Sometimes I would remember and leave it safely at home and sometimes I'd forget until just before I was about to run out to the mat and end up tossing it haphazardly into my purse or gear bag. The last time I did that, I couldn't find my wedding ring for almost two months!
I figured there had to be an alternative. I even considered getting a tattoo on my ring finger so it was always there but wouldn't hurt myself, others, or damage the equipment. Then I remembered seeing silicone rings online. These were designed for first responders, members of the military, or anyone with active lifestyles. Perfect! But which company should I use? I searched and decided on Saferingz, mostly because they didnt stick their logo smack dab, front and center on the rings. I ordered one single band in gunmetal and three thin stackable bands to create black and white stripes.
They are simple, no fuss-no muss little silicone bands that are a real solution to my problem. I can leave my precious, one-of-a-kind wedding ring safe at home while still proudly displaying a symbol of my marriage. It won't damage equipment or faces, and if it gets lost, a replacement is only about twenty bucks. Best of all, I don't get that disappointing look from my hubby when I head out to class, sans wedding ring anymore.
