How long do Silicone rings last?

Silicone rings are pretty durable, so you can expect them to last for a good amount of time. But, like with anything, the lifespan can vary depending on how you use and take care of it.

If you're regularly exposing your ring to extreme heat or chemicals, or if you're not cleaning it regularly, it's likely to wear out faster than it would otherwise. But if you're taking care of it and avoiding those things, it could last for years!
