Default Can I give my husband his wedding ring while he's in Federal prison?

My husband would like his wedding ring while in federal prison. Will they let me give it to him? They wouldn’t let him keep his wedding ring in when he originally got locked up and they wouldn’t let him take it with him. Thoughts?

He has to order one from the commissary

He can ask his counselor. If a wedding ring can be sent in from outside, the counselor can fill out an "approved package" form, or possibly have you send the ring directly to the counselor as is done for "release clothing". What families are allowed to send changes regularly, but if you already have his ring, be sure to have him ask.

Usually a plain wedding band is a permitted item, so not sure why they didn't let him SS with it.

My husband received special permission for me to send in a proxa brush after they didn't let him bring it in when he SS, but I think he went through medical for that. I would definitely have him go through his counselor first and ask. It seems to me that it would be more important for him to have HIS wedding ring, as opposed to one he can just buy from the commissary.

When we got married I told my husband I didn't care if he wore a ring or not, so he didn't. But before he went to prison, we briefly talked about if he should go get one now, but then I was like to hell with it, like why would it be any more important to me now, than before we got married. Lol. Maybe more just feeling like he had a part of me with him, which is probably what your husband wants, and why I am suggesting trying to get HIS ring not a new one from commissary.

That is exactly the reason why he wants it. It’s the connection to me and he would want his own original band. I tried to get his ring back to him but they wouldn’t even let him have his glasses either when he left. I’m going to give him the info about the request through his counselor.
