    I take my rings off pretty often when I am at home. It is just more comfortable for me.  I almost always take them off in the same spot and feel pretty naked when I go out without them one, so it’s pretty easy to remember to put them back on.  I just grab them and go in  the morning.

    At first I used any excuse to take it off, it was foreign and uncomfortable. It was too big. Adjusting the size helped and now I don’t take it off at night.

    I can’t think of why I would need to, so I don’t.

    I only take my ring off at work. At home, I wear it all the time.

    I lost my ring the first (and last) time I slept with it on. Actually it just fell behind the bed but still I don’t risk it anymore.

    I read somewhere that you can damage the prongs whilst you sleep but mines pretty sturdy and I leave it on pretty much 24/7 Now. I used to take it off but I find if I don’t sleep with it for whatever reason, I’ll have dreams that I’ve lost my ring! Plus, my fingers must swell overnight and I was struggling to jam it on to my finger every morning – so much so that my knuckle was really chapped and dry! All in all, not worth it! I take it to the jewellers and get them to check the prongs every once in a while so I don’t worry about it!

    I only have my promise ring from when we were dating (hopefully a belated proposal coming soon because we are backwards like that), but I’ve pretty much never taken it off in about four years now and it’s still in the same shape it was when I got it! Then again, it’s kind of bezel set I suppose so there’s no prongs to catch on anything and no pave, etc. I’d think with engagement rings that sleeping in such could wear down the gold and prongs, eventually leading to possibly losing a stone? Or it could snag your bed linens? I could be wrong though.

    Yes, my fingers swell a lot when I sleep, and sleeping with my ring on leads to a painful morning! I have a ring dish on my nightstand so I’m not concerned about losing it.

    aspade:  I keep both of my rings on unless I’m cooking something messy or they’re being cleaned. I do not baby them. In my opinion they’re there to be worn. Plus, there’s no way I’d remember to put them back on and I’d be terrified of losing them.

    I had a friend who took hers off in case she scratched her fiance…which was ridiculous because the ring was not the sort that could do any damage. I knock mine against the wooden headboard every now and then but no harm done.

    For me, it’s very uncomfortable to sleep in my ring. My diamond also sits up high and gets caught on the sheets and scratches me. I always remember to put it on. It sits in my ring dish near my perfume.

    I sleep with a hand under my pillow, and sometimes my stone ends up directly below the weight of my head. I cannot say that is enough to warp a ring, but after wearing my ring non-stop for about two years it was slightly out-of-round. Not a lot, but visible. So I had it fixed and now I remove my ring before I wash my face at night and put it back on after my shower in the morning. That has become habit, so I never forget it anymore. Again, I cannot confirm it was sleeping on it that warped it, but I’d just as soon not have it happen again. But I would not be at all worried about linens against the ring or it getting caught on anything (it doesn’t even catch on my hair).

    My fingers swell while I sleep, so I take mine off. I keep them on a ring dish on my bedside table, never have a problem remembering to put them back on because I love them so much 🙂
