<p>I haven't been wearing my wedding ring because it doesn't fit and would be very difficult to resize. Long story, but I need to start wearing a ring on my left hand.  Suggestions on what would be safe in the pool?  I've ruined several silver necklaces, so I know that's out.  Gold plated silver?  Titanium?</p>

<p>I swim with my platinum wedding and engagement rings, and they've been fine.   I also swim with a silver necklace and ring, and they're fine as long as I polish them periodically.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>But the platinum has been a-ok with no work.</p>

<p>Y'all are brave, I don't dare wear mine to the pool.  It's my DH's great grandmother's ring; I'd be in deep doo doo if it ended up somewhere on teh bottom of the pool! </p>
<p> </p>
<p>4bm - can you just wear it everywhere *but* the pool?</p>

<p>$20 engineering ring in pool, yes. Mucho $ wedding rings in pool, no.  My rings are too loose, especially when my hands are cold, that I would be paranoid of them falling off.  Regardless, I would think platinum or even gold would be pretty much impervious to chlorine.</p>

<p>My eye ring always turns up no matter how many times I lose it in the pool 12 or 13 years?  it's silver</p>
<p>I also soak regularly with my silver rings $2 a piece from Kohls. Bought three: mind.body.spirit.  {lost one in a tragic- throw your apple core to the deer fiasco}</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I can't wear my wedding ring for squat. my finger acts out, cracks and bleeds. My understanding is I might be allergic to nickel in the gold.+ Lots of channel diamonds. The water hides everywhere. even w/o the pool just day to day hand washing.</p>

<p>Why is your wedding ring to difficult to resize? I've never heard that</p>

<p>hijack: Quick tip: If you forgot to leave your jewelry at home or somewhere safe... a hair tie the (kind you probably have on your wrist) anyway doubled over and slid down your finger will keep the rings from sliding free when your fingers shrink</p>
<p>if you don't have one- find the nearest long haired girl, I promise we have a spare!</p>

<p>Guessing for an answer to Looki's question..... I bet the pool is particularly where she has to wear her wedding ring!     </p>
<p> </p>
<p>I am with Monica, I have been wearing my platinum band in a pool without any issues.  Also often wear platinum earings.  (I am too lazy to remove them).  I can wear nothing but Platinum, yes I am an expensive woman.  Used to wear diamond engagement ring too, but it was getting too loose.  </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Looki's comment reminded me... a few years ago, I was in the deep end of the pool, being videotaped.  And I lost a diamond stud earring (stupid of me wearing *REAL* one).  Oh My Geebus.  I dove in several times looking for it.  It wasn't 1 carat shiny one that would reflect all the lights even at the bottom of the pool or anything.  Anyway.  Somehow I found it.  But going all the way to bottom to grab the tiny little thing was another story.  But got it done.  And no more studs in a pool.     </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Stainless steel?  I work for a company who makes stainless steel hose clamp.  If you tell me the circumference of your finger, I will send you the right size <span><img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="width:16px;height:16px;">  </span></p>

<p>Me too alergic to nickel.  Silver, white gold, etc would give me horrible itches to my fingers.  Ears reacts even worse. Finally found only Pt would work beautifully :)  </p>

<p>Okay, will look at platinum or gold.  I don't want to take it off to swim because I tend to leave a trail of barrettes and hair bands, so I know I'd never keep track of a ring!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>My wedding ring is an engagement ring, wedding band and "anniversary" band (4 stones, one for each kid).  They are all joined.  Grandpa was a jeweler and he warned me that once it was joined, that was it.  No biggie, except that I lost 20lbs and my fingers shrunk.  </p>
<p> </p>
<p>The long story... I haven't worn my rings for about 5yrs with no problem.  I started attending a church about a year ago.  The pastor I really liked left to start another church and I followed him.  Most of the members of this new church are young, in their 20's.  There are very few my age.  In the 3 months that I've been attending this church (hubby doesn't go with me) I have older guys hitting on me almost every week.  I'm hoping that a ring on my left hand will put a stop to it!</p>
