Your fellow Summoners are absolutely correct! When you play normal or custom games, only your rewards/tier achieved in 5v5 Ranked Solo queue is displayed around your character as a border. For further clarification, Yegg made a detailed FAQ found in General Discussion regarding Season 2 rewards. Your direct question can be found in his FAQ here:
I had five wins with a Platinum 3v3 Ranked Team. Why don't I have a Platinum border in normal games?
Ranked games show the border that you earned in that particular queue. All other game modes show the border that was achieved in the Ranked Solo queue.
I hope this alleviates some confusion!
