Hey Bees! I was curious as to when, or if, you take off your e-ring or wedding set? A recent comment about being worried about losing the ring in the shower or at the gym made me wonder how many bees wear their ring at all times.
I personally take mine off to sleep, and then put it on again in the morning after my shower. Mainly because I was told that rubbing on the sheets can weaken the prongs and increase the chance of losing your diamond. That, and I sleep with my hands by my face, I’d probably poke my eye out! Haha. I also dislike when my fingers swell when I’m at the gym, so I usually leave my e-ring at home and wear a larger sized ring I received from FI when we were dating, sort of as a ‘placeholder.’
So bees, when do you take your rings off? Do you go without them in public, like at the gym? For what reasons do you take them off/never take them off?

Never. Only if I put on hand lotion lol.

I take my e-ring off when I’m showering, sleeping, working out or cleaning. Wedding band only when I shower.

Honestly, I take mine off as soon as I get home. It has a very high setting, and I am always hitting it on things. I am also a clean freak, so I use a lot of chemicals that I don’t want to expose my pretty too. I always put it on when I leave the house, even if it’s just to check the mail.

Only when I clean and thats if I use soft scrub or Clorox.

I take my e-ring off when I cook, shower, clean, get ready in the mornings…it’s basically only on when I’m at work or out of the house. Lounging around the house, I prefer to have it off. Wedding band only comes off when I shower. I wear that sucker everywhere!

Ditto for lotion…It grosses me out to get it all over the ring. But nothing else. I even wear it to play soccer.

I take it off when I clean, shower, exercise, and work. I used to wear it to work but working in a group home sometimes the situation isn’t fun and I have to take it off anyway and I don’t want to lose it so I wear my promise ring in it’s place (lower, simpler ring so I don’t have to take it off).

I’ve recently started taking mine off at night or when I’m cleaning or washing dishes. I had a stone to fall out of my invisible setting and was told by the jeweler that I had to be extra careful because of this setting. Now I’m paranoid and am constantly looking at my ring to make sure I haven’t lost another stone!

I take my e-ring off when I shower, work out, and washing dishes. I’m actually more afraid of it falling off than getting dirty! We sent both e-ring and wedding band to get resized smaller after we got engaged but it still slides around my finger a bit and makes me nervous.

I only take it off when I shower, put lotion on, cleaning with chemicals or cooking something that I have to get my hands into (meatballs, kneading dough). A few weeks ago after taking a shower I forgot to put it back on and then we headed out to meet friends for dinner, we were half way to the restaurant when I realized and made FI turn back around so I could get it. He thought I was being silly but I felt completely lost without it.

I can’t even wear my engagement ring right now because I jammed my finger and the knuckle is so swollen that my ring won’t fit. :/ But when I did wear it, I would put it on after my morning shower, and take it off when I went to bed at night. I would also take it off while exercising or doing kickboxing.
