Jewelry

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
For my 2 year anniversary, I'm getting a ring from my sweetie. He got me a ring at christmas but due to cooking so much, and chopping, and being clumsy, it has gotten pretty beat up.

The ring I'm getting is a diamond and white gold ring. But I dont want to mess it up.

How do you guys keep jewelry decent?

I knew you would say something like that :D.

Back in the days when I worked in surgery many of my women co-workers would remove the rings from their fingers and place them on a necklace when they arrived to work and changed into scrubs. Then at the end of the day they would put the rings back on.

I don't really encourage wearing jewlrey in the kitchen, for sanitation purposes in addition to keeping the ring clean.

I have horror stories my chef told me about some guy that would knead bread dough with a nasty cheap ring which would always leave specks of fake-gold paint in the dough.

I leave it in my jewelry box until I'm going someplace and want to wear it. Sometimes I forget to remove them and will put them in a little decorative container in the kitchen. It's never used for anything else so the perfect place so I don't forget where they are.

Rings, except a wedding band are a big no-no. EHO would have a hissy fit. If you lost a stone and someone bit on it??? bad as biting on glass.
Not to mention all the bacteria harbouring in the grooves. ( do you wash your ring every time you wash your hands?...)

When i put my apron on, my engagement ring goes on the string before i tie it.
It's business... Nothing personal.

Depends where you are: my employer has the rule -
* no rings except for plain wedding band,
* no watches
* no bracelets
* no necklaces
* no badges, brooches or pins
* earrings - plain round rings: no studs, no dangles
* face piercings to be covered by medical tape

A bit of crunch may not be appreciated by the customer - and I think it may be a case of "finder's keepers" is it came off in the food ..

Contamination risk

Finger rings can be very high risk in regard to cross contamination and in a professional environment it absolutely must come off, but at home it is entirely up to you, its your food and your ring. If you want to look after it and keep it nice it would be a shame to ruin it it the kitchen.

Although I do not work in a professional kitchen, being too young and all that jazz, I understand the risks. I'll be sure to put i somewhere safe when I cook. Thank you for your input, much appreciated.
