Whether you're a seasoned gym rat or you've been upping your workouts leading up to your wedding day, you might want to consider taking off your engagement ring while you're there. 

During physical activity, rings can get scratched or worse, bent. Metals like platinum and gold are relatively soft. So say you knock it on a dumbbell one too many times — if the ring gets bent enough, you run the risk of knocking your diamond out of its setting. Not only that, but a ring could affect your grip when weight lifting, bruise your fingers or even scratch you.
