Haha I have to admit I am fairly oblivious. I also have poor eyesight so while I can tell that someone is wearing a ring I cannot tell what it looks like. With the exception of a couple of close friends I feel uncomfortable asking for closer looks. If it is someone I am not close to I just don’t notice most of the time. I could not even tell you what most people’srings look like that I personally know. Point is, don’t take it personally.

just because people don’t comment, it doesn’t mean that they didn’t notice it. if it’s sparkly, i am sure that they notice.
i ran into a woman i know the other day at the mall. i was carrying a starbucks with me. we chatted for a while and then parted ways. as we were walking away, i said to my dh that i think she kept checking out my breasts. he said no, she was actually checking out your ring. i didn’t even realize it.

I think that people just aren’t really vocal about that kind of thing to Strangers.
I know I’m recently back at university and I have met a TON of girls with beautiful rings. Yes, I have noticed them. Yes, I think theye absolutely stunning. No I don’t generally ask about them!
Funny story, there was one girl who I noticed a ring on, and then heard another classmate say something about her fiancé and then I was in a group with her where we had to group read our autobiographies and hers mentioned that she was going to be a bridesmaid in her friends wedding but didn’t mention hers..so of course by this point I’m burning with curiosity and on our way back to class, I ask her about her ring/engagement. And she got a SUPER awkward face and said it was an awkward story and went in to explain how they were happy and got engaged and then things fell apart and now they’re mostly trying to figure out how to go about splitting up. They are still engaged so she wears the ring but really, the relationship is going to end eventually.
I felt so awful for bringing this up with a perfect stranger and I keep my mouth well and shut now!

I never noticed engagement rings until I got engaged. Right after I got engaged I tried to remember what my friends’ engagement rings looked like – and I couldn’t remember. It’s just not something that many people notice outside of a recent engagement – don’t take it personally.

I remember once getting my nails done the lady commented on my watch, my watch! It was a cheap, average looking watch! I’m like I have 2 gorgeous rings that she can obviously see but she notices my frigin watch.

I get compliments every once in a while, and I truly appreciate them, but it is rare. When we see friends we haven’t seen in a while, or since before the engagement, they’ll say something. But otherwise, it doesn’t happen all that often.

Since I had my ring restyled, I’ve been showing it off to my friends and family and here on the Bee, of course. Everyone has been polite and complimentary. I love my ring, but I’m quite sure most strangers don’t notice it at all. If someone grabbed my hand and screamed “OMG that is the most GORGEOUS freaking ring I’ve ever seen in my ENTIRE life give it to me NOW!!!” I’d be quite surprised, to say the least! 🙂

I notice other people’s jewellery but I try not to stare, even if I really really love something, not necessarily a ring, it could be a bracelet or a necklace too. It’s considered rude where I come from. Commenting… big no no, unless the lucky owner is a (close) friend or family member.

The only time anyone compliments my ring is when im getting a manicure. I’ve never had a random person who was not a manicurist say anything about it

I get comments fairly regularly, but my ring also has a kinda unique design, so most people haven’t seen anything like it before.

I only comment on someone’s ring if I know them personally. You never know who would get uncomfortable about their ring being noticed.
I’m betting a lot of people are also just being polite and keeping their mouths shut.

I got the most comments right after I was engaged mainly from people I knew. I don’t know why people would be interested or care about another persons rings. I also don’t feel the need to get attention for an e ring.
I think the main reasons why you wouldn’t get comments, is the majority of people you come into contact with probably don’t care, and also it’s not like an engagement ring is some rare things a lot of people have them so of course it’s not going to stand out like some speical thing to anyone else but you, and probably some of the people who know you.
