I don’t understand how someone asking to try on my ring would be a bad thing if anything it is the ultimate complement! I would probably feel a little uncomfortable  if was a total stranger but regardless it’s not like the weirdest question to be asked.

My Mother-In-Law has been married twice but never got an e-ring. ๐Ÿ™

So when I got engaged, she asked to try it on. I could tell she was a little sad and wistful, so I told my step-FIL to go buy her an anniversary ring that looks like an e-ring. ๐Ÿ˜›

I don’t see what the big deal is, I’ve let people try my ring on before. As long as it’s not a total stranger, I take it as a compliment.

The only person who ever asked to try on my ring was my best friend (and I did the same when she got engaged).  I think my sister also put it on but that’s b/c when she asked to look at it closer I just handed it to her.  It’s only a ring, after all.  Now if a stranger asked, I’d say no, because it’s just odd and I don’t know anything about them.  An acquaintance… maybe I’d let them, but probably not.

Depends who. I’d let my sisters and my friends. Never for more than a moment though, and always right in front of me. I would never ask to try on someone else’s though. I tried on my cousin’s wife’s rings mind. They’re some big ass diamonds and lots of them. She handed them to me and told me to. We were clowing around in her car. It was fun.

I’ve had friends and my sister ask yes.  I guess they wanna see what an expensive ring looks like on their hand. It actually made me smile, I don’t see the big deal!

I’m married, but I’ve never had anyone ask to try on my ring. I wouldn’t want anything to happen to it!

It depends on who it is. If a stranger or someone I barely knew asked to try it on, then I would have looked at them like they were crazy. But if it was someone I was really close to, then I woudn’t think it was as big of a deal. My cousin has been the only person to ask me to try on my ring and that was when I first got engaged. No one else has asked me, thank god! My biggest pet peeve though is when people just grab your hand to take a closer look. I know people gravitate towards shiny and sparkly things, but I just find it rude whether I know them or not. I like my personal space lol

In my case it’d be the opposite for me. For instance, my sister doesn’t think she wants a diamond ring, or a stone at all. Just a wedding band. So I Let her wear my ring to give her a feel of it just in case she changes her mind :)) to also give her an idea, if she does decide to get a gem ring, what types of styles she may like when she does go shopping for herself.

Have I experienced people nagging at me or disapproved of my ring because it wasn’t what they wanted me to have? Oh yes. They’d be happy for me for being engaged but I’d get some not-so-nice looks over my ring being “too small” or not the “tradional” type of ring. But I don’t care what they think. I’m the one wearing my ring for the rest of my life, I’ll be the one getting married, and I’m the one who loves my ring very much because my Fiance got it for ME! But have I been asked to give anyone a chance to wear it? Besides my sister heck no! I have small fingers so they wouldn’t be able to fit it on the right finger anyhow. Heehee

Me and my coworkers have all tried on each other’s rings, but we all get along super well. I wouldn’t let a stranger, though.

My close friends have all tried my ring on, and I’ve tried theirs on! And my mom has totally tried mine on too ๐Ÿ™‚

I mean I wouldn’t let an acquaintance or stranger try it on, but the people I love and trust? Why not! They want to see the sparkle and admire the ring, and it’s a fun moment.

Both of my best friends have tried my wedding set on. I’m not a touchy person, and very hard to offend. I love them both and know neither of them meant any harm. They both think it’s beautiful and  i know it’s just curiosity ๐Ÿ™‚ i find it flattering that they think my set is beautiful and would like to see what their possible future wedding sets might look like.

The only person who has was my future Mother-In-Law. XD

For me, the only people who were really interested were those who my fiance told my ring size to… (because I have, apparently, really small fingers… 3.5, “average” is six, but around my area most are size 5.)

No one else has, and for the most part, I would not feel comfortable with it because it feels very personal to me, and I am incredibly afraid it will be stuck on someone else.

a friend of mine offered hers to try on as I’m not sure what type of ring I would like. I was hesitant at first cause some people are superstitious or whatever but I don’t really think it’s a big deal. Would you let someone else drive your car?
