    I take mine off to sleep, shower, dishes, gardening,hunting, really anything that involves getting my hands messy or a good chance my ring will come in sharp contact with something that might chip it. 

    To me, I don’t see my finger being any “safer” of a place for my ring to be depending on what I’m doing. If your ring has prongs, when you sleep they catch on the sheets and over time loosen them, and that’s a huge risk to losing the stone. I have a couple dishes throughout the house where I put my jewelry when I take it off for something and I have yet to lose anything.

    I do plan on getting one of those ring holder necklaces in the future so I can still be “wearing it” without worrying about damaging it.

    I am not allowed to wear any jewelry to work so I have no choice but to take it off. I also take it off for certain jobs around the house because I don’t want to damage it.

    I take my ering off to sleep, workout, when I have to do anything dirty, wash dishes, etc.  Anything that I think could damage it or get dirt in it

    I usually take off all my rings when I get home and have to make supper and get ready for the next days events (work etc)

    I take my rings off whenever I am at home.  I mainly do it for comfort reasons but I also prefer to take it off when I am cooking and cleaning for cleanliness reasons.  My husband does the same thing.  We really only wear them when we leave the house.

    ETA: I always put my rings in my jewelry box when I take them off.  If you have a designated place to put them then there really is no risk involved.

    I take mine off to clean, cook, shower, etc but I leave it on when I sleep. Maybe I should reconsider that if it loosens prongs!

    I take mine off all the time too for cooking, cleaning, showering, sleeping. Today, it’s 5pm and I’ve been home all day and not had them on at all. However, I am absolutely fastidious about where I keep my rings. I have pot on my bedroom windowsill that they go into when I’m not wearing them, or they sit on the windowsill in the kitchen. They are the only two places in the house where my rings are allowed to be, and I never leave them anywhere else. I can be quite lax about losing stuff but I am ultra careful with them.

    I take it off at night, to do dishes, cleaning, showering, working out, ect.  I also like to take them off for comfort reasons.  I have a designeted spot to put them when i take them off, so I am not worried about lossing them.

    I used to baby my rings because I was terrified of losing stones.  I’ve had prongs rebuilt, rings reset, etc, because of damage.  I finally got sick of it (after 12 years, long progression of rings here) and bought my platinum low-set solitaire.   My point for buying it was to be comfortable all the time and be able to bang it up and wear it all the time.  So I do.  Smile  It’s a good setting for a left-handed clutz like me.

    I take mine off for sleeping/cleaning/dirty work to prevent damage, and if I’m not going anywhere that day, I might not put them on at all. I think as long as they are ALWAYS in a designated place the risk of losing them is low.

    My knuckles make it hard to take them off so I don’t. I am very careful though and wear gloves for any messy work.

    I take my ering (solitaire) off as soon as I get home. I never take my wedding band off.

    I only wear mine if I am leaving the house, except for going to the gym. I take it off as soon as I come in the door.
