Should You Sleep With Your Engagement Ring On?

After you've said "yes" to your partner's proposal and slipped that oh-so-sparkly engagement ring on your finger, the only time you might consider taking it off is when you go to the gym—which, by the way, you should do, especially if you're lifting weights. But what about when you go to bed? Is it okay to sleep with that gorgeous ring on your finger, or should you take it off in the evening? We spoke with a few jewelry experts to weigh the benefits and drawbacks of wearing your ring to bed.

Sleeping with your engagement ring on is not a good idea, according to a fine jewelry store on Staten Island. An engagement ring is a valuable piece of jewelry that should be handled with care. It's easy for your ring to get caught in things while you're sleeping, such as your hair or your sheets, and this can cause the stone to loosen in the setting.

The biggest advantage of sleeping with your engagement ring is that you can't lose it when you're wearing it—especially if you're sleeping away from home. That makes sense, right? Different, new, and temporary settings. As an engagement ring and wedding band are designed to be worn at all times, I see only advantages. Taking it off frequently appears to be unlucky.

If you choose a stone other than white diamonds or other precious stones (such as sapphire, emeralds, and rubies), you should find out its hardness on the Mohs scale. Opals, for example, are quite fragile, and it may make the wearer feel more at ease to store it safely [at night]. The other scenario is if your ring is too tight and you experience overnight swelling in your fingers.

Taking off your engagement ring is probably a good idea if you're a big tosser and turner between the sheets. There is always the possibility that it will snag on your bedding and damage not only your bedding but also one of your ring's prongs. Sleeping with your body weight on your hands can gradually put pressure on the ring and cause it to lose shape, putting accent stones at risk. At night, large center stones or stones with edges (such as square or elongated cuts) can scratch you or your partner.

While the final decision is yours, safety and precaution should take precedence. Taking your engagement ring in for cleaning and inspection every six months. This will ensure that all of your precious stones are secure and tight in their settings, and that no part of your ring is damaged.
