Just a curious poll! I'm a new nursing student, and see a lot of gals (and guys too!) who wear rings while on the job. How about you? Michelle :)... Read More

    Hubby had my ring designed and custom made by a former patient of ours. I only have the wedding ring, not an engagement ring. I have one stone channel set in gold -- it's very low and has no prongs to catch on anything. Some day, I'm going to have an anniversary ring made to match with tiny little channel-set diamonds. A co-worker of mine has a very similar ring to my wedding ring as her engagement ring with a plain gold wedding band. It looks fabulous, and like mine, doesn't scratch, catch on or tear anything.

    I used to wear rings, but my skin under the rings kept getting irritated. Wash my hands too much I guess.

    For the most part, the only jewelry that I wear is my water proof watch. On occasion, I'll wear a necklace or my rings but mostly nekkid of jewelry except the watch. A necessary item and I feel quite nekkid and lost with out it.

    Don't wear any jewelery but my Teddy bear watch. It is a little metal teddy bear with the watch face in it's tummy so cute. I don't have to work in Paeds to have it appreciated either as so many patients have asked to look at it and loved it!!

    I wear my mother's ring and a ring my mom gave me. I consider them part of me and I can only get one of them off, anyway!

    I can't help myself. They are so sparkly and pretty. I know I shouldn't- but I do.

    Never took my wedding ring of in 29 yrs, and could only get it off when my hand were reeaallly cold. Then I learned to scrub and had to have them re-sized. That cost more than the original price of the whole set (never wore the engagement ring at work) so if I scrub, all, including the watch are off, otherwise if I am doing pt care, just my watch and plain band are on.

    no watch and I put my rings on my necklace at work.. I really think that rings collect bacteria.. also short short nails, well scrubbed ..

    just a thin gold band, I bought. I dont' wear my original wedding band because it's an heirloom, & my diamonds are too precious to get poo-poo on!!!

    I've been trying to decide myself what to do when I get my engagement ring! But I think of all the germs, even with all the handwashing...yuck!
