Can’t Wear a Traditional Wedding Ring? You’ll Love This Alternative
Whether you’re a firefighter, in the military, or just hit CrossFit every night, there are plenty of reasons an engagement or wedding ring might not fit in with your lifestyle. So when we stumbled across QALO rings last week, we thought the non-traditional rings were an amazing idea.
QALO rings are made of thick silicone, which is water-repellant and can handle high-temperature environments. They come in men’s and women’s styles and run $16 to $20 each.
This is what the company’s founder, KC Holiday, told Lover.ly:
“We started QALO to solve a very simple problem: we couldn’t wear our metal wedding rings in the gym. But what we discovered as we started to share the product was that there are all these communities of people (firemen, police officers, military servicemen and women, mechanics, engineers, pregnant women, and the list goes on and on) who cannot, and are not, wearing their wedding rings. As they have discovered our product they are overjoyed to solve a problem that is very personal. Not only are they excited to keep their finger safe in the field (QALO breaks upon tension which eliminates the risk of snagging and losing your finger) but more importantly they are ecstatic to be able to finally wear their ring and honor their spouse. We are blessed to have such an amazing community of people using our product and we are very excited about continuing to explore ways to highlight marriage while pursuing the adventure of life.”
Highlighting marriage while pursuing the adventure of life sounds pretty awesome, right? It’s also a nice option if you’re simply tired of guys hitting on you when you’re not wearing your ring in the weight room at the gym.
Would you or your partner wear one of these alternative rings, Loverlies?
