I work at a boarding school with teenagers and they often ask and try it on, but I’ve known most of these kids for 4+ years, so I know they aren’t going to bolt! 

I would have reacted in the exact same way as you if it were somebody I didn’t know well though. I always find it really annoying when people touch the top of my ring as well – I have a halo type design, and people are always making it filthy with fingerprints haha. Sounds so ridiculous, but it drives me nuts!

Nope – and I think that’s super weird and I also would’ve given her a stunned look or just would have said “no, I don’t take my engagement ring off, sorry”.

The only person who has asked to try on my ring is my mom, and I was happy to oblige, obviously. But if it were anyone but like my mom or my sister, it would be weird.

That is so bizarre! It’s a good thing that you didn’t let her try it on, because if you did I’m pretty sure that I’d be reading an entirely different kind of post right now. I think she was trying to mug you!

yes, but only by close friends and family. my ring is a 4.5 size, so they cant get it onto anything but a pinky anyways. i always let them.

I had a coworker try it on the other day. She asked and before I could process the question I just said sure and handed it over. We’ve been working together for a year, but only a couple hours a week. It was weird, but fine, and I know she is obsessed with my ring. Anyways the following week she asked again, and I figured I couldn’t say no after I had said yes before. This time she complained that she couldn’t fit it over her knuckle (last time she tried it on her pinky) and also took a picture with her phone. The whole thing was weird. But whatever. As long as the picture doesn’t end up on facebook theres no permanent damage.

only my bestest of friends have asked and only two of them I have allowed to try it on…but I guess I would let a co-worker. I think it is weird but it is because they think it is so pretty so it is kind of flattering

 I dont even know what I would say!! The only people who tried mine on was my little sister/MOH and my mom (but I’ve tried on my moms hundreds of times!). I’ve had people grab my hand pretty hard, but I would tell them NO!

my husband will try to put mine on whenever I take it off. Its a little frustrating for him since I’m a size 3 and he’s a size 8, he likes to marvel at how tiny I am. I did let my sister try it on since she got engaged about 6 months after myself, she wanted a princess cut too so she wanted to see how the cut looked on her.

No, but maybe because my rings are so small! =] It would be strange and I would decline. Lol

Yipes, I didn’t realize this was odd. After I got engaged, I gave it to everyone to try on and look at closely. It just feels weird showing them your hand…

@SweetHoneyBee:  Yes an old co-worker I didn’t know well asked me to try it on. When I told her I never take it off because my husband is the one who has to put it back on for me she looked at me like I was crazy.. 

Some people just aren’t sentimental about those things.. she in particular did not have a close bond with her boyfriend and she actually turned out to be a not so nice person so that says a lot. 

It’s like when strange people or people I didn’t care for asked to touch my belly when I was pregnant.. heck some people didn’t even ask and just start touching it UH!
