  • poll: Do you sleep with your diamond wedding band?

    Yes, and no issues!

    Yes, but I’ve had issues.

    No, because I feel uncomfortable with it sleeping.

    No, too worried about a diamond falling out

    i slept with my ering and band until i had kids.  never knew it was a thing not to sleep with it.

    i took off my ering when i had kids, bc the diamond was scratching them when i would pick them up.

    now they aren’t babies anymore, but my ering is a little snug when i wear them together.  need to lose  few more pounds, then it will fit comfortably.

    My fingers swell at night so I don’t sleep with any rings on. Actually, I usually take it off as soon as I get home and don’t put it back on until the next morning unless I’m going out again that night.

    I cant sleep with any jewelry on. One time I forgot and left my rings on and in the middle of the night threw my hands up and clanked the rings loudly on the brass headboard. So no, no sleeping in rings for me.

    I don’t sleep with my rings on because it’s uncomfortable, my hands swell and I read the bed linens can weaken the prongs.

    Why is sleeping in your engagement ring a big no-no? I’ve worn rings on most of my fingers since I was a kid and the only time I remove them is when I’m going to the beach, applying sunscreen or doing something like painting a room. Never had an issue.

    @solitairelover:  I’ve slept with my pave band wedding ring for 11 years now, and no issues. I love the idea of never removing a wedding ring too :). The only time I removed it was to give birth. I also got an eternity band for our 11th anniversary and I sleep with that too, no issues.

    I never remove my plain wedding band, but did get quickly tired of waking with painful imprints of my princess  solitaire on my cheek & sides of neighboring fingers that wouldn’t completely fade until afternoon so ering sleeps in the nightstand. Swelling isn’t an issue for either; purposely chose 1/2 size up to account for weight fluctuations (plus like ring spinning) & don’t have tapered fingers so they never fall off on their own.

    I know people who never remove their rings. I, on the other hand, don’t wear my rings when I am at home and don’t wear them to sleep. Just personal preference — I find it uncomfortable to sleep with them on and don’t feel the need to wear them while I am home. For a long time during the pandemic I did not wear my diamond e-ring and wedding band because I was constantly washing my hands. Nowadays I switch between my diamond wedding band and a plain gold band when I leave home. I don’t wear my e-ring as often anymore (before the pandemic I wore it to work every single day but I’ve been working from home since last March and I have felt less inclined to wear it now when going out).

    I am a side sleeper, so I tuck one hand under the pillow when I sleep. The pressure, while not a lot, is probably not ideal for a diamond band. Over time, it can weaken a setting and put the diamonds at risk, so I remove my rings as soon as I come home. I wear no rings at home, so I can never accidentally forget to remove them when cleaning or cooking or moving something heavy. 

    I wore my first set 24/7 and Dh upgraded my rings, which was when I changed my habits. The difference in wear between the two sets is amazing. Wearing them for everything really can take a toll. I also don’t have to clean them as often. Win – win!

    My jeweler told me not to so I don’t anymore. I used to occasionally sleep wearing my rings but would only do it now when we travel. Prongs can loosen or get bent over time from getting caught in sheets and blankets, even platinum. You can even chip it by accident on the nightstand or headboard.
