The Meaning Behind Promise Rings

Posted on Wednesday, January 2nd, 2019 at 3:18 pm by Emily

With many couples choosing to date longer before marrying, promise rings have become a popular choice for couples pledging their love. An engagement ring is a symbol of a couple’s plans to marry, but what if you’re not ready for a marriage? A promise ring is a personal and meaningful way to show your devotion without committing to marriage just yet.

There is no one meaning of a promise ring. The most common meaning is the promise of an engagement in the future. It doesn’t necessarily have to mean you’ll get married. It could simply be a symbol of your relationship and a sign to others that you are devoted to each other. It could also be a way to stay committed if you’re in a long-distance relationship.

 Why would I give a promise ring?

 There are many scenarios in which you might give your significant other a promise ring.

  • The start of a long-distance stint in your relationship
  • To symbolize your relationship as a couple
  • As a promise of an engagement in the future
  • When you know they’re the one, but you’re not ready to get married
  • If you want to save up more money for an engagement ring

What do I say when I give a promise ring?

Because there are so many different reasons to give a promise ring, it’s important to be very clear when you gift it. Think about what the ring means to your relationship. Does it mean you want to get married eventually? If so, make sure you say that out loud to your significant other. Is the promise ring simply a way to symbolize your relationship? Let them know what it means to you and your future as a couple.

You might say something like, “I’m excited to see what we accomplish together. Every year we continue to grow as a couple and as individuals. I love you and I want to give you this ring as a promise of our future together. Even if we’re living apart for a while, I know this is temporary and that we will end up together in the end.
