  • In recent years, Matching Rings For Couples have experienced a rise in popularity. However, with it comes plenty of confusion as to what a jewelry ring actually is and what exactly it's meant to mean. With a long history that dates all the way back to Romans the promise ring has had several different versions and each one has a different meaning. That's why we'll be breaking down all you need to know about promise rings: their meaning, their purpose and what finger it's on, how they're exchanged and much more.




    Promise rings have taken on various forms throughout the history of mankind. From the Romans couples were required to wait for a specific amount of time prior to their wedding ceremony. During that period, Romans gave simple rings to show their engagement.


    In the late Middle Ages, the posy band was popular. The posy ring enhanced the romance and affection of lovers. The ring's inscription was with a brief poetic expression that was written often in Latin or French. Common phrases include "united heart, death only separates" or "love overcomes everything".


    The acrostic promise ring was a more elaborate version of the traditional promise ring. It appeared during the Georgian period, and gained popularity until the Victorian period. The rings were made with gemstones that were arranged so that the initial letters of each gemstone's name spelled out the unique message. In this case, putting ruby, emerald, garnet amethyst diamond in a row spells "REGARD."




    What's the purpose behind the Promise Ring?


    Promise rings are a symbol of love and, in a larger sense, commitment, fidelity and endurance. Although the meaning of promise rings can differ from couple-to-couple, they're usually a sign of commitment and exclusivity.


    Often, promise rings will serve as placeholder rings when a couple is waiting on wedding or a promise of a future together when couples have to separate due to a geographic distance. Promise rings can also be an excellent way to show loyalty and devotion for couples who are engaged but aren't planning on marriage.

    How to wear a Promise Ring


    Promise rings can be placed anywhere on the finger, however there are a few common options. The ring finger or middle finger of the left hand, or the middle or fourth finger of the right hand are popular options. A promise-ring can be worn as a prelude for the engagement ring. It could be put on a necklace, or moved to your right hand.

    What is a Promise Ring an Engagement Ring?


    While a promise ring may be a serious signal but it's not an engagement ring, nor is it a promise of marriage as an engagement ring connotes. Engagement rings are presented with the promise of marriage, which is why they are called "engagement" signalling the beginning of the process toward a wedding and marriage.


    It's also essential to make sure that you distinguish the giving of a promise ring and a possible proposal of marriage with an engagement ring. It's crucial to distinguish between promises ring and marriage proposal that could require massive gestures.

    How do you present someone with a A Promise Ring?


    A promise ring is usually traded or given out on occasions of special significance. Consider birthdays, holidays or other special occasions for anniversaries in the relationship. You can give them whenever you feel it's appropriate.


    When you do give or exchange promise rings, it's a great idea to talk about the significance of the ring to you in terms of the near future. It's a great time to talk about how your relationship can develop in the near future, if wedding is in the near future.

    What's the appearance of a Promise Ring?

It is crucial to stay within a budget when planning for a wedding and also an engagement rings.


    A few promise rings are reminiscent of the past through simple engravings, or use of gemstones. For a little design inspiration We've gathered a few of our favorites.


    Simple bands are always an elegant and beautiful way to select a vow ring. Select a ring that has a twisting or a coming together of pieces to represent the merging of individuals. This design is stunning for the Karli band, which is a modern and smooth appeal. It looks great in Selene for its naturalistic sculptured style.
