What Are Promise Rings?

What are promise rings?

Promise rings have been a symbolic token of love since ancient times. Imagine a knight giving a ring to his fair maiden to show his devotion to her as he rides off to defend the Kingdom. For these reasons promise rings are still extremely popular today, even with many celebrities. Twilight star Robert Pattinson gave Kristen Stewart a promise ring for her birthday while Kylie Jenner posted a photo of herself on Snapchat wearing a promise ring she was given by her longtime boyfriend Tyga.


Promise rings represent a symbolic gesture and promise between two lovers, best friends, family members or to yourself (perhaps even to remind you of your secret crush!). Promise rings can be a promise to yourself to go after your dreams or given to someone you care about to show them you'll always be there for them and that they are the most important person in your life. Most popular with romantic couples, promise rings symbolise a serious relationship and that this person is someone very special to you.
