The only time I’ve ever taken my ering off, I’ve ensured that my stunt ring follows.  Ususally that’s when I bake or cook.  Sometimes if I know I’m going to be active. 

He proposed with both rings, so it’s kind of like I have an Ering on at all times.

I take it off for cooking, cleaning, showering, doing my hair (gets easily caught in my hair), and when I go to sleep.  Actually, because I take it off for so many things, I often take it off shortly after I get home (when I might be cooking) and don’t put it on again until the next morning.  Right now I’m traveling in a foreign country in a city infamous for crime, so I left my ring back home.  I won’t have it, nor my Fiance, for 3 weeks. 🙁

I’m batting 50/50 for wearing my ring. Although quite a few people automatically ask me for my ring when I’m not wearing it. Although once I was an idiot and went to a get together with Fi family and left my ring behind by mistake. I think it’s a habit and I will try to get used to wearing a ring everyday.

I think I’ve only take it off about a couple of times since getting engaged. One time was gardening and the other making clay sculptures so didn’t want clumps in the stone setting.

I take it off for messy food prep, gardening and putting on hand cream

I’m hit or miss about it when I’m in the house. For example, I take it off to go to boxing classes some nights, so after I come home and shower a lot of nights I don’t put it back on.

And yeah, I take it off for boxing- it’ll rip up the inside of my gloves, it’s hard to wrap my hands with it on, and I’m afraid of damaging it or hurting one of the bones in my hands with it.  Hitting the heavy bags is hard on my hands as is, no need to make it worse.

I take it off to do yard work, when I’m wearing gloves- I see no reason to get it filthy when I’m just in my own backyard.

And I don’t wear it at night, in the shower, or when I’m working with raw meat in the kitchen.

Cooking, showering, anything messy or dirty, and sleeping. Once in a while I wear it to work, but it depends on which department in the hospital I’m going to be in.

I take my rings off as soon as I walk in the door.  I’m constantly cooking, cleaning, etc and don’t want to get them dirty.

Sleeping, working out, anything involving water,  and any kind of work with my hands.  Sometimes I just don’t wear it around the house.

Sleeping, working out/playing softball, deep cleaning. Otherwise, it’s on my finger.

I hardly ever take mine off. I do take them off when I’m cleaning with anything that has bleach in it, when swimming in a pool (chlorine is bad for gold), when I’m painting, when I have to put my hands in anything messy (like tonight I made meatloaf), when I’m cleaning my rings, and when I’m coloring my hair. I should take them off when I’m gardening, but I usually forget. 

I have a hook in the bathroom where I hang my rings when I’m putting product in my hair (mousse or gel) and when I’m putting on lotion. 

I guess I take them off more often than I thought, but never for very long. They go right back on as soon as I finish whatever I’m doing.  

I never take them off when I’m sleeping. I know they say you should, because the sheets will scractch them or something like that, but I have nightmares about losing them when they’re not on my finger at night.

I take mine off when I’m sleeping & showering because I find them uncomfortable then (Get caught in my hair when I shower, and scratch my face when I’m sleeping). I also take them off when handling raw meat.

If Im doing a very intense workout and my hands will sweal a lot and to clean my ring. When I clean with chemicals I wear nitril gloves so there is no good reason to take it off in my opinion.

Edit: I bought my ring so it wouldnt catch on everything and it does not scratch either. Claws are overrated.

I don’t wear mine when I’m showering, cleaning, or cooking. I definitely keep a ring holder by the sink so I’m not tempted to lay it on the counter.  Sadly I left it there this morining when I was doing the dishes and was without my ring all day =(

I only take mine off to clean it, put on lotion, and during yoga class or at the gym.
