Men's and Women's Promise Rings

A promise ring is a ring that signifies some type of promise between two people. They are most often exchanged between two young (or older) lovers to pledge their love for each other. The type of promise that the ring signifies can mean different things for different couples. For example, it can be a promise to your lover that you will propose someday. Maybe it’s a promise that you will never cheat, or a promise that even when times get hard, you will always be there for each other. The promise can differ greatly depending on the couple.

When to Give a Promise Ring

You simply want a way to express your love to your partner, maybe it can be an anniversary or birthday gift. You can’t afford an expensive ring now, but when you can, you know that you will gift one. You want to get married in the future, but for the time being, you are both too young and not financially ready. This can also be called a pre-engagement ring. You want to make a promise that you are ready for a commitment. This relationship means a lot to you and you want your partner to understand that.

Can Men Wear Promise Rings?

A common question that often gets asked is whether or not men can wear promise rings. The answer is - of course! There is no reason why men shouldn't wear promise rings. The meaning of promise rings worn by men is typically always the same meaning as the reason why a woman wears hers. The only difference would be the size and the weight of the men’s promise ring. Since men generally tend to take less care of their jewelry compared to women, their rings have to be sturdier and more durable. They also are plainer than women’s promise rings and usually don’t contain any stones on them, just metal. When both a man and a woman wear promise rings that have the same design on them, those rings are commonly called “promise ring pairs.”

Which Finger Should A Promise Ring Be Worn On

There is no specific finger that promise rings should be worn on. They can be worn on any finger, even the thumb. However, it’s always recommended to exclude the left ring finger and avoid wearing the promise ring there. This will completely eliminate any misunderstandings or misinterpretations, otherwise, it can be confused as an engagement ring or even wedding ring. Many couples choose to wear promise rings on matching fingers of their hands for addded significance. Couples oftentimes wear the promise ring on the left ring finger.
