What pretty rings and nice stories. I never heard of promise rings before these boards and then believed them to be a high school sort of thing but l see that there are other , adult situations. And who doesn’t want an extra  ring !

@alhena:  congrats! Lovely ring and meaning.

This was my promise ring. Nearly 6 years later and we’re legally married (wedding postponed due to COVID-19). 

Promise rings can truly be a sign of commitment!!

@alhena:  What a beautiful ring, and it looks beautiful on your finger, too. It is so sweet and romantic, and I love how much thought your SO put into it. I am wishing you and your sweetheart all the best luck for getting through your LDR. It sounds like you both have a strong relationship and connection, so I think the time until you can see each other again will fly by. Before you know it, you will be together!

My husband and I were long distance for 3 years when we were engaged. And then, we were long distance again for almost a year shortly after we got married. It was a challenging time, but it made our relationship stronger, in the end.

This is my promise ring. I still have it, but I don’t wear it any longer. It’s still really sentimental to me. My now-husband gave it to me when we first started dating in college. We will celebrate our 22nd anniversary this coming October.

Your ring is beautiful, I love the start shaped cz! I bought a star shaped amethyst not so long ago.

I’m a bit of a space enthusiast and I recently saw a gold bracelet with all kinds of different stones representing the solar system. I really hope to buy it one day!

@alhena:  I love your ring!  I think it is gorgeous and I love the sentiment behind it!

DH and I are a long distance success story!  DH and I were long distance for 2 1/2 years (which included 10 months of marriage) and only saw eachother maybe a total of 6 weeks in those 2 1/2 years.  Sounds crazy, but we made it work!

@alhena:  Really?? That’s so cool! I only discovered my interest in space in the last few years, prior to that I didn’t really know anything about it (I’m gonna blame the religous school my parents sent me to, lol) and I was so amazed by it.

Last year we visited Canada and went to the dark night festival. We looked at the telescopes (although it was a bit cloudy at the time to see anything out of the ordinary), saw some meteorites, was super fun. 

Anyways! I really hope to get the bracelet at some point. It’s quite expensive so I always postpone it because I buy other things here and there. Here are the stones the jeweler said she used to create it:

Mercury as a 2.5mm rosecut moonstone

Venus as a 3mm andalousite

Earth as a 3mm cabochon moonstone

Mars as a 2.5mm garnet

Jupiter, carved in 14K gold

Saturn, carved in 14K gold

Uranus as a 4mm amazonite

Neptune as a 4mm star sapphire

Pluto and her largest moon, Charon as two 1mm diamonds

I actually have 2 promise rings because my now husband bought me one back in highschool that unfortunately got damaged so he got me a new one a little later. Unfortunately I don’t have any pictures of the first one but this was the second, which I wore up until we got engaged 😊

I got him a promise ring too, and here they are together

after we got married I got a picture of my promise ring, engagement ring, and wedding ring all together

@alhena:  I just saw your response!  Sorry for the delay!  And yes, it’s totally worth it!  The time apart is hard and isn’t the greatest, but there are special moments in the distance as well!
