I don’t think it is that common to compliment someone’s engagement ring unless it is immediately after they get engaged and the tone is basically omg congrats, let me see the ring?!

I have never seen an adult mention someone else’s engagement ring before.

Being a cashier it is probably a little more common as people are generally just trying to think of some nice but on the surface level chat to fill the few minutes that they are standing there.

I never compliment people’s rings unless they actually make a point to show me their ring, then I kind of have to say something nice.

I’ve rarely gotten complimented on my ring.

Every now and then! When I first got engaged everyone who knew me commented on it but I still get compliments from random strangers that make my day ๐Ÿ™‚

Never comment on others’ and rarely even notice them. I just got complimented by a coworker this week actually but it’s pretty rare. My ring is not especially eye catching and appeals to people who don’t like a lot of flash. The rest of the world doesn’t see it ๐Ÿ˜›

Ugh deleted my comment lol. You have a lovely ring set!

I am a stay at home mom as well so keep this in mind. Since I don’t go out much I have fewer opportunities to do what I normally do. Prior to baby I usually complimented someone about once a month if I saw they had an unusual colour or size or I just thought it was  plain pretty even if it was more common looking as long as I felt it was an appropriate time.

For instance even if it was a gorgeous ring I wouldnt tell someone walking down a hall that they have a beautiful set. However if I was at the pharmacy/cashier/ doctor/ whatever and I noticed. Absolutely I would!

I get only a few comments for my own set.  However,  I do not think people usually comment to people about their jewellery. I don’t think most people even notice peoples rings normally. I really think only the jewellery fiends like myself notice and comment on others stuff. And that is okay to me. My ring is from my husband to me for me to enjoy. Compliments from others or no. Just because people rarely tell me its beautiful doesn’t mean its ugly. Just enjoy your set! It’s beautiful ๐Ÿ™‚

never comment on others, unless it is super unique AND i like it.

i received compliments when i first started wearing it (it wasn’t completed until a few weeks after the proposal) but i don’t flash it around or want people to make comments. it was my grandmother’s diamond and larger than average.  after baby#1 i stopped wearing it.  now after baby #2, i have 15lbs to lose to get my wedding band to fit back on my finger.

I don’t get a ton of compliments on it from strangers, but random acquaintances, like neighbors and people I see on occassion, will notice it immediately and congratulate me.

And honestly, while I LOVE my ring to death, it’s really nothing special.  It’s a nice sized stone on a plain band.  It’s sparkly and might catch people’s eyes, but it’s not an intricate design that deserves a ton of praise.

I’ve been married since 2012, so nada.  I don’t notice other people’s rings and I’m sure they don’t notice mine.  It was only a thing when I first got engaged, or when my friends did.  After that nobody cares, lol.  

Your rings are really gorgeous, though!

 Lol never. Only when people found out I was engaged. I don’t go out of my way to stare at people’s rings either.

mariastarlove :  I will compliment a random person on their ring if I find it cute and I love it. I’ve never gotten rude looks but generally I am conversing with them. I also get a lot of compliments on my ring. Just the other day my coworker complimented me on my engagement ring.

I still get compliments on my ering even after almost 4 years. It’s because mine is unique (floral yellow gold halo). I was just at a wedding the other week and my Darling Husband and I were holding hands with mine on top and the woman sitting to the left of my Darling Husband said how beautiful my rings are and the mother of the bride who was turned around also complimented mine. It’s always a nice feeling & makes my Darling Husband proud! ๐Ÿ˜‰

I got two compliments last week on my wedding set. It’s not amazing by Bee standards but is pretty striking in real life.

I get compliments on my ring all the time from random people. Last week I had 2 people I didnt know comment on it, and  I would say at least once ever 2 weeks since getting it in July! It is a rosegold morganite in a classic cushion halo setting, and but the stone isn’t too common in my area so maybe because its a bit different?
