    Here's the company website: https://qalo.com/collections/silicon...SAAEgJYv_D_BwE

    Not what I'd call very romantic, I'd say. However, I recall most folks involved in tactical operations never wear rings while on operations. I guess this concept might be an attempt to reduce some of the dangers involved in wearing rings.

    I know a guy who has been married and divorced three times. How much more dangerous could a wedding ring be?

    I saw that and immediate thought about tradespeople.


    Electrical hazard as well as fall and snag potential. We were encouraged by Safety Manual to not wear. There was a earlier recommendation of cutting the ring partially on inside to let it separate if snagged... we worried more about losing it than a finger!

    When I was in printing business after High School , my lead operator/ trainer had a missing ring finger I asked him what happened... caught in open rollers of the press next to mine! I removed my ring immediately! He was trying to get debris off inked rollers on a very unforgiving pinch hazard!

    I am a retired sparky, 35 years. Yes wedding rings are a no,no! In my early years working on golf carts got shock off 36 volt D.C. It left a mark on my ring.
    You could wear them but not at work.

    I am also a recently ET. When in training many moons ago, a fellow student was taking a practical test on rack systems. He was taking voltage readings on the high V. circuit. He took a probe and probed the contacts. Then he would write down the readings and put his pen in his mouth. He accidentally mistook a probe for the pencil and put it in his mouth. He bounced between the racks of equipment. Fortunately it was Hi Volt circuit. with very low amps.

    I did commercial HVAC service and install for 12 years. Never wore a wedding ring. Nothing worse than a wedding ring jumped across a 480 volt circuit! The hooking/fall hazard id a bad deal too. My wife questioned it but when I explained the risk she was all for it.
