I leave mine on 24/7. I take it off if I’m, say, making homemade meatballs or using the diamond polisher at work. Or gardening with heavy nitrogen fertilizers.

You can’t really hurt it and I get my prongs checked often enough. Mine’s also insured. To me, the more I take it off (gym, shower, sleep that’s 3 times a day!) the more likely I am to drop it in the sink or misplace it, no matter how often I try to put it in the same place every time. My cats also like small shiny objects. And I simply feel naked without it.

I only take it off I’m cooking something like meatballs, or doing some really strenuous cleaning.  I also take it off when I’m volunteering at the animal shelter, because not only is it in a sketchy neighborhood, but there are just wayyyy too many nooks and crannies when you’re taking the animals in and out of the cages and such.  I wear it to the gym, shower, sleep, beach, etc.

I take mine off when I shower, go swimming or if I’m doing something that will make it get really dirty like gardening/baking etc.

I don’t take it off when I sleep but sometimes I think I should.  I’m a stomach sleeper and I usually have my hand under my face, I’ve poked myself in the eye more than once with my ring.

Oh, we’ve also decided to get “fake rings” for our honeymoon.  We are each going to get cheap silver bands.  We will be spending a lot of time on the beach and I’m not comfortable wearing my ring at the beach or leaving it in the hotel room (I’ve had things stolen from my hotel room in the past).

my ring came with a chip in it, it’s 4th generation so it’s been around, so i’m kinda paranoid about it. we’re going to get it fixed, but until then there’s a weak spot. plus because it’s been in his family for so long i don’t want anything to happen to it, so i take it off when i’m in water, cooking something that will get my hands dirty, and when i sleep.

I take it off when I shower and go to bed for now but that’s because on of the prongs is damaged and I’m not getting it fixed until this weekend (we have a family wedding and I want to show off! 🙂 I would probably leave it on all the time if it weren’t for that. Other than heavy cooking, gardening, and some of my DIY projects that might damage it (resin is not fun!).

When I put lotion on

I take mine off occasionally–I’ve done it while painting our apartment, making turkey burgers or cleaning with bleach.  For the most part, I leave it on all the time.  I’m like ejs4y8: the more I take it off, the more likely I am to lose it!

I take mine off when I go to bed at night (I’ve been known to hit someone in the face and our walls are pretty thin so I don’t want to do any damage there), when I shower (it would always get stuck when I washed my hair…I’ve lost enough as it is), when I’m heavy cleaning, cooking with raw meat and gardening.

I agree the the whole “the more I take it off the more likely I am to lose it” saying. Though I take it off sometimes when I get in the pool (when I remember anyways haha) because it seems like I remember hearing/reading somewhere that the chlorine can damage it. Is that true?

I take it off when I shower and to put some lotion on. I also try to take it off when I’m going to bed and put it on a ring holder…but that’s only if I remember. Other than that, it stays on always.

I have a bowl in our house where I stash the rings, so I only take it off when I’m at home for cooking, washing, showers and gardening.  One of our rings is wood, so I have to be really careful!

I have to get mine resized, so until I do it is just a little loose… and that makes me just a little paranoid! I take it off to sleep, shower, exercise, and wash my hands. But once it fits properly I plan to keep it on as much as possible!

I take mine off when I get home from work and leave it off untill I leave for work the next morning. I am always cooking, washing my hands, showering w/e and I feel like the less wear and tear the better.

Cooking, cleaning, eating, sleeping, showering- I’ve noticed I take my engagement ring off alot because I don’t want to hurt it or get it dirty.  I think once we get married though I’ll be wearing my “other” ring more often.
