Yep, and I have never had any issue. 

The only reason it’s ever a problem is that my fingers some times swell at night, so if I need to take it off to shower (which I always do) right after I get up, it can be a wee bit hard to take off.

But I do not trust myself to take it off every night and not lose it/forget about it/etc, so I never thought twice about sleeping with it on.

I personally take off all my jewellery to sleep….I have since I was old enough to wear jewellery. It’s just a preference thing. But I’m sure your ring would be perfectly fine if you slept in it 🙂

I don’t take it off.  I am terrible at loosing things and if I took it off to shower or sleep I would definitly loose it, or a cat would nock it off the table or something like that. 

The only time I’ve taken it off so far, is if I am cooking something that I need to mix with my hands, or getting my hands in something messy/sticky, but so far I’ve only taken it off a couple of times. 
I think when we get married I’ll probably wear my wedding wring all the time and my engagment ring only sometimes, but it’s beautiful and I love it, so I want to wear it!

As for snagging, nope, I don’t have any trouble with that, and it is quite high (built up a bit, in an art deco kind of design).  Occationally I might get some fluff or something caught in it if I am wearing wool or something like that, but it’s not normally when I’m sleeping.

makeupluvr :  I always sleep in mine. It’s never snagged or anything so I don’t see a reason to take it off. I don’t wear much jewelry other than my rings, but when I do, I take it off before bed.

I never take mine off, never had a problem with it and it kinda sits up high!

I only take mine off when cooking and showering.

I take off my ring before bed. My setting is kinda high so I’m scared to scratch Fiance in the night!

I usually take it off before bed, otherwise my fingers are swollen and I can’t get it off before I shower in the morning, and it gets all tangled in my hair when I’m shampooing.

I have forgotten a few nights, mostly when I’ve been drinking, and then I have woken up in the middle of the night with my finger screaming at me to be set free. I end up having to soap it up in the bathroom at 4am and then go back to sleep after its tucked safely in the ring box.
