These rings are perfect for active and outdoorsy couples, clumsy brides and grooms who are worried about damaging traditional jewelry, and for those who would prefer not to support the jewelry and diamond industries.

The same goes for firefighters. In fact, first responders, as well as medical personnel, have increasingly chosen silicone over metal for the benefits listed above.
