    I wouldn’t say anything – there’s no need to.  

    If anyone mentions it, just say DH bought you a new ring and talk about how much you love it.  No need to explain that the old one was your gma’s, etc…

    EDIT:  I tried to answer your poll, but realized that none of the answers fit.  For my close friends, I’d definitely notice a new ring…. and I’d imagine the conversation would go something like this:  

    “What happened to your ring?”  

    “DH got me this new one, isn’t it pretty”  

    “YES! I love it!!!  That’s wonderful!  He’s so thoughtful”

    I said yes, but I wouldn’t think anything of it with the caveat that I would only notice if it was a really good friend.  Otherwise, I don’t really pay attention to what peoples engagement rings look like 🙂

    I would notice but I’d only say something if it was one of my best friends. I don’t think upgrading later is all that uncommon at all, I can’t imagine most people would say anything.

    I think I would notice with my closest friend – we’ve discussed rings a great deal and hers is pretty unique.  I would also notice with the friends of mine who have non-diamond rings – I’m more observant with those because it’s what I have, plus different colors are more memorable.

    But I am a total airhead when it comes to jewelry.  If someone went from one diamond ring to another, I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t notice at all.

    I would notice and it would make me curious, but not bad curious. More of an excited curious.

    I’m sure I would notice and might comment on how lovely the ring is.

    I probably would not notice unless the old ring was very distinctive and eye-catching. And if someone does, so what?

    I wouldn’t say anything and I don’t really know if people will notice unless your going from like a .5 ct ring to a 4 ct stone (I know someone who did this. You can’t not notice a ring like that).

    Your friends don’t need explaining to and I agree it’s personal. If they ask then I would say the truth, but otherwise leave it as is. DH and I are private people as well and feel people don’t need to know our personal information unless it is something that will influence them directly.
