    I take mine off to sleep, and to wash dishes/clean; it goes in its box though, I don’t just leave it lying around. I also always take it off in the shower as I find it slips round and get paranoid about losing it (my fingers expand and contract quite a bit; it can be quite tight some days and other days, loose enough that it swivels round). I also took it off on holiday while swimming, as salt water can damage white gold.

    i always keep my ring on. the only time i take it off is when i am cooking something like meatballs or chicken fingers and i have to use my hands to mix the meat or batter the chicken.

    I don’t shower, sleep, or clean in mine. And sometimes during the day, if I’m cold at work, my fingers shrink a little and my wedding and engagement rings get a little loose. So sometimes then, I’ll take them off and put them on a ring holders I bought from Urban Outfitters (a bunny with super long ears to hold the rings…so cute!).

    I voted other. I very, very rarely, if ever, take mine off. Maybe if I’m cooking something messy with my hands (ie. dough) or at hot yoga where it slips off and gets in the way. But other than that, never.

    I voted “other” as well.

    I take it off for cleaning, and doing anything extremely messy.

    Besides that, I do wear it at the gym (I have weightlifting gloves to protect it), and while I’m showering, etc.

    I just can’t justify taking it on-off-on-off-on-off a bunch of times per day, plus Fiance prefers to always see it on me! 🙂

    I pretty much never wear it! Only to social outings/special events.

    For errands, sports, cleaning, around the house etc I put in its place a simple rose gold band that I can beat up but not feel naked. I’m too paranoid to mess it up!

    I only take it off to shower and put lotion on. Or any time I’m doing something that I think could damage it or get it dirty.

    I take it off when I take the rest of my jewelry off after work at home.  So I don’t wait it to bed or showering.  I do wear it to the gym just because I usually go right from work to the gym so I’m not going to leave it in the car or something.

    I only take off my ring when I am doing something messy, like making hamburgers or something along those lines.

    I have a little jewelry zipper bag mine goes in…same place every time. I take mine off to:



    washing my face

    cleaning the house (dusting, mopping, cleaning bathrooms, etc.)

    if I’m at home will take off to lotion, otherwise I’ll just lotion around my finger

    cooking where my hands might get grubby

    Other than that…it took a long time for mine to be made in my size and with all the sizing issues once I got it back means I haven’t actually had mine very long. So this is what I’ve been doing so far…who knows what might come up in the future…

    @Jazziberry: I completely agree! I’m pretty sure I would lose my head if it wasn’t attached so I wear my ring at all times. I can’t count the number of times I’ve lost things by leaving them behind!

    I take my rings off when I use harsh chemicals while cleaning or if I take a shower. I wear it when I bath, though. I am to nervous when I am showering. Don’t want them slipping off & going down the drain!!!! Otherwise I wear them to sleep & everywhere else.
