I’m going to a day spa and resort tomorrow. I’m debating on wether I should leave my ring at home. I rarely take it off but I will be in and out of pools all day. Would you feel okay wearing your rings to a spa.

@girltuesday: First off, I AM SO JEALOUS!
How well does your ring stay on? It really depends. My rings I leave on in the shower and they’re still nice and secure. If you have a looser fitting ring, I would say leave it at home. You need to be able to relax, and you won’t be able to do that if you have to worry about your ring falling off!

i would wear mine because they aren’t loose when i take a shower or swim. if your rings are loose, then leave them at home.

I am long overdue for a spa day 🙂 I’m excited. Those are both good points. My ring stays on very well since I have big knuckles. It’s true, I may be more relaxed if I don’t have to worry about my ring.

@girltuesday: If it’s not attached to me I lose it. Seriously, I can’t tell you hpw many times I have left my purse places, I had to wear a lanyard everyday with my work key on it becuase I can’t be trustde not to set something somewhere “safe” and completely lose it. So my vote is wear it 🙂

But if your ring stays on, you may not have to worry about it! Personally I’d feel perfectly comfortable leaving my rings on. It’s just about how confident you are from experience whether or not it will stay on. 🙂

What kind of metal are your rings? Chlorine damages gold. So unless your ring is platinum, it’s better off at home!

@girltuesday: I would probably leave them at home. Personally I don’t wear any jewelry to swim because the chlorine isn’t good for it and I’ve lost jewelry in the pool before.
My main concern would be whether your ring is made of any type of gold. You’re not supposed to wear gold jewelry in the pool. From a jeweler’s website (click on link to read more):
“Dawson Jewelers offers a warning against wearing gold jewelry while swimming in chlorinated pools or using laundry bleaches. A chemical reaction takes place between the chlorine and the alloy metals in gold jewelry and certain jewelry items actually disintegrate over time.
…Research has shown that when a 14k white gold ring is placed in common household chlorine bleach for 36 hours, the end result was complete disintegration.“

Chlorine is not kind to metals. I’d leave it at home.

@girltuesday: are you getting a massage? If so, they will ask you to remove rings. I would leave it at home!! BTW, sooo jealous of your spa day!!

It would depend on the services received. Any manicure or massage that might include hands/arms, and I would leave my rings at home. Anything that will expose your ring to mud/clay or oil, and I would leave it at home. Sometimes even facials will include a hand procedure of some sort for relaxation, so it might be better to err on the side of caution and remove them before you go.

Both my rings are platinum.
that is good to know. My rings are platinum, but I’m sure it’s not good for any metal.
yeah. I think I’ll leave them behind. I’m going to get into the clay bath. Maybe even get a body exfoliation.
I always miss having my ring, but I think I will leave it at home. Thank you for all your feedback, I will miss it even more should I loose it

@girltuesday: I would either wear just my plain w-band or wear a stand-in.

@girltuesday: It depends on what your rings are made of… The chlorine in pools can pit gold. But then again, you probably won’t be in there long enough to do any damage.

I have a plain wedding band that is separate for my now soldered rings, because I fly for a living. If I ever think something might damage or get them too dirty I’ll wear the plain band
