    My fiance asked me not to post it simply because it’s like flaunting money/status and he’s not into that stuff. It were up to me I’d post it simply because I think it’s beautiful! Personal preference I say.

    I took pictures of mine as it was being re-set because people were asking about it. I don’t just gratuitiously post pictures though.

    Nope, the only site my ring gets posted on is the bee 🙂

    Definitely not. If someone asks, I’ll show them a picture. It’s tacky and bragging, imo.

    @HappyInLove11:  not specifically of my ring, but I get mani’s a lot and since I’m right-handed it does make an appearance in plenty of mani photos

    No. I try not to really post things that other people would have no interest in. I hate when other people do it. I just think they’re fishing for compliments.

    No, and right now I think there are less than 10 people who know we are getting married. I’m really not comfortable with the whole ”let’s scream it out loud” or officialization of status in front of the whole family. Those who know have been told privately, or have heard from another person (ex.: my Future Mother-In-Law told my Future Sister-In-Law. At dinner at a family event, Future Sister-In-Law discreetly congratulated her brother for getting engaged, and that was all). So I really can’t imagine posting pictures of my ring, dress, venue or anything on a social media. We’re very discreet people and we both feel uncomfortable having the attention on ourselves.

    No… I think it comes off as bragging. It’s one thing to anonymously post my ring here on the ring boards with other ladies’ rings, but I would never post it on my Facebook.

    People have asked for photos and I’ve sent them individually. Hell, I haven’t even announced my engagement on FB… the people who I’m close to know about it and that’s all that really matters IMO.

    @skippydarling:  +1 I’m going to like my ring, thus I’ll post a picture on facebook for people to see it. Deal with it. Not as many pictures as I post of my dog, but you get the idea lol. I’ll probably post a picture when we get engaged, and maybe a couple others. 

    I will say — it won’t be a social media “star”. There won’t be a bunch of pictures, maye just a few. But I will post at least one on my facebook. People want to see it, and I’m not going to send out a bunch of individual pictures. That’s dumb.

    Sure, I intend to open a Twitter account and a Facebook fan page just for my ring when I get it.

    I do participate in social media, but I do not post pics of my ring on there. I save that for the beehive! haha. I think it is a little tacky when people post multiple pictures of their ring up on FB or instagram – but to each his own!
