Hello brides! I’m new to this, so I wanted to know how many of you sleep in your rings. I’ve been taking mine off at night and when I clean. I wish I could wear it all night but it gets stuck on the covers.
I wear mine all the time. Sleeping, cleaning, gardening, working, etc. I clean it regularly. I'm too afraid to take it off all the time. I'll probably lose it. If I am doing something messy (like when I'm making bread or meatballs, etc) I have my FH hold on to it so I don't forget about it.
I rarely wear my engagement ring. I tried to at first, but I just couldn't get used to it, so now I only wear it for special occasions. I wear it when we go out with friends or out for a date night, but otherwise in normal daily life (at home, at the grocery store, at work, etc), I don't wear it. I anticipate that I'll wear my wedding ring way more often once we actually get married.
I pretty much never wear my rings at home. I take them off to cook anything messy, clean, sleep, shower...it just got to be too much. My wife and dog are the only ones that see me at home, they both know I’m married.
You should be taking it off to sleep, shower, cook certain things, clean, do dishes, apply makeup, apply lotion, swim, etc. I used to work in jewelry. Everyday chemicals do damage over time, sleeping in them puts the prongs at risk and increases the risk of losing stones, swimming does damage and increases the risk of losing the jewelry, etc. If you want your ring to stand the test of time, you need to take it off when doing certain things. You’d be surprised at the damage these things do to rings, especially if they’re made of gold.
I take my ring off quite a bit. I don’t wear it when I’m sleeping, showering, or cleaning. Most of my hobbies are also times when I would not want to wear my ring (hiking, camping, paddle boarding, lifting). I bought a set of silicone rings on amazon and wear those when I don’t want to wear my actual ring. Despite me not wearing my ring all the time, it still got fairly dirty. I didn’t realize how dirty it was until I took it to get resized and they also cleaned it. It looked so much better when I got it back!
Pre-covid I took mine off when I cooked, cleaned, showered, slept. Basically anything that would damage the stone. I have a ring holder on my night stand and in the kitchen because those are the 2 places I would ever take my ring off.
Since I’ve been home I decided to tuck my ring away in the safe. I also put my wedding band that curves, tried to wear it alone a few weeks but felt like I’d damage that too. I finally spent the money on a simple band, it comes tomorrow and I plan on wearing that always minus showering and sleeping.
I take mine off at night. More so because I have taken jewelry off in my sleep in the past and I would be devastated if I woke up and couldnt find it. I also take it off while sleeping, cleaning and while at work, I work in a kitchen. But I feel lost when I have it off. Sometimes I'll go to touch it at work and my heart will drop for a second, then I remember its on my necklace lol.
I actually spend more time not wearing my ring than I do wearing it 😅 I don't wear it at home because I tend to scratch myself with it or catch it on things and I work in a sheet metal factory so I don't wear it to work for safety's sake, I really only wear it on my days off when I leave the house
