Eeeee! I’m SO EXCITED! After months and months of lurking and then posting, I finall ordered my 5 year anniversay ring! I guess I waited too late because it looks like there’s no way it can get here by next week, and then we’re going to visit ILs for a week, and I really wanted to have it then, but oh well.
So here’s my question. Will anyone IRL notice I have a new ring? We are so into rings here on the Bee, but it doesn’t seem to be that way at all IRL where I am. A coworker of mine has worn a fancy yellow halo for the last year (no wedding band). Then a few weeks ago I saw a plain solitaire on her hand and immediately asked about it. She said the halo was a mother’s day gift, and she just likes it better than her actual wedding ring. Which got me thinking.
What should I expect when I have a completely different ring on my finger? Will I be explaining about the new ring, or will nobody notice or care? Just wondering your thoughts.

@GeorgiaBride5: I feel like normal people would do that, but I don’t like the spot light on me. I kind of blend into a group if ya know what I mean.

Idk, some people are just oblivious to things. But your new ring is very similar to the original so if it were me, I’m not sure if I’d notice it.

Unless you actively show it off or mention it, I doubt anybody will notice or care.

I think people will notice but wont say anything. The new stone is over twice the size 🙂 . They will just think upgrade or their eyes are going batty.

unless i saw a particular ring on someone all the time, i probably wouldn’t remember what their ring looked like.
if my friend who i only see every few months started wearing a new ring, i don’t think i would remember what her old ring looked like.

I wear different rings all the time and only a few people ever seem to notice.

Thanks ladies! It is very important to me, but it sounds like it won’t be a big deal to anyone else, which is perfect for me!
I will post pics as soon as I get it!

im an idiot and i voted wrong.
i thought the first picture was of the old ring and the 2nd picture of the new ring.
and i couldn’t tell the difference and was very confused! haha
i think some people will notice and im sure if they’re close to you they’d ask about it, but most people won’t say anything

Since the style of the 2 rings are very similar it might take people a little longer to notice. I think they might notice the size difference in the center stone but only if they know your ring really well.

@ceebree: I would notice on someone else at work but as you said, it’s probably beause of the bee, lol. I doubt even my friends would notice in real life, unless the new ring was REALLY out there. Congrats and can’t wait to see it when it arrives!

when i got engaged no one noticed, granted i work with a bunch of men, but it’s a small office. no one noticed – i showed the only girl here (the office manager) which sparked the comments.
Honestly, the 2 rings are so similar that unless someone is really observant, they’re not going to notice. It doesn’t look like a completely new ring, just a bigger centre stone – which i probably wouldn’t notice

I’ll be the bearer of bad news and tell you that I would notice the difference. But then again, I have a thing for rings and always notice them. I’m big on guessing the size (to myself).
It won’t bring a lot of attention unless you are around people like me – or work closely with someone who might notice.
I can’t wait to see the pictures!!

Unfortunately (or fortunately), wouldn’t expect it as common to be observant to such details or care enough to remember rings. I think there might be some that appreciate jewelry, or know you well enough to notice. Even if they did, they may not mention anything depending on the relationship. I have switched my rings with no comments, and preferred it that way! Excited for you and good luck waiting/anticipating!!
