Re: How often do you wear your ring?

I wear my wedding set, plus anniversary ring stacked, pretty much 24/7. However, my rings get a bath when I jump in the shower. So, when I get washed, my rings get washed too. They are soaked in commercial jewelry cleaner and scrubbed with mini brush. I even wear them in the gym, I do worry that I'l...

Re: Are you faithful when you dream?

No I am not faithful when I dream, and I wake up feeling super guilty. They odd thing is that I have dreams about doing stuff with people I'm not even attracted to, at least not consciously attracted to.

Re: Largest ct size for daily wear?

I wear a 1.8 ct RB solitaire, and feel that this is perfect for daily wear. I never feel self conscious about its size, because it is the norm in my social circle to have between a 1-2 carat. I also have it set fairly low, so I never knock it into anything. I'm not the type of person who likes to st...

Re: My ring get so tight during the summer ...

I have big knuckles, so my rings are sized 5.25 or 5.5 to accommodate my knuckle size. The bottom part of my fingers are <5, so though my fingers my swell a little in the summer, my rings just go from super loose, to fitting perfectly. As long as I don't take them on and off too often to clean etc, ...

Re: Couples, Sex, and Sexless Marriage/Relationships

Re: How do you feel about what you do for a living?

I'm ambivalent about my job. I work for a global company in the food and beverage industry. Some days I feel like just another cog in the wheel, other days I feel I contributed a ton to the expansion of the brand. Mostly the work is just so so, but I like the employee perks, so I gave it a 7.

Re: New to PS with 2 gorgeous OEC rings from JbG and CvB!

Welcome! Both your rings are beautiful. I have been bitten by the Old Cut bug as well....still shopping though.

Do you alternate and wear each by itself, or is one of these a "e-ring" the other a Right-hand ring?
