I was just wondering if anyone else had gotten a promise ring from their fiance, and then he finally made good on the promise.. I had mine for just about 4 years til I got the e-ring.. I personally LOVE my promise ring and still wear it, I just switched it to the other hand. Show pictures if you have them!
(my promise ring is the ruby ring)
(please excuse the poor quailty of picture, they’re much shinier & clearer in person!)

The tanzanite ring is my promis ring. I used to wear it on my left middle finger (I didn’t want to have to take it off to put another ring on) and now I wear it on my right middle finger. I don’t think they look too good on the same hand, but I love them both 🙂
ETA: I didn’t find out it was a promise ring until last month (8 months into the engagement, he got it for me after we had been together for 5 months, and our 5 year anniversary is next week)

I have a promise ring! For us it was never really a “promise to get married” as much as it is a reminder of how far we’ve come together. 🙂 I have always worn it on my right hand, always will! 🙂

I had wanted a sapphire ring for a really long time, and he gave me one as my promise ring on the day Kate and William got married 🙂
Yucky looking nails. It was a cushion cut blue sapphire, with white sapphire surround.
Then on November 26th, 2011, (7 months later) he proposed and gave me this beauty.
I don’t wear my promise ring anymore because I feel like it overpowers my engagement ring. But I still love it, and it will forever be part of our history and our memories 🙂

@DeathByDesign: your promise ring is absolutely beautiful. i love how dainty it is. your DH did a good job picking out both rings.

My FI got me a ring that we called my promise ring, but it was really just a beautiful gift. He was already saving up for my engagement ring when he bought me the promise ring.
Here I’m wearing it on my left hand ring finger, but only to take a good picture of it. When I wore it, I wore it on my ring hand ring finger.

I actually just posted mine to bios, but I’ve had my promise ring for about a year now. We’re pretty young, but I’m hoping for the e-ring this winter! I think I will still wear the promise ring on my right hand once we’re officially engaged because I’m really attached to it. It’s a blue topaz, my birthstone. My SO just saw it as we were walking through the jewelry department of a store one day and we had been talking about a promise ring before I moved to college. He said “I think this is the one.” and bought it right there. :] Such a sweetie.
I love all of your rings, too! I think the daintier ones are especially pretty. My SO always jokes that he will have to save for a decade to buy an e-ring to top my promise ring, but I will be happy with anything he picks out! Diamonds do get pricey.

Mountain Man and I had legal issues to deal with before we could get married. He wanted me to know he was here for the long view and bought me this to replace my previous wedding ring. It’s tanzanite btw

Here’s the one FI gave me…I posted the stock photo because all the pics I had of it were really crappy cell phone pics. I didn’t mind wearing it because not only did it give me a symbol of our commitment to each other, but it was a reminder of him always being there with me in my heart because I didn’t get to see him a lot when we were dating. Lovely rings, everyone!

I do not have any pictures, but I received a promise ring from my now FI about…4 years ago. I still wear it on my right hand. 😉

Well I never got a promise ring, but my engagement ring was listed under promise rings online…so I guess he killed two birds with one stone haha!

My promise ring was given to me when SO and I became a couple, and became exclusive. (It wasn’t meant to symbolize marriage–just our commitment.) This was in HS, which was about 7 years ago. He gave me his class ring, but I had to wear it on a necklace. One day he surprised me with a Tiffany heart that I could wear on my finger. (It’s a little worn now, but I still wear it with love)
