I take mine off for doing most things like washing dishes, doing laundry, cleaning, showering, sleeping, putting on lotion, etc.  I mostly wear it when I leave the house.  I am just really careful with it.  So to answer your question, no I do not think you’re nuts.

Congrats on the engagement!  Your ring is gorgeous!

I wear mine all the time- sleeping, gym, dishes, etc. I only take it off when I’m cleaning the bathroom or when I will be using my hands to mix food while cooking.

I take mine off everytime I get home. Chemicals from cleaning solutions, unnatural oils, etc ruin the quality of the diamond. I do leave it on to wash my hands because my jeweler says soft soap is okay.

When I first got engaged back in August, I would take it off to do ANYTHING because I was so nervous about damaging the ring in any way.  Now, I wash my hands with it on and cook, unless I’m handling meat.  I still don’t sleep with it on.  I’ll take it off to shower and put on lotion.  I’ll usually take it off when I’m cleaning the house as well.  Lately, I’ve been pretty good about cleaning my ring every few weeks to make sure it’s nice and sparkly.  I try not to take it off too often because I get scared I’ll lose it; I’ve had a couple scares!   Your ring is beautiful by the way!

I take mine off when I’m doing the dishes or working with raw meat (like cutting chicken, etc)… And I don’t wear it my job – at a can and bottle redemption center… But that’s a very gross job 🙂 So I wear a stand in when I’m there

I leave my ring on to do everything except applying lotion or self tanner… however my ring is a plain solitaire so it doesn’t have those little stones like yours. I probably would take it off for washing hands and stuff like you mentioned due to the little stones.

I take mine off usually when I shower, do dishes, etc. The first gift I asked my then Fiance for after we got engaged was a ring holder to put by the sink in the kitchen. I ordered me a beautiful one of Etsy for Christmas. I take it off when I do weights at the gym, but not usually when I do things like running and cycling and yoga. I sometimes take it off when I sleep, but usually not. I do not wear it swimming or to the beach.

I hardly ever take mine off- usually only when I knw something Im doing is going to get the ring dirty such as kneading dough or lots of other baking related things!

I take mine off when I sleep – and do dishes, cooking, swimming, etc. 

I don’t take it off to do things like laundry, or day to day chores, but anything where my hands themselves will be dirty or immersed in substances, that ring comes off. I have a ring holder by the sink that someone bought us off of our registry or I put it in my jewelry box. 

I know some women are really paranoid about losing it (I am too, who isn’t?) but I also don’t want to ruin it accidentally.

In the beginning I ALWAYS took it off to do everything.  Now, I leave it on when I wash my hands, but take it off if I’m doing dishes, when I’m showering, sleeping and I think that’s it.

I don’t, but it’s because I’m lazy. And also I have a bezel set ring, much sturdier than my old prong set ring.

Off for cooking, dishes, gym, beach, and lotion application (apparently the oils are quite bad for it).
