No, you do not need to take them off when you go to the bathroom, as long as you are certain they will not be contaminated with any najasah, and you keep them away from any impurity, or from you touching it without wudhu. 

Otherwise, you can take them off. 

Another suggestion would be to paint a layer of clear-colour nail polish.

And Allah knows best

Wearing Aqeeq is recommended according to authentic Hadeeths. It is not Shirk at all to wear Aqeeq because we never think that the Aqeeq is partner of Allah in any way. Allah kept certain benefits in certain things in His creatures. Benefits of wearing Aqeeq is a gift from Allah.

Wassalam.

It is Makrouh (Disliked) to wear any ring in the index finger or the middle finger. Many Hadeeths mentioned that wearing rings in the index or middle fingers was a practice of the non believers who were been punished like the community of prophets Noah and Lut who disobeyed them.

Rings are highly recommended to be worn in the small finger and ring finger.

We have many narrations encouraging wearing ring, any ring except golden ring for me because it is forbidden for men to wear gold as well as pure silk. We also have many narrations to wear Aqeeq Yamani (Onyx) and Pharozaj and other precious stones.

You can find many of these Hadeeths in Wasaa'il Al-Shia, Hadeeth number 5980 and 5983, 5991, and 5993, and 5996 and many others.

There are many Hadeeths from the Prophet (SAWA) and Ahlul Bayt (AS) mentioning benefits of wearing Aqeeq e.g. the Prophetic Hadeeth: Wear Aqeeq ring,  as it removes poverty. 

Another Hadeeth says: Wear Aqeeq rung, as it protects you from depression and sadness.
A Muslim complained to the Prophet (SAWA) that he was robbed. The Prophet replied him: Did you wear Aqeeq? It protects from every evil.

Hadeeths stated that the Reward of prayers is multiplied seventy times or more if you pray wearing Aqeeq ring or even any ring.

I have read about the positive benefits of black aqiq stone, but not from our Islamic heritage. As far as the highly recommended and very mustahab stone that should be worn, it is the red aqiq. They usually refer to this 'red aqiq' as a aqiq kabadi, which means liver colour aqiq. 

That would be the best ring to get, with this specific colour. 

With prayers for your success.

Yes, it is permissible to keep on wearing an amulet, talisman, stone, etc. If the verses, Divine Names, or names of Ma'sumeen (a.s.) appear on the outside, then you should avoid touching it. Or, you are able to laminate it, or cover it with clear coloured nail polish, to avoid accidentally touching it. 

Yes, you can also read more than seven verses. the only verses you must not read are the verses that have a wajib sajdah. 

These verses are in Surah Fussilat, Najm, Sajdah and 'Alaq.

This is all going to be circumstantial, because a female could be wearing a ring, and it could be attracting the gaze of the non-mahram, and it could not. 

The outer hijab of a woman is covering up herself, with the exemption of her face, and her hands up to her wrist. Everything else should be covered. 

If she is wearing any jewellery, and that jewellery is on top of her hijab clothing, or on her hand, like a ring, then it could be either halal to show, or haram. 

It would depend on whether the piece of jewellery is attracting the gaze of a non-mahram, or resulting in lustful looks, or solely considered as 'zeenah'. In this case it would be haram for her to reveal. 

If a woman is wearing a necklace on top of her hijab, or a brooch, a ring, a bracelet, etc, and it is not attracting the gaze of a non-mahram man, then she can wear it. 

A woman might not be intending it to bring notice of a non-mahram, but it would still be considered haram if it is bringing notice, as it would be considered as zeenah. 

And Allah knows best.

Thank you for your question. There is a tradition to that effect. You can wear the ring on your pinky or your ring finger on the other hand.
