I was talking with some Co-workers and it seems like all of us received some sort of (necklace/ ring) before the Engagement Ring came along and some of them received a promise rings. Did you get a ring/jewelry before the Engagement Ring if so please share your photo!!
My story: I never got a promise ring, but i have been very lucky to be with a man who has given me more beautiful necklaces than i ever could have dreamed. I had a surgery on the front of my neck which has left a 7″ scar. It was something that made me uncomfortable and selfconcious. Wearing a necklace made me feel better, it was something beautiful that would draw attention away from the scar. I think this is the reason i have been given so much jewelry is because he knows how much i have appreciated having something beautiful to cover what i thought was ugly. (its been 3 years since my surgery and my scar has faded, its no longer something i think about, the scar will be there forever and i love it just the way it is.)

Those are all really pretty. Fiance knows how much I love jewelry (I’m an accessory fiend) so I’ve gotten it as a gift for birthdays and Christmases pretty regularly.

Wow what a necklace collection!
Yes, I got jewelry from Darling Husband before my e-ring. After maybe 2 years of dating he stopped though. LOL. He’s given me 2 necklaces, 1 bracelet, and a promise ring 🙂
Unfortunately, I don’t have any photos 🙁

Those necklaces are gorgeous! I received a promise ring when we first started dating 5 years ago.

Those are beautiful! Fiance gave me a hercules knot necklace for valentines/bday present one year and the following year he gave me hear shaped earings. Here’s a pic of the necklace with my Engagement Ring.

I LOVE all your necklaces, so pretty! The only piece of jewelry I got from Fiance before the e-ring (and after as well…) was a silver braclet for v-day.

The only piece of jewelry Fiance got me is the e-ring.

Nope, no jewelery, ever. But he did get me a steel mug and titanium spork. I’ve gotten a lot of use out of them.

My fiance gave me a diamond heart necklace about 6 months before we got engaged. And another necklace after we got engaged.

My husband had gotten me several necklaces before we got engaged. We weren’t the promise ring types, though. He got me an opal ring after we got engaged, to wear on my right hand.

I got a beautiful tennis bracelet for our 6 month anniversary. I still wear it everyday and it’s probably the most important piece (for sentimental reasons) other than my e-ring. I also got some diamond drop earrings and a couple of necklaces.
I would love a rright hand ring in the future.

He has given me so much jewelry over the last 5 years, I finally told him “Unless it’s the ring, I don’t want anymore jewelry from you!” lol Then Christmas morning I got my third pair of diamond earings, I almost beat him.. little did I know 5 hours later I’d be getting my ring! Woohoo!
Besidess my e-ring I’ve gotten: 2 rings (one was a promise ring), 3 necklaces, 3 pairs of diamond earings, 1 tennis bracelet, 2 bracelets..there has probably been a few more I’m missing.. unfortunately a lot of it I don’t even wear.. I’m never w/o my e-ring or a pair of diamond earings though!
He says I’m spoiled.. Nah.. a girl can never have too many diamonds, right?!

Your necklaces are so pretty!!! For our one year dating anniversary I got a gorgeous diamond necklace. That year for valentines day I got matching earrings. They are all round diamonds and now match my ering!
ETA: We just celebrated our 5 year anniversary in Feb.

How fun! Sorry if the picture is big -_- and blurry. I quickly just took it on my iPad
First I got my promise ring, the little diamond in the box on the right, after we had dated for 4 months and were 16. Then for Christmas I got the little diamond necklace on the bottom right. (my first diamonds! small but so exciting!)
Then I got the pearl set, necklace bracelet and earrings, for Valentines day. For my 18th birthday I got the heart-shaped amethyst set, around a carat center each for the necklace and earrings, and the halo ring in the box on the left, which I wear as a right hand ring but consider my 2nd promise ring. He even made a renewed promise, since we were moving together a month later and his promises had changed from the first ring.
Then my ering and band peaking out of the corner! Although we bought the band together.
