It could either be because she finds it very pretty, or because she’s competitively comparing yours to hers.  Her body language and tone should let you know which it is.

It sounds like maybe she likes your ring better than her own. Or your ring is just that gorgeous that she can’t get enough of it ๐Ÿ™‚

Hmm…maybe she just really likes it!  I am always gawking at other people’s rings even though I absolutely love my own.  I’d feel awkward asking to see someone else’s more than once or twice, though….but if I had the chance, I would probably stare, haha!  I’m a sucker for sparkle.  ๐Ÿ™‚

It kind of sounds like you might be the one who has an attitude towards her. Really 2 seconds after she’s happily telling her engagement story you shove your ring in her face pretty much shouting me too.  You then look down your nose at her dainty ring in your mind declaring yours better. You obviously think her proposal was second rate. So the girl wants to see your rings and that makes her jealous? Maybe she just likes diamonds and thinks yours is fabulous. I have a coworker who has a ring I adore. I am not jealous, I love my ring but every time I see her I ask how her diamond is doing and she laughs and shows me.  Cut the girl some slack. Be flattered she admires your ring.  There’s room enough in the office for two newlyweds!!!  Oh and were gonna need some pics of your jealous worthy ring!!!

My fiance took me on a romantic helicopter tour with snowshoeing on a frozen lake inbetween some mountains, and champagne and chocolates……… and her fiance woke her up at 7am and proposed to her while they were staying at her parents house.

I really wonder about that paragraph above. It sounds a little… hmmmm. Anyone else sense what I’m sensing?

@TrixieKix:  Honestly, maybe she “shunned you” and became “weird” towards you because she could sense your judgment over her proposal and ring. I would probably feel insecure if a co-worker came off as condescending as you have in this post towards me, too. I’ll give you the benefit of the doubt & assume you don’t act as judgmental towards her as you seem in this post, but you might want to reflect on your own self before insisting that she’s jealous of you or just “weird”.

ETA: I say this because if I read someone saying word for word about me what you’ve said here, I’d be very hurt & offended. My proposal was not champagne & chocolates because that is not me at all & I would hate a proposal like that. Also, I love big sparkly rings & admire my friends’ all the time, but I’m not jealous, I just appreciate beautiful things.
