    I’m actually like your Fiance.  I don’t want to wear my ring because I commute to work and such.  But the Fiance told me that this is the very reason why the ring is insured so that if something does happen, we can easily replace it.  Would you feel better if the ring was insured?

    I wear mine everywhere, unless I’m gardening or something like that. In fact, I wore mine to Mexico last week, at the resort, off the resort, and in the ocean. He bought it for me to wear, so I wear them.

    I understand the disappointment if something “breaks” but IMO you can’t go through life “what if-ing” everything. Insure it, then wear it. If it’s about safety, turn the stone to the inside of your palm so you can’t see it.

    @kayberry:  Ah, ok!  Well…I think he just needs to see other women wear their erings/wedding bands and maybe he might warm up to the idea of you wearing yours everywhere?  Also, putting it on/taking it off will give you a chance of losing it, too.  i.e. forgetting your ring is in your pocket.

    Oops, I voted wrong.

    I wear the ring always, except when sleeping or cooking, etc.

    I wear it always unless I’m doing dishes or cooking meat or sleeping. My Fiance is the opposite! If he comes home and I’m not wearing it, he’s all pouty faced and asking me where my ring is!

    I think I’d be more afraid of losing it if it was pinned or on a chain that could break. I can’t tell you how many times I had a chain break and didn’t realize it. 🙁

    It is your ring.  I personally would never take mine off, it is part of who I am.  It is a very expensive ring, but it is my ring!  I would never take it off because to me, the worst thing that could happen is I could lose it.

    Sweetie! I have a story for you. My really great friend is a nurse! She put her ring in her pocket (ER nurse btw) and it’s now gone. Worst part…this is the SECOND time it’s happened to her in a few years. Just something to think about when you’re in a high stress time @ work or have loose pockets. Yes, she has insurance so she can replace it. So I’m thinking: Don’t wear it to work if you have to take it off at all. Leave it at home. Or make sure you never take it off.

    I don’t see the point in getting a beautiful and not wearing it.

    If you keep taking the ring off, you could loose it.

    I lost my original e-ring because I actually forgot to put it back on once and could not remember where I put it until the next day. I picked a low profile, secure setting for the new e-ring and I don’t take it off. What is the point of having it if you can’t wear it. It’s like covering nice furniture in plastic. You can’t take anything material with you when you die, so might as well enjoy it during your lifetime.

    Insurance is great but since we put a claim in it has been a nightmare. I would rather not lose it again.

    My husband would actually be pretty upset if I left the house without my ring on.
