Women love getting jewelry. Even more than jewelry, they love sentimental gifts from their significant others. A promise ring is also sometimes called a pre-engagement ring. It’s given to represent your commitment to the monogamous relationship and can often be used in place of an engagement ring, either because the two of you are too young to get married, lack the financial means, or have no interest in marriage for whatever reason.
Who should give a promise ring?
Promise rings are great for people who are too young to get married, such as high school students. They also work well for people who are not planning on getting married ever, or who want to wait a number of years before tying the knot.
While promise rings are common in high schools, it’s less common for adults to give and receive promise rings. That could change, however, as people place less importance on getting married young. Although both men and women can give promise rings, most often men give women a promise ring. It’s appropriate for people in a committed relationship that they both would like to last a lifetime.
Diamond Promise Rings for Women
A promise ring featuring diamonds is the easiest to confuse with an engagement ring. Diamonds are a classic stone for use in jewelry and are loved by many women for their aesthetic qualities. Some diamond promise rings feature a cluster of very small diamond chips, or they may have a larger, but still small, diamond mounted as a solitaire.
Cluster diamond promise rings give the appearance of having a larger diamond, but really features several smaller diamonds “clustered” together. Cluster rings are a great style for promise rings because they offer a greater visual impact for a lower price.
Solitaire diamond rings feature only one diamond mounted to the band. It’s a classic design that will never go out of style.
More intricate designs can include curved shanks, split shanks, scroll designs, twists, diamond accents and more. If you cannot find a design you like, many jewelers will work with you to create the perfect piece.

Birthstone Promise Rings
Birthstone rings are also commonly used for promise rings. Using your loved one’s birthstone is a great way to customize the jewelry to her, without having to go over the top. Birthstones are semi-precious or precious stones that are beautiful in gold, silver and white gold bands. For a unique twist on the birthstone promise ring, you can create a ring that combines two stones, one which is your birthstone and one which is hers.

What a Promise Ring is not
A promise ring is not costume jewelry. Although, by nature, promise rings are less expensive than engagement rings, you should not use that as an excuse to get a cheap piece of jewelry. Promise rings are supposed to represent your commitment to each other, so make sure it’s a piece of jewelry that lasts.
Promise rings are also not just for giving to anyone. When you give a promise ring, it should be with intent similar to marriage, even if you’re not planning to get married. Promise rings should be reserved for people you really feel you could spend the rest of your life in a relationship with.
Always remember that a promise ring is not an engagement ring. Although you can make the giving of one a little fun, you need to keep it casual. Don’t get down on one knee or ask the waiter to hide it in her dessert. You don’t want your girlfriend to think your proposing, so always keep your intentions clear.
