What is a promise ring?
A promise ring can also mean that you promised yourself to, for example, achieve your dream or your dream job or to break a bad habit.
Promise ring vs Engagement ring
As known, the engagement ring is given after the proposal, and it symbolizes that you want to spend the rest of your life with your loved one.
The meaning of the promise ring is highly individual. The aim may vary, and sometimes only the two people know what the purpose is. As said, the purpose is very personal, but very often, it represents love and commitment. It also signifies the desire for their future and prosperity.
Promise rings are popular for couples that don’t necessarily need to label their relationship and want to promise that someday, they may not be “just” girlfriends and boyfriends. For those couples, the ring is just a symbol of their love and partnership.
On which finger do you wear a Promise ring?
The most common way of wearing a promise ring is on the ring finger of your left hand if you are not married and on the ring finger of your right hand if you are married.
As said, a promise ring can be worn on any finger, and the trendy way is to wear it on your little finger. Pinky promise rings are often very delicate and minimalistic, making them suitable for someone who doesn’t wear jewellery that often and is more comfortable with small and simple jewellery.
Promise ring styles
The band is usually made out of metal, but some prefer wood promise rings with engraved initials or any personal sign. Yellow gold, white gold and sterling silver are trendy for promise rings. Rose gold promise rings or platinum rings are not that usual but gorgeous and unique and may fit the partner more.
Because promise rings are infinity symbols and a symbol of commitment, motifs like an infinity symbol and hearts are often used, giving your promise ring a minimalistic look.
Men Promise Rings
When you think of wedding rings, you usually think of a man giving a ring to a woman. But promise rings for men are not that unusual as you would think. These rings are usually bigger, simpler and without diamonds and gemstones.
