Silicone rings are a bit of a new craze that I got caught up in a couple of years ago, and since buying my first one — and several more since — I love to wear these. At this stage, most people have never even heard of silicone rings (or know what silicone is, for that matter), but I reckon they will get more and more popular in 2020 and beyond to the point where they will eventually become the standard. Silicone rings have loads of benefits: they’re cheap, durable, you can wear them practically no matter what your job, and they’re also a great conversation starter.
Since getting interested in silicone rings, I’ve brought and written-up short reviews on all the major brands that offer silicone rings (Enso, Qalo, Groove, and Kauai). There are a handful of smaller brands, but currently I feel confident in saying that these 4 brands are the best silicone rings available today. Here’s a short overview of each one, along with links to the reviews:
Enso silicone rings
Enso is the primary brand behind silicone rings and also the first one I tried. On their web-store (ensorings.com), you can buy a silicone ring from their collection for under $30 at the time of writing, and there are plenty of different variations (Elements, Birthstone, Legends, Bevel etc) available in different colors.
Groove silicone rings
Groove is the main competitor to Enso, and these 2 brands are definitely the biggest in the industry. Groove began in 2015 and now offers a wide lineup of silicone rings at a very similar price point to Enso (many of their rings are right around $30, like Enso).
Qalo silicone rings
Slightly less popular than Enso and Groove but still a fairly well established brand, Qalo is a brand founded by Ted Baker and KC Holiday in 2013. Qalo is an acronym for “Quality Athletics Love Outdoors”, and like Enso and Groove, they have a wide range of rings available that are more than capable of handling rough conditions.
Kauai silicone rings
The 4th most popular silicone ring (by search volume) is the somewhat-difficult-to-remember brand Kauai, which focuses on wedding rings and fitness rings.
