Do any other recently engaged bees find themselves staring at other women’s engagement rings? It’s like all I can look at when I look at someone now. We recently ordered my ring (YAY) and I am worse than a kid awaiting its arrival, but now that it’s on its way, all I can do is look at other designs. The great part is every time I see one I think “ooh that’s gorgeous, buuuut I still love the one I picked out more”. Do other bees find themselves doing this? 🙂

Ever since I got my ring (more than a year ago!) I can’t stop checking out other girls rings. They’re all just so pretty! I still love mine best though, lol.

I still do it and I’ve been engaged for over a year.

I’m married, and I still check out jewelry websites to see what’s out there, and other women’s hands to see what kind of merchandise they’re peddling. I get ring envy every once in a while.

I’m married, I picked out my ring, and still look at other people’s rings, as well as rings in jewelry stores and magazines.

Don’t feel strange. it’s kind of like when you get a new car or are looking for one, and you suddenly notice all the cars that are like the one you got or are interested in. Before you were interested in that car, you barely noticed how many were on the road. Get my drift?

I’ve always noticed jewelry others are wearing, before I even had my first boyfriend at 16 and even now after I’m married. I love checking out what people have and admiring pieces that are pretty/unique/fun. It’s a hobby I say! 😉 I don’t ever see myself stopping by the way.

Totally normal. I am married now, have had my ring on my finger since 2009 never stop looking at it and LOVE looking at others. Whether it’s on other women, jewllery stores or websites. I’m obsessed. I also clean my ring way too much. It never looks gloomy and people always tell me how bright white and sparkly it is. 🙂

I love looking at other rings. But I’ve honestly never experienced ring envy. I look at sites that sell rings all the time, too. DH got a little annoyed at me the other day when I was looking at rings trying to find a band to go with a ring that someone posted here. He doesn’t understand my fascination with rings since I have one I love.
