What are Promise Rings?
Defined as a declaration or assurance that one will do a particular thing, or that a particular thing will happen, a promise is special. Promise rings are a tangible symbol of this meaningful commitment, and they can take on many different meanings. Promise ring meanings may vary, but the most basic answer to the question "what are promise rings" is that they represent a promise from one person to the other. Contrary to common belief, these promises don't have to just be between a romantic couple. Although that is the most popular use for them, a promise ring could symbolize a promise between friends, family members or other meaningful relationships. When given between significant others, a promise ring's meaning usually has to do with a future commitment. Often given before an engagement ring, a promise ring means that you want to fully commit yourself to that person, with the intention of getting engaged in the future. For those that don't necessarily want to get married, a promise ring could also be their way of showing their eternal love for one another. A promise ring is what you make of it, and the only two people who matter in a promise ring's meaning are the two people in the relationship, whether it's romantic or friendly.

Promise Rings vs. Engagement Rings
We mentioned that promise rings are often given before an engagement ring
as the first major step to an everlasting commitment, and really, that's the main difference between promise rings and engagement rings. One thing to note though, is that some promise rings also work as engagement rings! Our promise ring selection includes diamond styles and other captivating designs that not only look breathtaking as a promise ring, but some styles could be used as engagement rings instead!
When and How to give a Promise Ring
Depending on the relationship, and the promise ring meaning you want to convey, when and how to give a promise ring can vary. When it comes to a promise between friends, the best time to give the promise ring would be either when you two make the promise, or for a special holiday such as their birthday or Christmas. For romantic relationships, you have a few options. Like a proposal, we suggest you plan out how you're going to give the promise ring because they are a special step in your relationship. As far as when to give the promise ring, you could do it on a day that is meaningful to your relationship, such as Valentine's Day, a birthday, a special anniversary or as a gift for the holidays. For something a little more unsuspecting, you could choose a random day, take your partner to a nice dinner and give it as a gift. They won't suspect anything, and it will give you guys a new day to celebrate each year! It's now becoming increasingly popular for women to propose, and just the same, women can give men promise rings too! Whoever it is, when giving the promise ring, give it to them in a quiet place, so they can really soak in the meaning and it can be a special moment between just you two. SHOP MEN'S BANDS »
