What You Should Say When You Exchange Promise Rings

The exchange of promise rings indicates a sign of commitment and could often be the first step of a couple’s journey toward a much more serious relationship. A promise ring can mean many things, including promises to be faithful, to always love each other, and to marry each other someday. Couples who plan to marry someday usually start with promise rings before proceeding to an engagement ring and finally to wedding rings.

What You Should Say When You Exchange Promise Rings

What is a promise ring?

The concept of promise rings goes back to thousands of years ago when couples were betrothed instead of engaged. A betrothal is a legally binding ceremony, which means that the couple promised to each other would eventually marry each other. As part of the betrothal ceremony, the groom-to-be will give his bride-to-be a ring that signifies his commitment to her.

Typically, a promise ring is given with the understanding that it will be replaced by an engagement ring in the future. With this in mind, promise rings are more modest in both design and price. The centre stone that’s set in a promise ring is sometimes smaller than the centre stone of an engagement ring, and may even have no centre stone at all. If you plan to give your special someone a promise ring make sure you get her a custom made jewellery that matches her lifestyle and preferences.

Which finger do you wear the promise ring?

As promise rings are intended as pre-engagement rings, they are traditionally worn on the third finger of the left hand, which is also the position for the engagement ring. At appropriate times, the promise ring will be replaced by the engagement ring and eventually by the wedding ring.

However, if the ring is not linked to a promise of marriage, this can be worn on any finger on the right hand. To avoid people confusing a promise ring from an engagement ring, some wear the pre-engagement ring on the right-hand ring finger.

What do you say when you give a promise ring?

There are many things you could say when you give your special someone a promise ring specifically designed and made for her. Here are a number of examples that may help you deliver the message without making her/him think that you are asking them to marry you:

Please accept this ring as a symbol of my vow to be faithful to you. Wear this ring as a symbol of our commitment to this relationship and our future.

Let this ring be a reminder of my pledge to be faithful to you and to never ever stop loving you.

This ring is a symbol of my intention to someday marry you and it holds the promise that my heart will be true. One day, I hope to replace this with an engagement ring, and eventually a wedding ring.

Looking at these rings, may we be reminded of our vow to be faithful to one another and that we'll always be there for each other.

More important than the words you say is how you say it. Remind yourself that this exchange of promise rings is a very personal and special occasion. The vows you make when you exchange rings will not be as grand, as formal, or as publicly-made as wedding vows. But, you should still choose words that reflect how you truly feel about your relationship. If you’re afraid of making speeches and making a mistake, then you can opt to write your thoughts in a card, which can also be considered as a lovely keepsake of this momentous event in your relationship.
