What does a promise ring mean to you?
What does a promise ring mean to you?
I will try to post a picture. I have a promise ring. I got it about 3 years ago after a few months of dating. But after like a week we walked into the ring store to find one. and the man is such a tease it took him a few months to actually buy it.. He has one too but stopped wearing it a while ago. Now he’s just waiting for the wedding ring. To me it reminds me of the beginning of our relationship and how we got started. And that he loved me then and he still does after all this time and all we’ve been through. Sorta like promise was made with the promise ring, promise was kept with the engagement ring and then it will be sealed with the wedding band. I wear it on my right hand.
I have one 🙂
It’s not a normal thing from where I’m from though, but I love mine. To me it signifies a promise that we made to each other that we would commit to each other. I know most people will just say “why not get an engagement ring?” but since this was earlier in our relationship, it was just an outward showing of the fact that we had someone special. He wears one too, and we both wear them on our right hand. I will always wear mine, but I’m not sure if he’s going to keep wearing that AND a wedding ring. We have even discussed having his be his wedding band because it already has so much meaning to it. Mine won’t fit next to my ring because of it’s shape. And I only have a stock photo of it.
I got my promise ring from Darling Husband when I was like… 17, I think? It was way too early for us to be engaged, but we wanted something to symbolize our commitment to one another. We both wanted something that said “we’re in this for the long haul.” I don’t have a picture, but it’s just a sterling silver band with 5 SUPER small diamonds in it- I think it’s like 1/10 ct t.w.
i recieved mine from my fiance around christmas 2010 and we got engaged feb 2011 so i just wear it on my right hand now
I have a promise ring!
My Darling Husband gave it to me on our one year dating anniversary (we were 22). It was a time when we were WAY far from thinking about marriage. For us, the ring symbolizes where our relationship was at the time. It wasn’t ever meant as a “pre engagement ring”. I’ve always worn it on my right hand, and I continue to even now that we’re married. 🙂
SO picked this out as a Christmas gift one year. He told me not to call it a “promise ring” because it sounded too girly or something, but my “someday” ring to act as a pretty placeholder 🙂 People think it’s an engagement ring a lot (understandably) but I just tell them it’s keeping the spot warm for my dream ring! If I have a daughter someday, I want her to have it. Seems like a good reminder of our love.
It was given to me on our 2 year anniversary. We were promising ourselves to one another. We weren’t ready for marriage then, we were so young and having fun, but we knew that we wanted to get married and have kids together one day.
I don’t have a picture of it, but this is the picture on the website.
Here’s one from an old relationship:
My SO isn’t really much of a jewelry person. If I asked, his response would probably be that I should just wait for an engagement ring because he’s planning on proposing within about a year or so and it’s something he’d see as pretty pointless.
I actually sometimes wear the old one on my right hand when I want a little bit of sparkle (it looks pretty dull in the picture– bad lighting– but it’s actually pretty sparkly in normal light). It was given to me 5+ years ago and the ex and I are on good terms but don’t really talk much anymore, so by now it doesn’t really have any special emotional significance. It’s just a piece of jewelry, so I don’t feel bad wearing it.
I love promise rings. I got this one on my 18th birthday. Mine is in my favourite color, shape, and the halo I love but didn’t want in my future engagement ring. (Amythyst/white gold) I like it because no one could confuse it for an engagement ring. My RHR now. sorry, picture sucks, it isn’t anything fancy but I love it
what finger did you guys wear your promise ring on? I wore mine on my left but in hindsight, aren’t you supposed to wear it on your right?
He gave me this as a promise to get married, when we’re older and have more money for a wedding. Its his birthstone and what was supposed to be mine, but looks more pink. Oh well, I love it, so I didnt want to send it back.
My promise ring has always been a sign that my boyfriend promised to love me and cherish me until the day that he could one day ask me to marry him. For us it did symbolize that we were going to get married someday. He wanted to make sure that he had a good job and completed his GED before asking me. This looks just like my ring! I LOVE it so much.
mine is on the right 🙂 aquamarine. its my something blue for my wedding day
My Fiance gave me my promise ring on valentines day 2009…it is a saphire stone which is his birthstone and my fave color. He gave it to me and said that he promised to be true to me and that one day he will put a real ring on my finger…2years and 4 months later he purposed to me. My promise ring will be my something blue at our wedding 🙂
