I lie and say all the same things I would if I thought it was beautiful.  Same goes for ugly babies, bad haircuts, and questionable outfits.  If it were a sibling or extremely close friend I might say something about the clothes or hair, but never ever about the other two  – not even to my own twin.

Or, if you wanna avoid lying, you can just smile and say something like “You’re gonna be a beautiful bride” or “How did he propose” or something? Just avoid describing the ring at all.

i would lie through my teeth!

 

I figured out on labor and delivery  when parents picked questionable names for their kids the best response when I am really suprised is just to say “how unique! who came up with that?!” and I think something similar works for strange E rings- “how unique! did you pick it our did he? its so sparkly”

I lie, and tell them it’s beautiful.

I know my taste is pretty different then most. I’m into not into modern, so this happens quite offten.

“If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all,” is the first thing that runs through my head!

I wouldn’t lie, but I wouldn’t tell them that I didn’t like it (they obviously do!).  I agree with erinleigh1.  I’d ask them for details on the date they’re getting married, how he proposed, wedding colors, etc.

Definately either lie – “it’s lovely” or avert with something like “you must be so excited” or “I’m so happy for you”  My mother barely reacted to my ring and it really hurt my feelings, so I would never do that do someone else.  Even if someone’s ring isn’t beautiful to me, it’s beautiful to them and has great meaning to them – looked at it that way, every ring is beautiful in it’s own way, even if it’s not to one’s taste :o)

@Cappugcino: That’s a great way of putting it. “Even if someone’s ring isn’t beautiful to me, it’s beautiful to them and has great meaning to them – looked at it that way, every ring is beautiful in it’s own way, even if it’s not to one’s taste :o)”

I always say SOMETHING when someone shows me her ring. If I don’t like it I’ll lie. It really doesn’t matter what I think, just what she thinks. I once had someone ask to see my ring, look at it and say absolutely nothing. It was very awkward. I understand that my sapphire e-ring is different than many people’s idea of what an e-ring should be, but at least acknowledge it!
