    I take mine off as soon as I get home, but I’ve gotten into the habit that I *almost always remember to wear it outside of the house.

    I take mine off mostly just to shower and sleep. I’d scratch up my face if I kept it on while sleeping! Oh and cleaning too…I don’t want any gunk getting in my ring!

    But mostly my other jewelry, I take off when I get home. Especially if I have a chunky necklace or bracelet on. I’m ready to be comfy! My rings feel like a part of me, so I wear them most of the time.

    I do take it off to cook, clean, wash dishes, shower, sleep, and since I really love doing artsy stuff, erm…to do that. I also might take it off when in rehearsal – I am an actress so sometimes I have (and since I am VERY recently engaged (like a month) and I am in a movement-oriented show right now) physically engaging shows like dance or movement, I’ll take it off then. (Don’t want anything to happen – I’m SUPER protective of it, and just thinking of doing cartwheels or handstands with it scares me). But, I’ll mostly leave it on when I’m hanging out after work at home.

    Does anyone else take it off to sleep, or what if you are wearing gloves in the winter?

    (great question!)

    I take mine off at night and then I don’t put it on again until I’ve showered and gotten dressed. If I’m doing dishes, I’ll leave it on top of the TV in the living room so it’s as far away from drains as I can get it :).

    OP: My mom sounds a lot like you. She takes hers off when she gets home and puts them on right before she leaves the house again. It’s completely up to you and what you’re comfortable with. There’s not really a ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ (except taking it off in bars to flirt with people or something horrible :)).

    I pretty much take mine off when I am home as well. I don’t wear it to clean, do dishes, shower, or sleep. I also always take it off to exercise. I am training for a marathon relay right now, and if I run with it on my finger swells. Also, when I life weights, I feel like the corrugated metals hand grips scratch the gold.

    i’m not a ring person so i usually don’t wear it unless i’m going out. i think once i get my band though, i’ll probably wear the band all the time and wear the e ring for special occasions.

    As much as I love wearing my e-ring and band, I take them off as soon as I get home from work.  They both come off with my earrings, watch, and any other jewelry.  Then, I slip into something more comfortable (like sweats or my pj’s). I take them off when cooking, bathing, or doing anything that might dirty them.  I always wear them if I’m going out…whether it’s during the week or weekend!

    I wear mine all the time (including to sleep) EXCEPT:

    (1) Showering

    (2) While putting on lotion

    (3) While doing dishes or any cleaning with abrasive cleaners

    (4) While doing any working out that involves gripping things (this last one was INSISTED ON by my jeweler who said that lifting/gripping weights with the ring on will slowly bend it out of shape and potentially work the diamonds out of their holds).

    That’s it.

    I take mine of when I wash dishes, take a shower, put on lotion, do something gross with my hands (like working with raw meat or painting), and at night so that it doesn’t scratch my face or get dinged up.  The rest of the time it is on my finger, even when I’m by myself at home, but mostly because I just love to stare at her 🙂

    I take mine off when I change into PJs. Sometimes that’s shortly after I get home from work, sometimes it’s not until I go to bed. I put it back on after my shower in the morning.

    In between, I take it off for dish washing, hair product applying, cleaning, or any rough sort of activity. Also, off when I go to the beach.

    So far I’ve been wearing it in the winter, even though it’s a pain with gloves. Once I’m wearing a wedding band, maybe I’ll wear the e-ring less in the winter.

    I take it off to sleep, shower, exercise, or clean. Sleep, shower, exercise: goes in its jewelry box. Clean: if its a quick clean, I’ll set it on the counter. If I’m doing a major cleaning, it goes in the jewelry box.

    It’s become such a habit that I haven’t forgotten to put it on after one of these things for a long time. At first I forgot to put it on it quite often after showering, then would be all sad at work.

    I take mine off when I work out, cook, do dishes and shower. I put it on my ring holder in the kitchen so if I forgot to put it on and freak out I always know where it is.

    I used to take mine off and put it on a little spot in the bathroom then I’d shower, do my makeup and hair, then put it back on. Well once my fiance saw it in there and hid it as a joke. Needless to say I nearly had a heart attack and now I NEVER take it off except when I’m applying hand lotion and that’s only for about 30 seconds.
