Clearing up the confusion between promise rings and engagement rings.

There are big and little differences between a promise ring and a ring . Some are material — just like the size of the diamond or gemstone and expense — and a few are emotional.

Simply put, you give or get an ring once you want to spend your lives together, after the proposal has been enthusiastically accepted. the explanations for giving and getting promise rings vary, and sometimes only the wearer and giver know what the promise is.

A couple things

What the promise ring symbolizes between couples is very individual, but most frequently it represents love and commitment. that would be a promise to someday become engaged at an unspecified time, perhaps after graduation, the top of a stint overseas or when it’s easier financially.

Promise rings are gaining popularity among couples which will not feel the necessity to place a label on their relationship or stick with a timetable. For them, a hoop is an outdoor symbol to people that move in together and haven't any immediate plans for marriage but are clearly during a committed relationship. If an ring comes along within the future, the promise ring often moves over to the other hand.

Other relationships

Promise rings are often exchanged between friends, pledging friendship forever. Promise rings can also tend by a parent to a toddler as how of claiming “I’ll love you forever.” Promise rings can also be referred to as purity rings, and represent a pledge of abstinence. they will be worn as a promise of anything, really, sort of a commitment to faith, to a goal, or a pledge to interrupt a nasty habit.

Other considerations

Promise rings typically are smaller and subtler than engagement rings, and should or might not be worn on the normal wedding ring finger. Diamonds are popular, but in smaller sizes or clusters, or with gemstones — usually the main target isn't on the diamond, but on the general design.

Metals, too, are often different. While 18K and 14K gold and platinum lead the way for engagement rings and wedding bands, 10K gold or alloy are cheaper and popular options for promise rings.

You’ll find a variety of motifs such as Crown, Princess and Knight or Entwined Branches rings.

Whatever the reason you want to give or get a promise ring, it’s a beautiful, tangible symbol of love and commitment.
