I am so sorry for all the bs you’ve gone through. I think buying a promise ring or something that you love to wear on your hand is fabulous. However, keeping it real, I wouldn’t wear it on my left hand. It looks like a wedding ring.

Why is a ring from a man full of lies ok to wear but a ring that symbolizes a promise to treat yourself right and know your self-worth silly? Your friend is absolutely wrong in my opinion. Your ring is beautiful and it isnt there to remind you of him, it’s there so you remember to think of you. As the bees say… Haters gonna hate. Wear your ring proudly.

It is not silly that you have self respect… Your friend’s comment wasn’t well thought out. 

But I would call it a cluster ring, although I’m not an expert on this stuff.

I wouldn’t consider it a cluster ring because its not smaller center stones of the same shape formed together as the center, but it’s not a solitaire either. I also suggest wearing it on your right hand. Wearing on your left, especially the style of ring it is, mimics an engagement ring. If you truly want to come to terms, why not leave that finger bare for a while?

It’s an illusion setting

It isn’t foolish at all. I always buy myself a little something sparkly after a breakup. I’m starting to look like Elizabeth Taylor over here. It’s a beautiful ring and I think I’d call it a “cluster”.

I can’t really see the ring, so I’m not sure. I’m guessing it’s a cluster.

I wouldn’t choose to wear it, personally. If you are having problems with other workers hitting on you at work, then you should talk to your HR department about sexual harassment. A woman should not have to pretend to be engaged so she can work in peace. And if that doesn’t work, consider talking to a lawyer.

I hope you acheieve all of your life goals. When is your graduation date?

I’d call it a halo or cluster ring.

Wear what you want. I get that people would think wearing something that looks like marital bling on that finger could be more bittersweet, but, hey, we mark all kinds of life events with jewelry. I know that I do. I bought myself a promise ring after a break up years ago. I found one that I liked when we went e-ring shopping. He didn’t like it. He ended up dumping me. I went back and bought the thing. I enjoy it to this day. Sure, I’ve thought about breaking it apart to make new pieces out of it. Maybe one day. But it still marks a time in my life where I acted in my best interests. Boom.

Cyber hug to you, Bee!

thumperbear:  ditto!

And OP, wear it on your left hand all you want until you’re ready to move it. You’re in a grieving process. Do what makes you happy. ❤❤❤

luckyladylaterinlife35:  It’s a halo, not illusion because the stones around the center diamond are obviously different shapes and it clearly isn’t meant to look like one large diamond. It’s has  smaller diamonds but their different shapes n sizes that look like design elements so it’s not a typical cluster. 

The center diamond is much larger and is the focal point.  So halo!  It’s very pretty!
