@Duncan:  Well yeah. Everyone has different tastes. I see some people’s dresses, shoes, rings, whatever and it’s totally not anything I would ever get. If they are asking if the dress is flattering, I can comment on that regardless of my feeling on the style. If they are just like “oh… look at my pretty things!” I just don’t comment. No point.

 I’m a magpie; if it sparkles then chances are good that I’ll like it.

@Flanders:  Haha I like to call myself an octopus; I am acquisitive.

BUT I am a really picky octopus, and I certainly don’t like a lot of the rings other people seem to gravitate toward. All that matters is that the wearer likes it, anyway.

Nope you’re not the only one. It seems to me that my taste is quite diffrent from the majority of the Bee, for instance I’m not a big fan of halos, ruffles, or tulle. Sometimes I”ll see a ruffled dress and go ‘oh, I can see why she likes it’ even though it’s not my taste other times I’m afraid the dress is going to eat the Bee. I just don’t say anything when I don’t like something usless I’ve got something constructive to say.

If someone asks, “so what do you think about blah blah blah?”, then it seems perfectly fine to me to give an honest opinion. 

However, if the question isn’t there & one just implies you’ll agree with how beautiful it is, then I say keep it to yourself.

I tend to think that I can recognize something as being very nice, but also recognize it as completely, absolutely nothing I would ever want for myself. I’ve always been that way with friend’s fashion and whatnot, it just translates the same here.

I don’t usually comment if I don’t like it. Why rain on someone’s parade? But if they are genuinely asking, like “tell me what you honestly think of this..” then I will be honest.

I think everyone does this, I certainly do. And not just with rings. We all have different tastes but it’s fine as long as nobody is making comments like that. Like the saying goes – if you have nothing nice to say, keep it to yourself.

@Pinkmoon:  +1 

While being on the boards has certainly broadened my taste as far as jewelry is concerned, there are still rings/styles/etc. that I just do not like. In those instances, I x out of the thread, or (if the poster loves her ring) just post congrats.

There are a lot of ring styles I do not feel attractive in the slightest. If other women do, that’s cool, but I find them horrendous.

All the time. I usually can’t bring myself to lie so I simply say nothing. That is nothing compared to some of the wedding dresses I see. I mean every woman looks lovely in her wedding dress but sometimes I think if I see one more sleeveless “mummy wrap” Mermaid dress I will puke.

@trueblue14:  LOL I call them lace/tulle-wrapped full body casts. I have grown to despise this look.
