I don’t have a promise ring.  I just feel like the one ring for me would be the engagement ring.  Though, I’ve been given a ring from the beau.  I just don’t consider it as a promise ring.  //  Yes, please show us a pic! Smile

@Lulume:  SO got me a ring for Christmas. Just meant to be a something sparkly. I  wear it on my right hand. But I admit I wear it no my left when I go to the gym as an attempt to deter men. But I completely understand your feelings towards your ring! I have those feelings myself sometimes!

I’m engaged now, but about a year into our relationship, Fiance bought me a “place holder” as he called it. Originially it was just going to be something pretty, then he suggested a diamond band. He said he was going to put an engagement ring there and he wanted to see how diamonds would look on that finger. lol.  We joked around about it, but I wore it on my left ring finger until it became too big. It meant something to both of us, not exactly a promise ring though.

I was wearing it on my middle finger the night we got engaged. In our pictures, I love how they are right next to each other.

I now wear it on a necklace.

No I don’t have one and honestly after 5 years together I would be offended if he gave me one. But that is just my opinion for me and my situation, not how I feel hearing about it being given to someone else. Everyone has different feelings towards promise rings.

I have one. Its beautiful and I love it.

My SO is into jewelry and has bought me a lot of rings.  This time was special because he told me that this was the last ring he was going to buy me before my engagement ring.

I have one, but he gave it to me at our first anniversary (almost 6 years ago!). I love mine, even when I get a little annoyed with waiting. I like to imagine how my hand will look once it’s an e-ring. Plus, it’s been a great fake engagement ring when the situation calls for it!

We started dating in 10th grade. Fiance gave me a promise ring in 12th grade.  I wore it for almost 8 years. 

On our 10 year anniversary he proposed!  I’m still getting used to feeling the ring on a different finger than my middle hahaha. =)

no, I would have hated that. we met when I was 30. I think that by that age, if a guy gives me a ring, it may as well be an engagement ring.  (no offense if anyone else is over 30, that’s just how I would feel for me.)

I can understand how promise rings could make sense if you are still really young, like in high school or college.  I wore matching “commitment rings” with a guy that I dated in college. we kind of viewed them as promise rings.

@janie-janie:  I feel the same way. SO and I are 35 and he mentioned getting a promise ring earlier this year. I gently let him know I appreciated the gesture but that he should be saving his money for my engagement ring. I think it was a way for him to buy himself a little time and i wasn’t good with that plan. LOL

No, I don’t.  If he’d given me one, I would have been very confused…because I doubt he knows what a promise ring is.  Besides, I’ve never wanted one.
