Hi everyone! Firstly, let me say that I love, love, love my engagement ring❤️ My fiancé spent ages picking the perfect ring for me and it really is perfect! For this reason, I’m currently not wearing it to work (in retail) as I am constantly taking my ring off to wash my hands and I’m worried I’ll lose or damage it (I’m wearing a different ring that he got me last Christmas). I’m also not wearing anything to the barn to take care of my horse (rings catch on everything at the barn and get sooo dirty!) I’m finding that my ring finger feels naked while at the barn (which is where I spend a lot of time haha) and I want something to recognize our love while I’m there. After that long introduction, I was wondering what your thoughts are on Enso silicone rings? Also, is it weird/wrong to purchase a different ring for myself to wear as a symbolic placeholder for our engagement? Thanks! ☺️
I ordered my enso rings after getting engaged because same as you couldn’t wear it for work and I didn’t want to ruin it. I absolutely love them, it’s fun being able to pick different styles and colours and I love that they have a lifetime warranty on them!

I’m loving the elements rings! It’s less traditional looking but I think I might go for the peacock quartz as it matches the central stone of my engagement ring - which was something my fiancé was determined to have as he knows how much I love colour!
We both have Enso rings and love them. Mine is a placeholder for workouts and any activity that I would worry about losing it (like playing at the beach with a friend's kids) and my husband's is for every day use.
His one complaint is that it's just a tad big, and they don't have half sizes. We're going to order one full size smaller and see how that goes. I once forgot to take my Enso off and wore it to work, a few people noticed it was different but no one noticed it wasn't metal.
If you want something more flashy, but that is "cheaper" there's "modern gent" rings. My fiance got me my "real" ring and a modern gent ring similar to my real ring for when we go on vacation or camping ect. https://modgents.com/?gclid=CjwKCAiA7939BRBMEiwA-hX5J-ZGUNAHZbxTmomHiOXECD-TWkcYZ_x8B8b59YhaDFfEcSHBlfPxqhoClNIQAvD_BwE
I have an enso ring that I wear when working out/camping/swimming etc. and I love it! I'm in a similar boat where it feels strange to not have anything on my finger and although the enso ring is super light it still feels better than having nothing there.
My husband has one also that he wears during the work week, since he works in construction and his normal wedding band isn't soft enough to be able to be cut off his finger if anything happened. Plus he doesn't want his nicer wedding band to get dirty.
Also, I don't think it's weird to get yourself a placeholder at all, considering I did the same thing. Before I bought my enso I would wear a cheaper ring whenever we went camping so that I still had something on my finger, but that started turning my finger green so I wanted something better.
