I see nothing tacky about shopping for a ring when you're single, if you are shopping with thoughts of your possibly soon-to-be betrothed. Now, if you are shopping for your OWN ring, that might be a little tacky/selfish.

Hi KimberlyA, I think carats are OK to ask about if it's someone you're really close with. But I'd approach it tentatively so as not to offend.

a few comments: if the guys cheats or otherwise ends the engagement, I don't think it's as tacky to keep the ring. 2) if you really don't like your ring, you should TOTALLY exchange it! You want to be proud of the ring you will be wearing for the rest of your life! 3) if your friend offers for you to try on the ring, i don't think it's tacky to accept.
