I only take it off when I’m doing something dirty: working with raw meat, gardening, stripping wallpaper, etc. I also take it off when I put on lotion. I put it in a ring dish that one of my best friends gave me for my birthday. Otherwise, it’s always on. I feel really weird not wearing it.

I take my rings off when I get home.

The minute I walk in the house, jewelry, shoes, and bra must go. I have a special dish for the rings.

I take mine off quite a bit.

I don’t workout with any of my rings on, I don’t like the feeling of having rings on when using weights, as they are uncomfortable.

I take them off when I use hand cream at my desk at work because I don’t want the cream to clog any little bits of the ring, but I usually put them straight back on again after that.

I also take them off at night, I don’t like wearing any jewellery to bed, they go on a little ring holder on my night stand, and I don’t put them on till the morning after I shower.

I take mine off when I sleep, shower, go to the gym, wash dishes, swim, work on the house (we’re renovating and doing as much as possible ourselves) and when I’m cooking anything that I’m likely to use my hands for (such as meatballs). I don’t really garden, but if I did my e-ring would be coming off then too. I have a dish in the bathroom that I place all of my jewellery in when showering and I keep the ring box on my bedside table to store it overnight. When I wash the dishes, I tend to just slip it into my pocket and put it back on straight after. When I go to the gym or go swimming, I’ll leave my ring at home. If I can’t for whatever reason (such as an unplanned visit), I have a locker at the gym so I put my rings in my purse and lock it up until my workout is over.

jl2017 :  I know how that feels. I took mine off putting on lotion in my car once and I thought I lost it at the DMV because I was like hold up WHERE’S MY RING (it wasnt on my finger), but luckily I found it 15 mins later deep in the passenger’s seat. SCARY moment. 

I only take it off while putting on lotion and leave it where it’s visible and hand washing my ring with dawn soap or something. Those are the only times. Other than that, I shower with it, sleep with it on…etc. 🙂

jl2017 :  i only take mine off for rough physical chores and cleaning it. Never outside. And whenever Im not wearing it I put it on a Gold chain around my neck. If Im putting on hand lotion I hold it with my teeth 😛

I take mine off for heavy-duty workouts (boxing, weight lifting, HIIT, bootcamp) or ocean swimming. I leave it on for yoga, spinning, showering, casual pool time and small household cleaning.
