I do not remove my rings in public places. I haven’t run into any scenarios where they’d get in the way. If I’m on my way to a fitness class then I either leave them at home or locked up in my car, and I make sure to lock them up before I arrive to my destination so no one sees me take them off and decides to break into my car.

nope. I wouldn’t do that kind of work at home with my rings on and I would leave my ring at home if I was planning on going to Home Depot, but if something unexpected came up I’d leave them all. I’d rather risk damaging them than losing them!

I chose my ring because it’s quite delicate looking but very robust and has a very low profile so less likely to get damaged.
There are really only two situations where I’ve had to take it off unexpedectly:
1. Unplanned manicures – I looooooove the hand massage part of a manicure and hate my rings being on for it so always take them off. There are times where I’ve been wanting/needing a manicure but no clear time to make an appointment so if ~1 hr unexpectedly frees up I’ll do a drop in –> Rings get zippered into the change pocket of my wallet
2. Handling a horse in potentially dangerous situations. Even though my ring is flat profile, I’ve heard too many horror stories of lead ropes/reins getting caught on rings when a horse panics and serious damage is done to the finger. So if I’m in a situation where I need to handle a horse that is acting up then I’ll pop my rings off –> rings get tucked into my cubby/locker at the barn
In both cases I put my rings on ASAP afterwards.

Yes, several times per day to put on lotion.

the question I was asking wasn’t whether people thought I was silly or not to put my ring away. You’re more comfortable keeping your rings on, that’s totally cool and within your comfort level.
The question I was asking was if anyone was caught off guard in a situation where they felt they had to take their rings off, even if they didn’t want too. In my situation, I didn’t want the splinters in the plywood messing with the Halo in my ring.

Thanks for your response. I love horses. The ones you handle are very lucky!

And my point was that I just don’t take off my rings unless I am at home and then they go in the same place. They have halos also. My point was I’m too absent-minded to take my rings off. I’d forget where I put them. I do this with my phone a lot.
But if I was confronted with the sudden need to scuba dive I’d put them in a zippered pouch in my bag so that my fingers dont get bitten off by a barracuda.

I carved pumpkins at a friend’s last night and didn’t want my ring gooped up with pumpkiny grossness. I wear a pearl necklace with a security clasp every day, so I took my ring off, looped it onto my necklace, a redid the security clasp. Bam. Ring was secure, out of the way, and clean.

Why would you take your rings off for that? I’m so confused. It doesn’t seem like a necessary reason to remove your ring.
I never take mine off in public. The chance of losing it is too great.

I am always taking my rings off! Like today we had a pot luck and I was not going to be cutting up food and making sandwichs for other people with my rings on, this was food so I felt my rings were not clean enough to keep on. But yeah I take my off if I am doing anything that requires alot of hand movement.

I always wear a necklace (never take it off) so if I have to take my rings off I put them on the necklace. I’ve also put my husbands on there when he’s taken his off to go diving.

I have had to a couple times when I end up helping Fiance unload something or working on a project that I didnt expect to be so rough on my hands. I usually find a pocket that zips up or put my ring in the zipper part of my wallet.

I love that everyone here loves their rings and was just curious if other bees ended up in unexpected situations where they weren’t comfortable keeping their rings on, that’s all I was asking. I wasn’t asking whether people thought I was right or wrong to do so, or question why I did so. In my mind, there’s no right or wrong answer, everyone has their own level of comfort with their rings. Thats what makes us all different and unique, and I love that. In my situation, I wasn’t comfortable leaving my ring on, and for me, I’m glad I put it away at the time, although I sure wouldn’t make it a regular habit.
