From couple rings and promise rings to matching bracelets and lockets – there are plenty of special ways to show you care with jewelry! In this post, we’re going to take a look at some of the best, and help you to choose the very best gifts for your other half. There are lots of reasons that we buy jewelry. One of the most common, of course, is in order to show that we care about the other person and to give them something that is beautiful and long-lasting. This is why so many guys buy diamonds for their partners when they’re getting engaged, and it’s why so many people will buy expensive gems on special occasions like anniversaries.
But in fact, you don’t need to spend a small fortune on an overly expensive rock in order to show how much someone means to you. In fact, in some ways, this is actually one of the less effective ways of showing your devotion. That’s seeing as buying expensive jewelry is actually ‘easy’ and doesn’t necessarily show much thought.
On the other hand, choosing things like couple promise rings, or couple bracelets show a lot more thought and consideration – plus it can match any budget (which can actually win you brownie points when you share your finances with the recipient!
Here are some of the very best options when it comes to saying ‘I love you’ with couple jewelry.
This is a way of saying that you want to be with someone forever, that you see them as your life-partner, and that they mean the world to you. But unlike an engagement ring, there is no expectation here that you are going to propose, or that this is going to lead to a wedding.
This might be a promise that an engagement ring will come in time – maybe when you have the budget for one, or when you are emotionally ready – or it can be used in place of one.
The idea here is that the ring shape of the couple promise rings will represent eternity. And indeed, these couple promise rings are sometimes referred to as ‘eternity rings’.
Other than that, there are no hard and fast rules for couple promise rings – only that they be particularly special items of jewelry. Note that in some rare cases, couple promise rings will utilize a particular design that includes small diamonds all the way around the band – but there is no requirement for this.
A word of advice though: make sure that your recipient understands what the promise rings mean and doesn’t mistake this for a proposal!
The idea here is that you will both have a similar item – such as a bracelet with is something often worn by both genders – and then in many cases get that item engraved with the same message. Alternatively, you might use the start and end of a quote, or any other two engravings that match even though they are not necessarily identical.
This also works really well for couple rings that match.
A similar method can be used when you have jewelry that is not itself matching. For instance, you can both get your watches engraved to match. This is a particularly nice way to show you care, as it is something that not everyone will know about: like it’s your own little secret.
Note that in some cases, eternity rings or promise rings will also be matching. This can also be something that you buy together: to share that promise and enter into it with an item that symbolizes your love and intentions. These matching couple rings are ideal for those that don’t want to get married at any point, but who want to stay together.
And that’s another pointer: you need to consider whether they actually like their birthstone! Just because it is someone’s birthstone, that doesn’t mean that they will necessarily hold it above all others. If you are unsure, then consider asking a friend or relative of theirs.
Perhaps even better would be to do your research, find what their favorite stones are, and then to use that when choosing couple promise rings and the like. Likewise, consider whether it is similar to the other jewelry they own and whether it would go with things that they typically wear. One basic consideration that is useful to keep in mind, is whether they prefer jewelry that is gold or silver. Get this right to ensure it’s something they’re actually likely to wear on a regular basis!
