If you can't wear a regular band on the job, one of these options might be the perfect fit.

Posted on

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.
