Apparently, we aren’t the only ones who wondered,”is it proper etiquette to post your e-ring on facebook when you get engaged?!” The morning show I listen to posted the topic on their facebook page…if anybody would like to tally up the 525 comments to gives us the consensus, please do…lord knows it won’t be ME!
Here’s the link to the page:

Elvis Durran posted that right? I saw that this morning! I posted mine! I had 40 likes and 30+ comments…I don’t care what anyone thinks, really! They could just pay no mind or delete me!

I dont see what the big issue is.. Guys post pictures of their shoes.. their watches.. their guns.. etc.. But its not ok for a girl to post a picture of her engagement ring?
I never posted mine.. My Fiance posted it when he announced “I guess I can officially say I no longer have a girlfriend”

I posted mine in an album of our trip (got engaged on vacation). The girls knew to look for it there (and random people from high school), but I felt it was classier than just a mobile upload. However, if my Fiance didn’t put a week embargo on announcing our engagement on facebook, there might have been a moble upload or two ;-).

@BellaDee: hahaha -yes the elvis duran show! I am still iffy if I will post mine or not lol, I might post one photo of it but I’ll see when the time comes! I ALWAYS look for people’s rings when they get engaged, but a lot of my FB friends never post theirs, so I’ll see!

I did not post mine… But I always look for a ring picture when someone changes their status to engaged… I don’t see the big deal…

I don’t see what the big deal is.. people share things that they are excited about on facebook all of the time… I mean, putting up ultrasound pictures seems pretty normal, why not an engagement ring? Everyone’s there to creep on your life, anyway, lol.

I didn’t, but I don’t think it’s weird when people do.

Who cares? Seriously why are people worried about this.
I saw a few comments that went something like this: Depends on how big the stone is and if they are truly engaged for the right reasons
That’s ridiculous!!! If someone has a big rock then they can’t be happy to be engaged?
and if they have a big rock they are gettin married for the wrong reason?
Seriously that sounds like a person being petty, jealous, and out of touch with reality.

I didn’t post mine to my general “friends” on FB. I have people that are just acquaintances or old HS friends, as does Fiance, and we didn’t want people speculating on the size/price of my ring. We like to keep things low-key and tell people that we’re scraping by (not that we’re rich by any means, but we are comfortable and grateful). My Fiance and I put a lot of thought into my ring with no plans on upgrading so IMO, it’s a very nice ring which I’ve gotten a lot of compliments on IRL. In this regard, we didn’t want people we didn’t know very well getting jealous/envious (both powerful emotions!) or speculating about our financial status. The ring will be in our epix and our wedding photos, of course, but it’s not like a “BAM! Check this out!” kind of way.
That said, I don’t care when other people do and I kind of like it when they do as I like checking out other people’s rings. Although, I don’t like blurry photos since it’s hard to tell then what it looks like and is kind of like “What’s the point?”

I think if you don’t live near all your friends and family it’s normal. I did, my family lives out of state, they didn’t want to wait until the wedding to see it.

I chose not to, but it doesn’t bother me. Just one or two nice pictures is acceptable. On the other side of the spectrum, I’m not OK with albums devoted to it…like a girl I went to highschool with “Bling Bling, Brittany’s got the Ring”.

@leeshabee: Agree! I was gonna mention the ultrasound thing too!
I think it’s totally fine to post your e ring pic. Everyone on my friend’s list is a friend of mine in real life, so I’m happy to share my e-ring pics and my ultrasound pics with them! lol

hmmm i am planning on posting a pic of mine, but in a kind of subtle way. like an instagram photo of me drinking coffee or something and you can only see my hands/cup. anyways, when i see someone is engaged, i ALWAYS look for a ring pic. and when they don’t post one, i assume they don’t like their ring. ahahaha i’m starting to realize that’s a wrong assumption, though, based on the debate.

I think posting in celebration (when it happens) is fine. But just like people who commented on Elvis Duran’s Facebook, it’s just like babies/kids or food… when your page gets overloaded with that one thing, you need to stop.
