    I have taken mine off twice since I got it, and both times were to make meatloaf!

    I take mine off when I shower, sleep, excercise, sometimes even when I come home from work I will put on my pj’s and take off all of my jewelery! I always wear my bridal set when I go to work, or whenever I go out!

    I take mine off at night before I shower and go to bed, then put it back on when I get home from work.  On weekends I only take it off to shower, sleep, and wash dishes.

    I hardly ever wear my real ring anymore haha.  I already had to have a small side stone replaced since it fell out while I was at work one day (working retail is not kind to my ring).  Since then, I bought a diamonique ring from QVC that I wear everyday to work (which I get SO many compliments on by the way…nobody ever thinks it’s a fake!).  I keep my real ring in its box & only wear it on special occassions (holidays, anniversaries, ect).  🙂

    @justagirlxo88:  Hahah! Ring cheese!!!

    My E ring is 18K white gold so I hear it might be a little soft so I am so careful when washing my hands and take it off when I’m in the house. I keep it in its original ring box and clean once a week.

    I almost never wear mine! Used to be I took it off the moment I got home from work, now my job is completely inappropriate for wearing anything nice. I wouldn’t even wear my nice runners to work. 

    So, it sems as though now I maybe wear it once a week. Sometimes I miss it and I put it on while watching tv or whatever, but for the most part it stays in the box until we go out for dinner or something…

    My ring is insured, so I don’t worry tooo much about it. But I am not careless, I take it off when I use harsh chemicals. I also take it off when I’m dressing and showering. My prongs are claw prongs and they tend to catch. I wear a lot of silk, so I am super cautious. It’s a big ring, but I adapted very well. 🙂

    Rarely take my rings off.

    I am an Encore Bride… and I knew this about me, so I chose my current rings accordingly.  (I was married the first time for over 20 years, and almost never took my rings off… they had some very tiny diamonds, but were mostly gold)

    This time round…

    My Rings (an ERing and 2 WBands) are vastly different from my last set.  My ERing is very cocktail ring like… and has 47 Diamonds, including a Feature Diamond at .80 Carats.  My “sparkly” WBand is 0.55 Carats.

    I still wear this set almost 24/7×365… the exceptions are if I plan to do any Home Renovations – Painting – Deep Cleaning – Gardening – Baking / Kneading Dough – Snorkeling – or visit a Third World Country

    All situations where my Diamonds could become either the centre of unwanted attention or be harmed.

    In those situations, I put them safely away (Hotel / Ship Safe… or leave em at home in our Safety Deposit Box)… and just choose to wear my Plain 14K Wedding Band.

    As for how often, I take em off.  Almost never.  We’ve been married over 3 months now, and its only been a few times (mostly on our Cruise Honeymoon when we went ashore to do more adventurous things).

    I pretty much wear my rings around the clock… to bed, in the shower, etc.  Clean them aprox once a month with Gentle Jewellery Cleaner, and take em in for inspection / professional cleaning by my Jeweller once every 3 or 4 months.

    They look as good as the day I got em.  Even my Jeweller says they look amazing.

    Hope this helps,

    i NEVER take my ring off…not for any super sentimental reason, but because if I do it’s almost garuanteed that I’ll forget about it and then freak out thinking I lost it! haha.

    I wear my plain wedding band all the time. I take on and off my engagement ring when I’m cooking, cleaning, sleeping, showering, etc. to protect the stone.
