I’d say that’s pretty normal. Other than family members and close friends, I haven’t received random compliments. It usually only happens when someone first finds out we got engaged. Then they want to see the ring and give a compliment. Otherwise, I don’t think people really notice others’ rings.

There was a post on exactly on this topic a few weeks ago, and from what I remember most answers pointed to the fact that for the most part people don’t often hear compliments on their rings. But that actually makes sense to me, I often catch myself checking out and may be admiring people’s jewelry but I rarely comment on it…

I’ve had my ring a year and I  get compliments pretty much weekly.  I attribute it to the fact that I’m an optician and often have my hands near peoples face taking measurements and adjusting their glasses.  Also, the lighting at my work is ideal for sparkle so she really puts on a show.

I still get compliments on my ring and I’ve been wearing it for 4+ years now. I get them at the the grocery store, dentist, doctor’s office, hair salon etc. mostly when my hand is highly visible like when I’m paying. I think it’s just because my ring is very unique. ๐Ÿ™‚

I think most people tend to not say anything even if they are admiring someone’s ring.  I will quietly admire someone’s ring if it catches my eye.  I do have people complimenting me on my ring from time to time. At my physio appointment last week, one of the female physiotherapists looked at my hand and said, “Wow!” and swooned.  LOL.  And when I dropped my daughter off at school this morning, I noticed one of the moms kept looking at my rings. I think it really depends on the situation if someone will say something or not.

It depends. I get compliments on mine mostly online or if I am in a place and the diamonds are flashing a lot. I tend to compliment others IRL more than they do me. Which is fine. I don’t need to get one back just because I tell another lady her jewellery is pretty.

 I love jewellery so I just love telling people when they have a particularly pretty piece on. I don’t do it daily though. Just when I see something I like a lot. Maybe once a month if that and more often at the doctors or the pharmacy or at a store because people’s hands are more visible to me then. 

For getting compliments from strangers on my own its probably more every 3 to 6 months. Which is okay with me. I didn’t pick my jewellery for people to tell me it was pretty. I picked my wedding ring because I like it even if it’s not completely mainstream looking, and my husband picked my halo design e ring out because HE likes it and that’s all that’s important ๐Ÿ™‚ I think he compliments it more than anyone else. Especially when we go into the hall in our house or out to eat. Sucker is super blingy then lmao.

penny1403 :  I can count all my compliments on one hand.  At first it would bother me but now I have a better understanding why I don’t get any compliments.  Just like myself, other women   admire e-rings and wedding sets from afar.  I too, don’t say anything, just do my private “drooling” ๐Ÿ™‚

Yeah, aside from a few friends or my Mother-In-Law right after I got engaged, I haven’t had any compliments. The only people I don’t know well who have complimented my ring are nail techs, but they’re staring right at my hands for extended periods and I think they also comment to start a conversation.

penny1403 :  Like just random compliments from strangers? I think I’ve gotten maybe a dozen in two years? It always takes me off guard. Other than that, it seems the only people who notice/compliment are women who might be getting engaged soon themselves (so they’re primed to be looking at other’s rings), or when we first got engaged and told people – then everyone asks to see the ring and compliments it. But totally rando comments are rare.

ETA: I have a ceylon sapphire ering, so it seems to be one of those things that people notice more since its different (when they notice at all).

I get lots of compliments on my ring but it’s very different than what you typically see. It’s a large aquamarine surrounded by pave diamonds. 

My other ring is a 1.5ct diamond solitaire and that one doesn’t get nearly as many comments. I think the uniqueness is a big factor.

I get compliments once in a blue moon. I catch people staring but they don’t say anything to me. 

The most recent compliment I got was from the lady ringing me up at the DMV over the weekend when I was renewing my tabs. She said, “I like your ring” in the most monotone voice. ๐Ÿ˜‚ I took it as a nice compliment since she probably really hates being there lol

I don’t compliment people on their rings really. It’s not because it isn’t pretty or I don’t notice, it’s usually because I’m busy and don’t want to run the risk of getting stuck in a conversation with a stranger. If it’s someone I know, I say “oh that’s pretty” and that’s usually it.

I get compliments pretty regularly, but it’s usually when I’m doing something where my hands are visible like paying at a cash register or something. It’s usually just a quick “oh your ring is so sparkly!”. I thank them and that’s the end of the conversation. I compliment people on accessories I like too though so it doesn’t seem odd to me.
