A little bit of history about promise rings
Surprisingly, promise rings date back several hundred years. Keeping this tradition alive makes the meaning behind gifting promise rings even more special.
Dating back as far as the Victorian Era, some rings were found with words engraved in gemstones, and some were found with poems engraved on them around the 16th century in England.
Especially in historical times, those promise rings were seen as a sign of loyalty and fidelity, since some lovers did not have the ability to be with each other for long periods of time due to long travels or wars.
What is a promise ring and why should you get one ?
A promise ring is a promise made to each other. A promise of unconditional love that you want to show off to the world! It is a way to express your commitment to each other, your loyalty and fidelity through the gift of a ring. It is an eternal symbol of love.
Imagine you are in a relationship with someone and you want to commemorate your love, you want to make your other half feel special, and find a way to show and express your love to each other in the most meaningful way. You are not ready yet to get engaged and married or maybe you don’t even believe in marriage, but you are so close to that next step in your relationship and you want to express that feeling with an action. This is where you make the decision to gift a promise ring.
Just to make it clear, a promise ring is not a purity ring. A purity ring is a ring that can be worn without being in a relationship. It is a promise to yourself, but could also be to your partner if ever in a relationship, that you will abstain from any sexual activities until marriage.
In addition, a promise ring is not only a gift that can be gifted to only your lover, but to your best friend as well! It is a beautiful meaningful gift to give to someone special in your life that you cherish and love. It represents the promise that no matter what happens, you got each other’s back. It’s a beautiful and rare kind of love that is being represented by a meaningful gesture.
Is there a specific style of promise rings and can men wear one too?
You can gift whatever style of ring you want and the price is to your discretion, it is up to you! A promise ring is a symbol, therefore it does not need to cost an arm and a leg.
You can get matching rings as well, so you both have one, since both men and women can wear one. Personally I find that having a matching one with your partner makes it more fun. As if you are both connected through the jewellery. We have a few pretty amazing styles of matching rings that bind into each other. Promise rings for men have become extremely popular since many celebrity couples have been gifting and wearing promise rings, for example we have Ryan Reynolds & Blake Lively, J.Lo & Ben Affleck, Kylie Jenner & Travis Scott and many more.
What finger should you wear a promise ring on?
It does not matter which finger the person decides to wear it on, it is the meaning behind it that matters, and that special connection that you will both share. Some people might want to wear it on their left hand finger, usually this is the finger you wear your wedding ring on, simply because there is a vein that runs directly through this finger to the heart. At the end of the day, it is entirely up to you.
