    @aicila:  I’ve talked to my close friends about it, especially since two of them were getting engaged at the time and asked about my ring (I have a moissy center).  However, I haven’t had any strangers or casual acquaintences ask about the cost.  It seems a bit rude and nosey of your co-worker.

    I don’t tell people, I think partially because I don’t want to be judged or FI to be judged, whether it’s good or bad.  I think it’s rude that people ask.  It’s not of their business.  People like to compare themselves to others, and I think that shows insecurity.  Good job on changing the subject.  I would do the same.

    As a “mature Southern lady” I would be quite uncomfortable telling anyone the cost of my engagement ring.  My BFF/MoH doesn’t even know; she has the maturity to know not to ask!

    I have been flat out asked by strangers how much my ring cost a couple of times. It has always caught me of guard, and I just say “I don’t know, it’s my engagement ring.” 

    I would only consider telling my best friend or mom and sisters, although they would never ask!

    @aicila:  The only thing some people ask is how big is it? Many times I change the subject but I will answer my close friends and sisters (usually).

    @housebee:  Yea, I agree. It is really rude. I don’t understand why people would think that’s ok.

    @aicila:  that’s seems like a weird question to ask.  She seems nosy, what does it matter?  People have offered up the cost of their e-rings before, but I would never come out and ask and it’s pretty uncomfortable when people do bring up their own costs.  I would have handled it exactly the way you did.

    People have asked, and I don’t answer – I change the subject and ramble on about something else.   My lovely ring is an heirloom and the value cannot be measured in dollars.

    Not normal – that’s rude!  I file it in the same category of heinous behaviour as asking how much money someone makes.

    If my mom/aunts were to ask, I may tell them, but not anyone else.

    No.   And I agree, it’s like asking how much money someone makes at their job.  

    I didn’t even ask FI how much he paid for it.

    @aicila: At least some especially rude ones are! It’s pretty shocking when someone asks something like that.
