I agree with pp. As long as you were geuinely being positive/complimentary then I think it’s ok. Adding to what other posters have said, you also are someone she KNOWS. I mind much less telling coworkers about my ring than when total strangers just ask something along those lines.

HAHA don’t worry about it!!! My Mother-In-Law wears a HUGE ring and I didn’t ask her but I asked my SIL about the carat size. Pretty sure SIL told Mother-In-Law I asked but whatever lol! 

(Btw, its an 8 carat solitaire!!!!)

I think you’re fine. ๐Ÿ™‚ Now if you’d followed that up with an “is that real?!?!”… ๐Ÿ˜›

@joya_aspera:  HAHA! I had a coworker ask the same about my EGL F!!! I know EGL is lenient, but really? At most, at the VERY most, it can be a J. Come on!! HAHAHA.

I don’t think its a big deal to ask that, its almost like a compliment because you’re acknowledging its huge. I think its rude when someone has a ring thats on the smaller side and someone asks the size- because then its like they’re highlighting that its small and probably less expensive.

I would have probably done the same thing if I saw a ring that big. I think you’re in the clear, especially since you paid her a compliment too.

I feel like if I saw a friend’s ring that was wayyy bigger than anything I have ever seen I would be curious and tempted to ask…I wouldn’t fret about it. I’m sure she gets that a lot considering how big it is!

I would love to see a photo of her ring! ๐Ÿ™‚ However, I will play devils advocate and say it is a little awkward when people ask. I have a 2 carat cushion and I find it strange when I am asked by other people (other than very close family or friends.) Most of the time they’re being very nice about it, however, to me, it’s the same question as “How much does he make?” which is blech, so yuck. Now, I don’t have a 6 carat ring, so I am sure she gets asked a lot, just because it is so big, however, I’d still respond with my usual reply of “It’s big enough!”
