decided to invest in a silicone ring, you can start choosing which one would be best for you. Choosing a silicone ring comes with all the normal considerations you would usually make when choosing a normal ring. As a bonus, you will not need to decide on an expensive jewel.
So, what do you consider first?
You may think that size does not matter when it comes to a silicone ring. And that is half-true. Silicone, by its very nature, is meant to be flexible and elastic. It is also meant to be able to break when under enough pressure or torque. The flexibility means comfort, and the break-ability means safety.
While all silicone rings are flexible, there is only so much a ring can bend and adjust before it breaks or becomes uncomfortable. You still need to choose one in your size-range to feel truly comfortable.
Luckily, the same way you would measure your normal ring-size applies to the way you measure your silicone ring-size.
One way to measure your ring-size is to wrap a piece of string securely around your finger. You can then compare the size of the string to any ring-size chart, and the one it matches the most is your ring-size. You may even be able to go a half-size up or down from your normal ring-size.
Most silicone ring distributors also have a ring-size chart that you can use as a reference. These are typically free to access and browse.
While almost all silicone rings provide enough flexibility and versatility to be used in any situation, what you are going to use your ring for is still something to consider.
For example, you may only need to use your silicone ring at work. If this is the case, you would not need to buy a more expensive ring.
The rings come in different thicknesses and textures. Knowing what you are going to be doing with it will help in choosing the right thickness and texture for you.
With both your size and intended-use in mind, you can finally decide on a style. Your choice of style is completely up to personal preference. If you have never purchased a silicon ring before, you may want to pick a company that has a lot of variety with its ring products to find one that you think suits you and your finger best.
There are a few other things to consider as well. The finger you are going to wear it on, the size of your knuckles, and fluctuating temperatures are all additional things to keep in mind. (Cold weather can cause your finger to shrink; hot weather can cause your finger to swell). But those are all concerns you can worry about in the back of your mind. The important things come first.
With this article you have hopefully learned how to decide on the best ring for you – all that’s left now is to choose your favorite color, let the supplier know your size, and you will be enjoying the flexibility of a silicone ring in no time at all!
