It’s the one item of jewelry married couples rarely take off. But for those who lead an active lifestyle, work outdoors, or who dislike the feeling of hard metal on their fingers, there’s a new wedding band material that is being welcomed by both professional athletes and stay-at-home moms alike.
Silicon wedding bands have been popping up on the fingers of newly married couples everywhere, and although they were initially targeted for men, they are becoming more and more popular with brides.
Not only are they more affordable than their gold and platinum counterparts, they are also safer for those who work with heavy machinery where wedding bands can get caught.
Seen on the wedding fingers of NFL players such as Kirk Cousins, Dalton Kerr, Marvin Jones and Andy Dalton, they are also a big hit with professional surfers like Shane Dorian and Kalani Robb, volleyball players, fitness gurus and other pro-athletes.
The Hills reality star, Audrina Patridge, loves her silicon wedding band by QALO for days when she doesn’t want to risk damaging, or losing her diamond band. “They are so cute and light,” Audrina says of her QALO stackable rings. “I don’t have to worry about my diamond getting scratched.”
Silicon is heat resistant, anti-microbial and non-toxic and with an average price of $10 to $25 you won’t mind if you lose a couple here and there!
