When I got engaged I happily showed off my ring AND let my friends and cousins try it on. The first time my mom saw me do it she freaked out and said I wasn’t suppose to let other people try it on. Its not like these were strangers or anything it was close friends and/or family. I still let people try it on now. Anyone else do that??

I don’t see why it matters. I wouldn’t ask somebody if I could try theirs on though.

no no no!! my best friend let someone else try her ring on at a party and the girl could NOT get the ring off! her finger swelled & after trying everything (ice cubes, running water, oil, peanut butter, windex, elevating her hand) they had to go to the emergency room to get the ring cut off this other’s girl’s finger! the diamonds had to be reset and insurance did NOT cover it. needless to say, her husband was less than thrilled.
unless you completely trust someone else or they have smaller fingers than you, i would never ever let someone else try it on. they can check it out on my hand & that’s it!

I’ve never had anyone ask. . . except my 8 year old. . . and the answer is always no to that. She’s so accident prone. I’d have to think I’d probably say no if someone asked though… or at the very least I’d be kinda weirded out by it.

I chose other. As I’ve noted in other posts, I have 2 engagement rings. One I have no problem letting people try on and another one I would NEVER NEVER EVER!!!

Wow! Next to “when’s the wedding?” “can I try it on?” is the most popular question I get!! (But thinking about it most of the people who have asked are between 18-25. Maybe its an age thing???)

Yep! My sisters have both tried it on, so has my mom, my omi (grandma) and a couple of my friends! I have no problems letting other people put it on for a few minutes!

only my mom, and she only tried it on to try on my wedding band and e-ring at the same time. i wanted to see (again) how they looked together and she told me it was bad luck to try on your wedding ring before the acutal wedding. She had to try them on, on her pinky though because her fingers are bigger than mine.

At first, I thought that it wouldn’t be a problem letting people try my ring on but then reading the horror stories here, like the ring needing to be cut off and the ‘bad luck’. I will now be less willing to let people try it on.
Now saying all of that, I would proably tell the person to go to the store to try on all the different types.
I have never asked anyone if I could try their ring. I have always asked them to show me the ring. I don’t need to see it on me but then again I’m married. Maybe if I wasn’t engaged and I could see why people want to it.

Yup.. As long as I’m close enough to the person that I trust them not to run away with : ) All of my friends have tried on my ring and I have tried on the rings of all of my engaged or married friends. It’s just something we do. It’s fun to try on other people’s rings. I know some people believe it’s bad luck (that you are giving them your fiance if you give them your ring).. but I don’t believe in that kind of thing.

My ring doesn’t come off easily, so unless they’d like to pay to cut it off my finger, nobody will be trying it on.

My mom and a couple of my BFs that’s it!
I wouldn’t let just anyone try it on!
