In case you missed it, yes, there are times when you should take off your engagement ring. We know, we know—you don't want to. It's so pretty! But sometimes it's a good idea to take off your wedding ring or engagement for certain reasons. 

To help you keep your ring safe, we've answered some of your frequently asked questions concerning when to take off your precious baubles. After getting all your answers, you'll find a list of our favorite ring dishes that will help you keep track of your wedding and engagement rings when you're not wearing them. 

Should you wear your engagement ring all the time? Of course you don't want to take off your rings, but there are some occasions when it's best to set them aside in an engagement and wedding ring dish for safekeeping. Place them in a ring dish when you head to the gym, clean the house and do your makeup routine. This will keep them safe from any dings or scratches. Plus, it will also prevent them from being exposed to chemicals or gunk from household cleaners, makeup and lotion. 

Should you take your engagement ring off to wash your hands? It's not necessary to take off your ring when you wash your hands. As long as you use gentle soap, it won't harm or damage your ring in any way. Also, it's not worth risking losing it down the drain if you take it off every time you wash your hands. 

Should you take off your engagement ring when you travel? Whether you decide to take your ring off when you travel is a personal preference. If you are worried about theft, perhaps it's better to keep it in an engagement ring dish at home or locked in a safe at your hotel. The same holds true if you have plans to do a lot of sporty activities, such as swimming or going to the pool, which could potentially damage your ring. 

With some of your ring questions answered, now it's time to find the perfect engagement and wedding ring dish. Check out our list of 8 amazing wedding and engagement ring dishes that are sure to keep your baubles safe and sound.
