Default Wedding Rings

My husband got me a QALO ring for boot camp its Purple are we allowed to wear those? Are they acceptable? It is a silicon ring so the normal wedding ring I wear doesn't get lost, stolen or misplaced and so I don't lose the diamond in it.

The specific regs on rings are as follows:

Quote:
6. JEWELRY. Conservative jewelry is authorized for all personnel and shall be in good taste while in uniform. Eccentricities or faddishness are not permitted. Jewelry shall not present a safety or FOD (Foreign Object Damage) hazard. Jewelry shall be worn within the following guidelines:

a. Rings. While in uniform, only one ring per hand is authorized, plus a wedding/engagement ring set. Rings are not authorized for wear on thumbs.
Source

But what's considered eccentric and/or faddish is somewhat open to interpretation. I personally stick to black for watches and don't wear any jewelry in uniform, but that's also my preference.

I wear qalo rings now and love them. However, when I was in boot I just wore my regular wedding band. I really don't see any recruiter giving you a hard time about a wedding band, even if it is purple.

Okay thank you so much. The wedding ring I have is a 3 diamond future past and present. It's a little much so that's was another reason to get the qalo band for boot camp and while in uniform, then my normal ring on nights and weekends.

That sounds like a very sensible plan. The worst case is that you will be told that the purple rings is "too faddish", so you will have to take it off. No big deal. The worst case for wearing your regular ring is that it is lost or damaged.

It would be best to wear a black one. If you tell them it's a wedding ring they won't give you an issue. If it has any color on it you'll have someone give you a hard time at some point.
