My husband and I wore these silicone rings during our honeymoon — they looked great and stood up to 2 weeks of salty ocean water


Roq Silicone Rings

  • My husband and I wore ROQ silicone rings during our
    honeymoon in the Maldives so we wouldn’t be too upset if we somehow
    lost our platinum wedding bands in the ocean. 
  • They handled two weeks’ of snorkeling, swimming, and
    sweaty beach runs really well, and still look brand
    new. 
  • ROQ has a wide selection of styles, colors, and widths
    for
    men
    and
    women
    , though the rings would all look great on anyone. They
    come in single or multi-packs, and prices range from $7.99 to
    $18.99. 

After having our destination wedding at Lake Louise in Canada,
the only thing my husband and I wanted was a relaxing honeymoon
where the sky meets the sea.

We love being in the water so we decided to go to the Maldives
to snorkel, swim, scuba, and sleep, and stayed at the Conrad
Maldives Rangali Island because of its extensive house reef.
Knowing that we’d be in the ocean for a majority of our trip, we
packed mostly swimsuits, board shorts, sunscreen,
and silicone rings

My husband and I wore
silicone rings
during our honeymoon because we knew we’d
snorkeled and swim in the ocean often

My husband and I have platinum wedding
bands
, but for our honeymoon, we switched between our regular
rings and
silicone ones from ROQ ($7.99 to $18.99)
. Our wedding bands are
insured, but that doesn’t mean it’d be any less annoying if we lost
it in the ocean.

There are many different styles for men and women, with sizes
starting at 7 and 4 respectively

There are a lot of different styles for men and women, though I
have to say that they all look gender neutral to me. The only real
difference is the thickness in the band widths — the mens’ styles
are thicker while the women’s are thinner. I wore
a 2-millimeter thick band
that had lines all around it and my
husband wore
a domed, 6-millimeter thick band
; both are slightly thicker
than our respective 1.8-mm and 5-mm wedding bands. 

The rings start at size 7 for men and 4 for women; there are no
half sizes per se but the silicone rings can stretch to fit the
next half size. The rings will also stretch over time, so if you’re
unsure of your size, I’d suggest sizing down. My real band is a 6
so I went with that; my husband’s real size is a 7.25, so he chose
a 7.

The women’s rings come in a bunch of different colors like gray
and yellow to mimic the color of real metals, or turquoise and
black glitter if you wanted to have more fun with them, and the
men’s rings come in colors like gray, camo, and more. For my
husband and me, the rings were much more functional than
fashionable so we each went with a four-pack that had basic colors.
I’d suggest
getting the multi-pack
because it’s so inexpensive (I wouldn’t
be too sad if I lost one of the rings), and the rings will stretch
over time so you’d always have a backup. 

The rings looked great in and out of the water, and endured salty
ocean water and sweaty beach runs 

The ROQ rings fit well, looked great, and lasted through two
weeks’ of salt water, sweat, and more. They got the job done and
still looked new even when we got back home. The stretchy silicone
wasn’t uncomfortable at all; we barely noticed it after wearing it
for a while. 

While my husband and I wore these for a tropical honeymoon where
we knew we’d be in the water a lot, these are great for those who
have a more active everyday lifestyle, or for travelers who don’t
want to risk one of their most invaluable possessions getting
stolen or lost.
