Call them what you want – promise rings, pre-engagement rings, commitment rings – these rings represent the love and dedication you hold for one another whilst you’re dating. If you still have reservations about gifting your significant other a promise ring, we’re here to give you the entire lowdown.
All About The Promise Ring
As the name implies, a promise ring is a ring that’s exchanged when two individuals promise to commit to one another. This tradition dates back to the Late Middle Ages where men gave their romantic interests posy rings (rings that are inscribed with romantic phrases) as tokens of love. Nowadays, it often symbolises a declaration of monogamy, especially if the two parties have been dating for quite some time.
Not to be confused with engagement rings, the exchange of promise rings may not carry any intention of a marital union, should the couple wish it. Promise rings can serve as mementoes when a couple wishes to commit domestic partnership, regardless if marriage is on the line. Despite it all, their significance shouldn’t be understated. More often than not, most couples will only gift promise rings once they’ve decided to be exclusive to one another. Whether that takes a few months or even years, the time frame differs from one couple to another.
Which Finger Should A Promise Ring Be On?
Most Western cultures state that both the engagement and wedding rings will sit on the ring finger on the left hand, for it was believed that this finger has a vein running directly to the heart. However, with a promise ring, you can wear it on whichever finger you feel most comfortable with.
That said, it’s worth remembering that should you wish to wear it on the ring finger, others may get confused and assume your marital status. If you want to avoid talks about marriage and the like, it’s best to wear this stunning ring on your other digits.
How Much Should You Spend On A Promise Ring?
As with any ring purchases, there are no strict rules to abide by when it comes to figuring how much you should fork out when purchasing a promise ring. Those with a budget can opt for simple yet elegant design, whilst those who can enjoy more allowance can afford to add a little more sparkle.
Those who wish to revel in the best of both worlds can still do so with lab grown diamonds! These diamonds, whilst differ in origin, possess identical optical, chemical and physical attributes carried by mined diamonds. Better yet, they are also 40% less expensive than earth mined diamonds of comparable quality and size!
