When I first got my ring I didn’t want to take it off LOL. Mind you it was a cathedral solitaire that was a bit high set.

After 2 nights of that, I gave up and never did it again. Now I take off my rings as soon as I get home and when I’m just at home I don’t wear my rings at all. I don’t wear them while doing chores, taking a shower etc.

I take all my rings off for showering, sleeping and messy tasks. I will do the same with the wedding band.

I often have to take my rings off at work, so I usually wear my wedding band on my necklace and leave my e-ring at home.  I don’t want them hitting against each other on my necklace.  I take them off at night, showering, washing dishes, handling raw meat, etc.  I have a ring holder that sits on my nightstand so they stay there if I’m not wearing them.

shadesofbay :  I take all my jewellery off as soon as I get home, including my wedding band. My wedding band is a half eternity with tiny bead set diamonds and even though it’s low profile I just don’t want to knock it around, so I would definitely feel that way about your style of wedding band – the diamonds look substantial (I’d guess the ring is at least 3mm wide) and it would be such a shame to lose one.

I never wear my rings at home. I’m lucky if I remember to put them on before I leave the house!

I take all my jewelry off at night.  My fingers swell too much at night to wear rings unless I want to be in pain in the morning.  I’ve broken necklaces by sleeping in them and then lost them in my hair lmao.  So while I do think my rings are sturdy enough to sleep in them, my body just says no.

shadesofbay :  I also have a pretty high profile cathedral setting 


I take it off basically as soon as I get home, and whenever I’m doing anything that could hurt it. For example, I’ve noticed that when I grocery shop, I tend it knock it on the bags when I very them to my car. I bought a Lion Latch so that I can take it off safely while I do errands like that.

I plan to get a plain yellow gold band for my wedding band. Even so, I plan to take it off just as much as my e ring, since yellow gold can warp or at least get scratches easily. I don’t plan on wearing it in the shower, because I used to do that with my class ring, and I eventually got a rash from my finger being wet under the ring, even when I thought I dried it.

shadesofbay :  I am getting a plain band which I will keep on all the time, but will take my engagement ring off for bed and shower. I don’t like the feeling of sleeping with my e-ring on and I worry I will damage it.

Darling Husband and I both take our rings off as soon as we get home. We only wear them if we’re going out.

I treat my rings as a unit. When the e-ring comes off, so does the wedding band. This is what I’d suggest for you too! 🙂 

It’s just the easiest way to make sure they stay together and I don’t misplace one, outside of soldering.

My rings are on or off together almost always. They’re not soldered, but I typically treat them as a unit. Every once in awhile depending on where we are going, I’ll wear just my band. But 99% of the time they’re either on or off together.

I don’t sleep, shower, or cook with my rings on. Any time I feel like they’re being a nuisance (like if I’m moving furniture around, etc.) they come off. I have a ring stand by my bed and by the sink which is where they go when I take them off. I have a ring box that goes with me when I travel so I don’t misplace them.

shadesofbay :  I take mine off when I sleep, clean, shower, apply lotion, and I don’t wear them in pools or the ocean. I’ve had my ring for over 5 years and people still ask me if it’s new because of how clean and sparkly it is! 👍🏻

FutureMrsBex :  yup all my jewelry comes off too…and my bra 🤣. My rings are comfortable, but it all feels way too restrictive at home. I definitely can’t wear jewelry to bed!

I love my rings and my husband, but I don’t really feel the need to have the reminder on my finger at all times.

My one set is soldered so they both come off, and my other ring is just a Tiffany solitaire style so I take it off for sleeping and showering

I love both of my rings to death but I just cannot sleep with rings on! I only sleep with both of my rings when I travel so there’s no way I’ll lose them. But at home, I take both rings off and put them in my jewelry box when I shower (I shower at night). And then put them on in the morning when I’m done washing my face.

My wedding band is super super thin though so while it’s more durable than my e-ring, it could still easily get caught on something and twist or get messed up. I need to get one of those silicone bands though.
