What is a promise ring?
Promise rings or commitment rings are usually given before an engagement ring to symbolise a future engagement, or simply as a symbol of devotion to each other. The meaning of promise rings, however, it can vary from couple to couple, which has given rise to their popularity, as couples can choose what exactly the promise ring means to them.
There's no right or wrong way to give your partner a promise ring. It doesn't need the same "on bended knee" tradition as engagement rings, and they're most often given as a Birthday, Valentine's or even Christmas gift.
Promise ring finger
A promise ring is traditionally worn on the engagement ring finger, the fourth finger of the left hand. Ancient Romans believed that this finger had a vein that ran directly to the heart - the Vena Amoris, or "Vein of Love." However, couples can choose which finger to wear the ring on, and sometimes they are worn on a necklace chain.
