I personally think it’s for younger girls. FI gave me mine when I was 19, he was 20. It was a “I promise to be with you forever but we’re too young to marry right now” kinda thing. So I think for older couples who are buying a ring and have their lives in order, it should just be an engagement not a promise.

Personally, I think of promise rings as being for high school kids. My ex-boyfriend gave me a promise ring when we were 16, so maybe that’s why I view it that way.

I thought promise rings didn’t make any damn sense even when I was in high school, so I definitely don’t think they make sense for adults!

When I hear of promise rings, I associate them with young girls.  I don’t quite understand them, but I don’t think there’s anything wrong with the idea either.

I have always thought that they were for younger girls. Which I think is kind of cute and sweet in it’s own way. Then again I also feel that a promise ring is what someone gives the other to make them STFU already about wanting to get engaged.

I just wanted a promise ring to show people where I worked that i DID have a boyfriend.  Now they know I’m engaged, but I just felt like I needed to show I was taken already.

Definitely younger girls (highschool age).

For any age.

No matter what age, a promise to be together is still a promise; a ring to go with that promise is really nice.

I never understood the point of a promise ring. To me they make no sense.

i’ve only ever had 1 promise ring.  i was 16 i think. 

i never really thought about if promise rings are for just young girls.  i suppose they don’t have to be.

Darling Husband gave me a promise ring for our first anniversary. We were 22, and I wore it up until the day he proposed which was just shy of my 26th birthday. We do consider my ering to be the “upgrade” of my promise ring. So I guess, if you want you could call it my original ering and we just had a really really long engagement. Since we committed to marrying each other when he gave me the promise ring, just like you do with an ering.

So to me a promise ring and an ering seem to be the same thing. Except that with a promise ring an upgrade is expected? I dunno..just my 2 cents.

@BrittanyE:  I’ve always thought of them as rings for younger girls. I don’t think there’s anything wrong w. wearing a ring on your left hand from your SO that is a pre-engagement ring of sorts, though. I guess it’s just terminology, but I always think teenagers when I hear the term ‘promise ring’.
