I don’t have ring pics on FB, instagram on the other hand is a whole other ball game. Instagram is all about over sharing random pics so I have no problem posting ring/mani shots. 

My sister posted a couple pics of her ring on FB when she got engaged and I am sure if she hadn’t many of her friends would have asked her to. I do not think it’s tacky at all when it’s part of the announcement, but like random weekly ring shots on FB does seem a bit “braggy”.

I think 1 – 2 is fine with the engagement announcement. After that I’d limit it to professional shots (engagement, wedding)… And  it’s okay if you normally post “selfies” or whatever for the ring to sneek in.

I did not post my ring on facebook or instagram. I posted a vauge shot of it about 2 weeks after being engaged, but you can’t really tell size, shape, or anything other than it has a halo from the picture because of the angle. I do think it is showy/braggy, and like others said, I’d much rather have others ask to see it in person. Anyone who I would really want to see the ring will have the ability to see it in person 🙂

SithLady:  Anytime I see the word fiance without the accent.. I read finance. So the people who want to use the word every 5 seconds aren’t accomplishing much through my eyes, just a lot of finance talk.

Also, I totally agree with you. Although, my ring is not on Facebook.

FantasticFawn:  I use this forum for getting my ring bragging / showing off / what have you out of my system. Personally I think posting too much personal info on social media is tacky in any form. I didn’t even announce our engagement on FB till a week after. We told everyone important in person first before posting it. I have NEVER posted my ring on FB, Twitter, or Instagram. I’ve had a few people ask to see my ring and I sent them a shot of it.

Heck I haven’t even posted a single detail about my wedding planning or honeymoon plans to FB.

In short, my opinion is that posting it on Social Media is tacky. I say don’t do it.

I have a larger ring about 5.5 ct total and my hubby is super proud of it and wanted me to post pictures on facebook. I didn’t because I love it but I am self concious about drawing attention to it. Also, I am not someone who friends people I barely know, so basically all my friends have seen it in person…lol

The only ring shot I’ve ever posted on FB was the first pic I took when we got engaged. All my other ring selfies I just post here lol I think it would be pretty baggy to constantly bombard FB with ring selfies.

I put up a picture of my ring when I got engaged on FB, and it has been in some nail art shots on Instagram. But I live in a different country from all of my family and many of my friends, so FB i our main means of communication.

A few hours after I got engaged (after I had time to tell all of my family and close friends) I posted a photo of my ring with the caption, “Starting a new chapter!” It’s the only direct photo of my ring that I have on Facebook, and it’s probably the only photo of it that will ever be on there. In my area, majority of girls announce their engagement on social media with a photo of the ring and a caption stating the obvious. I can only think of a couple girls who did not. 

I love macro photography and all of my little trinkets and nic nacs, so naturally I love taking pictures of my ring too. If I feel so inclined to share a cool shot of my ring, I do it on here, a board dedicated to engagement/wedding rings! I honestly couldn’t care less if someone wants to plaster their ring all over social media, but I don’t do it. Mostly because no one cares as much about my ring as I do, and partly because I don’t want to come off as braggy since my center stone is not exactly considered modest in my area.

FantasticFawn:  Its definitely not my style, but I totally understand why people do it. You’re proud of your ring, proud of Fiance and you just want people to see that! No harm in it, I just keep stuff private because thats how I am. Surprisingly people were a little annoyed that there wasnt a social media ring picture when we got engaged! They were also annoyed to find out that I posted it on fb a week after it actually happened, haha. Oops!

I posted ring pics with the engagement announcement, but I won’t make a point to do it any more (unless they just happen to be amongst wedding pictures). What annoys me more than pictures are the way some newlyweds are. One girl in particular on my Facebook made about 5 posts a day for several months saying “My husband this, my husband that…” That was exhausting.

Another girl who recently got engaged is always talking about the “fact” that she will be marring her childhood best friend. Everyone who knows them, knows that they never hung out until long after high school. I mean come on. That’s unrelated to this post, but rant over.
