One of my closest friends asked me, and I told her. I don’t mind if she knows. No one else has asked though, and I would probably tell most other people to shove off anyway!

I swear, weddings bring out the rudest behavior in people.

No one has asked me yet how much my ring cost, but at this point…nothing surprises me!

Yes I’ve had several people ask me, but most were boys.  Not guys who are in the market for an e-ring, but just regular nosey guy friends.  They are also the people who ask how much my jeans, purse, and sunglasses cost so I guess I’m just used to it from these people.  Sigh.. weird..

If someone close to me asks, I tell them. If a random stranger asks, I give them my bitchy stare & walk away… it’s happened to me only once though.

Nobody has ever asked me, and I would never ask anyone else.

My friends and I almost never discuss money. It is just uncomfortable.

I love the comment about replyiing back with “how much do you weigh?”” made me chuckle here at my desk at work.

I have never been asked, but I know my mom would love to know. She would never ask though, I just think she wants to know becasue she loves it and wants one like it.

I would never ask, its very rude. I only have two friends that I discuss money with. Even then, I often start the question with, “I hope you don’t mind me asking, but how much did the new roof on your house cost you? ” or “how much did your bathroom remodel cost?” and she knows its only because we need to do those things too and I’m just making sure the quotes I got aren’t too high (She’s had more experience in home ownership than me). Even then, if someone who didn’t know our relationship would probably be appalled with my questions.

I’ve been asked and asked myself, but only by close girlfriends who we share everything with, and it wasn’t asked in a nosey kindda way. Just in a I’m curious because a) I hope to be engaged soon and I have no clue how much rings are or b) I have no clue how much FI/DH spent on my ring so this will help me figure it out.

*First post!!!* I’m a long-time reader, but new (actually posting) bee! 🙂

I was only seriously asked once, by a close friend who is casually engagement ring shopping with her own boyfriend. She really loved my ring and wanted to know what kind of range she would be looking at for something similar.

Besides that, I think people generally consider it an inappropriate question…

Which is fine, b/c Fiance and I like to keep it private. 🙂

Yea I have been asked that before too… I think it’s totally rude. I just told them I didn’t know as he picked out the ring and he didn’t give me any of the details.

Of course, that’s a total lie… I know exactly how much it cost, but frankly that is nobody’s business except my mine and my FI’s. Ugh. People. Hahaha.

@KristenGotMarried: Oh my goodness, I keeping that one around in case anyone else ever asks me! That’s awesome! Hopefully no one ever does though…

I’ve told close friends and my mom. I only told the friends because they were looking at rings themselves and wanted to know price ranges. I’ve never had someone outright ask how much, but I’d probably be very vague or I’d just say ‘enough’.

I think that is super rude.  Unless you have a “code” with a best friend or something that is off-limits.  I don’t even want to know how much SO spends on the ring, so the “I don’t know” will really work!

I don’t even know.  Fiance would never even tell me how much he paid so why should an outsider know?  That’s my theory. I would say, “I don’t know Captain Buckwheat.”

People can be unpredictable.  I only know how much mine costs because I saw the receipt. hehe.  No one’s every actually asked me, they made comments about how it was probably expensive.  And it was, diamonds will never be “budget friendly”. 

I have a friend who practically advertised how much hers was.  She and her Fiance built one together at Jared’s so she knew all the details.  When she officially got it she would say things like “well after everything he needed to spend this much”.

I would be tempted to answer what my ring appraises for, rather than what he paid… just to knock their socks off.
