Ring avulsion is a quite well-known injury amongst the emergency room staff, but for some reason we’ve started hearing more about it just recently. More and more people open up about experiencing such a harsh finger trauma and publicly advice on how to avoid it. Here is everything you need to know about it…
What actually is ring avulsion?
Ring avulsion, also known by the name of “de-gloving” is a severe trauma of the finger. It happens when your ring gets stuck somewhere – in a piece of machinery, in a fellow sportsman, in a fitness gadget or appliance, in a rock or tree branch, or basically any place where you can’t get it out of. So basically your ring is going somewhere and it’s taking your finger down with it. The finger could be left with stripped skin and muscle tissue, if luckily enough it survives at all. Sometimes the injury is so bad that amputation becomes unavoidable.
What people do to prevent ring avulsion?
The more people talk about it, the more things are being done to prevent it. Many companies had recently introduced a new rule which obliges workers to put away their metal rings while working. This is especially widespread rule amongst construction workers, mechanics, electricians and basically everyone whose work is done mainly by their hands. Gardeners, sportsmen, hikers and many other don’t need a strict rule to do so – they just remove their metal rings, because they are also concerned about the safety of their fingers.
…And why is that so uncomfortable
Having to remove your ring every time you’re working is an absolutely awful obstacle, especially for people who are naturally prone to thinking about more important things than where their stuff is. Daily removing your ring increases the chances of losing it by millions, and that is not a very nice option for a wedding ring, is it? Some people feel uncomfortable having to go for hours a day without their wedding ring on and constantly taking care of not losing it in the meantime.
That’s why we all need another option. Obviously leaving your finger on while performing high-risk activities is not very wise. But neither is putting your wedding ring on and off a dozen times daily. That’s why Maui rings step in to offer the perfect solution…

They are professionally designed, high-quality and longlisting pieces of jewelry, which are the perfect way to keep your ring on and keep your finger safe at the same time.
Silicone rings have a hard core, which is designed to break under a certain amount of pressure. This means that if your silicone ring gets stuck somewhere, it will break and it will boldly go without taking any piece of your finger with it. It does not only prevent ring avulsion, but it also keeps your finger safe by many other means – it’s hypoallergenic, non-conductive, heat and cold resistant.
