    I admire mine constantly! All lighting! I love getting to know the different facets of its personality (see what I did there?)

    I love to see others’ rings, I just love to see them from an aesthetic POV, but I don’t tend to think about any other ring but my own for more than a few seconds, maybe a minute at most! It’s more like looking at art, or trees, or a meadow of flowers, to enjoy in the moment, rather than looking at options in a store to think about replacing my ring with, KWIM? I’ll never replace my ring, it is mine like my eyes are mine. i notice other people’s pretty eyes but I don’t want to pluck mine out of my skull and trade, lol!

    I love my ring – I don’t think I will ever not love it because of the man who gave it to me.

    My ring is a little plain compared to others, so sometimes I get a little bored with it. I have a friend with a super blingy ring that I’m envious of. When we get together, I ask if I can put it on for a few minutes. Whenever I do, I instantly realize it’s not me. I put my ring on and although it’s not as blingy, it’s feels like me and I fall in love with it all over again.

    1) clean it. a good clean just brings the sparkle back

    2) look at it under different lighting. My moissy looks different in different lighting. I love looking at it everywhere because it has its own personality and I never know what she’ll do next.

    Well I have only had my current engagement ring for about a week now, but my first engagement ring I wore for about a year and a half. With that ring when I’d tire of it I would give it a nice good clean and have a photoshoot! Tongue Out

    I don’t ever get tired of my ring but I do love it a little more everytime I see it under Walmarts lights or on a cloudy day.

    I love my ring, but I definitely get size envy here on wb. I agree with cleaning it & then seeing it in your favorite lighting.

    What works even better for me is forgetting them when I leave for work in the morning (not that I ever do this on purpose). I spend the entire day missing them, feeling naked, imagining this is the one day my house gets randomly robbed, etc., etc.

    Ugh, don’t create a thread asking for comments- it’s likely you’ll end up feeling even worse after all the “I don’t like it, it’s not my taste” comments.

    I have a band that I rotate with periodically. It changes the look but I always go back. Also, take creative pics! Lol

    I don’t think I’ve ever really fallen out of love with my ring.  I’ve had them for 3 and 4 years and it’s just the symbolism of them at this point that’s important.  And of course they’re pretty and sparkly as well.

    I change them up. I wear just the band or just one band and the ering or sandwich or two on one side. I did purchase a berricle ring for fun and I love it and am thinking of another one.

    I can’t say I’ve ever had a “not loving my ring” moment. The one thing I kind of don’t like is that the prongs are bulky – I do get prong envy when I see those skinny claw prongs… but everything else about my ring is SO perfect that the one minor imperfection doesn’t affect my overall love for it. But also I helped my fiance pick it out and it’s a sapphire, which I had wanted since I was a little girl (the ONLY wedding thing that I had ever dreamed of!).
