    @skippydarling:  Yes because wedding is like minded people typically engaged, waiting, or married who are interested in your ring.  I don’t post pics of my ring in cooking.  Besides on weddingbee it’s sharing but on FB is bragging.  Two totally different things.  

    But that’s my opinion, to each his own.

    @skippydarling:  @Chrissy26:  +1!!

    I’m not sure what the difference is between posting on WB or FB is either? Aren’t they both social media sites? I understand that WB is dedicated to wedding/relationship related posts but remember facebook (for example) consists of life related posts… which include weddings, birthdays, vacations.. etc etc.

    As long as there isn’t a whole album dedicated to the ring, I fail to see how that is tacky or bragging? Getting engaged is a huge milestone for many people, and the engagement ring is a symbol of the commitment they just made.. so I personally don’t see anything wrong with sharing a pic along with the announcement

    Plus one of the most common comments I see regarding engagement announcements (Here AND on facebook, AND other sites) are asking for pictures of the ring if its not already posted!

    @HappyInLove11:  I posted once when I received it, but that’s it. No one cares but me, really. Also, being friends with Future Mother-In-Law on FB, I think it would be weird posting her ring all the time.

    Uh yeah my ring is posted on facebook… why have a social media site if your not going to share the big events in your life with your friends and family? Getting those rings is a pretty big event in my eyes. I find it weird when people don’t share a photo of their ring I always wonder if they didn’t like it.

    Wow, people think it’s tacky/bragging to post it on FB? Really? There’s so much more that is both those things on fb.

    Yes, I posted my ring. I posted a few pro shots we took the day we got engaged (he hired a pro photog to take pix of the actual proposal).

    I’m super proud of my ring. My Fiance worked hard and got it for me in mind. Of course I want to show it off. I don’t post pictures anymore of it and I definitely take pictures of it specifically for these boards (and not for fb), but I actually get upset when people don’t post pix of their rings on FB when they get engaged – what’s the secret?

    I will probably post a ring of my set when I get married, too!

    I did after the proposal because it’s common around where I live to show off the ring on facebook.. I mean, come on, it’s exciting and you want to be in the spotlight for a little while, right?

    I do not plan to post a picture on FB of my ring once I’m engaged because I’m not huge on posting pictures on FB in the first place. That said, I do not think it’s tacky. I think the recent obsession with posting “selfies” on FB (UGHHH!) has taken tacky to a whole new level… and posting a ring pic is not on that level.

    I refused to post a picture of my ring to facebook.  I did not want people commenting and judging.  The ring is mine and I love it.  I did, however, recently post a picture of the new wedding bands we decided to go with (wrap guard) on instagram with the tag line “still a whole year until I get to wear this bad boy”.  More so announcing my wedding was a year away 🙂

    @HappyInLove11:  No. I personally can’t stand people who constantly post pictures of their ring and expect me to care. I really don’t. I choose not to subject others to behaviour that I find irritating.

    @This Time Round:  Well, there is that about it…I don’t even have Facebook 😛 I only used LinkedIn and I absolutely know that no one on that site gives a shit about a ring. I ignore the ring boards here (where it is absolutely appropriate to post ring pictures) and I don’t think rings should be posted in other settings not designated for it.

    The people finding this tacky are probably the same people that think its not ok to post pictures of your kids on fb…whatever. If you don’t like it then A: don’t look B: Block me C: maybe you should just avoid using computers bc plenty of people post more stupid things than their rings

    I have not posted my rings on FB. When I changed my status to “engaged” several people asked, but I just let it go because I don’t want to seem like a braggart. I’m not saying that people shouldn’t be elated and want to share what may be one of the largest investments they’ve ever made, but personally I just have alot of “friends” that seem in a race to out do each other and I would not ever want anyone to think that I buy into that egocentricism. I only go on FB to get updates on my close family anyway and they all already know what my rings look like. Let’s just say the level of narcissism some display on FB is nauseating.

    That being said, I also would not want the whole world to know what type of valuables I might have in my house at any given time because I do not trust social media. I mean…when people announce they are vacationing somewhere or constanty “checking-in” via social media, I think that gives someone perfect opportunity to help themselves to the contents of their unoccupied house with a pretty good sense of when the occupants will be returning!!!! IMO not safe at all..Here on WB, the ring boards are anonymous and I feel safe 🙂  ((Hugz))

    I posted one of my ering after being engaged because people asked to see it. It doesn’t last long on the feed. I was really against it actually. I have not posted any of the wedding band and only about 5 wedding pictures.
