    I think posting a couple of photos is totally, totally okay! People post beer pong photos on there, I think THAT is really tacky.. and with so many people living so far away from friends and family, it’s the easiest way to share!

    I totally posted the pictures of my ring the day I got it!  So have my friends on FB.  I don’t see anything wrong with it, people always ask to see the ring anyway, and my pixs are for my friends only not publicly displayed.

    For some reason, posting ring pictures just really annoys me.  I don’t mind engagement photos and such (I had a picture up of me holding out my left hand and Fiance pretending to shoot himself – ha) but I can’t stand seeing people’s rings as their profile picture.

    If there are 60 pictures thats a bit much, but two or three I think is totally fine!! Im like you, I like to check out the rings, see the cute proposal day picture, etc… Plus I really like all the creative Engagement ring shots ladies are coming up with lately! πŸ™‚

    My friend posted a pic of the e-ring (and all of the photos from the day we got engaged). I just didn’t tag the ring pic. Someone would have to be a very thorough stalker to find it.

    I don’t think its “tacky” at all to me its like posting pics of your favorite cute shoes, or any other picture of an object that we love πŸ™‚

    @Corgi: I can deal with that…like if people want to check it out, it’s there.  But I am so tired of seeing friend updates and it’s just a bunch of rings glaring me in the face haha

    Personally, I didn’t post ring pictures.  Friends and family wanted to see, so I texted/emailed the pictures to them.

    You know, I totally like looking at the ring pictures, but I think some of them could be more tastefully done.

    There’s the side pose where the hand is oh-so-perched as to say “LOOK WHAT’S ON ME!”, like they’re trying to be subtle.  

    There’s the “look it’s a ring!” picture/set (the kind I’d be likely to do, but in an album), a picture of the ring in the box and/or on the finger.

    Then there’s the HAND. that’s all.  HAND.  with RING.  Usually the picture isn’t the best quality, either. πŸ™

    The taste comes in in that all of these end up being profile photos, as opposed to an album.  It almost seems like it’s a rite of passage:  get the ring, take a picture of it, post it on your social networking page.

    I say to my bf, I’d never do a picture like that.  But then I look in my flickr page, and there are totally non-engagement ring-pictures… but then again, those were to be sent to people so I could show them, not as a “Hey lookit!” profile picture.

    *shrugs* I don’t think it really matters, especially if the pictures can only be seen by family and friends. If it bothers people, they shouldn’t look at the pics.

    Of course, one of my biggest personality flaws is my nosiness…er…robust curiousity, so I love seeing pics of anything engagement/wedding related!
