What is a “Promise Ring”?
A promise ring is a ring which symbolises a couple’s commitment, and is often given in advance of an official engagement ring.
As with many trends, this one originates in America, but is actually a modern-day version of 16th Century English and French “posy rings” – simple gold bands, engraved with lines of romantic poetry.
The modern trend for promise rings has been catching on more and more in the UK, with a recent Brides Magazine survey showing that 67% received one before the official proposal.
The Mildred Jones Alternative
Mildred Jones customers like to be a little bit different, however, and we have had increasing enquiries from men wanting something meaningful to give in place of a ring. Luckily, we have an answer: a personalised Celebration Pendant is a stunning way to demonstrate commitment, as it is made to last forever and become part of the family story.
Choose from solid 18ct gold or platinum, have your own words engraved, and add gemstones to express your commitment in a totally unique way. It really is the ultimate romantic gesture!
It is a true heirloom piece, which has the important advantage of leaving your fingers free for the all-important engagement ring!
