Promise Ring

The definition of a Promise Ring varies for different couples, however the universal reason for the ring is commitment. A partner will give the ring to show their love and loyalty for their special person. It can be presented as a pre-engagement ring especially for younger couples who are not ready to settle down at the moment. As the name suggests, a promise ring signifies a promise. Below are a few of our Promise Rings we love,

Taking care of your diamond engagement ring

You’ve finally received the most important piece of jewelry of your life… You want to wear your engagement ring even in your sleep! but you’ll also want to keep it safe and sound, looking as bright as the first time you saw it. Diamonds might be the hardest stones on earth, but they’re still prone to cracking and other kinds of damages. Here are some infallible tips on how to take care of your favorite ring.

 

1 – Be extra careful with your ring when you’re in public spaces, we’d recommend not taking it off! Leaving jewelry in public restrooms is a common thing, or even worse: dropping it down the toilet! Don’t even take that risk.

2- Don’t wear your ring when you’re doing tasks or chores. Even gardening, working in the kitching or lifting something heavy could potentially crack your diamond.

3- Makeup first, then jewelry. Cosmetics can damage diamond jewelry, incluiding but not limited to lotions, perfumes and hairspray.

4- Keeping your jewelry clean: The best you can do is take it to jeweler that can get it properly steamed cleaned if you notice that the ring is looking somewhat dirty.

5- Never do your laundry while wearing your ring: Bleach and other chemicals can dull the finish of the ring or harm the gems.

6 – Remove your diamond jewelry before you take a swim or do sports: Chlorinated water can cause potential structural damage, and any kind of quick movement or hard blow while playing sports could loosen the stones of your ring.

The Ring Finger

Wedding rings are a staple of modern day society and the surefire way of telling if someone is engaged or married is by checking their left hand.We also know that engagement and wedding rings go on the fourth finger of the left hand, otherwise known as the ring finger.

Wedding_Engagement_Rings_By_Szul
No one really knows the exact origin of the wedding ring. In history, the wedding ring was connected to the exchange of possessions at the moment of the wedding rather than the symbol of love and devotion that it is now. Now, the circle is a symbol of eternity, with no beginning or end while the hole in the middle signifies a gateway or a door into a new life together. By wearing rings on the fourth finger, a married couple symbolically declares their eternal love for one another.
But why put the ring on the fourth finger? Up until the 1700s, the ring could be worn on any finger, including the thumb. Later on, people believed that a vein ran directly from the fourth finger on the left hand to the heart. They titled this vein the ‘Vena Amoris’ Latin for ‘Vein of Love.’ Because of the perceived connection between the hand and the heart, they decided to place their symbol of love on this finger. Though this was proven false by modern day science, the custom remains today.

Wedding_Ring_Fourth_Finger
Looking down and seeing a ring on the fourth finger holds a different significance for everyone and the rings worn on this finger represent each couple’s own unique version of their eternal love. This ring-finger tradition has stood the test of time just as the ring itself sends the message of a love that will also last forever.
