No I never discuss rings in real life. I would comment and say rings are beautiful but I would never ask for specs.

Never unless someone has questions because they’re looking for one….

My mum and grandmother and I talk fine jewellery and diamonds. My grandfather was a jeweller, so it’s common talk in our family. But I would never ask ones ring specs in real life unless it’s my mother or grandmother. But to complete strangers etc I would compliment but never ask.

wouldn’t ask about specs ever but I do have a girlfriend that we talk about rings when we see them get posted on fb (usually just about style/size).

lilsweetie:  All of my girlfriends talk about it because they know we’re in the process of having mine made. Typically its not the center of conversation but they are curious. Our families asked yesterday and we talked about it for a few hours so it’s pretty common. I do not ask for specs IRL because some people get very defensive and it’s supposed to be a happy sparkly conversation. If they don’t volunteer I don’t ask follow up questions.

i would never ask someones specs in real life. i personally dont think specs are important details to know about someone elses ring.

I would never ask for specs in real life. I secretly look at everyone’s ring finger I come across to see what their rings look like. But I don’t usually ask to see more closely.

Nope, not in real life! This is where weddingbee saves me. No one has to listen to me go on and on forever about my wedding and rings and stuff. Hehe!

With really close friends, we may ask each other carat size and possibly even price but nothing further than that.

My mother and I are both ring/jewelry obsessed so we talk about it alot. The only time I talk about it with my husband is when he asks about gift ideas. My friends know that jewelry is kind of a hobby of mine and ask for my opinions and advice when they buy jewelry. But other than that my  ring talk stays on the bee

Only with my FI (and it’s mainly a one-sided convo with him smiling and nodding). Otherwise it’s my dirty little Wedding Bee secret! 🙂

Not in real life much at all. I did ask to see my classmates incredible three stone, and I love seeing rings in general but I don’t inquire unless they’re newly engaged. 

One girl at my office did ask if I knew the stats and I told her- but we work in jewelry. It was coming from a place of genuine curiosity not judgement or anything.

When someone I love gets engaged I ask to see the ring.  It’s genuine, I really do like seeing everyone’s rings and I’m happy for them.  

Beyond that and discussing bands on the weekend with my engaged cousin, I never talk about rings.  It’s just not my thing.

I have talked my Fi ear off. But don’t discuss it with my friends. While figuring out what I wanted I talked to my coworker about ideas and suggestions. Most of my friends Roll their eyes
