I forgot my engagement ring this morning. I usually put it on after I blowdry my hair (the prongs catch my hair). But I’ve been forgetting ever since I got a new dish to keep my ring in. Maybe because I can’t see it as easily? I’m not sure. I LOVE my ring, why can’t I remember to put the dang thing on sometimes? Anyway, my hand feels all weird. Do you forget your rings when you leave the house? If you used to but don’t anymore, what did you do to start remembering them?

I did just a couple of weeks ago and I felt SO strange!!! I couldn’t wait to get back home and put them back on (even though I took them off a couple of hours later to sleep!)

@MrsSmitty: Depending on your routine, maybe put the dish in the bathroom on the counter? So when you are finished brushing your teeth you will see it and put it on? I shower, Blow dry hair, eat, get dressed, brush teeth, PUT RING ON, put on make up on and go to work – works for me!

@MrsSmitty: No, because I never take them off.

@MrsSmitty: I do this once in a while because like you I usually take them off at night then put them on after i’m ready for work in the morning. On particularly hectic mornings I sometimes forget to put them on then halfway to work I realize that I did. Then its like I feel naked without it haha.

Surprisingly, no. The closest I’ve come was one time when I accidentally left for the gym wearing only my wedding band.

@MrsSmitty: I have forgot a few times leaving it on my elephant in the kitchen next to where I do the dishes…..this is a picture of my elephant, however I got it at bed bath and beyond in the states….they have all kinds of holders!! I try not to forget but at least at the end of the day I know where to find it and I’m not freaking out about where it is!!

I almost have a few times including today. I was about to walk out the door and realized I didn’t have it on. Another time I made it down the elevator to my parking garage and realized I didn’t have it on, since I hadn’t left yet I went back up to my apartment to get it!

To girls who dont take their rings off ever: Your rings should be as sanitary as your hands, if you never take them off gunk and dead skin etc gets in them which is a great place for bacteria to live. You have to take them off and clean it out regularly. My best friend never took hers off and one day I cleaned her ring in my jewellry soaking solution, there was so much gunk I had to throw away my solution.
Her ring looked amazing though after the clean.
Its gross, take ’em off an clean ’em ladies 🙂

I’ve definitely gotten in my car, driven around the block and come back home because I realized I forgot it! My usual routine is shower, brush teeth, get dressed, makeup, hair, leave the house. I have a dish in the bathroom where I put it before I get in the shower, and I usually remember while doing my hair, but somehow once I finish I’m out the door before I think about it again. I’m going to move the dish to my bedroom I think, next to my cell charger. There’s no way I can forget both my ring and my phone!

@MrsSmitty: I don’t have that problem as , except for cleaning, I never take my rings off.

I take mine off at night because my hands swell and it’s uncomfortable. Plus I’ve found my rhodium plating doesn’t wear off as fast if I take them off while sleeping. My morning routine is shower, dressed, makeup, and my ring is sitting next to my pill box (I -usually- don’t forget to take my diabetes meds!) so I grab the ring before I take out the day’s meds!
I’ve forgotten them both before – but it’s rare! 🙂

Yep, I forgot mine this morning :-/ I take off my ring and my watch when I get home and put them on before I leave in the morning, but some mornings I’m in a rush and forget. I’m annoyed with myself because I’m getting together with friends tonight and some haven’t seen the ring, but whatever, I have the rest of my life to show them my ring.

I wear three bracelets, a watch, and two rings everyday. They’re all on the same tray, so tend to never leave without putting on those things. If I only wore my e-ring, then I’d surely forget every once in a while.
@Mez03: You said elephant and I immediately knew what you were talking about. Here’s my giraffe! I love these holders.

I have forgotten sometimes since I take it off when I get home. I hate it!
