I never take my ring off.. initially I stopped sleeping with it on b/c the lady in the store said fibers will get on the diamond but I dont want to loose it and plus I just dont want to take it off :-).  Just clean it with a toothbrush/dishwashing liquid in the morning and it will shine like new even after you condition your hair and get gunk on it.

I don’t shower or sleep with it, but I think I might be the exception.

I almost never take mine off, but I know my sister takes hers off to shower every day.  (I do think she sleeps with it.)

I NEVER take mine off! I shower with it, sleep with and go to the gym with it on (but I wear gloves to prevent excess scratches on the gold from the weights)

@frozen yogurt, you’re not alone. I take mine off when I sleep, shower, go to the gym, do dishes… maybe I take it off too much, but I’ve been really careful about it. My ring is tanzanite, which is apparently more brittle than other gems, so I’m pretty paranoid about it.

I take mine off when I shower for sure, or do dishes or cook or anything that would get it dirty, but I usually do sleep with it on.  Basically I just try to keep it as safe and as clean as possible so I don’t do any damage to it.  Wouldn’t want to harm my precious =)

I take mine off when I shower and sleep, and sometimes when I’m doing dishes. I keep the ring box FI gave it to me in on my dresser and always stash it there when sleeping or showering. I don’t want to damage it while I sleep, as I toss and turn A LOT.

I shower and sleep with my ring on.  I hadn’t heard about the fibers things about sleeping with it before.  But sometimes when I shower the conditioner makes my ring slippery and that makes me nervous, but I just double check for it a lot to make sure it’s still there and didn’t fall off or anything. But I generally don’t take it off.

I am the ultimate paranoid bride to be.  Would you believe I don’t wear my ring the majority of the time?  Basically I wear my ring only if I’m going out…excluding when I go to the gym of course.

I wear pretty much all the time even when I sleep.  However, I do take it off when in yoga class; and to shower and when cooking – I have platinum band and I grab pots and pans where the metals clank and scratches the ring.  Generally, I’m not afraid of water, but I am afraid of the platinum getting scratched by coming in contact with other metals/hard surfaces.

I only take mine off when I shower and when I go to work – I’m a waitress. I sleep in it because I hate having it off for that long. I take it off when I shower because I’m afraid my slippery products will make it come off, plus when I get out the shower I put on lotion and hair products that would dull it, so I just do my whole getting ready thing with my ring in its box on my sink. I wear it on a necklace when I work because I often handle food and I don’t want it to get dirty. I should probably take it off when cooking and cleaning but I’d rather scratch it a little than lose it, and I lose everything!

I take it off to shower because I don’t want it to fall off with the conditioners and stuff! Other than that I rarely take it off… sometimes when I cook if it’s going to get slimy.

When I went to have it’s 6 month checkup/cleaning… just standing there for 15 minutes with it off felt so incredibly strange….
