I’m just curious; when and for what reason do you take your e-ring/wedding band(s) off?
Washing your hands? Cooking? Cleaning? Sleeping? At the gym?
For me (and for comfort), I’ve started taking my ring off when I go to bed, when I’m cleaning (or just using chemical cleaners), and of course, while I take a bath/shower/for the post-bath/shower lotioning.
And of course, since I love seeing all sorts of rings, share details/photos of your beauties if you’d like 😀
ETA: And when SHOULD your rings be taken off for the best care of them?

I take off my ring when I’m showering, doing my hair/makeup, sleeping, cleaning, exercising, or doing outdoor activities.

I honestly don’t wear my ring around the house. (I work from home)… So I only wear it when I leave or have company over.

Showering, sleeping, cleaning, cooking, during outdoorsy activities.
I don’t want to loose it down the drain of the shower!
I don’t want to get it full of food when I am cooking or baking!
I don’t want to “hurt it” with harsh cleaning products.
And I just feel more comfy sleeping without any jewelry on at all.
I don’t want to drop my ring in the lake by mistake when we are out fishing or loose it in the snow when we snowshoe!

I don’t wear mine when I’m sleeping, showering, doing hair/make-up, cleaning, cooking, when I’m working out or if I’m doing somethings outdoorsy. I did buy a plain rose gold band that I wear in place of my engagement ring for outdoorsy stuff, like camping, canoeing, etc. and I love it!

I take it off when I go to the gym and every minute I’m home.

I take them off when I shower and lotion up in the morning or when I wash my face at night. I put them back on when I’m done with my hair and makeup or heading to bed (I do sleep in my rings). I tend to take them off when I’m working with raw meat or messy foods in the kitchen or when I decide to do a lot of dishes by hand. Same goes for heavy duty cleaning with harsh products, even though I wear yellow gloves most of the time. I prefer to just take them off.

I’ve only had my ring for a month but I only take it off when I am showering or applying lotion so its doesn’t get gooped up. Otherwise it stays on my hand in fear it will be lost.

I only really wear my engagement ring when I’m out now. I’ve got into the habit of comfy clothes at home, including taking off my watch and e-ring. I’ll usually take it off for messy cooking or cleaning, and to sleep/shower too. My (plain white gold) wedding band is on 24/7. I just clean my solitaire with a baby toothbrush and washing up liquid!

I wear my ring all the time except for when I am swimming or in the sauna. My colleague took her ring off to wash her hands, forgot about it and walked off. When she came back, it was gone! She was so so very upset, and after that I decided to avoid taking my ring off as much as possible. I also have massive knuckles but tiny fingers so it’s painful to take the ring on and off

I take it off when I’m showering, or when I’m cleaning out dog wash tubs at work (I work at a pet store). Other than that, I tend to leave it on.

I don’t really where my ring at home. I put it on my ring stand when I get home and change clothes. I take it off at work if I’m doing some heavy cleaning and I take it off at the gym. If I’m not home I put the ring in my Lion Latch. Its a portable small jewlery holder that you can attach to your keychain. I never take my ring off just to wash my hands if its already on, way too scared it would go down the drain or I would forget it.

I take it off to shower and when I do the dishes or other heavy cleaning. Otherwise I wear it 24/7!

I take off my ering for cooking, dishes, shower, etc. because it’s Aquamarine which gets dirty within like 5 minutes, and it’s softer than most stones so I try not to bang it on anything. I never take my wedding band off because it’s just a plain white gold miligrain band.

From when I go to bed until after my morning shower (I can’t stand sleeping with any jewelry on).
