Often entered into between 2 younger people, a purity ring is a promise about sexual purity. Often made between 2 young people for religious reasons, it is a promise to abstain from sexual activity until a certain time, usually their marriage.
And it need not always be a promise made between 2 people, it can also be a promise to oneself. A display of a promise that a young person shall remain pure until time is right. Still, though, a very serious promise.
Some consider that a purity ring of this type is a promise between 2 “people”, in that other half of partnership is God. That this is a covenant or a promise made between a young person and his or her God.
The types of promise rings described are not exclusive. Diamond promise rings can be exchanged really for any reason. However it is very important, firstly, that both people understand exactly nature of what is being promised. If possible write it down so there can be no misunderstandings. If it can be encapsulated in a short phrase why not get it inscribed on ring?
And why diamond promise rings, rather than other types of promise rings? Just because diamonds are best. Nothing beats a diamond for a ring.
And because they aren’t cheap, so mere fact that you’ve both made a promise that you are prepared to cement by serious commitment of spending money means that it is very important to you. A cheap ring really doesn’t mean so much.
So why not display to world seriousness of your promise by wearing of a diamond promise ring? There’s no better way to make a commitment to each other until time is right.
