Etiquette police

I couldn't help but notice a blogpost today - a blogger I follow recently got engaged. Honestly, I couldn't be more happy for her.

However, she blogged about the specs of her ring - karat size, everything.

Something about reading it - quite honestly I don't care how big your engagement ring is - turned me off, and I found myself scrunching my nose at the absurdity and abruptly stopped reading.

I'm no etiquette police but I do not go flaunting around my engagement ring specs all over the blogosphere. If people ask, sure I'll share, but I don't just offer up the info because I find it obnoxious, who cares about the carat size or the clarity? People who ask are even tackier than those who just offer it up.

What say you nearlyweds? Offering up your engagement ring specs, tacky or no?

Way tacky. People have asked me to post pictures of my ring, and the whole idea turns me off. It's information I've only shared with family and friends from far away if they've asked.

That's pretty tacky. If someone asks, I'll tell them the specs but waving around my finger and saying "oh my ring is this many karats" is pretty rude.

oh yes tacky!! wow. I agree, it's not information that should be shared voluntarily, and asking someone about the specs is also rude, I think.

i don't find it tacky as much as i find it just immature.
then again we all find value in different things and she obviously values those details... we've all got opinions.

tacky tacky tacky...and agree with notsojenny...extremely immature.

who really cares? i'm more interested in the details of the engagement than the ring itself.

I don't even know all the details of my ring specs! I couldn't tell anyone even if they asked . . .

I totally brag about my ring size, but that's because the center stone is 1/3rd of a carat and I think people should know that the ring they are oohing over and saying, "oh it's huge" is actually not that large, the size is an illusion created by the setting. I also brag about my ring all over the place because I love it and my fiance designed it himself and did such a good job.
I agree that it's a little tacky, but it's also something I wonder about, so I think the person just wanted to share as much info about her ring as possible...
