    the only one who has ever asked is my 22 yo niece.  but everytime i see her she asks to try it on and prances around in it the whole time we’re together.  mind you, she is engaged herself and has her own ring!  she just likes mine better…

    I havent had mine long, but the only people who i have volunteered it to, neither asked, are both our mothers and without any prompting or anything they both put it on their pinkies, despite my mum having the same ring size as me.

    I think thats a courtesy thing, i really wanted to show them and its hard to appreciate when its on my hand!

    I always let anyone who has asked friends/family. One of my good friends is getting married too and i even tested out her wedding band.

    No one has ever asked to try it on. [Depending on the person/circumstance] I really don’t see a reason I would say no.

    I would only let one of my three close friends try it on, but they have never asked. They would have to wear it on their pinkies anyway. My ring size is a puny 4.5.

    I think everyone and their mother (literally) has tried on my ring.  I don’t think it’s a big deal at all.  I’ve had all my friends’ rings on my finger at some point, too.

    I dunno. The only person to ask was a girl I worked with that I HATED, but I let her. Meh. I just dont think it’s a big deal.

    I’ve let my sisters and a few close friends try it on. Not a problem, although I would never let it out of my sight!

    haha i don’t think anyone I know can fit my ring (sz 3 1/4) so no, nobody has tried it on. But if they could fit it…sure, why not?

    Wow, I’m so surprised it’s such a close race!  I never really gave it a 2nd thought to let ppl wear my ring, and I’ve def been guilty of trying on someone else’s.

    Nobody has ever asked me (what a weird question, IMO!), but if they did, I’d probably say no.

    In general, absolutely not.

    I did let one of my bridesmaids look at it, during which time she tried it on. So I guess my exception is best friends.

    I just think it’s a little weird in general. 🙂

    In Ireland people make wishes on engagement rings. You give your ring to the wish-maker and they put it over the knuckle on their left hand. They turn it three times and make three wishes. One for you, one for your future husband and one for themself. So I’ve given up my ring a few times for that.

    @MlleFrog – I was just going to say it’s good luck/good for wishes here in Ireland!  And even when I’m home in the US I’ve let anyone (I know) try it on or see it up close and off my hand.  I have no problem taking it off to let someone else try it or admire it.  Although I do remember trying my sister’s on ten years ago when she got engaged and my now-brother in law almost passed out when he saw  her hand it over to me!

    I don’t think i’d have a problem with it…except for one of my REALLY good friends, I would not let her try it on. That sounds horrible, lol!

    But really, she is such a copy-cat and has already expressed interest in wanting the exact same ring (like she wants to know where I go it, how much it was, yada yada yada) that i’d be terrified she’d fall even more in love with it. She means well, and i guess copying is a form of flattery, but I wouldn’t be flattered if she got the same ring…i’d be pissed 🙂

    Any other good friends or family members I probably wouldn’t have a problem with it…as long as they didn’t wear it too long!
