Default Wedding Band - Clarification

One of the items listed as a permitted item is a wedding band. Does anyone know if the band must be metal, or will they allow a rubber wedding band?

I am going to self-surrender in the next 30 days, hopefully, and my wife wanted me to keep my real wedding band at home as it is a little loose. She doesn't want me to lose it as it tends to come off when I'm washing my hands. So, I bought one of those $20 rubber wedding bands which just looks like a dark, gray metal band.

Thoughts? Experience? Thank you.

Get yourself a cheap stainless steel band. My husband's was $13.

I don't think they'll allow the rubber ones.

I believe it has to be metal, no stones and cost under a hundred dollars. (not sure on the amount there but its close)

You could also find a sterling silver band for very cheap.

It also says no insignia..
Does that mean it cannot have words engraved inside the band?

I don't know if I'm being overcautious or not but I'm not even going to wear one when I SS in a couple of weeks, I know I'm going to a camp but the less people know about me the better I think. There are those that will ask about me and my life and I'll answer according to how I feel about them, but there are also some schemers out there.

Yep! A lot of guys wear them, but I view it also as just one less thing to worry about losing. My husband doesn't wear one so it wasn't an issue.

I also don't wear mine when I go to visit. Don't want people judging me one way or the other. The less they know about me, the better, or the less likely they are to make wrong assumptions, which unfortunately is very common, even on this site. Of course, I've also had it happen that people have asked me if he's my father!! Lol. I'll take that as a compliment to how young I look as opposed to how old he might look!! Although the reality is that it is probably both!

Well, we both have a ring now and I'm glad for it- some people thought I was his sister.
