    I rarely wear mine. I put it on when I need to go out (to family and friends, or with SO), but not for random errands like groceries and even work (I work with archives and I have to put gloves on, so instead of risking to forget or to lose my ring somewhere, I just don’t put it on in the morning). 

    When I am at home I don’t wear it either.

    Maybe she meant it was too big, as in it might fall off?

    Mine comes off when I get home from work. I don’t wear any jewelry around the house.

    I only wear my ring on special occasions.  Most days day I wear a Berricle 5 stone or my plain “back-up” band that matches my husband’s.

    I always take it off for: lotion, shower, bed, cleaning, dishes, working out (rare, lol). I also sometimes take it off around the house for stupid reasons like “it’s cold and I want to sit on my hands while I watch TV”

    I wear my “stunt double” when I go to the dog park. Gotta show I’m taken, but there are so many mouthy dogs I don’t need an accidental swallowing/lost stone!

    I don’t wear it around the house or to run errands.  I also don’t sleep with it on.  I put it in t

    In the morning before work and take it off for my lunch break abs after work.

    I take mine off before bed and put it on in the morning after I shower.

    If I wear it while I sleep, it gets tight

    I only take mine off to garden, work with livestock, working out, wash my hands, shower and put on lotion. Other than that, she’s always sparkling proudly on my finger! I feel so naked without it!

    I probably only wear my ring about 60-70% of the time. I baby it a lot and don’t wear it to bed, to the bar, to the gym, to do anything messy etc etc…

    @Pixienickie: 
    I take my ring off for the following:

    Bedtime (my body temp changes and hands swell so don’t want discomfort through the night)
    Anytime I do something dirty around the house (baking, cleaning etc)
    Anytime I put on hand sanitizer, wash my hands, shower etc (it gets in the diamonds and over time they look “dirty” and I notice it big time when its my 2 times a year inspection and my ring gets cleaned haha)  
    When I go to work (I’m a nurse, I don’t want bacteria etc in my ring and passing it along to patients as I go. YES we wear gloves but at the same time, where I work its also policy)

    It may seem like I never wear my ring, but i wear it all the time when I go out and when I can. I don’t have a big fancy ring, but I love my ring and yes I wish I could wear it all the time but I don’t leave it behind when I go out of the house if I don’t have to!
