I take mine off all the time!  When I sleep, shower, do dishes, etc.  I just hate getting it dirty and its unconfortable to sleep in!  I’m suprised I haven’t lost it!

Ditto kitten. I take mine off before I sleep, when I clean or do dishes, when I shower, when I lotion etc. Darling Husband bought me a suede lined box to put my rings to keep them safe whenever they aren’t on my finger.

Not married yet, so I just have my e-ring, but I wear it all the time–to bed, in the shower. I take it off to wash my dog or to clean the bathroom or kitchen, but that’s pretty much it. When I do take it off, it goes right in its box and then right back on my finger when I’m done. I feel naked without it!

I take mine off when I do dishes or shower.  That’s about it.

Only e-ring at this point, which I take off when I shower, do really dirty dishes, aka scrubbing pots and pans with chemicals, not just rinsing off cup or something, usually I take it off before I go to bed as well, but not always. I love my ring, I don’t ever want to be without it.

I only have an engagement ring.  I take it off for showers, cleaning, and during the use of hairspray, where it sits in a really pretty box.

just the e-ring for now… i take mine off when i shower or go to bed. i actually don’t even wear it around the house unless we have company over which is rare too. so basically i just wear it when we’re out and about. it took a while for me to even get used to it so i left it at home a lot for the first couple of months.

did anyone else have that problem???

I take my ering off to shower and lotion. Even though its not loose, I am constantly afraid it will go down the drain in the shower!! I am not a jewelry wearer, so it felt so weird when I first got it. Now I feel naked without it!

Miss Texas- I’ve left home w/o my ring once and I felt so weird I turned around and went home to get it 🙂

 Does everyone have their ring insured? Being an insurance adjuster, I strongly suggest that to anyone who doesn’t.

I only have my engagement ring as of now, and I almost never take mine off!!  Only to clean it or to put lotion on (and I dont even always do that) … my jeweler said as long as I bring it in twice a year to get it cleaned (free of charge!) it should last a lifetime, even if I wear it constantly! Sometimes I twist it if it’s getting caught on things, but I dont take it off.

I take off my e-ring when I shower, do dishes, or anything that requires soap/detergent and water. I have this fear that either my ring will slip off or one of the diamonds will fall off. That actually happened to my friend. How scary is that!?

I only have my e-ring, and the first month I took it off whenever I did anything!  I was a counselor at a camp for kids and was terrified I would lose it.  Now, like several others, I don’t take it off unless I am cleaning or putting on lotion. FI doesn’t like that I take it off at all; he purchased extra insurance so that anything that happened to it would be covered as long as I never miss my set check dates.  I’m less stressed about something happening now!

when i first got engaged (a little over a year ago) i took it off for everything–dishes, shower, etc.–but now i pretty much never take it off. my fiance really hates when i take it off (so i’m a little clumsy and forgetful), so i told him i wouldn’t take it off anymore. it’s had a tough life already!

I take it off when I shower, do dishes, put on lotion, and if I’m using weights at the gym I will will either take if off then or wear work-out gloves.  My hubby does the same with his.
