    I take mine off for any activity that would cause it to get wet or sticky (or take it off shortly thereafter to clean/dry it), because I can’t stand having water/liquid/any kind of fluid or gel or sticky substance (including sweat) under or in my rings, watches, or bracelets.  It drives me bonkers.  But other than that, I rarely remove it except to fidget with it/photograph it/etc.

    I take it off to put on lotions as I don’t like it getting gunked up… Also to clean it.

    I only take my ring off to shower or to do yard work. I sleep with it on because I get paranoid thinking it will somehow walk out of it’s jewelry box at night. I seriously had nightmares the entire night I slept without it!

    @mypinkshoes:  I agree.  When I come home from work and change into pj’s or comfy clothes, my ring comes off.

    My Fiance got me this adorable pewter ring holder I keep on my nightstand.  Heavy enough so that the cat can’t knock it over!

     I take my rings off when I shower,  put lotion on, wash dishes and work out.

    @Kazza:  I used to take mine off to sleep but now I find myself wearing it more and more. I take it off sometimes for sex, washing dishes, cooking with something messy, and putting on lotion.

    I have ring holders EVERYWHERE lol; by the bed, in the bathroom, in the kitchen, and in my “dressing room” (spare bedroom).

    Oh and I take it off when we’re moving furniture. We both graduated college and have started new careers (we didn’t live together before getting engaged) so there was and will be a lot of moving going on lol

    I take my ring off when putting on lotion, showering, putting on makeup and cooking. I sleep with it on comfortably though.

    not-so-patiently waiting on my e-ring, but wear my other rings to bed.

    My SIL works in hospital and takes her rings off at the start of shift – she works in surgical, so she has to sterilize and glove up frequently, sometimes without a ton of warning. For a “welcome to the family” wedding gift, we got her a ring holder necklace off of etsy. It looks like a plain circle, but has a hidden hinge & you just slip your rings onto the circle (sort of like the “hinged” hoop earrings, except it does not have a visible hinge and is a perfect circle). You can find them in heart shapes too 🙂

    I never ever take it off. A couple of my cousins (3) lost their ring when taking it off to wash dishes, take a shower, etc. So, I learned a lesson through them.

    I do when I am handling dirty dishes (more than just the dishwasher) or raw meats.

    Since I got it in January, I haven’t taken it off much at all. I was at the jewelry store day before yesterday though looking at rings for the Fiance and the lady offered to clean it for me.

    OMG it made a HUGE difference. She told me it had looked kind of dull on my hand and said it was most likely “soap scum” from showering with it on. I have now vowed to remove it to shower. It also makes washing my hair less painful.

    I take my ring off to wash dishes, or take a bath. Apart from that, it stays on my hand. I have a cute elephant ring holder we named Smeagol in the kitchen, and a little saucer in my bathroom for it to hang out in. I tried to sleep without it one night, but woke up in a panic thinking I had lost it. Since then, it goes to bed with me! Also, I have a care plan, so I can get it fixed if something happens to it.

    I take mine off when sleeping, showering, applying cream to skin, or anything that a little messy.
