Promise

What do you guys think about promise rings?

In days gone by, promise ring were merely placeholders for engagement rings.

Nowadays, promise rings can represent many things: from simple declarations of love to a ring to signify the commitment to a monogamous relationship. And with technology making long distance relationships more common, promise rings have become very popular to ease the distance between two lovers.
In fact, a coworker was given a beautiful promise ring by her Afghanistan-bound boyfriend and I would catch her at work, gazing at it - a physical extension of her distant lover.

And along with the changing representations, styles have changed too.
From flamboyant cocktail style to simple bands engraved with a heart, promise rings are making a comeback.

Here's a few styles that I find absolutely lovely and would be great as promise rings:

Oh, I laughed so hard at the last picture. I don’t know what I would do if my boyfriend gave me an edible promise ring. Haha! As for me, I’m blessed to have a sweet guy who gave me a simple band with a line from my favorite poem engraved on the outside. I believe that promise rings don’t need to be elaborate, but should be one the represents you.
