Deciding to buy a silicone ring is not actually such a big deal. Silicone rings are trendy, affordable and stylish, so maybe you’ve already given them a chance and you know how they look and feel. But things tend to get a bit more complicated when you need to decide whether or not to buy a silicone wedding band. You start asking yourself all the important questions – how long do silicone rings last; how do you take proper care of them; do they stretch? Wait… do they?
Yes, they do. Exactly as much as they are supposed to.
Please, stop imagining your silicone ring turning into a bracelet or necklace – that’s not what we mean here. Maui medical grade silicone rings are especially designed to serve as wedding bands, so they’re not some kind of trendy toys. They have a durable hard core which won’t allow your wedding ring to change neither in shape nor size – ever.
Yet, yes – silicone rings stretch. They stretch just enough to keep matching your finger even when it’s swollen, even when you gain weight, even when your fingers change due to temperature change, natural growth or certain bone conditions.
They stretch as much as they need to so they won’t become an obstacle for the proper blood support of your finger. It won’t feel itchy, uncomfortable, painful or tingling. Actually you can put a silicone ring on and forget about it for quite a long time, because you’ll never have to put it off. Unlike the metal ring, the silicone ring will never put your finger in any danger – it will prevent ring avulsion, ring rashes and the development of metal allergies.
Now, pay some special attention, because we’re about to reveal the most genius thing about the stretching of the silicone ring. Yes, it stretches to match your finger. But you know what? When your finger shrinks, the silicone ring shrinks back too. How cool is that?!
Maybe you’re especially suspicious and you need further evidence that a stretching ring is a good ring? Go on and have it.
Why stretching is a good thing?
Let’s think for a brief moment for the traditional metal wedding rings which definitely never stretch. What kinds of situations could that possibly put you in?
- Poor blood circulation in your ring finger. It hurts, it’s a danger to your health and you’ll have to say goodbye to your wedding ring forever. Unless it’s a silicone one, of course.
- Inability to remove your ring at all. Scary, isn’t it? Sometimes finger swelling could be so fast and severe, that only a professional could help you remove the metal ring. And all you can think of is: “Oh, if only that ring could stretch…”
- Having to resize, change or give up wearing your wedding ring. Because the tightness of the metal wedding ring is threatening your health and comfort, sometimes you just have to give it up. That’s quite an uncomfortable thing to do and it usually costs a fortune. Unless you act smarter and get yourself a silicone wedding band before anything like this happens…
