When Should You Give a Promise Ring?
Posted on June 21 2016
You find a person, we’ll help you find a promise ring Not everyone is ready to take the plunge into marriage, but that doesn’t mean they should hold back from purchasing a promise ring for their loved one. “A promise of friendship with the desire to let it grow into an engagement of marriage.” I think this statement describes the best what a promise ring or pre-engagement ring truly symbolizes. However, it can be given for many different reasons – as a symbol of chastity, loyalty, monogamy, friendship or even a promise to oneself to stay clean or sober. Often times that friendship comes at an age where one has many large decisions left in their life, whether it to be the path to take after high school, or their first career right after college. At this point, financially or mentally, you might not be ready to make a lifetime commitment yet, but know that when the time is right, you do want to spend your life with that person. This purchase and process can still cause nervousness, as questions like “What is her ring size?”, “Is now the right time?”, “Will she even like it or wear it?”, go through one’s head. You are also mentally preparing yourself for a bigger purchase in the future.
When is the right time to give a promise ring?
If you are a young couple and not in a strong enough financial position to get married a promise ring may be ideal. If you had been in a relationship for 6 months to 1 year, these are normally large anniversary dates in a young couple’s relationship where this type of commitment is normal. If you have had serious conversations about your future together, perhaps a promise ring is the next step.
What to do to prepare ?
Pick a date that is important for both of you. Pick a significant location–a restaurant, where you had your first date, or a place with happy memories. Get her ring size. You can consider measuring her other rings or ask family and friends to help, in order to keep it as a surprise.
What are some examples of promise rings?
You can choose a plain band or a ring with gemstones, like her birthstone, for example. You can choose a tiny diamond solitaire as well. We are also willing to design or custom make a ring for you by adding special elements, such as engraved messages or unique, significant decorations. Consider engraving the same promise you will make verbally for instance.
