Best Matching Promise Rings For Couples

There are several promise ring designs, but some designs are preferred over others now in 2022.

Some of the best promise rings have engraved initials or matching ring symbols – royal crowns for her and him or two hands holding a heart, symbolizing a common goal.

Usually, there’s also a matching inscription inside promise rings for couples, such as “My Queen” and “My King,” in the case of crown-shaped rings from Vancaro.

That’s because promise rings are, by design, affordable and straightforward to be used as a symbol of commitment and love.

Personally, if I had to choose a promise ring for my lover again, I’d start checking the affordable promise ring options first.

Best Rose Gold Promise Rings

Compared to yellow gold promise rings, the rose gold ones have an extra feel of nonconformism, making them more suitable for those under 30.

You can choose from several rose gold promise ring options, but those with heart stones adorning the sides of a dazzling diamond – the centerpiece – are by far the most wanted rings in 2022.

And, of all rose gold promise rings with a diamond as a centerpiece, those with a black diamond – that creates an intense black halo – are the most sought.

Pinky promise rings are a category of promise rings of their own.

The pinky promise ring style does not have a center stone, making it a perfect choice for those seeking a “unique sign of commitment” ring.

The design of a pinky promise ring is a tiny band (for your pinky) with an inscription (pinky promise) on the inside.

The design is beautiful, clean, and a perfectly discreet reminder of your promise to your loved ones.

Cutest Promise Rings

There are so many cute promise rings out there I would love to share with you right now.

But of all the cute promise rings out there, I find Vancaro’s promise rings to be the cutest ones, and here’s why:

Made in black metal, the magic of black jewelry attracts eyes left and right.

It is an ‘unexpected’ color in this category of promise rings, a color that inspires a strong feeling of mystical expectation.

And, to top it up, that black rose directly on top of the ring transforms this promise ring from cute to mysterious.

What Is A Promise Ring?

A promise ring means, “now we’re more than just dating.”

Promise rings are physical symbols of your relationship to show the outside world that you’ve promised yourselves to each other.

Often confused with commitment, pre-engagement, and even purity rings, promise rings are a distinct category of rings.

First, promise rings are distinguished by a unique design that showcases devotion and eternal love symbols.

Second, promise rings can be given by both parties engaged in a romantic relationship to signify fidelity and commitment, and in some cases (not always) preceding engagement.

There are promise rings for women and men, and regardless of the style, you can wear them on any finger you choose.





Promise Rings FAQs

What is a Promise Ring Meant for?

A promise ring means you (the person that offers the promise rings) intend to take the dating relationship a step up.

The offering of a promise ring is meant for the world (friends, relatives, families) to see that you’re committed and devoted to protecting and nurturing that relationship.

A promise ring can be offered (and worn) by both partners, regardless of gender or sex.

Promise rings are given as precursors to engagement, but that is not always the case.

How Serious is a Promise Ring?

A promise ring signifies one’s desire to take the relationship seriously.

It also symbolizes hope for the relationship’s future development.

However, while showcasing serious intentions, offering or wearing a promise ring does not warranty marriage, as engagement rings do.

Nevertheless, a promise ring could lead to an engagement ring, but the two rings have different connotations.

Is a Promise Ring a Promise to Marry?

When you offer a promise ring to your partner, you clearly state your willingness to commit to the relationship.

A promise ring does not symbolize a promise to marry but a commitment between two people to look after their relationship.

It also shows future hopes towards engagement and, eventually, marriage.

At the same time, promise rings are also used by people who do not intend to marry but are in a serious long-term relationship and want to celebrate eternal love.

How Much Should a Promise Ring Cost?

Promise rings tend to be cheaper and cost less than engagement rings.

That’s because the promise ring is less flashy, meant to symbolize a promise rather than eternal love.

On average, a promise ring should cost between $100 – $400.

However, there are a lot of expensive promise rings out there, and I’ve just seen one today priced at $9,500.

Therefore, use your common sense regarding how much you should spend on a promise ring.

For example, if getting engaged is in the views of both of you, try not to break the bank on the promise ring.

Do Guys Wear Promise Rings?

Promise rings are not reserved exclusively for women, so yes, guys can wear promise rings as well.

In fact, given that the promise ring symbolizes commitment in a relationship, all sexes and genders can wear them just fine.




Conclusion

I hope you’ve enjoyed my collection of promise rings covering the most popular choices in 2022, from band-style promises to blue promises and cluster rings.

While many people associate promise rings with teenagers’ love and abstinence from sex before marriage, the meaning behind a promise ring is suitable for couples of all ages.

Class apart from wedding rings and wedding bands, one’s choice of the best promise ring depends on finances, age, and geography.

For example, a couple in medical school, with years before becoming financially secure, might choose a promise ring over a diamond engagement ring, allowing them to pay off student loans first.

It is also preferred by in-love couples unable to cohabitate, engage, and get married anytime soon, for whatever reasons; he’s in the army, and she’s working abroad.

In these scenarios, a promise ring is a placeholder for a future engagement without kickstarting the wedding planning process.

The promise ring is an age-old concept that has seen a phenomenal resurgence in recent years.

That’s thanks to sexy celebrities like Liam Hemsworth, Miley Cyrus, and the Jonas Brothers, who started wearing them to showcase deep partner commitment.
