    Since it’s a cocktail type ring I would wear it when the occasion/outfit fits. So not every day, but it also wouldn’t matter who I was around either. If it fit my outfit I’d wear it.

    Why don’t you just wear it and not lie about it?  It’s nobody’s business but your own. 

    There came a time in my life, not too long ago, when I realized that nobody else’s opinion matters more  to me than my own opinion does.  That was a very liberating moment!!  Try it.  😉

    If you don’t feel comfortable wearing it all of the time; I would wear it on special occasions or when you go out on dates with your Darling Husband.

    Wear it and don’t lie about it. No one else’s opinion matters and no matter what you do, someone will criticize you for it.  Do what makes you happy!

    My husband just recently bought me an upgraded wedding set and a peridot and diamond RHR within weeks of each other. I wear them proudly and don’t care what others think!

    I wouldn’t hide a gift from your Darling Husband because there are people who would be jealous.  You will always have jealous people out there, you can’t control it.  I think you should be able to enjoy your gifts still.

    @mypinkshoes:  Agree we need a picture!

    And I personally wouldn’t wear any cocktail ring all the time, I would wear it for special occasions that warrent being more dressy. You have nothing to be ashamed of! Wear it with pride and if anyone asks I would give your hubby the credit for buying you a sweet wedding present.

    WEAR IT! Seriously. Who cares what they think? Yeah, you’re an incredibly lucky lady that you are well off. Doesn’t mean you have to hide who you are and what you have for the sake of their lives. If you bought a Porsche would you park it 3 blocks from their house and walk therest of the way simply to spare their feelings? No. If they can’t deal with the fact that you’re just in a different place than they are then they have some serious growing up to do.

    By The Way,flaunting would really only be if you shook the 2nd ring in their faces and bragged about how lucky you were or used conversations as excuses to talk about all your rings. Simply owning and enjoying your own property doesn’t consistute flaunting and you shouldn’t have to lie about a single thing. If anything, as your friends, they should simply be happy for you.

    Enjoy the ring and wear it when you want to 🙂 It’s none of anybody’s business!

    I was wearing a stand in ring for my DH’s family and work so it would not look too showy. Apparently, they were still talking behind my back. I would not take into consideration someone else’s financial situation. They make their choices in life, you make yours.

    Please post a pic 🙂

    I’d wear it all the time as a right hand ring and wouldn’t lie about it. It was a sweet gift from your Darling Husband and you should be proud of it!
