Royal Engagement: Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi

Royal Engagement: Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi

The world has been buzzing with the announcement of the royal engagement between Princess Beatrice and her fiancé, Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi. As with any royal engagement, the focus has been on the engagement ring - a stunning diamond and platinum piece that has been passed down through the family for generations.

But what about the wedding band? Traditionally, the groom would present his bride with a metal band to wear as a symbol of their love and commitment. However, as we've seen in recent years, more and more couples are turning to alternative options, like silicone rings.

There is something special about wearing a wedding ring that has been passed down through generations of a family. It carries with it the weight of history and tradition, and serves as a tangible symbol of love and commitment that has withstood the test of time. However, there are also some potential downsides to wearing an heirloom wedding ring.

Heirloom rings may not be practical for modern lifestyles. Traditional metal wedding bands are often bulky and heavy, making them difficult to wear during physical activity or manual labor. They can also cause skin irritation or even injury if caught on something. 

Another potential downside of wearing an heirloom wedding ring is the risk of damage or loss. While the ring may be a treasured family heirloom, it is still a piece of jewelry that can be lost or damaged. The sentimental value of the ring may make it irreplaceable, causing heartache and disappointment if it is lost or destroyed.

Enter silicone rings. They are lightweight, flexible, and hypoallergenic, making them a popular alternative for those with active lifestyles or sensitive skin.

Perhaps the biggest advantage of wearing a silicone ring is that you can do everything in them. Travel, workout at the gym, do sports, do gardening. You can do all these activities comfortably and without worrying about losing a finger (due to a ring injury) or losing an irreplaceable heirloom ring!
