I still havent put pictures of my ring on my facebook. Some friends have asked me to, but I’ve seen tons of Bee’s saying that its rude or something to put pictures of the ring on FB.
Can I ask why you feel that way? It doesnt seem rude to me, but I just want to hear others opinions before I upload pictures to it.

I have friends in other states that were dying to see my ring…I posted heaps LOL
why is it rude?
I am so proud of my Fiance & the ring he designed, I don’t think there is anything wrong with showing it off just a little. Oh and when I changed my status to “engaged” I think the first response was,” RING PICTURE PLEASE”….

I never posted pics of my ering on FB, but i certainly dont think its rude for people who have done it. I have emailed it to Friends who have requested to see it. Im not comfortable posting it on FB in yet i love posting it here! I feel comfortable posting here, i guess because its nice to know there are other bees obsessed with rings like me! LOL

I haven’t posted pics of my e-ring (except our engagement photos when I was wearing the ring, but no just ring photos) but I don’t think it’s rude at all!

I was hesitant, but in the end, I did it. I think there may have been a small stigma in the beginning of facebook, but now it’s the norm. Besides, people are so vuyeristic, they want to see what your ring looks like, even if it is in bad taste.

I don’t think it is rude, I just think that it depends on the person and how they do it! I am a private person, and so don’t tend to post those things on facebook. I love my ring, but I don’t think it is the point of the engagement, and I think anyone who really wants to see it likely will in person at some point, or through private email… it doesn’t need to be publicly proclaimed- the status change is enough :)…but I honestly don’t care when other people do and I will look at their rings. So I think it is personal preference. So I voted “other”

I don’t think it’s rude, though I never posted a photo of mine on facebook. Like @FoolsintheRain said, rings can be a personal item. I never felt that I needed to show my ring off to anyone, and I don’t think there’s anyone I’ve actually tried to show it to unless they asked first, in which case they usually get texted a picture.

I don’t mind if others do it because I like looking at rings! I didn’t post one of FB though. I do have a far away photo of my hand with a ring on it but you can’t see the details or even tell what the setting is. I didn’t want a close-up or ring focused photo because I personally don’t feel comfortable. To some, my ring is huge and to some it’s average. To those who think it is huge, I don’t want to come off as showing off an expensive piece of jewelry.

I don’t think it’s rude but I do think it’s tacky. Just seems braggy to me. Why not email it to friends or family who ask. I tend not to share much on fb beyond pics of my dog and funny links, so it is my own preference. I am not a ‘things’ kind of person.

Not rude, but a bit crass. On WB – fair enough, I mean we all love a bit of ring porn, but I think it’s really showy-off on FB, and also dare I say a bit dangerous. depending on your privacy settings, and how well you know your FB friends, you could be putting yourself in a dangerous situation (robbery or mugging). A man I work with who is ALWAYS updating where he is – each bar, restaurant, even supermarket he goes to, recently had his house ransacked, and I can’t help to think on an island where break-ins are virtually unheard of, that the constant promotion of his “busy social life” led to this.

I voted other because I think that while it’s not rude it can ruin some of the fun of showing it in person. Especially since the pics almost never do justice. Plus I’d hate to have my wedding shower and NO ONE ask to see it because they already know what it looks like! LOL I wanted more people to admire my ring in person so when I posted FB pics I set it so that only my mother who lives in Maryland and sister who lives in Texas (GA girl here!) could see it because they were dying and I wanted to share my joy and surprise with them immediately. But other than that I wanted to be excited with everyone face to face so we could talk and I could tell the story of how when he gave it to me etc. So I think it depends on the person.

It does seem a little like bragging, just because you are posting pictures of an expenaive piece of jewelry that you have. I love seeing ring pocs here, but on FB (aka real life) it just seems different.

- Wedding: June 2013 - Country Club
I live six hours away from my friends and family, so I just posted a picture on Facebook. I don’t know a majority of their emails (because really, I can just message them on FB or write on their wall if I need to tell them something). I never thought of it as “rude, crass, bragging” or any other term like that. I was excited and I wanted other people to join in my excitement with me.
Honestly, everyone I know who has recently gotten engaged has posted a picture of the ring on facebook. I love seeing all the rings.

@allyfally: I voted no, I do not think that it is rude to post your ring on facebook…. your ring – your decision…. if someone on your page doesn’t want to see it or comment on it —- then they don’t have to… Someone will always have an opinion as to what they think about something….but you can’t worry about what everyone else think…. I say post it — if that is what you want to do…. congrats!!! very exciting times!!!!

Definitely not rude! You’re excited about it and excited to show it off! I was in st Lucia at the time and it was fun to post it on fb for everyone to see the news! People are going to think what they want anyway so do what you want! Like pp said, if you don’t want to look at it or comment on it then don’t. Simple as that!:)
