Promise rings are used as a promise of a future marriage, a friendship, a devotion to God, or even a promise to remain abstinent from sex before marriage. Most couples that use promise rings have been together for a short time but are not quite ready to become engaged. Couples that are separated by distance or military deployment often use promise rings to uphold the bond they share. Promise rings are also commonly given to someone to show that they promise to be completely monogamous to their partner. Those who willfully choose sexual abstinence may wear a promise ring or a purity ring to symbolize their declaration. You may even find that friends will still give each other a promise or friendship ring as a promise of the friendship lasting forever.
Whatever reason there may be for giving a promise ring, there are countless choices available to symbolize such a sacred promise. A simple, modest design with a heart can convey the giver’s promise to love the person to whom it is given. A double heart design symbolizes two hearts coming together as one.
For the person or couple that has devoted themselves to sexual purity before marriage, choose a ring inscribed with the perfect message: True Love Waits. A couple promising to save themselves for each other in marriage could have their names engraved on the ring as a public declaration of their vow. Similarly, a ring with a Christian cross demonstrates a devotion to God and a promise to remain devoted.
Finally, a promise ring can be given as a token of everlasting friendship. Giving a friendship ring to a BFF can help express feelings of deep sentiment, companionship and loyalty. An Irish Claddagh ring features the symbol of love, friendship and loyalty.
A promise ring is a loving token of faithfulness and assurance, no matter if it’s to a future spouse, a best friend, a divine being, or to one’s self.
