There are plenty of times you should be careful wearing any jewelry (e.g. Using machinery, tools) but I never take my wedding band off...it's easily been more than 20 years since I even took it off to buff it up a bit. Posted via Mobile Device
Well I'm obviously not married, but I do have a purity ring, and I don't ever wear mine to the farm. Why? I've lost one before...and it wasn't even on my hand o.o I'd attached it to a chain around my neck! Its probably still out there somewhere laughing at me to this day :3
I do not wear mine. Never really thought of the danger it is more for the fact that I don't want to get it bent or crushed while doing something. My DH got his hand caught (smashed) with his ring and the ring actually saved his finger because it is a tungsten and will not bend. He was wearing gloves. Never thought of losing a finger, wow.
Thanks for all of the responses. I think... since I am so very accident prone, I am going to start taking mine off to ride. It is a simple smooth ring but hey.... knowing my luck, it will happen ha ha.
I have a small claddagh ring that only comes off for exams and then it goes in the pocket of my hacking jacket or my jodphurs. I wear gloves while I ride so the chances of it getting caught on anything are minimal at best. I wear it while I muck out and all other yard jobs without an issue. It's part of me.
