    I take them off when doing major gardening (think, digging up a palm tree, not potting a plant) or if touching super sticky dough or scrubbing the grout. Everything else is doable with the rings, and I give a good ol’ rinse when I’m done. I hope it doesn’t freak out my hubby, but these are diamond and gold, not plastic on plastic. They’ll hold up! I don’t like to leave anything valuable unattended. I’m constantly checking my finger when it’s gone, and the only other things I own that are $ are cars and you bet your toosh I’m double locking those on the way to go anywhere. I’m paranoid.

    I never take mine off unless the FH wants to polish it.  When he does have it I keep checking my hand constantly.  Drives me up a wall not to have it on.

    Yeah, whenever I shower or whatever I usually take them off.  I use huge rubber kitchen gloves when I do the dishes though, so I’ll keep them on then.  I’m so paranoid about losing it or forgetting them somewhere!  I’ve only left the house once without it on and it bugged me a lot:)  It’s amazing how attached we get to them!

    I have a plain wedding band which I NEVER take off. If I’m doing something dirty or handling raw meat, I wear gloves. My e-ring is very elaborate, with lots of little diamonds, so I don’t wear that around the house, just when I go out – but sometimes I do forget to put it on! I actually can’t get the e-ring on right now (pregnant), and I miss wearing it so much! Luckily the wedding band still fits fine.

    I take my ring off when I go to bed (put it in the ring box) and I usually put it on right before I’m about to leave the house in the morning, so it’s off when I work out, shower, get dressed, put on make up. I sometimes take it off if I’m doing dishes or cooking. And I take it off when I exercise if I go at night.

    I used to keep my ring in its box when I slept, but it made my husband sad. So, I got used to it on b/c it meant a lot to him! I can understand why one would want to take it off. I can’t stand things touching me when I sleep, rings, hair, undies, everything included.

    I take them off when necessary; showering, dishes, dirty work, etc. But I will say this morning I almost forgot to put it on before I walked out the door LOL… ALMOST

    Just have my e-ring but I take it off to sleep (my hands swell at night and i wake up with a throbbing finger if i dont), shower/get ready, and if i’m doing something really messy like painting. Although lately I’ve been leaving it on more for showering and doing messy stuff. 

    When my mom was helping us paint our house I noticed when we were almost done that she’d left her diamond earrings and rings on. I was like OMG you need to take those off so they don’t get dirty! Her opinion? “They’re diamonds. They’ll clean” haha. So I guess maybe I’ll get less antsy with time.

    I take mine off a lot: doing dishes, showering, gardening, cleaning, washing hands, anything involving water, sleeping.

    Mine have a tendancy to come off when around water.  I need to get them resized again but haven’t since we just did it.

    I take mine off it I’m doing something dirty.  Usually I shower and do dishes with it on although I question if this makes the white gold “yellow” faster. 

    For example, I was spray painting once with my ring on.  Not a good idea.  All the flecks of paint with all the diamond flecks.  Hard to clean.

    I take mine off when sleeping and showering for sure.  for dishes or gardening, its a toss up, sometimes yes and sometimes no.  I use to take it off for dishes and gardening  but now i do it so often that i just leave it on.

    I take mine off for showering and dishes….and sometimes after I wash my hands, because I hate the feeling of water under my ring!  So random!  And I, too, have almost left my apartment several times before remembering to put my ring back on!  🙂
