Every guy wants to make sure that he is buying the right promise ring for his girlfriend. It needs to be meaningful and should suit your girlfriends taste in jewelry after all, this is a special occasion and special occasions should be treasured.
Promise Ring Metals
Promise rings for her are normally made out of either Gold or Silver and often have a gem stone mounted on the ring. Often the gem stone is a birthstone or a heart shaped stone.
If however, you are looking to buy a promise ring for a guy, then these rings are more often than not either made of Gold, Titanium or Tungsten and normally do not contain any gemstones.
How Much to Spend
Buying a promise ring can be a pretty big deal and you don’t want to come off as being cheap. So it is important to ensure that you spend an appropriate amount of money, but also not to go overboard.
These days most people are happy to spend between $100 – $200 on a promise ring and save the rest of your money towards an engagement ring or a special holiday. Particularly as promise rings are traditionally given by younger people who don’t have thousands of dollars in the bank waiting to buy an expensive piece of jewelry.
The reason you can normally get a promise ring so much cheaper than an engagement or wedding ring is because giving a promise ring is not as big of a commitment as proposing or getting married, and so buying a cheaper stone is completely acceptable. In fact, many promise rings contain Cubic Zirconia stones instead of real diamonds as they are significantly cheaper, but still look like the real deal.
The Right Ring
Ultimately you want to get something that she is going to adore. So this means that you will have to work out exactly what types of rings she likes, as well as the type of metal she normally wears. Once you have figured this out, you just need to find the right style and give her the ring.
