    Your Promise Ring Questions Answered

    WHAT IS A PROMISE RING? What’s the meaning of a promise ring?

    A promise ring is a symbol of commitment – it says, we’re in this together. It means you know, but maybe you're not quite in marriage territory or maybe you’re not the marrying kind but still want to seal your bond with a bauble.

    Or maybeyou want to make a promise to yourself, to commemorate your love, loyalty, and commitment to the person who will always be by your side - you! You know we love this. Let's date ourselves, wine and dine ourselves, and shower ourselves in jewels to celebrate our unconditional love of self.

    Whether it's for yourself or someone else, the meaning is what you make it. Fine jewelry can symbolize so much and since it lasts a lifetime (or more likely, several), it can act as a forever talisman to hold whatever intentions you put towards it.

    Which finger do you wear a promise ring on?

    Usually promise rings are worn on the ring finger – either left or right. If you plan on getting engaged in the future, it’s starts on the left ring finger and is moved to another finger once you’re engaged. Having said that, wear your promise ring wherever you like it best!

    Do both people get promise rings?  

    Why not?! We love promise rings for couples. While there’s definitely no rules for dual promise rings, it’s fun for both people to have a wearable reminder of the romance in their relationship! Consider foregoing the secrecy and browsing together so you can pick designs that capture each of your unique energies and aesthetics.

    What color should promise rings be?

    Our favorite part of promise rings – there are literally zero rules or conventions when it comes to gold color or gemstones. Say yes to a sleek engraved gold band, commit to an ombré sapphire band, or drench them in diamonds all the way – pick whatever speaks to you!   

    Our one piece of advice – skip the basic, done-before designs and find something that’s unique to your partner – whether that’s a specific gemstone, unique engraving, an unexpected shape, or some other design element that feels like them. Take this opportunity to be different and #justsayno to the interlocking heart designs of yesteryear.

    What is the average price of a promise ring?

    This is completely up to you and your budget! You can buy an stunning promise ring for under $500 or you can splurge to the sky!Maybe you’re promising with a chic gold band or maybe your promise is sealed with a 2-carat diamond bomb – you get to decide what’s right for you!

    Do older couples get promise rings?

    Absolutely, grown-ups get to have fun too! Engagements do not have to be the only jewelry-worthy milestone in a relationship – we love the idea of presenting a promise ring at any age to symbolize your rightness for each other. It’s an incredibly sweet and meaningful gesture that will mean a lot whether you’re planning to get engaged at some point or not.
