Rings (other than simple wedding bands), necklaces, bracelets, watches, earrings, piercing, etc. could possibility cause injury to the wearer or to another person, but simple wedding bands are no more unsafe than sharp fingernails or students who have not washed their hands after using the restroom. Some instructors are a little carried away with their rules, but they own the schools so it is their prerogative.
Some people are offended at everything; however, they only tend to express their indignation to “good” people who they know will not harm them. They never seem to be offended by “bad” people who they think may kick their butt if they complain. I once had a student (for only two days) who worked as a nurse supervisor who refused to call instructors and other students sir or ma’am, even through they used the term ma’am when referring to her.
