“A promise of friendship with a desire to let it grow into an engagement of marriage,” Author Unknown. I couldn’t have summed it up better myself, to explain what a promise ring or pre-engagement ring truly symbolizes. Often times that friendship comes at an age where one has many large decisions left in their life, whether it be the path to take after highschool, or their first career right after college. At this point, financially or mentally you might not be ready to make a lifetime commitment, but know that when that time comes you want to spend a lifetime with her, your best friend.

This purchase and process can still cause nervousness, as questions like what is her ring size, is now even the right time, will she even like it or wear it, goes through ones head, and mentally you are preparing yourself for an even bigger purchase in the future.

When is the Right Time to Give a Promise RingPromise Ring

If You Are Young : Promise rings should only be used if you are young, as it is normal for a young couple to not be in a strong enough financial position to get married. Promise ring styles may be used as engagement rings as you get older, if financially you are not in the position to get an engagement ring.

If You Have Been in a Relationship for 6 months to 1 year: These are normally large anniversary dates in young couples relationships where this type of commitment is normal.

If you have had serious conversations about your future together
