I’ve had patients take pictures of mine while working with them. I think this is due more to the “uniqueness” of my ring, even though rose gold is fairly common on the bee.

Yes often, I also often comment on sparkles, it’s the magpie in me

No. I get comments from strangers like nail technicians once in a blue moon. 

When first engaged I got the almost obligatory comments from lots of friends and acquaintances but that dried up quite quickly.

But your comment has me worried. Because I have whatever the opposite of Resting Bitch Face is….I’m always being approached for directions, the time, spare change, surveys, you name it. I guess I have a generically harmless approachable face (lol the bitch is coiled inside)…so my ring must be underwhelming cry

Compliments when you’re first engaged sure, maybe a few infrequent random ones after that….but passersby catching sight of it/ strangers grabbing your hand…I’ve literally never heard of htis outside of weddingbee, not even with a few of my DH’s nieces who have rather large and quite sparkly rings.

Yep. Happens all the time! I’m a graphic designer… And so customers see my hands a lot when we go over their orders or when im showing them different designs.

No bad compliments or anything. Mostly everyone says its beautiful and congratulate me. ๐Ÿ™‚

I’ve been married for 13 years, but when I was engaged, my ring was mercilessly stoned with looks of disdain and words of criticism because it didn’t fit the American standard where I live, meaning any rock less than a carat is worthy of a trash can. I have only received a couple of compliments from strangers over the years and I remember them because the positivity is so rare.

There was a woman in a store I frequest who shouted across the room, “Giiiiiirl! Your ring is BLINDING me!” It made me very uncomfortable. I’ve had others tell me my ring was beautiful before, which was fine, but it isn’t THAT impressive a ring to be calling across a room. Honestly, I’ve tried to avoid that store since…
