They might be all the rage these days, but commitment rings (also known as 'pre-engagement rings' or 'promise rings') are actually nothing new. In fact, they supposedly date back to the 16th century!
In those times, if a man could not afford to marry the woman he loved at a certain point, he would give her a ring to show that they would get married eventually.
Commitment rings with this purpose are still quite popular today, particularly among young couples who intend to get married, but perhaps aren't at that stage in their lives yet when they're able to afford to get married and have children.
Although of course,commitment rings aren't just for women, or even just for one person in the couple.
Many couples who have been married for a while often choose to get commitment rings to perhaps mark a special milestone in their marriage, like a special anniversary.
There are also couples who choose to get commitment rings as an alternative to marriage. If marriage isn't what they want to do, commitment rings are the ideal way to show a partner just how much they mean and that the other person is in it for the long run.
Whatever you're looking for, whether you're married, thinking about getting married or looking for a way to tell someone just how much they mean to you, commitment rings are the way to do it!
