01 November 2021

Promise rings are an essential addition to your businesses jewellery collection. They are a symbol of love and commitment between two people and a beautiful way to express devotion.

What is the history of promise rings?

In the Middle Ages, men gave posy rings as tokens of love to their romantic interests. These Posy rings were often decorated with romantic phrases such as, “united hearts, death only parts” or “love conquers all things.” Choosing a heartfelt inscription reflected the giver’s literacy and education.

In the Middle Ages, promise rings symbolized love as they do now. The meaning of a promise ring is unique to each couple. However, normally when a promise ring is given it signals commitment to an exclusive relationship. Promise rings are not engagement rings but they can serve as a ‘promise’ when a couple is waiting to get married or as a memento when a couple is apart.

They can be beautiful declarations of love.
