Sounds suspicious to me. It sounds more like he's worried about someone finding out you're engaged. I don't think it's about the ring itself.

Tell him if he's really concerned about the ring, you will buy a cheap ring with a fake stone (they have some that look nice) and wear that. I wonder if he will still be "worried about the ring".

Lol literally anybody and everybody knows that we are together, there would be no reason to hide it.

Well just looked up that jewelry insurance is a thing and it would be like $100 a year. It covers damage, stolen, and lost rings/jewelry. I told him about it and it makes him more 'ok' with the engagement ring not just being an occasional wear

For what it's worth, I've heard of people choosing NOT to wear their engagement ring, if it's a big and fancy very expensive piece of jewelry. What I've heard they do instead, is to have a 'fake' one made, and they'll wear that instead. To each his/her own I would say.

Umm, Kate Middleton wore Princess Di’s sapphire ring this week while sailing in a regatta. That’s just nuts.

If you have a simple ring, why not wear it to the office? However, if is a super blingy family heirloom, I would save it for special occasions for maximum effect.

To each their own, but what's the point of having a ring if you are only going to wear it for special occasions? IMO it's a lot of expense to not wear it and enjoy it all the time. I wear my engagement ring all the time. I never take it off not even to shower or go to the gym. I worry way more about something happening to it if I were to be taking it on and off all the time.

Have you set a wedding date yet? I was and always been very proud of my wife. Shes a good wife and an outstanding person. I'd be unhappy if she didnt want to wear her ring. In fact, she has two. The second one is a band that she got for working days.

I said, Ďbut I think if Iím just sitting at work or doing sedentary things, I think wearing my engagement ring is fine and nothing to worry about.

I think his biggest worry is that I lose or damage the ring.

How can I calm him down and explain that, yes wearing my ring to the gym, showering, moving, and other physical activities makes sense. But itís fine for me to wear it to places where I wonít be really doing anything other than walking or sitting?

Is he being unreasonable?
Maybe it's going to be a million-dollar rock

OP, are you generally in the habit of losing or breaking things?

It does sound very strange that a guy and his best friend are even talking about this issue when it should be just the two of you deciding. The best friend's opinion is completely irrelevant.

Iíve also seen situations where it is just not appropriate. I worked for a social service agency and we were typically helping people who received food stamps and other public assistance. I think itís insensitive to go around wearing an ostentatious diamond engagement ring when others are asking for public assistance. Something simple/modest is no big deal, but big and expensive? Yep... could be seen as insensitive.
