Mine comes off for anything involving water- dishes, showers, swimming, etc- except hand washing. That’s mainly because I am more terrified of leaving it sitting on a public sink somewhere than I am of it coming off. I do keep my ring and pinkey finger pinched together really tightly though while I wash my hands- For some reason, even though the fit is absolutley perfect when dry, the second my hands get wet my ring feels so loose! 


I also didn’t wear it when I was waitressing because I was afraid I’d smack it on something and damage a prong. Then I’d have the entire restaurant crawling on the floor looking for the stone, haha!

Every day, all day. This includes when I’m in the shower.

All the time, even during showers.  The only time it comes off is when we go kayaking or in lifting weights at the gym

I wear mine every day but take it off as soon as I get home. I used to wear it to bed but it was getting caught on sheets, and I read that this can cause prongs to losen.

smstewart:  I’ve only been married for a few months but I’ve stopped wearing my engagement ring. I wear it on weekends sometimes, though my wedding band stays on 24/7.

I only wear mine when I leave the house. When I’m home, it’s not on my finger! Can’t stand sleeping with jewelry on!

i take mine off quite a lot. I cant wear it to work, cause im a cook in a high volume kitchen and jewelry isnt allowed. I dont shower in it either, as well when im doing yard work or gardening. sometimes i sleep in it, sometimes i dont. I do wear it when im cooking though, unless a recipe requires for my hands to be all up in the food while cooking then ill take it off. 

i know my mom wears hers 24/7 unless shes cooking. 

im sure once i get married and have a wedding band, ill probably wear the wedding band a lot more then the engagement ring.

I only take it off while doing dishes/any cooking, gardening, washing the car, showering, etc. Otherwise, it’s always on. There have been a few times I thought I misplaced it and I almost had a heart attack. 

My Fiance wouldn’t be happy if I lost my ring as it cost him mega-bucks. 🙁

I wear the e-ring all the time except to clean it. It’s hardy, and I love looking at it on my hand! I would hate to lose it because I took it off at some point.

I’m not so good at this. I don’t wear it when I sleep so I only put it on when I leave the house to go do something with friends, coffee, go to the mall or a date with my fiance… I don’t wear it to the gym or grocery store or if I’m going to be actively doing something with my hands…dog park, washin my car, etc…my diamond is princess cut and kinda big so I worry it will chip. I work from home so my ring gets a lot of shelf time 😉
