Mine is left on nearly all the time. Sleeping, showering dishes etc. I only take it off if I’m doing soething I seriously hink might damage it. I’ve taken it off while painting walls, and for certain tasks at work, but that’s about it.

MissCookies:  Doesn’t it get caught in your hair when you wash it? That’s the reason I don’t think I could wear a ring in the shower.

KayJW:  Actually, gold is the most non reactive metal there is and will not tarnish.  Unless you’re sticking your hand in acid, or mixing it with another metal like mercury (note to all: take off all gold before going near the mercury in a broken thermometer), its going to be pretty safe on your finger in terms of tarnishing.  Platinum is also hypoallergenic and does not tarnish.  If you have a silver ring though,  you’re right that it should come off in the shower and stay away from water since silver does easily tarnish.

craigslistgirl:  I agree!  Well made jewelry is made for wearing and shouldn’t be that fragile.

Olgarie: I thought I was the only one who took off all jewellery (including my ring) when I get home. I feel bad because I don’t wear my ring all the time, but I’m just too worried about damaging it. I think when I get a wedding band, I’ll wear THAT 24/7.

I wear mine 100% of the time outside of the house and maybe about 30% of the time at home (i.e., I’ll wear it if I’m not doing much or if we have guests, but if I’m cleaning/cooking/showering/sleeping, it comes off). Not worried about damaging it, but I hate when it gets dirty and it’s more comfortable to roll around in bed with naked hands.

I wear mine 99.9% of the time. I take it off for showering, cooking, heavy duty cleaning.

FantasticFawn:  I haven’t had an issue, but my hairs pretty short, so that might have something to do with it 😛

I almost always leave it home if we are working on the house. I have left it at home when we have gone out of town. Didnt want to but Fiance doesn’t want me losing it.

I try to not take it off because I tend to forget to put it back on. I went 3 days without it Last week :-/.But when i touch raw meat I take it off. Also when I wash my hair. Otherwise it stays on. And if something weee to happen that’s what insurance is for.

MeandMyLouboutins:  Same here. I feel like we’re the only ones!

98% of the time my ering is on with my wedding band when I leave the house. Here and there I prefer to just wear my band during the day. My rings most often come off and are put in their ring holder within an hour of getting home. I love them so much, but I like feeling free of any jewelry in the evenings/night.

SarahDes:  i don’t  even plan to then. Honestly I grew up in a home where you were always working or doing, so my mother never wore her rings at home. Today they still look perfect. Never had a loose stone. No prongs ever bent or broke. To me it is so weird that some people can cook and shower or sleep in rings. Like isn’t that uncomfortable?

I take mine off to shower, sleep, cook, do heavy cleaning, and at work or in class. My ring is just a little too big and can’t be resized due to the design, so since I’m a restless sleeper, I worry it would fall off at night. Showering is because our drain doesn’t have a catch. Cleaning because I don’t want to do something to the metal (it’s silver, not gold), and cooking, at work, or in class because I’m a pastry chef and student and know exactly what kind of bacteria can linger on my ring. Also at work because it’s against sanitation standards.
