I’m not sure if this is the proper group for this discussion. However, I wanted to know if you ladies and/or gents wear your engagement rings all the time.
Recently, I was made to feel bad, perhaps unintentionally but perhaps not, about not wearing my engagement ring 24/7. My FHs family and I were talking about planning and my rings and such. When a member of his family said that an engagement ring should be worn at ALL times and never taken off, with quite the attitude. As if she judging me for taking it off. Mind you, I take it off right when I get home, and put it right back on when I go out anywhere. I don’t want to get it dirty, damaged, or lose its shine while I am doing my everyday tasks at home.
So tell me, what do you do? Do you wear it at all times, without taking it off? Or do you take it off for certain tasks?
Hi! I usually take it off when I get home from work (in the past). Now I wear it around the house and take it off when I go out. Don’t feel bad. You can decide when to wear it. Around when covid-19, I stopped wearing my engagement ring to work, as I didn’t want to ruin it with all the handwashing and using hand sanitizer. My fiancé didn’t mind at all.
I wear it all the time, unless I’m showering or doing dishes. I also put it in a bowl with a drop of dish detergent and almost hot water for 15 minutes to clean it. After that, I use a soft toothbrush to brush my ring and rinse it in almost hot water. I do that once a week to keep it clean and sparkling.
No way! That’s one way for it to get damaged easily and depending on the ring it’s uncomfortable. I’ve been engaged for two years and absolutely love my ring and my FH, but it’s kinda of heavy and has a high prong setting... It gets caught on things like blankets easily. A piece of jewelry shouldn’t signify your love for you FH. Ignore the haters and do what is comfortable for you.
I only wear mine when I don't have certain chores or off of work (I work in manufacturing). I either wear no ring or where my silicone one in it's place. Look into the Groove rings. They are pretty mic
I am a hairdresser and am constantly taking mine off during the day. I dont want chemicals and hair products to mess it up. I never wear my ring around the house at all. Quick as I get home I put it in my safe keeping spot. I dont even shower with it on. I do wear it when I'm out and about. Most of the time I'd rather just keep it in my safe spot so I know it's not going to get ruined or lost. My ring is a size too big and slips right off my finger!
Hey girl! Sorry for the Tude from the family! I personally wear it all day everyday unless I’m in the shower, washing my hands or putting on lotion. But you shouldn’t Worry about anyone else’s opinion but your FH’s... his is what matters the most! 💜 💍 Show that baby off!
Truthfully, I have never been a ring-wearer because I am always doing manual labor so I have to remind myself to wear my engagement ring 😏. I intentionally wear it around my FH or when I leave my home but for the most part, it is locked away when I'm just sitting around home with my children and pets. As long as he knows I mean no disrespect, we're GOOD.
Do what works for you. There are certain jobs where a ring (or any jewelry) is a safety hazard so it can't be worn. Some household tasks (cleaning, cooking, etc) are havoc on a ring and it's best to take it off. A ring doesn't define the commitment you have. Ignore anyone who tells you that it does and that you aren't faithful or committed if you take it off for any reason.
I was told by the salesman that you should never wear your ring in any kind of water; lakes, oceans, pools, hot tubs, showering doing dishes. The water may not necessarily hurt the metal or your diamond all thought it can technically tarnish and dull the shine of the metal and diamond. But there are chances too that if you wear it in deep water such as oceans and lakes your finger can shrink and your ring could fall off. Obviously, this is just my opinion, but I will never be wearing mine in any kind of water or activities that might include such. If you are worried people might not know your married or something invest in silicone ring(s) to wear when you are not wearing your diamond one, and or wear it to work as well depending on your occupation.
As someone who doesn’t wear much jewelry, it would feel unnatural to suddenly wear a ring 24/7. The stone gets in the way during workouts anyway, so I have to take it off at least once a day if not also when I shower, or cook. I would talk to your FH to see if he feels badly about you taking it off. I’m sure if he hasn’t brought it up, there’s no need to feel badly!
