When I first met my last and hopefully my final wife, she got me a gold chain for my birthday. Very nice BTW. 25 years ago next July.
I just put my wedding band on the chain. The chain is always under my shirt and never seen unless, well, I have my shirt off.
So, I still am technically wearing the wedding band.

I only wear mine when we go to out for dinner or at weddings. Otherwise it is on my key ring. It is stainless steel so I didn't worry about scratching it and now looks better with the wear.

I like those too but a little too permanent for me. I don't plan on getting a divorce but life can be unpredictable

I wouldn't trust a jewelry store sales person to know the difference between tungsten and tungsten carbide. They do make rings out of tungsten carbide and it's a lousy conductor at best, and that only because of the cobalt binder.

I wonder how that salesman thinks that incandescent lights work.

Don't know whether it was true, but there was a letter to an advice columnist long ago from a woman who had pushed her husband to wear his ring at work. She said it wore a hole in his lineman gloves (??) at which point she changed from a wife who had won an argument into a widow.

I just got married this year. I started with a tungsten carbide ring, and tried a titanium for the lighter weight. I prefer the feel of the tungsten carbide.

My wife ordered a silicone one for the increased safety. It will be here Monday.

I went without for a while, but I found it odd--so used to a ring. So I got a silicone one from It's stretchy, so if it did get caught on something, it just stretches off.

I wear it 100% of the time now, just forget to switch rings, much to my wife's dismay.

I have a Tungsten wedding ring. I wear mine while working. I wear gloves if I'm doing an activity where my ring could get stuck, if it's a huge concern I'll take it off. When working on live circuits (wait, I don't do that....sshhhh) I'll take it off and put it in my pocket until I finish.
