I was talking to my aunt and grandmother a few days ago & they told me they NEVER take their e-rings or wedding bands off. They both pulled their rings off & their fingers actually had indentations! My aunt has taken her rings off maybe 10 times in 25 years & my grandma maybe a couple more in 50 years.
I only wear my ring socially…. I don’t wear it to work or around the house (unless people are over). I fell asleep with my e-ring on once & I woke up with a huge bloody scratch on my face! lol I vowed to never let that happen again.
So… whats your stance on this- do you plan on always keeping your ring on? Do you wear your ring(s) to bed?

I take my e-ring off to sleep, and I’ll probably take off the wedding band, too. I’m a violent sleeper. 😉 I’m not worried about myself, though; I’m worried I’ll knock a diamond loose!

I wear mine to bed, doesn’t bother me at all. I sometimes take it off to work and just sit it beside me, makes me nervous to do that, but that’s the only time I do take it off.

I never take mine off unless I’m cleaning…then I will if I’m using harsh chemicals or cleaning something icky, lol.

I only wear mine when i go out, or if we are having people over. Like today i sat around the house, cleaned, and played with the dogs outside, so no ring.

I never take it off. I used to finger comb my hair out in the shower, and I would take it off when I did that (because otherwise it got snagged in my hair!), and if I’m dying or going to dip my hands in bleach for some reason, I try to remember to take it off! But I’m SO bad at leaving things places that I would absolutely lose it if I took it off to sleep or shower, etc.

I wear mine all the time. Yesterday I had to take it off at the nail salon and I was panicked the entire time.

I cannot sleep with mine on (and to be honest, I would take it off along with taking off my watch and pulling back my hair as soon as I get home…if I could guarantee I wouldn’t lose it!).

I only take my ring off when I’m working in acid, paint, tar, or also baking stuff. Well, like kneading. 🙂 Otherwise, it’s on all the time.

I never take mine off – I wear to sleep, while cleaning, the gym everything!

I only wear my ring when I leave the house. I never wear it when I’m at home except maybe if we have company over. I want to be completely comfortable when I’m home, so to me that means not wearing any jewelry, including my engagement ring. I figure by doing so it also helps in keeping it clean and less risk of any damage.

I sleep with mine on. I only take it off if I am cleaning or working with raw meat. I’ve scratched myself when awake plenty, so it’s surprising that has never happened when I’ve been asleep lol.

heh just today I woke up with a big indent on my cheek because apparently I was sleeping on my hand lol No scratch though. I almost ALWAYS wear mine except for when making meatballs or meatloaf or something.

I lost my first (thankfully insured) e-ring. My new one very rarely comes off, including when I sleep. It’s never bothered me, and even though I’m a rather … athletic sleeper, I’ve managed to not gouge out any of my flesh.
