peach11 :  I have a 1.5ct solitaire in white gold, I take it off when I shower and sometimes when I’m cleaning. Otherwise I pretty much wear it all the time, even at the gym, in the pool/ocean/lake/river, etc.

That said, there’s nothing “wrong” with taking it off, I’m not sure why you thought you were never supposed to take it off, but I know several women who choose not to wear theirs regularly. Just depends on what youre comfortable with.

Don’t shower/ clean with it! You can lose it in the shower when your hands are cold and wet, and harsh cleaning chemicals can damage the stone.

I take mine off to shower, sleep, clean, and work out. When I take it off, I always put it in the same place (jewelry box).

I really only wear my rings when I leave the house. I take them off and put them in my ring dish when I get home, and when I’m leaving anywhere I grab them on the way out. I’m always worried I’ll scratch my dog with it or bump it when I’m cooking so I just take them off when I’m relaxing at home.

I would say I don’t wear mine more often than I do wear it, and we are still just as married despite me not wearing my ring. 

I take it off for bathing, sleeping, cleaning, working out, camping, most adventures, anything where it might get stabby, and days when I’m working in the field.

When I was engaged, I took it off whenever I showered, went to the gym, gardened, did dishes, slept, etc. But now that I’m wearing my whole set, the only time I take the e-ring off is to work out (mostly because I know the more I take it off, the higher the chance is I’ll lose or misplace it). Do whatever you’re comfortable with.

I wear mine all the time except using harsh chemicals or weight lifting. I have recently worn a silicone band because it’s hot as hell and my fingers are swollen from that and some weight gain. But generally yes I wear it all the time

I hate the idea of wearing an e-ring all the time. I take my ring off when I get home. I would never wear it in the shower/bath, gardening, cooking, sleeping or working out as personal preference. But I totally baby my e-ring. Some people wear theirs while touching raw meat or lifting weights and all of that gives me anxiety lol.

I take mine off a lot – to sleep, work out, ride my horse, clean – pretty much I take it off when I get home from work. I don’t wear it hiking, on any kind of active vacation, etc. I do always wear a band though. I find just wearing the band to be more comfortable.

On the other hand, I don’t think my mom’s taken her set off for the 34 years she’s been married (it’s, like, stuck on her hand), so to each their own!

I do not but my sister in law does but I have a 1 year old so there are alot of things I put my hands on, its just easier to not worry about my rings. When I get home I change into lounge clothes, put my hair up, and jewely comes off

I wear mine most of the time. I take it off when I’m sleeping or showering…and the dishes cause I wear rubber gloves. If I’m having a day at home on the weekend and not planning on leaving, I don’t wear any jewelry including my engagement ring. Other than that this baby is on my hand!

I put my rings on when I leave the house. When I get home, they go into a ring bowl. I never wear them swimming, working out, cleaning, etc.

When I was engaged, I wore my band 100% of the time, only taking it off when I slept. Now that we’re married, I don’t wear it as often, I just wear my wedding band around the house and usually only put on the engagement ring when we leave.

I take it off to wash my hair (hair gets caught around it and drive me insane) or doing something particularly dirty. Otherwise, it’s always on.

When I was engaged, I basically only wore my engagement ring from 7:45 am (when I got dressed for work) until 5 pm (when I changed into sweats and took all my jewelry off). I didn’t wear it to work on days where I worked out after work, and didn’t wear it when I traveled. On weekends, I only wore it when we went on date nights. 

Now that we’re married, it’s the same, except that I wear the engagement ring slightly less even than I did before. I have a simple band that stays on 24/7, and I love the way it looks alone. 

I don’t find rings, minus plain flat metal bands, to be especially comfortable. I never found myself in a place where I didn’t notice it, it gets in the way when I try to cook/clean/put my hands in my pocket/etc.
