mrslah:  Congratulations and your ring is beautiful! I take my rings off during all the times you mentioned. I don’t like to sleep in rings, and I take them off when I wash my hands because it seems like hand soap leaves a filmy residue. 

Here’s my light blue sapphire 🙂

Congrats! Your ring is so beautiful! I love sapphire rings. I take mine off during all those instances, I also wear it on a necklace at work because I work in healthcare and don’t want icky stuff to get on it. I think as long as you don’t do anything crazy, the sapphire should be fine. Here is my beauty.

mrslah:  Thank you! I think it’s normal to worry about your ring being fragile, especially when you first get it.

mrslah:  hi! Mine is not a sapphire. It’s a spinel, which is “softer”. Have had it for over a year now and it still looks like new. I take it off for washing dishes, cleaning and when putting some lotion on. Most of these I take it off just because rings get dirty and lotion dries and creates a coat of dirt little by little. 

And then just for protecting it, when I am training or building some stuff (I like building DIY furniture) I also take it off. But honestly it has nothing to do with the stone. I do the same with my diamond rings.

mrslah:  Congratulations!!!! That ring is an absolute stunner. So beautiful. 

 

I hope I count! I have a 3 stone but the centre is a diamond and the side stones are sapphires. I only take mine off to shower, do my hair or touch something icky like raw meats. I also find that lotions or hand washing makes everything a bit filmy but I’m so clumsy I’d rather keep it on than risk losing it!

I have a sapphire RHR. I take it off to shower and anything that has to do with lotion, hair products, makeup, sunscreen, etc. Also, if I’m grooming or riding my horses, gardening, weight lifting, building playdoh sculptures with my kiddo…I also remove my diamond engagement ring for those activities too. I bent/warped a couple nice rings by weightlifting/workingout with them on, so I am extra careful now. I don’t like to get my rings too gooped up either because I’m too lazy to clean my rings everyday 🙂

I haven’t gotten my ring yet – but my soon to be Fiance already has the set.  It’s a petite setting with alternating sapphire and diamonds.  The center stone is a diamond though.

I’ll put pics up as soon as he officially proposes.

Loving your ring – so elegant!  I was really precious about mine when I first got engaged, and I used to take it off all the time to look after it like a good girl but I’m rubbish now.  I do still take it off for showers and housework.   I’m pretty clumsy and I bash it around accidentally from time to time and it’s still perfect after nearly 2 years.  By that I mean that the platinum is all scratched up (which I actually love and could be fixed with a polish if I wanted) but my sapphire is still perfect.  You’d want to avoid harsh chemicals and really serious bashes of course, but sapphires are pretty hardy.

mrslah:   I take mine off when cooking, showering, putting product in my hair, and lotioning up. I’ve smacked my hand against everything there is and it’s totally fine. I avoid trying to get gunk under the basket because it effects the shine. I kept it on for the whole honeymoon, and had to take it in for a good cleaning
