Maybe they think it’s rude to speak up? I don’t see why they would, but it’s possible. There are more negative thoughts that come to mind, but I doubt that’s the case.

Like how do you mean sweetness?
Like random people don’t comment on it? Or friends and family don’t say anything?
Rnadom people don’t comment on my ring, my friends and family are usually just like..
“omg prettty!!!!” the girls
“Holy crap thats big” the guys.
Other then that no one says much.

Maybe they don’t want to put you on the spot. I’ve actually felt uncomfortable a few times because of some comments people have made about my ring. Even if no one said anything about my ring, I wouldn’t care because I love it. It really doesn’t matter as long as you love it.

Aww. People never comment on mine either; I’ve been engaged since February and maybe three random people have ever commented on it.

I only ever say “oooh lets see the ring” if someones *just* got engaged and even then I don’t actually care what it looks like it’s just social rules to do that sort of thing.
An engagement ring is subjective, to it’s owner it’s such a beautiful and important thing, but to anyone else it’s just a nice piece of jewelry.
Don’t worry about it, I’m sure people think it’s nice.

Do you mean strangers?
The only time anyone commented on my ring was when we were announcing our engagement (or the first time friends saw us after we got engaged) or at the wedding or subsequent hometown reception. Other than that, it doesn’t really come up.

No one except my mother comments on it. I don’t really care, because I’m not wearing it to show off to people.

I haven’t been engaged for long, but the only people who have commented were friends and family. My fiance mentioned that one of his coworkers was staring at it when we ran into her at a football game a couple of weeks ago, and he thought it was weird that she didn’t say anything about it. I honestly didn’t think it was weird, though … She really doesn’t know me and might have felt awkward saying something to me about it. I know I don’t comment on other people’s rings unless they’re a recently engaged friend or family member (or if it’s on the Bee). I wouldn’t worry about it!

It’s a ring. It’s nothing they haven’t seen before. Not everything requires a comment. I don’t expect people to comment on every new pair of shoes I wear, purse, pants, hair cut… so I don’t expect them to comment on my ring. It only means something to me and my FI, everyone else I know already has one of their own.

Yeah. I think this is another one of those “nobody cares as much as you do about wedding/engagement related item” things.

I only comment on other women’s rings when it’s someone I know or know that they have recently become engaged. But I would never go up to someone I don’t know and comment on her ring. When I was first engaged, I did receive comments from random people, but it was not a regular occurence. The most recent comment (and I was taken aback) was when I went through the DD drive-thru a month or so ago and the teenage boy taking my money said “nice rock,” lol. But no, this doesn’t happen regularly.
Is there a reason you want to have your ring commented on by random people?
