Are You Superstitious About People Trying on Your Engagement Ring?
“I had my friend, my sister and my Mom ask to try on my ring. I had no issue with it because it wasn't like they were going to steal it or take a hammer to it or throw it across the room. Now if some rando wanted to try it on then I would say no and quickly walk away, but a close friend or family member? I don't see the issue.
Just remember that the meaning behind the ring is what is important. The ring itself is just a piece of jewelry, but what it signifies to you is the important part. And someone else trying it on does not diminish the significance and it certainly does not have the same significance to the person trying it on. To them it is just a pretty ring." – Maggie0829
“A few of my friends tried it on. I was the first one to get engaged so they were excited and wanted to see what it looked like on their hand. No big deal." – emmaaa
“I think it is really weird to ask to try on someone's e-ring. If they want to see how a ring looks on their finger, they should go to a jewelry store." – littlemushroom
“I understand others are excited and want to see the ring, but they don't need to be trying it on. I was asked once and I said no. It's sorta similar to showing your friend your wedding dress and her asking to try it on. It's something that holds a lot of value to you being the one to wear it. I would just say “I'm not comfortable with that" and move on." – Sugargirl1019
“I can't tell you how many people who have tried on my ring! Not to mention my Fi's grandmother who wore it for 40+ years before it was given to me!" – AzAnnie
