Hey ladies! As a waiting bee with a proposal just around the corner (eep!), I was curious at to how often you take your rings off, if ever. Do you sleep with it still on? Do the dishes with it in? And if you take it off, where do you keep it?

I do almost everything with it on. The only time I take it off is when I’m washing my face, or putting products in my hair.

It varies, but I certainly dont’ wear them all the time! I always take both my rings off to sleep (trialled sleeping with my wedding ring on, but I was getting really dry skin on my finger during the day and the recovery time is working for me!) and when preparing raw meat or fish (icky germs)

Oh and I take them off when having a manicure!

I take mine off when I come to the gym, and usually when I shower. Sometimes I take mine off when I sleep or eat, just depends.

I usually only take mine for karate as there’s nothing more likely to break your fingers than to punch whilst wearing rings! I’ll remove if I’m using cleaning products too.

I take them off to shower (afraid it’ll come off) and sleep (my fingers get kind of swollen when i sleep sometimes & it’s uncomfortable). i used to take them off for work (i’m a nurse), but i’ve started wearing them

I leave it on the vast majority of the time, but it comes off for showers, cleaning, and anything else where I’ll be immersing my hands in liquids for a while. I wear a stand in set to the beach for that reason.
I sleep in them no problem, though.

I take it off at night when I go to bed, and don’t put it on until I’m about to leave the house for work. I’ll also take it off when washing my hands (workplace policy) or cooking.

I only take mine off if I’m going to be touching something like lotion or forming hamburgers etc… I sleep and shower in my rings.

I take it off to: shower, wash my face, put on any type of lotion or hair product, wash dishes, clean, and work out. Basically, I wear them all the time, unless my hands are in something.

I only take mine off when I’m in the shower or cooking with my hands. I don’t want any meat in the grooves haha.

Thanks for all the replies, ladies! I’ll definitely be keeping this in mind 🙂

I take it off for bed, sports, showering and cleaning – my ring came with a care guide and it said not to wear it if you were using things like bleach, so…
And the more I look at my other ring (same stone) which I haven’t been so conscientious with, the more I worry that I’ve damaged it!

I don’t run with it, sleep with it, swim with it, do dishes with it, and there are plenty of Sundays where we lay around all day in PJ’s and I never put it on. My diamond is set really high and I’ve tried to nap with it on and I’m always stabbing myself, although I’m sure I could get use to it.
