I take my ERing off when I sleep, shower or do cleaning around the house. Even if I’m sitting around in my pjs I like to wear my ERing, I still find myself gazing at it daily 🙂

I take it off when I shower or go swimming, when doing the washing up and when cooking with things that germy (like raw chicken or pork mince). Or when gardening and generally dirty stuff. But that’s it 🙂 it always gets left in the same places though so I know where it is! 😀

honeysag79:  Sleep, workout, ocean/lake/river, heavy labor

When I’m at the house, my rings sit on the same hook when they’re off.

When we’re travelling or I’m going to be at the beach, I wear my Qalo ring, which we got blessed along with our wedding bands at our wedding.

honeysag79:  I take mine off to moisturise because it kind of sticks to it and means it needs cleaning but other than that I only takeit off it I’m doing a really messy/rough task. I shower in it, do the dishes, exercise etc. None of that has damaged it. What did damage it was when it spun round on my finger and I accidentally slammed it in a cupboard hinge, so basically they’re pretty tough and designed to last but aren’t indestructable if you accidentally slam them in a hinge. The main thing to do is to get the setting checked by a jeweler periodically so that if the stones are coming loose you can get it tightened before they fall out 🙂

honeysag79:  i only take it off when I go in the shower or I am doing heavy dute baking. When I do take it off, I put it in my safe spot.

honeysag79:  I’ve only been wearing it for two days, but so far I’ve only taken it off when I sleep because it’s fairly high and has a lot of pave, so I’m worried about hurting me or my FI, and/or it snapping off (which is unrealistic haha). I’ve worn it in the pool, the shower and doing dishes. It’s white gold, diamond and moissanite. My promise ring was white gold and diamonds, and I NEVER took it off. I mean, never, and it was perfectly fine. 

 

Edit: I do take off my rings when I’m doing cooking with raw meat. I forgot about that.

I take it off when I’m handling raw meat or dough, using harsh cleaning chemicals, and when I clean my ring itself. Otherwise I leave it on.

I take mine off when I get ready for bed in the evening, when I take a bath or shower, when I go swimming, and when I do things like wash the dishes. I put it in the same place everytime I take it off.

honeysag79:  Pretty much never. Sometimes when I shower, but not usually. I’ll take them off when I go to get a massage, because I don’t want the oil/lotion in my rings, and I put them in a special pocket in my purse.

I take off my promise ring (10k white gold with diamonds) when I shower or wash dishes or when doing something dirty/strenuous. I will do the same with my e-ring.

I take it off when I work out, clean, or shower.  I also don’t wear it when I sleep.  I have a ring holder in the kitchen and I want one for my dresser too.

Only when I go to the gym, and I put it in a little zipped bag.
