New Easy To Remove Wedding Rings Cause Controversy

Posted in Diamond Wedding Rings by La Vivion on 25th June, 2014

Wedding rings are a symbol of eternal commitment to one another. But Californian designer Jess McWhinney has recently announced his latest wedding ring collection aimed at the ‘active’ man’, which has proved controversial.


Controversial Removable Wedding Rings


McWhinney’s new wedding rings are made from titanium or stainless steel, come in a range of designs, and feature a fast-release hinge. This hinge is designed like the clasps of bracelet watches. The fast-release hinge is designed to make removing the wedding ring easier. 


Jess McWhinney came up with this new range of wedding rings as he felt that men wanted a ring that was easy to remove but was still snug when it was on your finger. He designed this range for the ‘active’ man so that they could remove their ring easily at work or at the gym. He said that rings can be cumbersome to wear during daily activities and when playing sport.


Men tend to remove their ring when playing sport or at work if it interferes with that they are doing. This means that when they first purchase their wedding ring they buy a ring that is too big for them so that it is easy to slip on and off over the knuckle. Jess McWhinney wanted to design something that could be removed easily so men weren’t spending a fortunate on a ring that was uncomfortable and did not fit properly. He wanted to create ‘something functional well made and kinda trick to show it off to our buddies’


The new Active Wedding Rings for Active Men has caused some controversy, especially among women. Their main gripe with the new collection is it’s promoted easy to remove hinge. Many women are saying that there is no need for a fast-release hinge; men shouldn’t want to remove their wedding rings. Many are complaining that the new wedding ring will just be used by men who want to quickly remove their wedding ring at the gym or the office Christmas party and that it is designed for men who want to be unfaithful.


Whatever their true purpose, at La Vivion we believe that a wedding ring is something to be cherished. After all, it symbolises the bonds of love and companionship between couples and also acts as a reminder of their special day.
