Answer this question

  • What is the meaning behind promise rings ?


Answer #1 | 20/12 2013 05:10
it means nothing and to me seems kind of insulting.
Answer #2 | 20/12 2013 05:52
It means whatever he wants it to mean. It could meanI promise to get engaged for marriage someday, or it could just mean I promise to remain faithful to you, or it could just be a generic symbol if his love for you and he may not actually be promising you anything. Usually when the ring is given, the guy explains what it means to him.

You Both make a promise and you keep it eternally :)

I agree with Deziner. You should trust him in in what the ring means. It could mean every romantic things. ^^

It means he promises to marry you SOMEDAY, but isn't willing to propose to you yet.

I don't think they're "pre-engagement rings" they're just a good way for two people that don't want to get married to show they're committed. Loyalty ring.

An engagement ring represents a promise to get married. A promise ring represents a promise to someday get engaged, in other words a promise to someday make another promise. Completely pointless of course, but a stroke of genius on behalf of the jewelry industry. Kids in middle school keep falling for it, that's for sure. I'd say if you are no longer in your teens and have been together long enough to know that you are each other's "the one", why not just get engaged?

A Promise Ring means that when you accept the ring, you promise to be together forever. Kind of like "Engaged to be engaged". It's a little bit like an Engagement Ring, but you don't have to wear it on your Left ring finger, you can wear it on your Right hand on your ring finger. BOTTOM LINE, a Promise Ring is a ring you give to someone that you WANT to Marry, but can't at the moment for some reason, so the Promise Ring has the same message that a Wedding Band Has "Together Forever". There's your answer. CONGRATS!!!! :)
