Promise rings are bestowed to symbolize a promise that one person makes to another. In some cases, promise rings are precursors to engagement rings. While the latter symbolize a promise to marry, promise rings can stand for many other kinds of vows.
Promise rings can mean: "I will be faithful to you" , "I will return to you" ,"I will keep you in my heart always" ,"My intention is to marry you one day" ,"We are best friends", "I will always be there for you”,” I love you”, "I will stay chaste until marriage". It can mean many things and is almost a free for all to decide for you.

Promise rings are not just for the ladies, there is no reason why men should not wear them. Ideally they should be worn on the left hand on the third finger, but it’s down to preference, the meaning will be made clear from the person who gave it to you, so which ever finger is comfortable. Plus it does save the confusion as to whether or not you are engaged or not. The thumb is always an option.
