Never have taken my rings off in the 25 years we’ve been married, except once when I had to for surgery (the hospital insisted), and once when I had to for an MRI. Even giving birth in hospital I kept my rings on.ย

I usually never take mine off even if im sleeping/showering/cooking, however there is always about a week in the summertime where it gets ridiculously hot and my hands swell too much to wear my ring at night. I don’t trust myself not to lose it if its not on my finger!

I only keep it on when I’m away from home.  Otherwise I put it in its box when I go to bed.  I am one who prefers to sleep naked as a jay bird so sleeping in a ring isn’t the most comfortable for me.

I sleep with my ring on, no problem.

I take mine off every night.   I also don’t wear it while cooking and washing dishes.

I never take mine off. I have a halo that sits high and I never had an issue with it

makeupluvr :  I take all my rings off every night (in fact, all my weband come off when I get home). My grandmother was a jeweller and I can’t tell you how many rings came with distraght women who lost the diamond in their bed. Plus, why would you want to subject your ring to the constant rubbing on the covers, risk of snagging or nailing others in the bed. Also, it lets the skin under your ring and the ring dry out, so you have less risk of a skin reaction. If you sleep in them, all the junk gets to stay warm and wet and happy…ick. Off with them and clean frequently!

makeupluvr :  I used to sleep in mine but my jeweler advised me not to in case the prongs snag and loosen up, in which case I could lose my stone. The place I got my original engagement ring didn’t haven’t warranties, so I would have to pay out of pocket to replace the stone. Now it is habit, and I have a jewelry box with a section for rings. I’ve been consistent about where I take my rings off, so I’ve never had a problem with losing them or even a scare. My jewelry box at night, if I need to take them off for a shower they go on a shelf by the medicine cabinet, and if I take them off cooking I always stick them on this Keurig kcup rack–I always know where to find them! And I find it more comfortable at night!

I usually take my ring(s) off when I get home, but sometimes, when I’m alone and feel lonely (we seem to be long distance more than together…), I will sleep with my band on to feel connected. It’s not comfortable, though.

I usually take it off and put it in its box on the bedside table, but I have forgotten the odd time and slept in it. I will probably get a pretty box or dish for it at some stage. When I was married the first time I had a velvet lined wooden box with a lid my husband bought me and always put my earrings, necklace, e ring and eternity ring in the box and left my wedding ring on. I’ll probably do something similar this time round. My cousin sleeps in her 2.6 carat solitaire though and hasn’t had any problems in nearly 10 years.
