I take mine off in the shower, washing/lotioning my hands, doing dirty hands things like washing dishes and gardening, and for the field work required for my job (eg riding an atv all day).  I wear it around the house and to bed.  My ring is over 100 years old and the stones aren’t loose whatsoever.

No issues with mine.

I take mine off as soon as I get home and only put it on if I am leaving the house.

I almost never take mine off. I take it off for massages, when I’m baking, and when I get my arms waxed. That’s pretty much it. I’m more paranoid about it being lost or stolen if I take it off than damaging it when I wear it. Plus I just feel completely naked and panicked whenever I take it off. Maybe I’ll take it off more when I have a band to keep on in its place.

I only occasionally take them off to clean them more thoroughly than I do daily. I was married previously for 25 years and never took my rings off except for cleaning and nothing ever happened to them.  The jeweler who made them said they are made to be worn all the time with rare exceptions for common sense situations like having my hands in unusual chemicals or when doing extra-heavy work. I never understood why women make such a fuss about getting THE RING and then take it off all the time. I’d feel naked without my rings and would feel awful if my husband took his ring off. I’ll probably even get an inexpensive wedding band for the rare times I might not wear my regular rings (maybe traveling to certain countries).

@RahlyRah:  I have the same routine (love wearing PJs)!  The only exception is that I wear my wedding ring 24/7.

I have a RHR that I never take off. I shower with it sleep with it, etc. I just got my engagement ring on Saturday and it’s being resized so I havent gotten to wear it yet, but I don’t think I will be leaving it on all the time like I do with my RHR. I’m scared it wont be able to withstand the abuse my RHR ring takes. I’m going to take it off for bed, showering and cleaning.

When I shower, handle meat or chemicals and when I go to clinicals.

I’ve only had mine for two months or so, and so I’m babying it. I don’t wear it a lot at all. But the downside is that I forget it sometimes. I am driving down the street and realize I didn’t put it on.

Edit: WHOA.  I thought I resized those but apparently not.

I’m also in a medical field – I take mine off when I am doing surgery (obvious reasons) and sometimes when I go swimming (but that’s just until I get a resize as I’m afraid it will fall off in the pool!)

I’m pretty rough on my hands so I’m worried that I’ll run into trouble in the future, but my SO knows me well and got the ring insured for when that happens.

I never do unless I know I’ll be touching chemicals with my left hand!

I only take of my rings when I’m showering or doing dishes/cleaning.
