A pre-engagement ring, or promise ring, is a tangible symbol of meaningful commitment and can take on many different meanings. Defined as a declaration or assurance that one will do a particular thing, or that a particular thing will happen, a promise is special. The general theme around these symbolic rings is that they represent a promise from one person to the other.
What is a Promise Ring?
More Than a Romantic MilestoneContrary 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, the ring is a promise of a future together. Given as a commitment of love, a pre-engagement ring represents the intention of getting engaged eventually.
For those who don't necessarily want to get married, a promise ring is a perfect way to show eternal love for one another. A promise ring is what you make of it. 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.

Pre-Engagement Rings vs. Engagement RingsThe main difference between pre-engagement rings, or promise rings, and engagement rings is that one leads to another. Promise rings are often given before an engagement ring as the first major step to a lasting commitment.
One thing to note, though, is that some promise rings also work as engagement rings! Our selection includes diamond promise rings and other captivating designs that could be interchangeable for an engagement ring.
When and How to Give a Promise RingDepending 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, promise rings make unique gifts for birthdays or holidays. For romantic relationships, you have a few options.
Preparation is key to making the presentation of your ring extra special. A pre-engagement ring is a big step in a relationship and should be celebrated accordingly. As far as when to give a promise ring, that will be different for everyone. A day that is meaningful to your relationship, such as Valentine's Day or an anniversary, is an obvious choice.
