I take it off every time I was my hands or face or do dishes. I take it off as soon as I get home. And I don’t wear it to the gym.

If you were told to take it off while doing dishes you should definitely take it off if you’re swimming in a pool.

I take mine off when I swim in pools, go to the gym, and do chores with harsh cleaning supplies.   I keep it on when I do dishes….unless there are a ton of them.   Otherwise I always wear it.

@mhernandez5:  I take off my rings when I wash dishes, do any cleaning, take a shower or bath, go into the pool, put on lotion, when I go to sleep, and when I garden. I always put them in only 3 spots. I have 3 different holders in 3 special areas, that way I don’t just put them some random place where if your cleaning – could accidently get thrown out – heard a terrifying story about that once. *shudders* – The ring was located, but I can’t imagine!

@mhernandez5:  FH doesn’t like it when I wear it in the shower – he’s afraid it’ll go down the drain, so I take it off.  I also don’t wear it swimming.  I wear it doing the dishes all the time.  I do try and take it off if I’m doing anything ‘icky’ like using lotion or getting my hands in ground meat

I take them off when I’m doing something disgusting like cleaning chicken, putting on lotion, and that’s about it.   I take it off to clean it, and I clean it pretty often given that I always wear it (including at work, and I work in a dirty auto body shop)

I don’t have my engagement ring yet, but I’ve had a promise ring for a little over a year and a half. I almost never take mine off. I wear it in the shower, dishes, pool, beach, etc. and it’s never been damaged. I only take it off if I give my boyfriend a massage with lotion, and that’s only because I hate the feeling of lotion under my ring.

@mhernandez5:  I never take mine off except to clean it. Although my Father-In-Law is a jeweler and he did say not to wear it to the beach!

I remove my ring when I shower, do the dishes, and go to the pool since soap leaves a film and chlorine would damage it. I really hate taking it off, though. My finger feels odd without it, even for a minute.

@mhernandez5:  Itake mine off to cook,clean, shower, and swim. I wear it to run and in the gym. My thought is that my finger shrinks in water, so the rings will slide off. They swell while or king out, so the ring is safe.

I would take it off at the pool. My white gold plating (for my right hand ring) looked a lot more yellow when I wore it during our last warm weather holiday (lots of pool time). You could also smack it against the side of the pool and chip the diamond.

I take my e-ring off during anything that may damage it, but yes, it has a lot of pave stones and is pretty delicate. I probably would take a solitaire off during certain activities too, though!

@VictorianChick:  Butter plates rule. I have those for jewellery too. 🙂

Aikido class, dishes and putting on hand cream.  Other than that, I keep it on.

I work manual labor, so I don’t wear my ring to work, I don’t wear it working out, swimming, or when I am cleaning with any chemicals… But I’m probably a little over protective!

It comes off for dishes, showering, washing my hands, putting on lotion, working out, and sleeping.
