Promise Rings are common, but not so many understand what they are.
They are particularly popular with the youth and it is important that any persons considering exchanging Promise Rings have some understanding of what they symbolize.
So what are Promise Rings, and what do they mean?
Promise Rings are a symbol of a promise made between 2 people.
It is usually not appropriate to exchange rings to seal any promise, or that Promise Rings may well not be the correct rings to use to seal that promise.
There are other types of rings which symbolize a promise made between 2 people.
An Engagement Ring symbolizes a promise made between 2 people?
An engagement has no legal force like a marriage does. It is just an agreement between the parties that they will, at some time in the future, get married.
And so an Engagement Ring is, in effect, a Promise Ring, except that it symbolizes a very specific type of promise.
