A promise ring, or a claddagh ring, in pop culture today is often given by a boyfriend to a girlfriend as a symbol of love. These rings were around before Buffy the Vampire Slayer (which made it really popular...not that I watched the show lol), and they were originally used as even wedding rings. Sometimes the rings are given with a promise today, or are just given. Either way, it's a rather sweet thing to give and have.
I've seen most females with a promise ring being worn on their left ring finger, hence their wedding finger. I'm wondering how you all feel about this? I mean it's a sweet guesture, and it is said that the left ring finger has a vein that goes straight to the heart...but do you all think that it is entirely...how shall I say this...proper to place it on such a finger when it's technically not a wedding ring? I'm not saying that it's a bad thing to do, but I'm wondering if perhaps the lover in question (that gave the ring) would feel uncomfortable about it? I don't know.
Plus, I might be the only person that thinks this, but I think it feels rather weird to wear a ring on your wedding finger! lol.
I'm also asking this because my boyfriend just gave me a promise ring (I'd been wearing one before on a non-ring finger, but I'd bought it for myself, and I just gave him the old one for him to keep), and it fits both my ring fingers. I'm not sure of his opinion on the subject yet, but I thought this whole thing might be interesting to talk about.
