Do you wear your engagement ring all the time?

I wear mine all the time except when I come in contact with water (showering, washing my hands/face, swimming) only because it’s a little big on me and I’m afraid of it falling off. If it was tighter on me, I wouldn’t take it off.

I take mine off when I shower, when I clean and when I do my skincare in the morning and evening. I have a ring dish near each bathroom (I shower in the en suite but do my skincare in the main bathroom) and these are the ONLY places I let myself leave my ring when I remove it, in the hope that this will reduce my chances of ever losing it in the house. I used to also take it off to sleep in, but a couple of times I was knocking it off the ring dish on my bedside table when I was asleep and this was causing me a lot of anxiety. So now I keep it on at bedtime.

Oh, just remembered I also take it off when I blow dry my hair. If I leave it on it gets really hot!

I take mine off for sleeping & then put it on once I’m ready for the day (after workout, makeup & hair is done). I take it off before my nightly skicare routine. It also comes off when I’m working with fondant for a cake. If I’m wearing it & I hop in the shower, I leave it on. Same with gardening, dishes and other dirty activies. I take them off for working with ground meat, swimming or doing aynthing in cool water.

peach11 :  Not if it is done properly. But that solder joint where they size it can always be potentially a problem if you do a lot of things with metal. (like lift weights or golf). Most of the time it is not an issue. People have their rings sized all the time. But I have seen where it was not done correctly and it can crack at that joint. And of course the thinner your ring is, the more it can be a potential issue. But I wouldnt worry about it at the moment!

I hate that I can’t wear my engagement ring to work as I’m in health care and don’t want to ruin it with all the patient care and lifting . Plus I’m scared of being robbed, I know that sounds silly but I walk to work from train station while it’s still dark in the morning. I wear only my wedding band. I’ve never had a piece of jewelry so expensive 😆

I always take my ER off for showers, cleaning, working out, or lounging but usually leave my wedding ring on all the time.

I always wear my wedding band, rarely wear my engagement ring.  I wear it when we go out or I dress up, but not typically to work or just day-to-day outings.

I take mine off to shower and sleep. I wear gloves usually when I clean with chemicals. I also take it off if I’m at the beach or in a lake or ocean.

peach11 :  can you share the style name/ designer? I’m pretty sure this is exactly what one of my friends is looking for but has been having trouble finding one without extra embellishments.

I only take mine off when I rock climb but otherwise wear it all the time. I have insurance in case something happened but lots of lake/ocean activities, gardening and general life things it’s been totally fine

peach11 :  pretty ring and congrats on your engagement! I personally don’t wear my ring to do chores, like ever lol because i want to preserve the shine. now that im thinking about it, i really don’t wear my e-ring all that much lol i work in healthcare and wear gloves often, and my ring is 1.6 ct, so i really dont want to mess with it at work. so i guess i really only wear it when im off work and going out.

I work from home so its pointless to me to wear my rings. I wear a silicone ring. But if I am going out on date or somewhere besides a grocery store or outdoor event… I will wear my set.

I don’t wear my ring all the time. I do wear them most of the time though. I don’t wear them when I shower, cook, and clean with cleaning chemicals. That’s pretty much it

I wouldn’t wear it all the time. I take mine off when I clean, cook, sleep, workout, and shower. It’s just not worth the risk. I keep little ring dishes around my apartment (one in my room, and one right by my kitchen sink), so when I take it off it has a specific spot. And I ONLY put it in the ring dish (this will help you from misplacing it!). If I travel, I take the ring box that it came in with me, and put it in that. Hope this helps!

I wear a 3.43ct emerald cut, and only take it off when I shower or if I’m doing something potentially damaging, like gardening, or messy cooking/baking.  But otherwise I sleep in it, etc. and pretty much wear it all the time.  I take it off for showers because it’s my routine to soak it in cleaner (just dish soap and water, with a splash of vinegar) every morning while I shower, plus it gets quite loose from the shampoo and I don’t want it to fly off, AND I don’t want soap residue to accumulate on it.  I’m pretty neurotic about keeping it clean lol.
