@lucygirl1:  I wear it at night.. except when I have eaten too much salt and it doesnt fit!!! I take it off to shower (I take off all of my jewelry though) and exercise.

To clean mine, I heat up some windex in the microwave for about 20 seconds, put the ring in for a minute and then clean with a soft toothbrush. Maybe once every 2-3 weeks or if I am going somewhere special

You should not clean your ring too often. I take mine off the shower and sleep.

I wear my rings at night. I pretty much only take them off when I’m showering, cleaning, exercising, doing something with my hands, etc. I don’t clean mine that often, though I do wash my hands with them on. I used to clean it with a soft brush and soap, but I gave up on that. I get free cleanings at the jewelry store, so I’ll let them drop it in the sonic cleaner when we’re in there if they aren’t busy.

I wear my ring all the time, sleeping, showering, working out, etc. It’s really comfortable and I do have a lifetime warranty on it. Sleeping, I am not knocking my ring around, so I would think it would be even safer. Plus, life is short, and I want to wear my ring all the time 🙂 

As for the store cleaners, I would only leave my ring as long as it’s recommended on the bottle. Soaking all night probably isn’t good. 

You have SUCH a pretty ring!!!!

I leave mine on while sleeping but take it off while showering or using cleaning products.  I clean it by spraying some Windex on it and using a soft toothbrush.  It sparkles like crazy afterwards!

I wouldn’t leave the ring in cleaner overnight.  A little cleaning every once in a while is best.  Your FMIL is right about sleeping with your rings – most of us move quite a bit when we sleep And don’t realize it.  Snagging a prong on a blanket, for example, could damage your ring and most jeweler s don’t recommend it.  The other things to be aware of are to keep your rings away from abrasive and household cleaners, avoid wearing your ring in the pool or contact with bleach-based cleaners (chlorine can react with metals in the gold alloy and weaken or “pit” it), and to avoid wearing your ring when working roughly with your hands.

I wear my ring all the time I only take it off when washing dishes and cleaning. My ring is insured so if there is a problem with the diamond falling out its covered.
