I definitely think it depends on how it is done. I enjoy seeing pictures of others rings (because I am diamond obsessed). But, personally, I did not share ring pics on social media because those I really care about will see it in person.

FantasticFawn:  It depends. I think sometimes it can be bragging, other times I think it’s just pure excitment for the person. I didn’t post mine on FB, but I posted it on instagram. Mainly because my IG account is much more private and I only follow family/close friends.

I only post my pictures of my ring on here. I posted a picture of my Fiance and I with me holding up my hand but that was it. You could barely see what the ring really looked like.

I LOVE looking others rings but I come here for that. lol

I posted one on my hand when we got engaged. People who do it constantly (I have that friend) is a bit Braggy. Every time she gets a manicure she posting ring shots.   I don’t post pictures of my martinis all over social media. even though I find that to be a beautiful picture.

I like seeing everyone else’s rings.  It gave me a good idea of the different styles I likes.  Plus, it was beneficial seeing rings on someone’s hand rather than just by itself on the jeweler’s website.

Personally, I think it’s tacky, but that’s for me – I don’t care what anyone else does.

I posted a picture just after we got engaged and people wanted to see – most of our friends and family live away so it went on FB.  There were probably a few in the wedding pictures we posted as well.

I definitely don’t post ring selfies on a regular basis (except here)

FantasticFawn:  I posted an album of ~20 pics of our weekend away and included a pic of the ring in there. I didn’t post it till about 2 weeks later after we had a chance to tell our families. I figured that way people who wanted to see it could, and I wouldn’t be shoving it in everyone’s faces via the”news feed.” Worked for me. I know not everyone agrees with this approach.

FantasticFawn:  I posted a picture of my fiance and I as a social media announcement after he proposed. I wanted it to be about us as a couple, not about a material possesion. I also wanted to have people ask about my ring so I could show it off in person!

I think 1-2 ring shots as part of announcing your engagement and then as part of your engagement or wedding photos is fine. Anything more than that is braggy. There are always those girls who are constantly posting about the most minute details about their wedding and going out of their way to say “fiance” every other status that drive me up the wall.

I posted one when I was first engaged because I was excited and I have a lot of friends on Facebook who don’t live anywhere near me who won’t ever see my ring.

I posted another after I had it professionally cleaned just because I was amazed at the sparkle.

And I got a matte pink manicure that I was digging so I posted a pic of that, but it was probably perceived as a ring pic. But I’m right handed, if I’m taking pictures of my hand it’s probably going to be my left hand by default.

I had a friend who only texted a pic to all of her close gal pals, another friend who only posted after people asked to see it, and then other friends who posted nothing at all or posted the ring itself as the announcement of their engagement. Lots of different ways to handle but I think you’ve got the right idea! If it’s something that may bother others, I guess it’s best to show those who ask or keep it under wraps. Very considerate, thoughtful, and kind of you.
