    MiaSuperstar :  exactly me! I’ve always been pretty big on rings, so I had 3 rings I always wore prior to engagement. When I got engaged, I happened to take one of them off only momentarily and I freaken lost it within hours. I’m still mourning. It’s a big risk for me to take mine off just because.

    Shortly after getting engaged I specifically looked for a silicone ring to wear when I’m doing things that I wouldn’t want to wear my engagement ring doing. I didn’t want my finger to be naked at any time! I bought it from a company called Enso. There are many other companies too, I looked at a lot of Qalo rings as well. These companies make these rings specifically for people who want to wear rings while working out, camping, swimming, military, law enforcement, mecanics etc etc but not damage their “real” ring.

    I got into the habit of taking my rings off as soon as I get home and putting them on before I leave the house. My rings don’t need to get into meatloaf or banged against dishes. And a thin pave band can easily get misshapen and lose a stone if you ever sleep with a hand under your pillow. 

    I had a very small utilitarian set when I was first married that I never took off, but when Dh upgraded my set that changed. A larger stone on a comparatively smaller band simply isn’t as secure. I actually don’t have a problem swimming with it, but everything else about being at home is a risk – sleeping, dishes, cooking, gardening, etc.

    betyl :  Exactly. A well fitting ring won’t just fall off your finger. 

    But then again I pick ring styles that are meant to be worn 24/7. That was a big influence on my bridal set. It’s meant to be worn at all times (at least that’s how I see it) 

    I own a 6 ct Princess Diana style saphire and diamond ring that I wear as a rhr on special occasions only. I couldn’t imagine wearing that thing 24/7. It’s way to big and uncomfortable to be worn on a daily base. But again. If I take that ring out of the safe it goes on my finger and stays there till it goes back into the safe. And that ring is only a fraction of what my bridal set is worth.

    sars :  Thank you! It’s a white gold stacking band from an Etsy shop called Master Jewelry Shop! They have great prices and quality.

    sweetocean24 :  thanks so much, going to check it out! I’m looking for an all-metal wedding band with a design element to make it unique/a bit extra. Sorry for the threadjack OP !

    I would wear my rings to the beach but I wouldn’t go in the ocean with them. Your hands shrink in the water and rings can more easily slip off without your noticing. It’s not worth the risk to me.

    I never take off my wedding ring, but it’s a plain band and not terribly valuable. Part of the reason I wanted a plain wedding band was precisely so that I have a no fuss ring I can wear when traveling, baking, gardening, or whatnot and not have to worry about my ering.

    sweetocean24 :  Lovely ring! Why don’t you have it insured, though?! This makes me nervous for you.

    Thanks, I looked into insuring it but the cost to have it insured is pretty high, it’s like a 25k wedding set and considering I usually only wear it to safe places and then put it into my safe at home, my husband said if you multiply the premium by 10 years even it will add up. I never wear it outside our state to travel or anything… browneyedgirl24 :

    2020bride20 :  I always wear my rings, except when dealing with raw meat or baking as well as occasionally painting. But when I don’t wear them I put them on a gold chain around my neck. Though my rings are extremely simple compared to most on the Bee ;P

    I have on rare occasion worn my silver band from the beginning of our engagement, when we were still at university. That is really study and great as a stand in.

    My old silver ering (husband had the same band back then), which I wore as a thumb ring when I got my real engagement ring and up until the wedding (my original ering didn’t have my husband’s name engraved which is a big point of the rings in Sweden so I didn’t want to leave it at home until I hade my wedding band with engraving, my husband wore his silver band until the wedding when he switched to a gold and titanium band)

    I live on an island and would never wear my rings to the beach. I know a diver who works on the snorkel boats who basically collects diamond rings people have lost if thatʻs any clue as to how easily theyʻre lost in water.

    I am getting married in Grand Cayman and I have been debating this question for a while now. I am thinking I am going to wear my set in the water. It will be soldered and sized so it will be extra tight on my finger. The jeweler told me that the wider the band is the more secure it is, and once my rings are soldered the band will, of course, be wider. Of course, when soldered, if you lose one then you lose them both.. That part does make me nervous!
