Ha, I would be irked (only for a moment) if that happened to me — but I think it was very sweet and that ring is just shockingly beautiful and unique. 🙂

That’s so sweet of your SO to do what he can right now. It’s so much better for him to wait until he is ready to propose than to just propose because of outside pressure. And such a lovely ring!

I’m so happy that you could have such a good conversation, and that he was the one to initiate it. It’s also great news that you are now on the same page and happy with this arrangement. Congratulations on that talk, and wow! what a beautiful ring!

My Fi gave me a “promise ring” (weird term for a 40 year old) with the same words your SO used. I had mixed feelings for a month. Thrilled we’d moved forward, sad it wasn’t engagement. But after a month I loved that ring and all it symbolized. We got engaged one year later and it’s a right hand ring now.  So happy for you!!!!

Beautiful ring! That is really pretty and a Christmas castle vacation together sounds like a dream trip, so romantic!

In answer to your question though, my advice would be to wear it on the right hand for the time being. (I’m assuming your SO did not specifically ask you to wear it on the left hand?)

Otherwise you will be answering a lot of questions about being engaged, which will put you in the position of discussing private details of your relationship with others. 

Another benefit of wearing it on the right hand is that it won’t take away from the excitement when you finally do get engaged and have your engagement ring.
