I act the same way if I don’t like the ring.  I will try to be nice and maybe say it’s pretty but I won’t be like OMG ITS GORGEOUS I LURRRRRVEEEEE ITTTTTTTT!!!!!!!  Honestly, I wouldn’t care if people don’t gush about my rings.  I love them and that’s what matters!

I lie. Sometimes– it is just nicer. If I don’t like the ring I will still say something like “awwwww that is SO pretty! congrats!” 

If I do like it I’ll be like OMG YOUR MAN DID GOOD how FANTASTIC! heh

Ditto.  No matter how gaudy and hideous I think the ring is (I prefer super simple jewelry) my response is always “OMG ITS AMAZING!!!!!”  Extra points if you ask to try it on.

I’m with @corgi and @peanut– Even if I don’t OOOOOHHHH and AWWWWW about a ring, I will still say something like “it’s so pretty!  congratulations!”

I usually just say congratulations.

One of the girls at the hubby’s work got engaged after I did and her ring is about 1/4 the size of mine and a solitaire where mine is that vintage stuff, with a halo (ya-da ya-da) and she spent the whole time saying (in front of the hubby and I) that she trying on plenty of rings like mine but she just wanted something classic.  And not everyone can pull off a big gaudy ring like mine, etc. I have never rubbed in my ring in anyone’s face and it doesn’t help she doesn’t like me. So that was awkward. Not just for me but for everyone standing there!

Wow MissYap. I would have been picturing what that gaudy ring would have looked like when my hand was made into a fist… just kidding. I just don’t believe the nerve people have! I too have a bigger ring than most people I know, and I never say a word about it, either. It makes me uncomfortable when people bring it up!

@peanutlovespumpkin– do you do that?! i would LOVE to try on peoples’ rings but i thought they’d thing i was so weird if i asked! haha. All my girlfriends have tried on mine, I guess… but only one actually asked (and she has been my friend since i was 2). The others all tried it on one night when we were doing manis and i put my ring on the coffee table and they decided we needed a photo shoot with each girl in the group wearing it hehe. (FI thought it was SO weird when my friend put photos of our girls’ night on facebook… including photos of a whole bunch of girls trying on my ring! heh)

This is hilarious it reminds me of the Seinfeld episode with the ugly baby!

Your always expected to ooooh and Ahhhh but what happens if you think the baby’s ugly. LOL

I usually do the “Awe. Congrats” when I don’t particularly like the ring.

I think my most awkward ring moment was when a friend asked what I was hoping J would get me. She’s older and has been married for like 5 or 6 years now, and I’ve never noticed her ring. I told her that I was trying to keep an open mind and let him choose, but I knew I didn’t just want a plain solitaire, and I knew I wanted it to be round because I feel like princess cut solitaires are really trendy right now.

She goes, “Oh, you mean like this?” and whips out her princess cut solitaire (which, in my defense, looked EXACTLY like the princess solitaires like 4 of my other friends have). I was like, “uhhhhhh… yeah. It’s beautiful, but not my style.”

Oops.
