When I first started wearing my ring it did feel alittle weird- but then I also avoided wearing it with my absolute worst clothes (barn clothes- didn’t want to drop it in a stall).

However, I did get used to it after a while.

I don’t even clean in my ring. I don’t think I would be able to help someone move in it. It’s a high setting so I’d be afraid of constantly banging it on something.

My ‘lounging’ and ‘running errands’ clothes have been kicked up a notch because of my ering 🙂 I think it’s about time though, I’m almost 30 so I think it’s getting less acceptable for me to wear sweats or grungy clothing in public, or even at home wiht my husband.

Personally, I would have left my ring at home while helping someone move… I would be too afraid of damaging it!

I guess it would be a little weird to wear something so nice with clothes that are so grungy haha.

I’d have left my ring at home simply because cleaning paint off a ring sucks (been there, done that!).

@Orange Snakeskin: You’re not actually painting in your ring, though…? Right…? If you get paint on it, you’ll likely have to use harsh chemicals to get it off, which could really damage the metal and possibly the stones.

I got used to wearing my ring lazing around. After a while, it just becomes a part of you, and you barely realize you’re wearing it!

I do sometimes look down at my hand when I’m wearing jeans and an old hoodie and smile at the contrast between what I’m wearing and my ring.  I do love that it dresses up anything I wear!

Before I got engaged, I remember seeing other girls, my age in sweats and t-shirts with a hot-ass ring, and thinking that they looked awesome! I couldn’t wait until my grubby clothes looked better because of my ring. Although, now that I wear one, it doesn’t make me feel any better when I wear sweats. *sigh*

My e-ring is now a part of me, I don’t really take it off for anything.  I figure it was made to be strong enough to put up with the strsses I put on it.

haha, naw, my e-ring and all my everyday jewlery stay on me all the time from lounging at home, to yard work, to moving, putting together furniture, working on the house, and everything in between.  Doesn’t feel out of place at all to me.

I like wearing clothing/ accessories that contrast.  (I will wear really expensive jeans and a really cheap tshirt-) But that’s just my style.  My Engagement Ring is just a part of me, so I don’t really consider it.  It never comes off.  Ever.

I thought it might seem strange but I’ve never had a problem wearing the ring with my grungy clothes. I’m in school right now and working part time so I’m either in “comfy pants” and hoodies or suits, and i love the ring with anything i have on.

I take my ring off whenever I’m doing something where I’m nervous I’ll bang it on something (moving, housework, etc.), but I always put it in its original box, so I don’t worry about losing it.
