Moneyfoot: If I leave my house, even for ten minutes to go to the corner grocery store, I’ll wear either my set or just the band. I never leave the house without one or both of them.
However, once I get home, they come off first thing. I have a ring holder in my kitchen and one in our bedroom. I never wear my rings in the house. I don’t really see the point. I don’t cook in them, clean, shower, do crafts, etc. They’re too nice and I love them so much, which makes me anal about keeping them sparkly and as dirt-free as possible.

I wear mines all the time. Lifetime warranty plus insurance. I feel naked without it

I wear mine all the time and never, ever take them off. I occasionally slip them off to see if they’ll come off but keep them on for showering, gardening, working out…everything.
They’re insured and if they wear down or I lose my diamond, we would just replace it. I’d rather wear it out than keep it preserved. My Gramma wore her wedding ring until the back part was as thin as a hair and then gave it my sister for her to wear as a RHR when my Grampa died. I would have no problem with that happening to my mine. But they currently do badly need cleaning 😉

I wear my ring all the time. My hands often swell so I got my ring larger so I could still wear it all them time. The only time I take them off is when I shower, when I apply lotion and when I stick my hands in food (for obvious hygene reasons). Sometimes if I am doing a lot of cleaning I will take it off because the hot and cold water makes my fingers swell and shrink plus it gets my ring dirty. It may seem odd but I always wear it while sleeping in case of an emergency.
My ring is insured and had a protectio plan so I just wear it all the time, work, sleep, excercis, and lounging around the house 🙂

I wear it all the time outside the house. Inside, I take it off when I know I’ll be doing something messy and when I sleep and shower. I have a lifetime warranty, but I try not to be too nonchalant with it because I love the way the stone is set (it seems to be a bit higher in the setting than some of the others of the exact same style that I looked at, if that makes sense) and would hate to have it be reset and be not quite right.

I wear my set whenever I am not cooking or cleaning.
I would be fine with just wearing my band, but my husband wants me to wear both rings.

I take mine off when I take off my makeup before bed and put it back on after I finish doing my hair the next morning and wear it all day long.

I haven’t taken my ering off since we got engaged, other than the appraisal for insurance and when I do my hair and make-up. It felt so weird to wear at first, but now it feels weird not having it on. I am planning on saudering the ering to my wedding band so they will just be one and not rub on each other.

I don’t wear my rings a lot either unless I am leaving the house for work or going for longer errands. My fingers swell often and I don’t like wearing them when I could scratch myself or get them caught in my hair.

I’ve been thinking more about this, and while I agree about keeping my ring nice and not gunked up or damaged, I wear my ring for ME, not for anyone else. I don’t put it on when we go out to show anyone else anything at all. I wear it because I love it. I love to look at it between chapters when I read at night; I like to see how it looks different wet in the shower; I like for it to catch my eye when I am in casual clothes and have been vacuuming and dusting all day. If I took it off when I came home daily or when I went to sleep or took a shower, I would miss seeing all those things. Maybe I wouldn’t have to clean it so much, but it would take the joy out of it for me.

I wear my e-ring every day and most of the time – only take it off to shower (because I’m afraid it will slip off with all the products), to sleep (afraid to scratch myself or him in the middle of the night), and at the gym if I plan to lift weights or grab on to anything that’s hard/metal or might scratch the platinum.

I wear both bands when I go out but as soon as I get home, into the jewelry box they go!

I wear it most of the time, except when sleeping, showering, cooking and cleaning dishes. I wouldn’t sleep with it cause who knows what I do during the night xD

Moneyfoot: That’s funny about the whole fingers swelling in the middle of the night. I thought I was the only one that happened to. I didn’t really wear any rings before I got engaged, but after I got my engagement ring, I just felt so uncomfortable with it on. The first night I had it on, it just felt so tight in the morning, so after that I just never wore it to bed. A couple of months later, I decided just to switch the ring over to my right finger when I went to bed since it was smaller, but then I got tired of doing that and just decided to just leave it on my left finger and now I’m used to it. I wear my ring to gym and pretty much leave it on all the time except when I’m cleaning or cooking with raw meat or if I’m doing my hair and using hairspray lol.

Thank you for the replies! This is so awesome!
I do make an attempt to wear them often. If I’m at home and I don’t have my hands in dirt, rocks, cleaning supplies and such, I’ll wear them. Or at least try to remember to put them on.
We have them insured and have a warranty on them. I have to have them checked every six months to make sure the prongs are okay and no stones are loose. So, if that does happen, I can get them repaired at no cost.
I think that the reason I don’t wear mine much is because I’ve only been engaged since Feb and married since June (long story). So, I’m just not quite used to wearing rings on that finger. I love rings actually; I wear one on each thumb and another on my right ring finger. So, I think I just need to adjust to wearing rings on my left ring finger.
My husband wears his constantly. The only time he takes it off is when he’s working on the car so it doesn’t get gouged or so he doesn’t get it caught on something. He will also take it off of he’s working with really destructive chemicals at work (he’s a scientist). But, he’s used to his because it is a ring that I bought him 14 years ago. He wanted it as his wedding band because that ring means the world to him (we’ve been together for 17 years).
My parents were married 56 1/2 years and I can only remember once that my mom did not wear her band and that was when she had to get it resized – after 45 years of marriage. Ha! She went nuts while the ring was at the jewelers.
I agree with what many of you said; I’d rather wear it and enjoy it as much as I can, while I can.
Thanks for the insight. This has definitely encouraged me to make more of an effort to wear my rings more often.
