I just tell people it’s bad luck and that usually stops them. I don’t want people trying on my ring. I also wouldn’t let someone test drive my car or try on my clothes lol.

It eems bizarre to me that anyone would do that. Maybe it’s a regional thing? I would just say, “No.”

I think it sounds incredibly weird and awkward. No one has ever asked to wear my ring.

Um, no. My co-workers can go f themselves if they ask me to take off my ring. And walking off with it for half an hour, nopity nope nope nope. 

I could see a friend trying it on, MAYBE. But even that would weird me out.

Some people think it is, but I have no issue letting my coworkers wear my rings, they are pretty and it’s fun to wear them! 

If you were totally okay with it before someone said something, then be okay with it. Some people do not ever want someone else to try on their ring, and that is okay too. ^_^

I’ve let a friend try it on who had also been looking at rings with her boyfriend at the time. My mom has also tried it on too. I would never ever let someone walk away from me though if they had it on. Nope. Wouldn’t care how rude I came across. My ring. Give it back.

I don’t mind when people want to try it on but I think if they are wearing it for that long then it is kinda weird.

nykkee :  is that a regional rule?

Seems a bit extreme to me.

 Like the majority, I would have no problem with someone ( I knew) trying it on, its not going to make any difference to  me  or him or the ring. But half an  hour , no, thats odd, and I would ask for it back .I’d probably  be a bit awkward and mock-jokey about it , but I’d have to have it back.

I wouldn’t  assume  anything particular about a ring being a tad bigger than the regional norm, though .

A coworker said stop wearing people’s rings because it’s freaking weird and makes the owner of it uncomfortable. It’s a meaningful, possibly expensive piece of fine jewelry, so of COURSE it’s off limits. I wouldn’t mind someone trying it on for a sec, but ain’t nobody walking away with my ring! Lol

Why in the world are you pulling your ring off and handing it to people? If they ask to look at it, show them your ring ON YOUR HAND. Don’t take your ring off and hand it to people, especially if you’re too non confrontational to walk over to some chick that wandered off with your ring 30 minutes ago and say “Give me my ring back.”

You’re going to feel terrible if some thing happens to your ring and you have to tell your Fiance that you took it off of your hand and gave it to someone at your job just because they asked for it.

What kind of detailed analysis are you co-workers wanting that they can’t simply admire your ring while it’s on your finger? 


I’d be fine with a sister or daughter or good friend trying on my ring- but it seems rather presumptuous and just plain odd for a co-worker to not only put it on but to wear it for up to half an hour…
