Yes, I wear it all the time except for when I shower and when I sleep. I feel naked if I don’t have it on.

Wear daily, I scrub it a few times a week with a toothbrush and dish soap, every month or so I soak in hot water/white vinegar and some dish soap to remove any mineral build up. 

I don’t shower, do dishes, work out, or sleep with my rings on.

I love wearing my rings but I work with my hands and it’s not always appropriate to wear any kind of jewlery at all certain times. So I wear them when going out and what not. I also own a lot of antique/vintage jewelry so I’m very careful with it. Even with insurance some pieces just aren’t replaceable unfortunately. (Good excuse to buy more shinies lol)

I wear mine everyday during most of the day. I take it off for bathing, cooking, working out, and sleeping. I wash it in a sonic jewelry cleaner about twice a week. I take it every 6 months to get the diamonds/settings checked and to have it cleaned by the jeweler.

I don’t wear it while sleeping (my fingers swell, I don’t want to cause wear/tear to the tiny claw prongs, and I’m worried I’ll accidentally bonk my SO in the face with a big honking stone!), so it comes off as part of my nighttime getting-ready-for-bed routine and goes into a little velvet box on my nightstand. I put it on again when I wake up.  

I don’t wear it while showing, bathing, or swimming.  I also don’t wear it if I’m doing anything where there is risk of injury to me or damage to the ring (lifting weights, certain home improvement projects).  And I take it off if I am cooking something messy (kneading bread dough, making meatballs).  Otherwise, I feel it’s safest on my finger.

I keep a ring holder in the bathroom just off the kitchen and that’s where my ring goes on the times when I’m cooking something very messy.  If it’s not on my finger, it’s either on the ring holder or in the velvet box.  

I also clean mine every morning when getting ready.  I like how pretty and sparkly it looks when it’s always clean.

I wear mine all day every day. I wear gloves if I’m using harsh chemicals to clean, the only time I take it off if is when I do heavy work with my hands like gardening or DIY and when I’m working in the operating theatre.

I pretty much always wear my engagement ring. I took it off when I went to a water park, and I’ll take it off if I go swimming. I’ve taken it off on occasion if I’m doing some heavy-duty cleaning. I shower, sleep, and work out with it on. I take it off for a few seconds each night when I put lotion on. Mine’s a simple six-prong solitaire on a platinum band though so it’s pretty durable. I’ve gotten it professionally cleaned once in the 5 months I’ve had it, and recently I’ve started cleaning it once a week with Dawn and a baby toothbrush. I do notice that that makes it nice and sparkly.

Yes. My fiancé gets upset if I don’t. Sometimes if we’re kuat sitting around on the weekend in the house I’ll leave it off but generally it’s always on

I wear my engagement ring everyday. I do take it off when I sleep and do dishes, cook, put lotion on, all those kinds of things. Just as a personal preference. 

I’ve not had it long so I’ve only cleaned it witch dawn and water once and now have dazzle drops that I’m excited to try out.
