    I intend to show everyone when I get engaged, but that’s also because so many people are practically asking me every day when it’s going to happen. So when it does, I’ll be like BAM! But, when I say everyone I mean family, friends, and people in the office. I’m not going to stalk down people at the grocery store to show them or anything.

    I am the same way! I am also really awkward when people compliment it. I feel like a 12 year old girl getting told that I was pretty by my crush or something lol. I’m all like, “Teehee, thank you, teehee!”Embarassed

    I totally only show someone if they ask.  That is what is so fun about this site…so many people ask! 😉  I also don’t know how to react whem people gush IRL. My coworker when I very first started at this job would not stop for literally 3 minutes. : I mean it’s nice for folks to compliment you but it gets awkward after one comment! lol

    I have what would be considered a larger engagement ring with two wedding bands so people notice it…I certainly never purposely try to show it off.

    I don’t mind people looking closely but don’t appreciate when they manhandle my hand and/or my ring. I would NEVER allow someone to try it on…it is not coming off my finger.

    And OP your ring is beautiful!!!

    When someone says something about it, then I definitely show it off, but I don’t bring it up in conversation. 

    I show it off on WB with no shame.

    I don’t show it off but I seriously stare at it a lot, esp when I’m at work.  I’ve had it for three years now, ha!  I lubb my ring!  Wouldn’t upgrade it for anything.

    I have a really nice, sparkly ering and DH gave me a gorgeous, huge cluster ring as a wedding gift but like you, I feel so awkward showing it off. I wear them, but unless someone asks, I don’t go out of my way to be showy about it. I’ve had people ask to see it, and sometimes people will notice it out of the blue (even though I’ve worn it around them repeatedly). I’ve never had anyone ask me to take it off to see it though and no one has ever asked to try it on. I personally would never dream of asking someone to try on their ring. I think that’s kind of rude.

    I saw off my ring more on the bee than in real life.  However there are situations where I do show it off.  For example I don’t see a lot of my close girlfriends often because they live in different counties.  So when I do meet up with one of them I’ll show them the ring because I posted on FB that I finally got it.  However I did not post pics on FB.
