Your relationship status is none of your new company’s business.  How would they think you were lying about it, unless they came out and asked you directly what your relationship status was?

I wouldn’t worry about it.

I wouldn’t worry about it!  Getting engaged or married is a normal life event and none of their business.  If anyone comments, you can say, oh, we got engaged last week!  Or whatever.  I don’t think it will be an issue.

I wouldn’t worry about it, you’re not obligated to share that kind of information.

Wear the ring and don’t say anything. It is normal to take off an engagement ring for an interview and no one would think anything. If someone asks when you are getting married, you can say “oh, we just got engaged last weekend so we haven’t really started planning, but it will be at least a year so I can save up vacation”.

We have had several girls get engaged between job offer and start date, for us it is normal given who we hire (28-30 year olds) and the length of the process (6 months). I wouldn’t think anything of it.

However, do not make it big deal at all. It will be so hard because you are so excited to be engaged, but try not to talk about it and bring attention to it. Save the gushing for your friends, not for your new coworkers.

I don’t think you should be concerned in the least, but I agree that you should keep your excitement more in-check at the office, as it’s a professional setting. If anyone asks, tell them the truth — that you got engaged just recently.
