I get a decent amount of compliments on my ring. They always make me feel great when I hear them. They come mostly from my clients or service workers (grocery, pharmacy, dentist, restaurant, airport) who are close to my hand for some reason. I can’t think of anyone completely randomly walking down the street stopping me and saying anything. I think my compliments are because of the interesting (and beautiful imo) scrollwork and side diamonds on my ring which is a Verragio setting.

I am 23 years in beauty industry. Nail tech at high end   day spa ( my clients are lawyers, doctor’s wife, career women)  I’ve seen so many beautiful jewelries.  I hardly ever give compliments UNLESS I see A totally unique, vintage( that my taste) or very unique gems or  very special bracelets.   The size of the stones is not the matter to me( I see and seen 2.00-4.00 cts on clients fingers) most of time and all beautiful but I’m so used to seen all that every day.  High quality and huge.  But I’m not  kind of jewelry girl anyway  But now I’m the one who just got e-ring and my clients are so happy for me and lots of compliments but some of them are not because the ring. Because they are so happy for me and most of all my regular clients I’m talking about)    But some clients are so shock how much shine and fires they see on my stone ( 🙄maybe the water makes extra sparkle too😂)

One client asked me  few days ago. 

“ my diamond is 2.03 but yours are bigger than mine?! What is the total ct is yours ?!” 😅.  She is my regular and I know her personality so I didn’t mind tell her.

 She could not believe it was only 1.13 ct ( but it’s JA and XXX)  looks like 1.25 Ct and sparks single halo.  And CT is not the size of the look. It’s weights of the stone.  Right?!

   I gets compliments at jewelry stores ( when I needed resize) and cleaning etc some time go stores to check out wedding band and watch idea window shopping.  Some brand name jewelry store people ask if this ring is HOF brandand some other name brand that I don’t even know. they know I didn’t buy it at there store. They always ask me what/ where did I got my e-ring. 😊

  but most importantly my fiancé and I love our e-ring. That’s the only matter at bottom line. I think.

and stranger women don’t give a compliment that often to other women’s rings I think. 

Maybe secret envy admirers😊. 

So no worry if you don’t gets compliments because if you love your special ring that’s the most important!

and some one always out there has  better and beautiful diamond rings than me.  😊

It’s funny because I have a smaller ring compared to a lot of women on here (it’s about half a carat solitaire) and while I loved it immediately I didn’t expect to get complimented a lot just because it’s not a giant halo or something flashier. However, I went through a drive thru coffee place my first day back at work (and first time in public since the proposal) and when I reached out to grab my drink the barista immediately complimented how sparkly my ring was, it was exciting especially because I got to be like “He just proposed!!! AHH” hahah. But other than that, I don’t get a whole lot of compliments. When I was working in a nursing home the women there would compliment it when I was taking vitals and the men would ask if I was engaged, but they would usually watch my hands while I was taking blood pressure and stuff so otherwise they might not have noticed.

I’ve only had a random stranger comment on my rings once and Tbh it made me really uncomfortable. When i was engaged and planning my wedding from my friends I mostly the same comment of “that’s actually a really nice ring” which I think was because I posted a picture on facebook, but the picture during the annoucing period but it wasn’t the best picture and my ring looks much better in person.

penny1403 :  I get compliments on my ring sometimes. I also notice people noticing it but not saying anything. It’s pretty rare though. I just don’t think people pay attention. I never used to until I got married but I’m obsessed with rings 😂 No one else I know is as obsessed as I am haha.

I get an occasional compliment on my ring, but it’s always based around ‘oh I’ve never seen a black diamond before!’ So I assume it’s just odd enough to stand out to some people and that’s the only reason I receive some compliments. 

 

I literally never notice other people’s rings though.

penny1403 :  I sometimes get compliments about my ring. It’s an amethyst and I love it. I had one male friend to tell me that my FH needed to buy me a larger stone but others compliments were very nice.

My ring is very sparkly, so I get a lot of compliments outside, but it’s almost always from people I know, and not from strangers.

AutumnFlower :  I’d like to see your ring! It sounds very unique! Were you or the Fiance born in February, or do you just like Amethyst?

I get a lot of compliments, which I think is because it’s unusual to see a yellow gold halo setting. 

I am ring obsessed and look at people’s rings constantly!

I notice a lot of people looking at my ring but not saying anything outright. 

I do get compliments on it sometimes. I’d say I get several compliments per month. The compliments are always from married women or women who are in a serious relationship/might be getting engaged soon. Every time I get a compliment I feel really great, haha. People compliment my ring’s sparkle and fire, and I love it. It also almost always leads to a conversation about my fiance, how he proposed, etc., so it feels really nice. 

 

This seems normal to me because I look at others’ rings but almost never say anything, even if I think the ring is really beautiful! If you don’t hear compliments, it might be because people don’t say it out loud. 

 

Maybe I should compliment others’ rings more!
