I only take my rings off for things that will involve getting my hands wet (I hate having wet rings) or to clean them. All of my rings are bezel settings, except for one of my commitment bands, which has four tiny 1mm prong set stones (it’s actually a “mother’s ring” that my partner acquired secondhand, but the colors match perfectly with my commitment ring’s stone, so I switch it out with my carved commitment band sometimes).

I wear my ring after showering in the morning, until I go to bed. I take it off when I do gardening or baking or any kind of more strenuous labor / handiwork, only occasionally for cooking. My center stone is a Tanzanite, so a lot softer than diamonds, so I’m extra careful with it.
I have a medical degree, but don’t work in the clinic right now. However, as soon as I go back, I will wear my ering only during non-work days. I don’t feel comfortable wearing it to and from work, since I’m afraid I’ll lose it or keep it in my scrubs (which I’ll toss in the laundry after work). I don’t think my fiancé will mind, though 🙂

Same story here. For some strange reason my fingers get all swollen at night so I don’t take my jewels to bed.

I am trying to be less paranoid with my ering and wedding band. I used to only wear it when I go out but I’m trying to remember I have a lifetime warranty on both rings. I’m not reckless with them but I am starting to wear them around the house and to bed. I only take it off when handling raw meats and before showering/applying lotions. For the amount of money spent on my rings I wouldn’t want to just house it in a box.
My ering is a platinum Tacori 3stone with pave and side stones(excuse my terminology lol) 1.51 center stone
Wedding band is white gold from Shane Co
If I didn’t have lifetime warranties and ring insurance THEN that would be a different story lol

It all depends on the setting you have and the way in which you sleep determines whether it causes damage to your ring. I have claw prongs and sleeping with my ring on is such a bad idea because not only is it a raised setting, it can easily poke and snag things during the night.
Plus, Between sheets, blankets, pillows, and a night’s worth of tossing and turning, your rings receive more direct contact while you’re asleep than they do all day long. The constant pressure and rubbing isn’t good for your rings long-term. It won’t show right away and you probably won’t ever wake up to a badly damaged ring, but taking it off at night can preserve their shine for much longer.
The main reason people suggest not sleeping in your rings is it is bad for your circulation. This is because our fingers swell during the night, causing jewelry that normally fits fine to become incredibly uncomfortable. It takes being upright for several minutes for fingers will return to their normal size and you’ll be able to slide your rings on with no pressure, no soap, and no worries.
Just my two cents =)

Even though my diamond is set high and can catch on things, I refuse to take it off, because I know I would lose it immediately. It has only been two weeks since I got it so the need may present itself, but it hasn’t yet!

Your ring is gorgeous! I don’t take mine off either. It’s high set and fairly large. I even wear mine at work! That’s what insurance and 6 mo checks are for! 🙂

I wear mine to bed every night. I’d say it’s pretty secure because 1) it fits snug on my finger 2) there aren’t any side stones to worry about coming loose and 3) it’s secured by a 6-prong setting. If I had a ring w/ side stones I wouldn’t wear it to bed. This is something I have been considering when looking for a wedding band. Do I want to have to take it off each night before bed? I may do a plan wedding band and get a sparkly anniversary band later on that I can put above my e-ring.

I forgot to post pics! 😁 So excited looking at everyone’s gorgeous rings! I never take mine off. Not even at work. My ering sits very high but I’m completely used to it now. Doesn’t bother me at all when I sleep and I haven’t scratched my Fiance with it yet! Haha Thank goodness for insurance, just in case! My ring is a permanent piece of me now.
