In a time where courtship – the period of dating – is longer than ever, couples can get frustrated with the lack of ritual and progression. The exchange of promise rings is a way for a couple to commemorate a transition in their relationship without the greater pressures of engagement.
Promise or pre-engagement rings may seem like an invention of the modern jewelry business. In fact, they have been around since the 16th century, when they would be exchanged by couples too young to wed.
Thinking of getting your own beloved a promise ring? Think out of the box! Unlike engagement rings, which are commonly hold a diamond, a promise ring can be anything you can imagine. In fact, if you are planning to invest in a diamond engagement ring later on, you may prefer to get a promise ring with a different kind of stone, setting, or style.
To make your promise ring more unique and personal, you can choose to engrave
it with your names, your anniversary date or a special message of love and dedication. Celtic style
Promise rings are also a popular choice.
Personalize the ring with your birthstones
or favourite gemstones to turn it into a totally unique and meaningful keepsake.
Promise Rings are not just for women. Today, many couples are showing their dedication by purchasing a Promise Ring for him
and for her.
