Wearing Diamond Band 24/7

Hey everyone! I have a silly question - my fiancé and I just purchased our wedding bands and mine has diamonds on it (not all around but maybe halfway). We got insurance on it in case anything happens but I’m just wondering how many of you wear your diamond wedding bands 24/7 and if they were harmed? I don’t wear my engagement ring 24/7 but will want to wear my band all the time.

    My wedding band has pave diamonds halfway around. I take my ring off when washing dishes, showering, and working out. Otherwise, I'm wearing it. Since Covid, I barely wear my engagement ring.

    I wear both rings all the time. Unless I’m showering, at the gym or maybe working in the yard I leave mine on. They are insured.

    I wear mine all the time except to shower, doing something messy (painting, making meatballs, etc), & kayaking (I’ve even worn it to do this a couple of times). My ring is fine. I’ve been married 2 years and haven’t had any issues. I get it checked every 4-5 months at the jeweler.

    I never wear my engagement ring anymore but prior to getting my wedding band i wore my engagement ring only when i was out. the minute i got home i just took it off. especially when i slept there were times it would scratch me haha. i also find it more cumbersome than my wedding band which is just plain and thin

    My wedding band has diamonds half way around. I wear it all the time, except for showering, working out, washing dishes, or cleaning with chemicals. I have a little ring tray next to my bed to keep my engagement ring on while sleeping.

    Pre COVID I didn’t wear my wedding band 24/7, which also had diamonds. During covid I wear a simple band 24/7, sometimes I take it off but it’s normally on everyday.

    I wear both rings at all times. The ONLY exception is if I’m lifting weights and then I have a wristband I store them in. I don’t worry about it at all, it’s insured. I figure it’s much safer (and enjoyed!) on me than elsewhere.

    Hello Christin & all of you beautiful brides!

    Of course, everyone should do whatever they feel is best for them!

    Personally, I have not taken my engagement ring off (except a couple times to be cleaned back at our jewelers) since getting engaged over a year ago. I shower, workout, clean... I have worn a band of diamonds for the past 13 years on the other hand that I also have never taken off. If the diamonds are well set, you should be absolutely fine. :-)

    However all that being said.... Insurance is a must!

    Warmest Wishes to all!!

    I wear mine when I'm awake only. I am scared of sleeping with jewelry. I also take it off for dishes and stuff like that.

    I wear my set just about everyday and take them off as soon as I get home. If I'm home cleaning or relaxing, I leave it safe in its jewelry box

    I wear my ring 24/7, with the exception of hand washing, showering/washing hair, washing dishes, etc. All of our rings were purchased at Kays, and with the insurance plan you can go in and get it cleaned/inspected every 6 months but you can get it cleaned as often as you want. My fiancé doesn't plan on wearing his ring with the diamonds at work, due to his job in the Army.
