Gold, silver, and platinum bands are beautiful, classic symbols of commitment — but what if you can't wear one on the job? Maybe you can't have anything conductive, or need something that won't burn your finger when exposed to high heat, or a ring that won't mangle your finger if you're in an accident. Make sure you find out specifically what's safe to wear, but one of these bands could be exactly the material you're looking for to show your commitment.

Tattoos or necklaces can be great options if you can't wear a wedding band at all. A tattoo is a subtle — or not so subtle, whichever you prefer — way of showing your commitment. Necklaces can be the perfect way to display your devotion if you can't wear a band or don't want to get inked.
