    I take mine off when I am showering, cleaning or getting my hands dirty. I have two old tealight holders from Ikea that I found at a thrift shop for 50 cents a piece and I keep one in the kitchen and one in the bathroom. I find when I need to take my rings off, those are generally the areas I’m at!

    Where I work a lot of the kindergarten teachers and early childhood educators wear a CZ ring to work or none at all because it can get just filthy with playdough, paint and dirt.

    Before we got married, I would only take my e-ring off to put lotion on, occasionally while doing dishes, wash my hair (once or twice a week), or do anything that could really damage it.

    Now that I have my wedding band, too (it has 6 diamonds in it), I take them off for the above reasons, but also when I shower AT ALL (not just washing my hair), and I always take them off when I do the dishes..

    Mine’s a higher setting, and it’s just a tad too big, so it goes on right before I leave the house, and comes off shortly after I come home. If I’m having a lazy day and not doing any cleaning, I’ll put it on while around the house just b/c I like looking at it all the time, but otherwise I leave it off where it’s safe in the box.

    I have mine on about the same amount of time.  I put them on after I get ready to leave the house and I take them off after coming home or getting ready for bed.  I’m not really one who is comfortable wearing a lot of jewelry and when I am home chilling out I don’t see any reason to keep them on.

    I only wear it when I’m going out.  Don’t wear it for work, I’m a nurse and I’m always scared I’ll lose it working with my hands or taking gloves on and off.  Plus I work evening shift (3-11pm) in a pretty shady neighborhood, so less bling the better :/

    I take mine off to shower and I only wear my wedding band when horseback riding (e-ring and other band stay home). 

    I also take them off when working with raw meat or chopping onions/kneading dough. Otherwise, they are on ALL the time.

    I never take my ring off, i deliberately got it made half a size smaller than recommended so that I can just have it on and forget about it.  I love having it on all the time, I wear it showering, sleeping, cooking and washing dinner Smile  I would feel naked without it now, even though it has only been on for a few weeks…

    When engaged, my ering never came off my finger for fear of losing it, but since getting married & having it replated I usually take my set off to shower and clean the house.

    Well, I´m legally married, but we´re not wearing our wedding bands yet, because we´re not married by church yet (and that´s when we catholics exchange rings) but I don´t think I´ll have to take my wedding band off at all when I finally get to wear it. At least not at most times.. I mean, we chose yellow plain bands for that very reason! lol.. no diamonds to fall, no need to “re-dip” if it scratchs, etc..

    However my e-ring I do take off a lot of times.. Right now I´m not wearing it. I´m at work, and I find it unnecesary to use it here; I have to put my hands in and out drawers and gavinets way too many times, and I usually hit my ring against them. So I´ve decided I better don´t wear it to work..

    I wear my rings all day at work and out running errands which is about 75% of my life lol, but I do not wear them to bed or while doing chores or to the gym.

    I take my engagement ring off when I’m in the shower and sometimes in bed, as I can catch it on things and don’t want to damage it (my husband gets scratched regularly Smile) but my wedding ring stays on all the time. If my hands get hot or I’m washing up, both do come off.

    I take mine off as soon as I get home, and I put them on as soon as I leave the house. They are ALWAYS in the same exact location, so no fear of losing.

    I take mine off for heavy cleaning, showering and sleeping. I’m like ridiculously allergic to a lot of metals so I’m always afraid it will suddenly start bothering me (knock on wood). It’s platinum so it shouldn’t, but I still worry!

    I take mine off once I get home and sometimes forget to put it back on for errands.

    I am looking forward to having a wedding band, I will def. wear that more than the ering. I am so afraid of hurting it.
