How soon is too soon to buy someone a promise ring?

We’ve been together for 10 months now, and I was planning on getting on the 1 year mark.

    Why don’t you wait and buy an engagement ring at a later date?

    Promise rings are a waste of money.

    Well what are your overall intentions? As a man(currently married), I would stay away from ring giving at all, unless there are wedding bells in the future.

    After all women love bracelets, necklaces, pearls, vacations and more. Don’t be misleading unless you are sure.

    I’m not a real fan of ‘promise rings’ – I think it’s better to wait and get engaged when you’re ready. A promise to one day promise to one day get married seems a bit much to me. But i think a year is a good mark if that’s something you want to do.

    I don’t really get the whole point of promise rings. You are promising to be together forever right? So why not wait until you are ready to give an engagement ring. They have the same meaning only one means wedding bells.

    I think the one year mark is a great time for a promise ring. But then again, if you are above the age of 18 or so, (and even that’s pushing it) you should really consider waiting until you are ready for en engagement ring instead.

    I think promise rings are sweet. It’s letting her know that you really care and think she could be the one. I was more happy about the promise ring than the engagement ring. I wasn’t expecting it at all. I got mine 3 months.. good luck

    First of all, it’s perfectly normal to talk about engagement before getting engaged. In many cases it’s a good idea. I’m not discouraging that.

    However, to me a ring that represents a promise to make a promise to make a promise to spend the rest of your life together seems very diluted to be very meaningful. In a way it’s saying “I think we might last, but I am not in a position to make a real commitment right now, but just hint at it.” I agree you should give some nice jewelry and wait for an engagment ring when you feel that the time is right.

    As far as etiquette goes, there aren’t really any ground rules for it at all.

    Ya most women don’t like promise rings. So wait about 5-6 month’s and buy her an engagement ring.

    everyone thought my bf & i were crazy, & ill probably get thumbs down for this, but my bf gave me a promise ring after less than a month of dating. we’ve been together now for 2 yrs. & i have no regrets. it’s whenever you feel like both of you are ready to make that commitment. if you know she’s “the one,” no one should judge you if that decision is made “too early.” go for it 🙂

    Why not get an engagement ring???

    A promise ring is only cute if you’re 15.

    A promise ring is only exchanged among the teen crowd. If you are an adult, just give an engagement ring when you are ready for that step.

    Promise rings are for children. Save up for an engagement ring if you really want to go that route.

    Guess it kind of depends on what the promise represents. Is this a promise for marriage, a promise to save yourself for this person, a promise to always be there for them. Depending on the meaning, that will give you the answer.

    In the meantime, here is a site I purchased one from –

    A promise ring is a ring given as an outward and physical expression, or symbol, of a promise made between two people.As for me, if you feel like giving your hubby a promise ring now, so why don’t you do it? After all, the date doesn’t matter.What matters most is you will be true to the promise you’ve done to the person you love.

    On the other hand, I bought the promise ring for my girlfriend here:
    And she really like it a lot!
    Good luck!
