I say “It’s very nice!”

Definitely not “It’s perfect for you.” I’ve had someone say that to me and it sat the wrong way with me. It’s an underhanded dig. To me anyway.

I always say no matter what “It’s beautiful!” Really, how hard is it just to say that, you know?

“It’s beautiful”. It’s easy enough to lie and spare their feelings than dance around the subject.

You lie and say “Oh it’s beautiful!” then move on. This is like askng what you are supposed to say when someone’s baby is less than fortunate looking.

Say it’s unique, beautiful, how did he propose, etc. Rings are like favorite colors – I hate orange but other people definitely love it, and there are people who don’t like pink (my favorite) That doesn’t make them pretty or ugly – it’s just personal taste. To that bride, her ring is the most beautiful, so just because you don’t like it, doesn’t make it ugly. One of my good friends got an e-ring I would never, ever, want, but she absolutely loved it – you ooo and ahhh and ask if he picked it out, yada yada everyone’s happy ๐Ÿ™‚

If the ring isn’t my taste I still tell them the ring is beautiful, because its true. Weather or not I think its beautiful if she loves it and thinks so then it is beautiful to someone. ๐Ÿ™‚ I would never say something bad about someones ring, IDC if it was a ring pop I would simply ask them how he proposed? Or something along those lines.

I say something like “oh my god, it’s so pretty and sparkly”.  Same answer as if I loved it.

I always say congratulations and that it’s so gorgeous…

even if I don’t like it, I’m sure the girl who’s rocking it does! No need to make a girl feel bad just because her ring isn’t my taste. ๐Ÿ™‚

I’ve only ran across a few that I don’t genuinely like, and the tend to be very gaudy, so it usually goes, ‘wow, your ring is so large!’ It’s a compliment and still the truth :).

“Its beautiful!” then move on to the proposal or the date before they can say/ask anything else about the ring.

I always lie when they ask, I very rarely like anyone else’s engagement rings.. I mean, I’m pretty sure the only engagement ring I’ve seen on a real life person that I like is my own.. I’m terrible.
