The Meaning of Promise Ring
Promise rings meaning are not spoken about anywhere near as much as engagement rings. It signifies a different moment altogether – and one that will inevitably change from one starry-eyed couple to the next.
What are Promise Rings?
A promise ring is a ring that is typically given as a “promise” of future engagement. Maybe you’re ready to take a big step but not quite ready for an engagement yet – or maybe you’re saving for an engagement ring but want to show your commitment in the meantime.
They symbolize love and devotion to your significant other. Promises have been used throughout history and have seen a resurgence in recent years
History of the Promise Ring
The promise ring can be traced back to the “fede” ring, a piece of jewelry that represented a trust agreement, or contract, between two people. It is distinguished by the pattern of joined hands known as “mani in fede,” or “hands in trust.” In the Middle Ages, this type of ring continued to be exchanged, particularly as a sign of romantic commitment.
Today, the promise ring is particularly popular in the United States, where young people offer themselves this jewel as a symbol of their romantic relationship or friendship. Deep in meaning, this jewel has crossed the Atlantic and is the subject of gifts between boys & girls, men, and women who share common feelings and the same aspirations.
When is the Best Time To Give Promise Ring?
A promise ring, like an engagement ring, is given when your relationship has gone to the point where a deeper commitment is warranted. There is no set timeline for promise rings, but you might consider giving one on a special occasion, such as a birthday or anniversary, or even a holiday, such as Christmas or Valentine’s Day.
The same is true if you want to give a promise ring to a close friend. Select a time, day, or location that is meaningful to both of you.
What Finger Should a Promise Ring Be Worn On?
We’d suggest any finger except the left ring finger, or it will be confused for an engagement ring.
Following their engagement, some women prefer to wear their promise ring on a chain around their neck – or simply keep it as a special piece of jewelry.
Nobody wants the promise ring to be mistaken with – or a rival to – a future engagement ring. However, its significance must be reflected in a piece of jewelry that is both beautiful and valuable enough to last the rest of your lives together.
Do Men Wear Promise Rings?
Maybe you have heard about promise rings—or some of the other names they are known by. A pre-engagement ring or commitment ring.

2. Diamond Cluster
If a solitaire diamond is too much for your budget, think of a diamond cluster ring made of smaller stones. Various small diamonds set together are more reasonable than a solitaire.
Gemstones make beautiful options for diamonds and can be more reasonable. However, be wary of ‘soft’ gemstones, such as opal, which are easily broken or scratched, or gems that are easily damaged by water, such as pearls. They are not suitable for constant everyday use.
Rather choose a hardy gem, such as a blue sapphire, ruby, pink sapphire blue topaz, or amethyst.
Emerald, aquamarine and quartz rings feature gemstones with medium-hard toughness. They’re still very long-lasting but require slightly more careful wear.
4. Trilogy Rings
Three stone rings, called trilogy rings, represent the past, the present, and the future of a couple’s relationship.
The idea is based on the traditional Irish trinity knot ring. This romantic significance makes 3 stone rings perfect as promise rings. Are you three stone diamond ring lovers?
