The Ring Before The Ring

Posted by on Jan 26, 2012 in Featured, Guy's Guide | One Comment

With Valentine’s Day right around the corner we’ve got something on our minds: Promise Rings.

You can thank Joe Jonas and Robert Pattinson for this, but recently promise rings have become a popular gift. However, many people (including women) don’t even know what this ring means. We’re here to air out this allusive idea for anyone wondering – what’s with the ring, before the ring?

A promise ring is just what it sounds like, a ring given to symbolize a promise. While this is most commonly used as a precursor to an engagement, a promise ring can mean a lot of things depending on the status of your relationship.

A promise ring could say, “I will return to you,” for a lover who will be traveling or going over-seas.

It could say, “Here is my promise to replace this ring with a larger diamond someday,” for those who can’t yet afford an expensive engagement ring.

A promise ring could simply imply “I love you,” Or “You’re my best friend.”

To be very specific, the ring could be a promise to stop doing something (such as gambling, smoking or drinking.)

I am saving myself for you,” is also a common theme for those using the gift as a purity ring.

Promise rings are not for everyone, but if you feel that your relationship would benefit from this meaningful gift, then we are all for it. However, one thing is for certain: make sure you’re clear about your intentions before handing over a ring box. If not, you could be left with no girlfriend, instead of a happy one.

If you’re thinking of giving a promise ring, Valentine’s Day is a wonderful time to present this gift. Gemvara is offering free engraving until January 31st so take advantage and promise your loved one, “You will be my Valentine forever.”

    I think promise rings are great for young couples that cant afford to spend money for an Engagement Ring, but won’t that connect and bond.
