Promise rings have been around for over 500 years and were known as Posy rings during the 15th through the 17th centuries. Posy is a derivative of poetry, and the rings were gold and engraved with short romantic, religious, or friendly inscriptions. However, people traditionally gave them as lovers' gifts.
The more modern concept is pre-engagement rings. But promise rings don't have to be a commitment to someone else. Anything near and dear to your heart can be on a ring, and a simple glance will remind you of your promise to yourself.
Whether staying positive, being a friend forever, enjoying life, or being grateful for what you have, a promise ring can be a simple yet powerful daily reminder.
