Hmm…it looks like an engagement ring to me.  Not sure why people think otherwise.

your diamond is double the size of mine and no one ever thought it was anything other than an e-ring!  weird comments you are getting.

A half carat is too small for an engagment ring?? Maybe it is just me but my half carat looks pretty stinking amazing if I do say so myself. My mom’s was a  1/3, my grandma’s is about that too. Fiance mom doesn’t even have a diamond I don’t think. I know FIs grandma doesn’t have a diamond ring at all.

@dynamic_duo: Yeah, mine’s a third of a carat!  I would just keep correcting them, OP. It might be because you look really young or somehing (not that that’s too comforting either, sorry!), but your ring is gorgeous and definitely looks like an e-ring to me!

That’s really strange that people are making that comment… my ring is a half carat center stone, and no one has ever mistaken it for anything other than an engagement ring!

It looks like an e-ring to me!!

My DH (when were dating, after  3 years) got me this promise ring, and I still wear it (on my right hand now), I feel like this is more obvious looking as apromise ring because all 3 stones are the same size, only the middle one is slightly raised:

That sucks.  My guess is that it is almost entirely due to your age.

Wow.. that’s really odd.  Do you look a lot younger than you are?  Maybe it has more to do with that than with the ring… there’s no way I’d guess that a diamond of any size on a grown woman’s left ring finger was a promise ring.  :-/

I would have never thought it was a promise ring.
