I’m a fellow waiting bee just like you, but I haven’t seen any posts on here to give love for our promise rings. I have had mine for 3 years in December. Lets post some of our own bling to tide us over while we wait for our “upgrades”.
Here’s the stock photo:
Here’s what I’m hoping for as my “upgrade”:

I love that you started this thread! I feel like promise rings get a little bit snubbed sometimes!
Here’s mine! I’ve had it since July 2010.

These look beautiful – I was given a promise ring in my last long term relatonship, let’s just say didn’t ask for one this time round as it was an unfulfilled promise – so I didn’t have much faith in them after that 🙁
Hopefully with my e-ring nearly paid off by my SO, I shouldn’t think I will be getting one.

My promise ring aka my birthday present that I got in February. I would have been happy with this as an engagement ring.

How pretty ladies! Mine is pretty simple, but I love it so much 🙂 I wear it on my right hand now since I’m engaged but when I’m not able to wear my e-ring, I’ll switch it over to my left hand!

Mine’s a simple band that I wear on my right hand–channel set diamonds and sapphires. I’ve had it for 2.5 years now–can’t wait for my e-ring to get here 🙂

@teacherandageek: I LOVE that ring. I actually really wanted something like that as an engagement ring, but Fiance wanted to do something more traditional.

This is my “promise ring.” SO bought it for my when we were in Mexico in June. He was so upset that he wasn’t able to propose on our trip – after explaining to him for the billionth time that I did not need a big, expensive diamond we went to the jewlery shop in the resort. Naturally, since I wear a size 8, we couldn’t find anything that he would consider to be an acceptable engagement ring that actually fit. So I found this beautiful filagree Mexican silver ring and SO bought it. I’d wear it on my left ring finger, but it looks too similar to a wedding band, and I didn’t want to constantly be barraged with those questions. I wear it on the middle finger of my left hand, so it’s as close to my “engagement finger” as possible.
Edit: Holy huge picture!!!!! I tried to resize it, but obviously it didn’t work!
