A few weeks ago I tied the knot with my lovely bride FBG Tish. My excitement about marrying her was through the roof, and I have to admit, the thought of wearing a wedding ring was a big deal for me as well. Normally, wearing a ring wouldn’t be a problem at all, but we knew our honeymoon would entail lots of water activities (surfing and snorkeling were both high on my to-do list), so I was happy to hear I’d have a rather unique wedding gift to help with my concerns about my ring during water sports.
Cue the QALO Ring! You want to rock a wedding band, but don’t want to lose that pricey piece of jewelry in the ocean? No problem! This ring is pretty nifty. It’s made out of rubber and fits firmly around your finger, so it won’t fall off. It’s comfortable, which was a major perk considering I still wasn’t used to having a foreign object on my finger. In fact, when I went snorkeling, I totally forgot I had the ring on. It also helps that the bands are affordable. Being that the men’s band is only $20, I wasn’t too worried about losing it.
Which brings me to another pro about sporting the QALO Ring: Because these bad boys are inexpensive, they’re perfect for traveling. I have a friend who bought traveling bands for him and his wife because they feared getting robbed on vacation. Great idea, but even a cheap gold band can cost a pretty penny and frankly, I’m cheap.
The QALO ring is waterproof and can stand the wear and tear of an active person. Just to test its durability, I went ahead and started wearing it for workouts. While Tish has complained many a time that her usual band gives her calluses during workouts, I found my Qalo band to be comfortable and light. Again, I forgot I even had it on. If you’re active like me or travel regularly and need a good stand-in band, this ring is definitely something to consider. And they’re supposed to be making ladies’ rings soon!
