WHAT IS A PROMISE RING?
Promise rings symbolize the love and commitment between a couple. They’re given as a sign of a serious relationship and signify a commitment to be with one another in the future. When given, it’s an indication that the giver is willing to commit to the relationship. The acceptance of the ring is an acknowledgment that the feelings are mutual.
Although a Promise Ring may seem very similar to an Engagement Ring, it is completely different.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A PROMISE RING AND ENGAGEMENT RING?
An engagement ring is normally used for marriage proposal and a promise ring is often used by couple as a promise to remain faithful to each other.
Promise rings design are often less elaborate, they are similar to wedding bands. They can be found here.
Engraved promise rings with a message of commitment are very popular, making your promise rings more personal.
Both rings indicate a commitment, but the types of commitment they represent are entirely different. Let’s take a look at the most common promises couples make to each other.
Couples exchange promise rings when they are ready to commit fully to their significant half and to be in a monogamous relationship.
Promise of Marriage
They also exchange promise rings when they know that they want to marry their significant other one day. The gift of a promise ring indicates this intention. A promise ring tells your significant other that you envision a future with her.
WHICH HAND TO WEAR THE PROMISE RING?
A Promise Ring can be worn on any finger or on a chain around the neck. There are literally no rules for how and where Promise Rings should be worn. The significance behind the giving of the ring is far more important than where it appears on the body.
However, there are some common practices:
Ring Finger of the Left Hand
A promise ring is a promise of commitment that precedes an engagement. Therefore, many couples wear their promise ring on what is traditionally thought of as being the wedding ring finger -- the "ring finger" of the left hand. When engagement rings have been exchanged, the promise ring is then worn on another finger.
Ring Finger of the Right Hand
Some prefer to wear a promise ring on the right hand. This leaves the ring finger of the left hand ready for the exchange of engagement rings.
When it comes to answering the question "what finger do you wear a promise ring on" it is important to remember that there are no rules. The important part is the commitment that a couple is making to each other, not what finger the ring is worn on.
WHEN & HOW TO PRESENT THE PROMISE RING?
It isn’t a proposal. It can be given at any stage of the relationship.
Make the purpose of the ring clear.
While it is not intended for marriage proposal, it is a sign you are devoted to being committed to her and your romantic relationship.
Choosing Your Approach
Keep in mind that what you say should be sincere. Too much planning can sometimes result in a speech that sounds rehearsed and without emotion. Instead of writing a short speech, you might opt to write a few special words in a card. This also makes a lovely keepsake and reminder of the promises made.
Exchanging promise rings sometimes happens on the spur of the moment, and the romance of the occasion is going to outweigh any words that are said. In a setting like this, it's best to speak from your heart and express a few thoughts about what your partner and the rings mean to you.
Focus on the Promise and the Words Will Come
Giving a promise ring is a very special occasion, and what you and your partner say to each at that moment is an important part of it.
In fact, there is no promise that cannot be represented by a carefully chosen, thoughtfully given ring. As long as both the giver and the recipient are fully aware of what the ring represents, the unending circle of that ring can symbolize the unending commitment to that promise.
