Promise bands are a common type of promise ring. Perhaps it would be best to start with, “What is a promise ring?”, to better understand what a promise band is.
Promise rings are a very traditional part of the past. They date back as far as the 1500s. Men used promise rings to propose when they could not afford to get married. Rather than letting his bride to be slip through his fingers, he would give a promise ring. This promise ring was the place holder for the future engagement ring.
A newer trend in terms of promise rings is the promise band. Younger couples tend to use promise bands. In today’s day and age, couples get engaged and married later in life. The tradition of using a promise band has evolved with our time. As couples delay getting married, they still do want to show they are committed to one another. The best way to do this is by exchanging promise bands.
