Promise rings are a great way to show your commitment to your loved one before you are ready to commit to an engagement. This is a great step for couple’s to take if they are about to embark on a long distance portion of their relationship or after they are tackling a new adventure in dating. Some couples use these promise rings to show how grateful they are for their partner’s support after a long year. Or as a thank you, for helping them through a tough time. It can even be used to show how grateful you are to your partner for the positive change they have created in your life.
Redefining What Commitment looks like
Marriage has evolved since the Victorian era where people married for only a few years, needed a dowry, and had unequal distribution of work in the home. Now, marriage is an option for men and women but not the only one. New found gender equality, evolving opportunities, and resource scarcity has made couples question the idea of marriage or put it off for a long time. Some new couples are looking for a new path in commitment and relationships and are forging ahead.
So how do you show your commitment to your partner without marriage? There are a lot of different options. One option is to set up a legal partnership to make sure that the other is taken care of in case of an emergency. Another way is to signify your commitment to each other by purchasing a set of promise rings. We like to think of a promise ring as a visual token of appreciation for your partner that shows that you are more serious than traditional dating.
A promise ring shows your commitment to your beloved without putting pressure on the relationship. Some couples use this as a step before an engagement ring, while others choose to avoid the engagement and marriage process all together.

If clients prefer to not get married, a promise ring is a great way to symbolize the fact that you are committed to one another.
Why People Choose Promise Rings?
There are many reasons why people choose promise rings over engagement rings. Many young couples feel that they are too young to get married and want to learn and grow together before they settle down. That is a smart idea! However, they often want to show their commitment to each other with a ring. Then a promise ring is the perfect piece of jewelry. You can wear it daily and remind yourself of your loved one no matter where they are.
Speaking of distance, long distance relationships require an enormous amount of love, trust, and communication. Some couples, who are separated by distance, want to show their commitment to the relationship and say that they are in it for the long haul. A promise ring says just that! Many couples in long distance relationships like to use a promise ring as a stepping stone to an engagement ring. In this case, a promise ring is used to show the other person that you are ready for marriage once your geographic distance changes.
Another reason why promise rings are popular is because of finances. The pandemic has been tough on all of our pocketbooks. So, if the pandemic has made it financially irresponsible for you to get married, a promise ring is a great gift for your love. These rings are often made of less expensive materials so they are more financially feasible for a lot of couples.
We see this happen a lot with couples who are in law school, medical school, or graduate school. Since these programs are so expensive, a big flashy ring is not really in the student’s budget. However, they want to honor their commitment to their person in a meaningful way. Enter promise rings! You can use a promise ring as a stand in for an engagement ring and promise your love that you will upgrade their ring when they finish school. This is such a sweet way of telling your love that you can’t wait to be married and that you wanted to show them a token of your appreciation before you can take that step.
