Tips to Buy Mesmerizing Promise Rings Under $50 for Your Girlfriend

Contrary to what many people think, a promise ring is not an engagement ring. It is a ring which is given mostly by a man to a woman to promise her that he will remain committed and faithful to her. Thus, in a way, a promise ring is a symbol of everlasting love. This ring, unlike an engagement ring, does not necessarily have to be worn on the ring finger; it can be worn on any finger. It expresses deep sentiments and appreciation for the person in your life. That’s why, when giving a promise ring, do not forget to tell your girlfriend why you are gifting it to her. Just like any other piece of jewelry, these rings―especially those made of platinum, gold, or those with gems and stones such as diamonds, rubies, and emeralds―can be very expensive. Not everyone can afford to give such costly rings. This, however, should not deter you from buying one as there are various inexpensive options available.


When looking for an inexpensive ring, don’t go for gold and platinum rings. Look at the sterling silver and titanium section. These are cheaper metals, and you are most likely to get a ring of your choice in your budget.

One of the best options is to go for the engraved rings. These are made in sterling silver and you can get a personalized message engraved on them. A love quote, your girlfriend’s and your name, any special romantic line, or words that you have for one another are some of the engravings you can consider. Some people engrave sayings in French such as “A Vila Mon Coer, Gardi Li Mo” which means “Here is my heart, guard it well”, or “A Ma Vie De Coer Entier” which means “My whole heart for my whole life”. However, if you do not want to write anything elaborate, simply writing “I love you” is the perfect way to convey your feelings.

Another option for beautiful rings are those which are made of sterling silver and are engraved with a number of tiny Cubic zirconia (Czs) stones. So, if your girlfriend prefers a flashy stone studded ring, this is a good option.

These days, sterling silver rings plated with platinum or 18k gold overlays are available under $50. Such rings are a good choice for those who have limited budgets but want the look to be similar to more expensive metals. If you want to create a personalized ring for her, a good idea would be to buy a ring which has her birthstone on it. Australian crystal birthstones are a cheaper alternative and are easily available for those who cannot afford the real birthstones.

Some other inexpensive rings are the ones made from materials such as glass, wood, ceramic and bone. However, as it’s a promise ring, preferably choose a metallic one, as they look more elegant and classy.
