You know the proposal is coming but to reassure yourself and help yourself be more patient, you wear a cheap fake looking ring that could pass for an engagement to help you get used to wearing one and tell yourself it’s coming eventually.

@katiecat08: I used to wear a ring on my right hand that looks an awful lot like my actual engagement ring (in fact when I sent my dad a pic of my ering he thought it was the same one). I did, on occasion, switch it to my left hand if I wanted someone to get the hint that I wasn’t interested.

Um no but i did switch my promise ring to my left hand for a few months just to make myself feel better that it wasn’t there yet – and help remind myself that i still had a good guy even if he was taking his sweet time. lol

No but I wear my promise ring on my left ring finger. It does make me feel better, even though it looks nothing like an engagement ring 🙂

I used to try on fake engagement rings just to see what it would look like to wear a ring on that finger.

no– but when my actual ring was getting resized i bought a cheap-o ring from Kohls to wear on my finger as a “place holder”

@katiecat08: No I have not! But until I do recieve an e-ring I don’t wear any rings because I don’t want there to be any confusion from other people. Once I do recieve it I probably will wear a ring on both ring fingers. I know its a completely stupid thought but if my SO wants people to know I am “taken” then he needs to take action! Poor guy def has his hand full with me!

@katiecat08: No, I didn’t.
But I did sometimes wear a ring on that finger on nights out; I found that for some reason men were quicker to leave me alone if I said ‘I’m engaged’ as opposed to ‘I have a boyfriend’. Weird, but, there you go!

Oh, I did not read the OP before voting.
I have not worn a fake engagement ring for that purpose, but did wear one when in India and was travelling alone, That was for reassurance of another kind.

I used to wear a ring on my left ring finger. It was a pear blue zircon that my father bought me when I was in middle school. I only wore it on my left ring finger because my right one was taken up with my class ring.
The blue zircon now lives on my right hand. I never wore it on my left to give the impression that I was married or engaged. In my many, many years of wearing it, I only had one comment on it being on my left hand, from a guy at work who was hitting on me. He asked me if it was an engagement or wedding ring, and I said no.
Truthfully, I never gave it a second thought. I think wearing fake engagement rings is a bit silly.

No, but I had a band my ex had gotten me for my birthday a few years ago and when I lost weight and it no longer fit safely on my middle finger, I wore it on my left ring finger. I moved it to my right when I met my FI but it was really tight there and now that I’m engaged I don’t wear it at all.

@katiecat08: NO I have never done this.
I actually wore a 5 stone sterling silver lab created white sapphire on my middle finger of my left hand….and one of my SO’s brothers stated that it looked like an engagement ring (really?!?)….and said it like it was a negative thing. Really hurt my feelings
Anyway, I’ve since stopped wearing it.
I’ve been saving up for a wedding etc etc….and I had a bad waiting day on Sat and I ordered a beautiful ‘lemon chiffon’ ring from Lia Sophia. It’s a right hand ring, but very pretty and should make me happy to have a ring of some sort for myself. LOL!

My grandmother passed away in 2011 and her jewlery was split up among her grandchildren. Even though I am not the oldest, I was fortunate enough to have been given her engagement ring and it meant so much to me to have. I took it this month to be professionally repaired (since the band was broken and the gold had become very dull). He did an excellent job in resizing it, adding more gold to the worn down prongs adding a gold support at the bottom and cleaning the diamond. I have been wearing it as a right hand ring since SO did not like the idea of recycling it into the engagement ring he gave me. I understood that he wanted me to wear something that came solely from him so I have been enjoying it on my right hand to admire each day and remember her. Kind of glad I didn’t reuse the stone or anything since now it is in its original setting and design as she wore it and it can hopefully be passed down as an heirloom to the women in my family.
