HOLIDAYS + ADVENTURE + JEWELRY = DISASTER?
Holidays, glorious holidays. For some it will mean a time of relaxing, taking things easy and lots of “me” time. For others it is a time for challenges and new adventure. Whichever it is, you won’t leave home without a few essentials like sunscreen, bug spray, sunglasses, passport, appropriate wear for the activities you plan – and your wedding/engagement ring. You are supposed to have a carefree time with lots of goodness for your body and soul and not worry about a thing, right?
Wrong! It might not be risk-free! For your precious band of commitment, the going may get tough and if you do not bear a few do’s and dont's in mind, you may regret the decision to get outdoors.
- Jewelry takes little space in your bag but are precious and expensive. Your finger might not be the safest place for a huge diamond when walking the streets, it might draw the attention of a criminal or lone ranger. Nor, is the shiny one save in a hotel safe. Minimise the risk. Take less expensive jewelry so you need not worry about losing or damaging your precious piece of jewelry. An Orbit Silicone Ring might be the perfect affordable and durable replacement. It’s funky, it’s modern, it’s stylish, it’s lightweight and convenient.
- Chlorine in pool water and sun screens on the beach might tarnish and discolour the metals and gemstones in jewelry. Touching weird and wonderful things are part of exploring your environment while playing explorer.

- Sand, rocks, bicycle handles, ropes or various adventurous activities might scratch your metal ring or loosen the stones. Or, the sand on the beachside might swallow your valued piece and leave you in tears and your insurance guy not too happy with you. With a Silicone Ring you need not worry. No stones to be lost. No digging for rings in the sand.
- In temperatures of 40+ degrees in the Namib or Kalahari, hot and sunny times on the beach or hiking in the Karoo or Kruger, your fingers might swell, leaving you with uncomfortable and tight metal rings squeezing the life out of you. Or nasty rashes, allergies and bacteria might lessen the euphoria of your expedition.
