I take mine off to shower, do the dishes, dye my hair, or anything crafty with paint.

When cleaning with harsh chemicals or “dirty” cooking, using lotion or putting my make up on.

I fixed the issue of possibly loosing them with a charm holder necklace. Just push the little thing drop the rings on and close it. done and done.

I take mine off any time I’m cleaning with chemicals (damage), cooking with meats (germs/smell), working/playing with tools/equiptment that might bend or scratch the metals/prongs (damage), when I shower (soapy slippery hands = ring down the drain or a diamond falling out and gone forever), and to sleep (the sheets can wear away your prongs and make your diamond/gems fall out, or you can poke your face). My fingers swell when I exercise, so I wear my plain band (a 1/4 size larger) for that, not my ering set. 

I don’t usually put them on until after I do my makeup b/c my hands swell a bit from the shower heat, and I hate having to clean around/under my ring if I get foundation or something on it (or scratching my face with a prong, that would suck – I’m clumsy in the morning w/o my coffee).

@marinewifetobe:  Yup, I use my hands to put make up on, not really a brush person.  And that means, clean face with a scrub, dry, lotion, base, powder and so on…my rings are carved, so its easy to get gunky.

I take mine off when cleaning to avoid harsh chemicals damaging them, when I’m cooking because rings harbor bacteria that I don’t want in my food, when in the shower or washing my hands because I don’t want any stones that might be loose going down the drain and I also don’t want soap scum building up in the nooks and crannies, when I’m doing my makeup so I don’t get any crud in there, and when I’m exercising because I just don’t like how it feels.

I take mine off as soon as I get home. I do too many things with my hands at home to risk it. I play rough with the dog. Once, it got caught on the door of the washing machine (the door is one flat piece of metal that curls around itself to round the edges, and my ring got stuck under that) and I thought I was going to lose my finger when I dropped laundry in and my hand didn’t come back out. It HURT. So I just basically only wear my ring outside of the house, so I don’t have to worry about losing a finger or stabbing the dog in the eye.

I don’t! Not never, ever, NEVER! I will lose it. If I absolutely need to for some reason, I say out loud where I’m setting it down (auditory learner here) so I’ll remember better.

I grew up with parents who were jewelers and I NEVER take mine off, just for cleanings. I feel naked with out it.

I take them off when I’m cleaning, showering, or working out. I’m a little paranoid about losing stones. I also got a dummy ring to wear at work because my job wears my ring down pretty fast (white gold).
