Difference between Pre-engagement rings and Promise rings

Pre-engagement rings and promise bands are both used as placeholders for the engagement ring, which is why they are so similar. Depending on when you plan to get married, you may have a different name for the ring. However, the term "promise" or "pre-engagement" may be used depending on whether or not you want to get married in the near future.

In most cases, pre-engagement bands and promise rings are worn on separate fingers. While pre-engagement rings are typically worn on the left hand, a promise ring can be worn on any finger as long as the wearer does not intend to be married soon.

Pre-engagement rings are purchased by whom?

A pre-engagement ring can be purchased by anyone for their intended spouse if they have any intentions of getting married in the near future. In order to take your relationship to the next level, you should wear this symbol of your love and dedication to each other.

A pre-engagement ring can be purchased by a variety of couples. For example, high school sweethearts or recent grads may choose for a pre-engagement ring since it's either too young or too expensive for them to get married. Similar to the example above, couples who are more cautious but still want to show their love and commitment may choose one.

Get this gorgeous purple stone set in your pre-engagement ring if you want a regal wedding. Smouldering purple stones are the epitome of royalty. In its raw nature, the amethyst gemstone is a beautiful addition to exquisite jewellery.

Amethysts have a Mohs scale level of 7 (diamonds have a Mohs scale level of 10), making them extremely durable and affordable. If you're looking for a more unique look, you might try pairing the lavender tint with other metals, such as silver or rose gold, for a stunning ring.


Sapphires occur in a wide range of colours, including blue, peach, pink, yellow, green, and white. Because sapphires are the Mohs scale's third-hardest material, they are an ideal alternative for diamonds. You can choose any colour you like, but if you're looking for the same sparkle as a diamond, white sapphires are the way to go.
