8. BULZi – Massaging Comfort Fit
These silicone bands from BULZi caught our eye, and they are sure to catch yours too! With a prime focus on comfort, these are excellent bands if you are worried that a silicone band will cause you discomfort. So, how are these bands different? Their CushDome bevels! These bevels raise the ring up just slightly so that it does not rest directly on your finger, which helps to promote airflow. If you are concerned that the silicone will irritate your finger or rub and cause irritation or cause your finger to sweat, this band is the perfect choice for you, as it was designed to specifically address all of those concerns.
The bevels also feel nice of the skin to help promote an even more comfortable fit in addition to all of the other benefits. Made of hypoallergenic silicone these rings are still just as safe and durable as any other that you will find, with the added comfort you might be looking for. Because of their design, it is best to order a size down if your ring size is a half size to ensure the ring is not too big. These rings are made for both men and women, and they come in a variety of masculine and feminine colors including black, navy blue, purple, pink, sage, turquoise, and even teak. Sizes range from a size 4 all the way up to a size 13.
9. QALO Women’s Functional Ring
We covered QALO men’s silicone bands earlier and their selection of women’s bands made our list as well! These are another great option for any woman looking for a durable, yet delicate looking wedding band. With these bands, you can choose both your color and the style of the band – get a twist design, step design, bead, geo, peak, or smooth design. Colors include classic black and white as well as more bold colors like purple amethyst and aquamarine. Wear these rings one at a time or easily stack them together as they are each thin in design.
With the same quality and durability as the other QALO rings, you know you are getting high-quality silicone that will not easily break. These bands have tensile strength withstanding up to 7 pounds of pressure before they will break and can withstand temperatures ranging from -75 degrees all the way up to 575 degrees. Sizes range from a size 4 up to a size 9, giving a pretty good range of sizes so you can hopefully find the one that is perfect for you, and keep in mind QALO rings fit true to size.

Men can choose between black, blue, gray, and white, and women can decide between black, aqua, gray, pink, purple, red and white.
These bands have a nice beveled edge on both the top and bottom but otherwise have a sleek design without any other patterns or designs, perfect for the minimalist couple. These bands are made of hypoallergenic silicone and as a nice added touch, each band contains the infinity symbol on the inside of the band, the perfect touch for a wedding band! No matter how active your lifestyle, these rings are a great option that you will be able to wear every day without fear of damaging them. Their comfort fit also ensures you won’t want to take them off ever.

If you are still undecided if silicone rings are right for you and your partner, we understand. This is certainly a big step to take and is very different from choosing traditional wedding bands. It is a big decision that you want to be sure about. Here are some answers to some frequently asked questions that might help you make up your mind.
Q: Are silicone rings really that much more durable? Can I truly wear them anywhere?
A: Yes! Silicone wedding bands are not just intended to be a more affordable option to traditional wedding bands, they are specifically designed to be incredibly durable and worn anywhere- including getting wet, dirty, in high or low temperatures, and more. These bands are designed to be worn anywhere and everywhere so that you do not have to take them off. If you lead a very active lifestyle or have a career that involves you getting your hands dirty in any way, you are likely to have to always keep your wedding band off unless you go with a silicone band. It is a great alternative that allows you to honor your commitment to your spouse without worrying about damaging an expensive metal band.
Q: Will I regret not getting a traditional band?
A: While we cannot answer for you specifically in terms of what you want out of a wedding band, we can say this much: silicone bands are very affordable compared to traditional wedding bands. They are a great alternative for any active couple or any couple trying to cut down on wedding costs. If you go with these rings and several years down the line you wish you had a more traditional band, you could always purchase one at that point.
You certainly will not feel like you wasted your money on these bands, as they are very affordable, and also great to have for situations when your hands are getting messy. Many couples, for example, choose traditional wedding bands to exchange on their wedding day and to wear on “safe” days but also purchase silicone bands for more active days or while at work if they get their hands dirty. Simply put, they are always good bands to have around so you can always have something on your hand without worrying about ruining an expensive gold or diamond band.
Q: How do I figure out my ring size? Is it the same as a traditional ring size?
A: This is a totally logical question to ask. After all, most rings you purchase are made of metal. Does the sizing stay the same when the band is instead made of silicone? The answer is, it depends. For some rings, you will find that they are true to size. In fact, if you take a look at the description of certain rings (such as the QALO men’s silicone ring) they will list that they are true to size.
For others, they will give you a detailed sizing chart that shows the diameter of each ring based on the size. To figure out what size you need, get a piece of string and wrap it around your finger (you may need your partner to help you out!) Mark the point on the string that matches the diameter of your finger and then take a ruler to measure the string- you’ve got your answer!
