We're used to adapting our wardrobes to complement our lifestyles, so why haven't we started taking the same approach to our jewelry? Since I'm a long-time yoga teacher, enthusiastic hiker, and perpetually traveling sun-seeker, my poor engagement ring has endured more sweat, sand, and salt water than most. For all intents and purposes, its sparkle should be saved for more sedate occasions. After all, it's hardly an heirloom worth passing on if I continue wearing it while I bash around the world. But there are a number of reasons that I keep my ring wedged firmly on throughout my outdoorsy pursuits — an emotional attachment to its symbolic meaning, a creeping paranoia that I'll lose it, and, quite simply, no other alternative.
After some research, I decided that my husband and I should each try slipping on a QALO ring. Brand ambassadors like Katrina Scott and Karena Dawn, the sassy, seriously fitness-obsessed founders of Tone It Up, swear by their QALO rings. These are stylish women who work out for a living. If QALO was providing them with the right balance between fashion and functionality, I knew I had to try it.
Once we'd each selected a ring that reflected our style — my husband stayed neutral with a black ring while I decided upon a stackable rings — we decided to give them a week-long trial run. There was only one rule: keep our rings on at all times, whatever the activity.
From traveling to every indoor and outdoorsy activity in between, QALO has proven itself to be the perfect sporty companion. We could both focus fully without the worry that something would happen to our wedding rings. The silicone is a more comfortable and practical alternative to platinum, and my ring stack still looked super cute.
