Why can’t you just extend your hand so they can look at it? It seems like everyone does it that way. Not sure why you’re taking it off??

Yeah, I’d never take the ring off to show people. They would never have the opportunity to put it on their finger.

sharpshooter :  I’d never remove any piece of jewellery of significant monetary or sentimental value outside of my home, I feel like it’s just asking for it to get lost or somehow damaged, and therefor not an intelligent choice.

And “imo” stands for, in my opinion. Do you not know internet short hand? If so, what’s with that bizarre regional comment? It makes no sense.

nykkee :  It was not that serious.  Since this thread was specifically about an e-ring I thought you were referring to very specifically never taking off an e-ring outside of the home.  

Now that you explained you were referring to all valuable jewelry it makes more sense.

And yes, I know what IMO stands for.  Ha.

I’d let my friends try it on for a minute but that’s it. Although my fingers are really small so I don’t think any of them would be able to lol!

I wouldn’t dream of asking to try someone’s e-ring on…I thought is was bad manners. Not judging though, as long as the bride to be doesn’t mind I suppose.

I have a coworker who has asked to try my ring a few times, but she literally wore it for like 30 secs before I was like, K give it back now. But 30 mins?!? Hell to the no. That’s weird, and I wouldn’t let someone do thst. Your coworkers are nuts.

annann91 :  It may feel weird the first couple of times, but it’s certainly better than taking it off and letting everyone try it on!

No one has ever asked to try on my engagement ring – everyone was quite happy to look at it whilst it was on my finger. If anyone asked, I think the answer would be no – Darling Husband spent a lot of money on this ring and I would never forgive myself if something happened to it whilst in someone else’s possession.

I have, however, had 2 friends try on my wedding bands (I have a split band). One friend was unsure whether a band would be able to sit flush with her engagement ring and I offered mine up as a tester, the other was interested in mixed metals and asked if she could see how my yellow gold band looked with her white gold engagement ring. These are both long time friends of mine who I am completely comfortable lending things to, they had the ring on for 30 seconds and I was right there the whole time. Plus, my wedding band is considerably less expensive.

I’m not close with any of my coworkers, so wouldn’t feel comfortable with any of them wearing any of my jewellery for even a short amount of time.

Yeah, my friends have tried it on, my fiancé’s mother attempted to try it on (her hand is much larger than mine). Lol I don’t mind at all, they’ve even worn it a couple times. But for longer than a minute? No. That’s odd . . . I would also start to feel a kind of pity for them, as well. Uncomfortable.

summertime8 :  I was gonna say exactly that! All of us in the small finger group have an advantage I didn’t know about I guess

annann91 :  Without reading the other responses NO way. What the hell? This is the equivalent of the kids who wanted to wear my glasses. I hated that shit too.

No, I’d be so weirded out if anyone even asked! I think I’d just say “you want to try my ring???” and stare at them with raised eyebrows until they feel awkward and back off. An engagement ring is way too personal, it’s not a scarf or an umbrella, never mind that they’re expensive.

I have never let anyone try on my engagement ring or my wedding ring, no one has even asked me I find that super creepy and odd
