Before her marriage crumbled, Kim Kardashian admitted that she didn’t wear her massive $1 million, 20-carat engagement ring to the gym, which is smart because at that size and value it’s better to be safe than sorry. Which brings us to the topic of engagement ring care. If you’re recently engaged or just never got the memo on when and where its safe to wear your ring, we’ve rounded them up here.
But first, if and when you remove your ring for any reason, we recommend stashing it in a safe place, like the ring box it came in (if you’re traveling), a jewelry box (if you’re at home), or on a ring holder, like this Vera Wang Duchesse Ring Holder ($45). Also, we cannot stress enough that you should insure your ring as soon as you receive it.
While some job counselors even suggest removing your ring for job interviews, which I find absurd, the only times you should really remove it is when the activity poses a threat to the diamond, setting or band. I wouldn’t remove it any other time than the ones listed in the slideshow.
