    I never take mine off unless Darling Husband is cleaning it.

    I used to take my engagement ring off in the shower, cleaning, etc.  I noticed during an entire week of being married that I haven’t bothered to remove both rings.  Everything feels a lot more secure now so I’m not fearing my rings falling off.  I always kept my engagement ring on throughout the night.

    I take it off at night because it is a cathedral setting and can poke or scratch me or him when we’re cuddling and I take it off in the shower because my finger is a size 5 and I’m so worried that it will slide off with shampoo/conditioner or soap and go down the drain foreverrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

    I take mine off at night because I realized the first couple of nights of being engaged that my finger swells overnight.  I was waking up the next morning and could barely remove it from my finger.  It was no fun!  I take it off in the shower because I am scared it will fall off.  hehe ๐Ÿ™‚

    I always take mine off if I’m going to be doing something messy or where I could get my rings caught (dangerous to fingers!)

    I also don’t sleep with them because my hands tend to swell a little bit over night and it’s uncomfortable to have jewelry on.

    I take my ring off in the shower. I cannot risk losing it down the drain. That is a serious nightmare of mine. I know this happens to a lot of women (if not all) that when my finger/ring gets wet it loosens it’s grip on my finger, now add soap and shampoo to that mixture and it could fall off! One time I did wear it in the shower and it began to slip off, luckily I caught it just before it did. 

    Other then that I wear my ring all the time. ^_^

    I take mine off when cleaning, showering, sleeping and putting on lotion.  I have a pave band so I don’t like getting gunk in it because it’s a pain to clean.  I take mine off at night because I don’t like sleeping with any jewelry on.  Plus the few times i did sleep with it I’m pretty sure I scratched Darling Husband in my sleep.

    My cousin lost her engagement ring in the shower, so I’m too paranoid to wear mine where it might slip and fall!

    I usually take mine off to sleep, just for good measure, but sometimes I can’t bear to. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I always wear mine ๐Ÿ™‚ I see it as, I can always get it cleaned and re-dipped as I need to ๐Ÿ™‚ The only time I take it off is when I’m putting on lotion or getting a manicure or something.

    I only take it off when I shower, wash the dishes and get my hands dirty.  Otherwise, it stays on!

    I take it off when I sleep, shower, wash my hands, or think I’ll get them dirty. But I just got my ring so I’m being really careful, I have a morganite and it’s not the most durable stone so I want to protect it.

    I take it off when I sleep, shower, get mani and sometimes when I was my hands – I feel like i can’t properly wash my hands with my ring on sometime (perhaps a little OCD)

    I used to leave it on for almost everything except gardening, painting, or messy food projects (bread dough for example)…but now that it’s getting cold it’s always loose, so I take it off much more often. Definitely in the shower and usually before bed.

    I only take mine off to work out, clean, or anything else that might make it really gross, like give the dog a bath ๐Ÿ™‚
