Promise Ring

A promise ring is often given to one’s girlfriend  as a way of demonstrating the seriousness of and  commitment to a relationship. 

Some people give a promise ring as a precursor to  an  engagement  ring,  and  it  is  sometimes engraved with such messages as “I love you”, or  “My Valentine” etc. Others give promise rings  if they are too young to get married. They are  also known to have been given when two people  meet later in life and, although they know they  want to stay together, feel the time has passed for  marriage.

Although there is no set finger on which to wear  a Promise Ring, many people place them on the  wedding finger.
