mrssloan2013: craigslistgirl:   What? Does she not get to take delight in her new sparkly like every one else? I see no humble brag here, she clearly stated she wants to show it off, and good for her! 

Congrats on a lovely ring OP!

Hi Everyone, newbie here.

Been engaged about 2 weeks now. Don’t normally wear rings so difficult to get used to. Also I have fibromyalgia so I’ve now got quite a bit of muscle pain in that hand and have had to take the ring off for a few hours at a time so that the pain didn’t get too much, although the last couple of days I’ve managed to wear it all day – which is a bit of a relief as I didn’t want to have to keep doing that forever!

I’ve been engaged 9 months. I still forget to put it on sometimes before I leave for work because I don’t sleep in it and I never wear much jewelry. It’s a hard habit.


also, i think some people on this thread are the last people who should be joking about a person bragging about her ring.

FutureDrAtkins:  My thoughts exactly!  Some of us shouldn’t be casting stones, especially when we’ve lost count of how many stones we’re on…

OP, your ring is so beautiful!  You’ll definitely get used to it.  Congratulations!

Nimmle02:  Your ring is very lovely! It took about 2 weeks for me to adjust to wearing my ring, and now I feel funny when I take it off.

Nimmle02:  Hmm…def don’t see this as a “humble brag.” I know I got made of the first month I got engaged because I could not get used to my ring. I don’t wear jewelry at all, so all of a sudden having this ring on my hand all. the. time. that I can’t really take off or adjust to a different finger was driving me a little crazy. Plus, I have a solitaire, by the setting where the stone was still scratched at my finger quite a bit at first. Eventually, the longer I wore it the more comfortable I got and now I don’t even realize it’s there.

Nimmle02:  Your engagement ring is stunning! I think the warm stone in the platinum setting looks divine. I even looked at older posts to see more photos of it. πŸ˜‰

I understand what you mean about not being used to wearing it. Unless it’s a very dainty piece, I’m always like that. Especially with rings, probably because I’m looking at and moving my hands around all the time. Additionally, there are more sensory connections to your hands and fingers than there are to, for example say your wrist or neck area.

craigslistgirl:  I don’t think she’s humble bragging. Plenty of women post engagement ring photos on posts that are specifically related to their engagement rings (and even on posts that are not).

mrssloan2013:  If she’s humble bragging, then what are you doing? Just bragging? I don’t pay much attention to specific posters, but even I know that you post photos of your ring everywhere you go. I don’t care what you do and you have a pretty ring, but hello pot.

Nimmle02:  To reiterate, I think your e-ring is lovely. I am also guilty of being extra excited about things sometimes. Congratulations!

I’m confused . . is “humble brag” supposed to be a bad thing?

GroovyHippieChick:  Regular bragging:  My ring is sooo huge and amazing and looks even bigger on my tiny fingers! Humble bragging: My itty bitty ring finger hurts because my stone is just so heavy because of how big it is, I don’t know how to deal with such a difficult life!

Adding, you can humble brag about anything really, you just make it sound like you aren’t fishing for compliments. A better example – Bragging: I am soo hot. Humble bragging: Guys are always telling me how beautiful I am, it’s so annoying.  I mean, I only modeled for Vogue *once*.

For the record, I don’t think OP is humble bragging!  It took me a little bit to get used to the feel of a ring.

I never wore rings prior to getting an e-ring (mostly because I have size 4 fingers so shopping for a cocktail ring or any other form of jewelry in that realm was never an option) so wearing one took some getting used to.

The funniest and probably the most embarassing incident to date was when I smacked myself in the face while sleeping with it on the night after we got engaged and woke up with a princess cut square imprint on my upper cheek. Classy. He couldn’t stop laughing. I have stopped hurting myself since πŸ˜‰

Nimmle02:  It’s soooo beautifulllll πŸ˜€ Haha honestly the diamonds in between my fingers would probably drive me batty. I tried on an infinity band and nearly threw it back at the guy (very texture sensitive lol). So I can imagine it takes some getting used to πŸ™‚ If you feel like you need to share more pics, I’m really not going to complain!

I’m glad some of the other ladies addressed the humble brag comment before I could get to it. The cattiness on this board sometimes gets to me. Ladies, if you’re looking to flame someone, do it to someone who is obviously asking for it, not someone who is newly engaged and still glowing from a proposal (with a lovely lovely ring!).

Nimmle02:  Like you, it took me a while to adjust to wearing an ering because while I wear jewelry (earrings and a pandora bracelet) daily, I don’t wear rings much/at all. I’m 6 months in and have been at the point for a while that if I accidentally forget my ring at home (VERY infrequently), I feel rather self conscious/naked without it πŸ™‚

I’m still hyper aware of wearing it while doing things with my hands because I’m afraid I’ll knock it on something but for the most part, it’s become an extension of my hand while I’m out and about. Mine has some pave stones down about halfway around the band and that irritated my finger initially but it’s either toughened up the skin or I just don’t notice it anymore.
