Why was it off your finger in the first place? You should have been trying bands on not her. Why didn’t you just ask for it back?

Judging by the title, I thought you were going to say that the jeweller had your ring in his/her possession and wore it out somewhere without your permission.

In the store, she was probably just trying to help you to see what the set would look like from a distance.

You are overreacting.  Let it go.

I dont think I would like that either. The only thing I can think of is to show you what others see on your hand. To show you a different perspective so you could picture the band with the ering. Looking at your ring on someone elses hand can help you visualize it. My friends and I try on eachothers but that is different I wouldnt want a stranger to just put it on.

No I haven’t had this experience because I would’ve asked for my ring back… I’m confused why you let it go on if you were physically cringing..

Also, if you were so unimpressed by her having your ring on.. Why did you take it off your own finger to begin with?

Maybe the jeweler was trying to get the perspective on how you would look at the set vs how others would see your set.  I don’t think this is a big deal.

bananacar:  i thought this person either walked out of the store/went out with it on, or you were upset because he/she put it on your finger instead of your FI.

now that i read your post (and not just the title): i think you’re overreacting. like PPs said–she was likely trying to show you what it looks like with the bands you were picking out, and give you an outside perspective. if it was making you so upset, why didn’t you get your ring back after the first time she did it? 

what’s done is done. next time you go to try on bands (as i assume you didn’t get one there?), leave your ring on your own hand and if the sales rep tries to get you to take it off like the one at kay did, just tell her that you’d prefer to try the bands on your own hand.

bananacar:  From the way you have said things transpired I don’t think this is even an issue. I’m sure she was just trying to be helpful. She probably doesn’t think much of throwing a ring on her finger becasue she’s surrounded by a million rings in the store and men have the women who work there do this all the time.

It’s a little odd, but not offensive. Yes, you’re overreacting.

I mean, I’ve let my best friends try on my ring before. It’s not like it’s so sacred it can’t touch another person’s finger.

I wouldn’t like that at all!!  I don’t think you’re overreacting.  I don’t like anyone trying on my ring, and no one has.

Sometimes, I can’t help but laugh a little when I see the things that women let upset them.

It’s no big deal, OP. Men probably ask her to do this all the time when shopping for their SO’s.

I agree that I would find it a bit odd, as I would want to try on the bands and ering together on my own finger, but I wouldn’t get worked up over it.

What is this weird obsession people have here with others trying on their ring? It’s just a ring, not a diaphragm.

She was just trying to help you. Next time, you wear it and you try on the bands with it.
