Oh I love it! I had a promise ring. Unfortunately I lost it. We think either to a drain or vacuum. One day it was on the shelf, the next day it was forever gone!m ๐Ÿ™ My promise ring was a simple 3 stone 1/4 diamond ring.

mine was an aquamarine that Fiance gave me in high school. It was a promise to be faithful to each other, to be hoest, committed, all that good stuff ๐Ÿ™‚ 

People seem to be suspicious of promise rings and don’t see the point. I thought it was sweet. I didn’t want to be engaged at 17, but it was nice ot have a symbol of our commitment and something to remind me of him while I’m away at college.

To me, an engagement ring is a promise ring. I don’t understand promising to promise something later down the line.

I do think your ring is beautiful, I just never got the point.

Yeah I don’t get the point really either.  A guy I was dating in college gave me one.

I have one!  My fiance gave it to me 6 months into our relationship but too early to be engaged.  It was a promise of engagement since before then he was seriously considering the Catholic priesthood.  It was sort of a reassurance that he would continue our relationship.

EDIT: I should add that I gave one to my Fiance as well.  He still wears his but people always assume he’s married when they see it.

I don’t see the point.  I suppose that if you are very young it may have some sentimental value but for people who are old enough and wanting to be married it kind of feels like “I promise to promise to marry you”.

When I was a teenager, my high school sweetheart gave me a pearl promise ring. Of course, obviously it meant more to me than to him, because he started or continued (not sure which) to cheat on me after he gave it to me.  I still have it.

I believe that it depends on the couple. You two can make it stand for what ever you want it to stand for. My Fiance got me one about a year and a half into dating. I loved it, I cried when he gave it to me. We were too young to be engaged and just not ready for that quite yet and we were living 3000 miles apart from each other. To us it meant that he promises no matter how far apart the military takes him from me he’ll always love me, respect me, and be loyal. And of course a promise to get married one day. 

I wore that ring every day for 3 years until this last march when we proposed ๐Ÿ™‚

My boyfriend got me one a few years ago.  We were long distance so it was a promise that he would do his best to communicate with me daily and that he wanted to make it work so we would be together in one location in the future.  Now we moved from the East Coast, are living together and are getting ready to upgrade that ring Wink  (disregard my nail polish all over my finger, usually I bite my nails so when I grew them out a while ago, I wasn’t very good at painting them… lol)

Promise rings are sweet, but they seem far removed from real marriage to me.  I’ve never known a grown up to have one.
