    I didn’t either and I’m ALWAYS washing my hands even before this Pandemic.

    Since I work in healthcare and I feel like even more than normal I’ve been washing and squirting hand sanitizer in my hands I was nervous it would ruin my ring so I started wearing my silicone ring. I miss wearing my ring but I’d rather for the time just wear my silicone cheap ring 🤷🏻‍♀️

    Wow this is interesting! I'm in healthcare and wash my hands ALL DAY, EVERY DAY! I wonder how many women will consider not wearing their rings to work? I think I might consider it....

    I've stopped wearing my engagement ring for the past month because the ring has a lot of little stones that are hard to clean and I am using a lot of lotion because I'm washing my hands a lot. I talked with my fiance and he's fine with it (so that he wouldn't freak out when/if he noticed I wasn't wearing it) and it'll keep the ring sparkly going forward to our wedding in July. It really doesn't matter if I wear it at all now since I'm just in the house all day.
