I take it off: 

To sleep because my hands swell up at night. 

Anytime I’m using my hands with meat 

When I’m cleaning with harsh chemicals. 

but I try to not take off because I’m afraid of losing it! Plus there have been times when I forget at home and have mini heart attacks. lol

I take mine off for work because it’s quite big and the pointy corners of the setting cut through surgical gloves – I figure it’s safer in its box at home than bring taken on / off a hundred times each shift and being put in my scrubs pocket. However it goes back on the minute I get home, I hate not wearing it. 

I also take it off at the gym, while doing the gardening, while showering and while preparing messy foods (meatballs etc).

I’ve been engaged since november. I never take it off. Ever. I work in mining and run a cattle farm in the afternoons and weekends. It never comes off.

I don’t usually take mine off at all BUT this week I have twice… One to mix meat for meatballs- who wants that stuck in their ring lol and again when I used cast iron cleaner on my sink. Other than those two things I wear it for everything including weight lifting/exercise and showering

mrsboyd2015:  Mine is very high profile, so I take it off when I go to bed because I’m afraid I’m going to gouge my eye out!  😀 I put it back on after I am showered and dressed. I also take it off when I’m cleaning if I’m not using gloves. I’m sure it would be fine, but I’d rather not expose it to harsh chemicals and stuff.

Baking, cooking splashy/greasy/messy things, showering and sleeping. It’s mainly driven by obsession about keeping it clean and sparkly. I thought I’d sleep in it as I always slept in my heirloom ring, but in the morning I can see that the diamond has a light film because they’re lipophilic. Now I remove both.

I’m so pleased I didn’t end up with pave as it wouldn’t stand up to my cleaning regime, – I’m forever cleaning it with the little brush or bunging in the ultrasound. 

I’m going to wear it 24/7 on my honeymoon in July as I won’t risk theft from the hotel room etc. I’ll take Diamond Dazzle sticks and a cloth but I know it will bug me, particularly applying sun tan lotion! My poor ring!

I’m not OCD about anything else. It’s just so beautiful and I love it so much that keeping it looking it’s best seems a no-brainer. A dirty diamond loses so much performance, your fiance might as well have saved his money and bought a lower cut, clarity and colour. Like I said, obsessed!

I love wearing my wedding set everyday.  I take my wedding set off at home and I only wear my wedding band at the gym.

Sleep. My fingers swell a little when I sleep and it makes them uncomfortable.

I also take it off to hand mix meat when I make meatballs and such but that’s kind of a given.

I take mine off when I shower, do dishes, painting and if I’m going to be working in the yard.   I use to take them off while sleeping, but I have a kitten who is a thief and has stolen my band before, so now I usually just leave them on. 

I am actually pretty rough on my rings, and both are knife-edge with pave settings, so I’m REALLY surprised I haven’t had any issues losing diamonds.

I imagine when I get my ering… that I will treat it like my school ring, It only comes off when I am cleaning, doing dishes, showering and working out. Although I might wear it to a not really hands on workout like plyos just to show it off the first time in the gym 🙂 Let all the creepy guys know I am taken! lol
