Promise ring speeches: Some advice

What to say when presenting a promise ring is a challenging task, but not impossible to figure out. We must always keep in mind that the message has to sound authentic, come from the heart and that there are genuine motivations behind the gesture.

A promise ring speech for her or him will be memorable not for the wording itself, but for what it represents.

To achieve this effect, keep the following tips in mind:


A great little speech

When the words are well chosen, even a small speech has the power to stir the most beautiful feelings. If you find that going on too long is a problem, opt for sharing short, easy-to-remember phrases that come from your heart, as long as you make your intentions clear. Even if that means just saying a few words.

It's an intimate and meaningful moment on its own, keep it short if you think it goes best with your personality and style.


Think about the reasons that made you give the jewelry as a gift

Every promise behind a ring is unique, so that's the best source of inspiration. Do you want a long engagement? Do you hope for an early marriage? To be best friends? To respect each other and be faithful?

If you keep your mind focused on your reason for giving the jewelry, the right words will come to you. If necessary, explain your motives, so that the person receiving it understands that it comes from your purest feelings.


Support it with a poem, song or quotation

To be honest, not everyone has the gift of gab, and that's not necessarily a bad thing. A great source of inspiration is poems, romantic song lyrics or quotes from books.

You can start by saying, "I want to share these words with you" say the quote or poem and end with something like "Once I read this, I couldn't get you out of my head, because that's what you mean to me."


Write a small card that is part of the detail

While there are many short phrases and small passages that are very easy to memorize, nerves can be very treacherous. If this is your case, write on a nice card your speech so you can remember it, in your own handwriting.

Once the gift is delivered, the card will be a wonderful keepsake that you can leave with your partner to remember the event.


Create a special moment

Don't underestimate the power of improvisation. By giving your promise ring in a location that is special and symbolic to you and your partner, you can more easily let your romantic side come out.

When you're at the location of your first date, where you met for the first time or at your favorite place, it's amazing how naturally the words come from the heart.


Best promise ring message

The best promise ring quotes for her and him are undoubtedly the ones that come from the heart, inspired by happy memories, beautiful moments and even situations that you were able to overcome together.

It may seem difficult to get a ring quote that keeps in itself a memory, but the truth is that just thinking about the best moments lived together will give one or more clear ideas of what to take to paper as an option.

Here are some ideas of what you can write in a note:

  • I would like to give you this ring as a symbol of my love for you, indestructible and eternal like the diamond.
  • May this ring be a solid promise that my love for you is real and pure.
  • Knowing you has changed my life forever, may this ring symbolize that our love story has only just begun.
  • Accept this ring as a token of my faith in our future and I hope that when you see it, you will remember that I have promised to love you forever.
  • By exchanging these rings with you, I shout to the world that my heart will be true to you even before marriage.
  • Let us use these rings as a reminder that we will always be with each other regardless of distance, time or circumstance.
  • I see in you not only the love of my life but the friendship with whom I want to share the greatest adventures.


Promises to make with a promise ring

Promise rings are a bond that is shared between couples as a reminder of specific things that are important to both of them. If you don't know what to say when giving your girlfriend (or boyfriend) a promise ring, simply tell her about your biggest commitment so she will never forget it. Something you want her to remember every time your partner sees the ring.


  • This ring is a reminder that I have promised to be faithful to you and that my heart responds only to you.
  • This, is more than a ring, it is the promise that I am forever to you.
  • Although I hope that someday this ring will be a wedding ring, for now it is a promise to love each other forever no matter what.
  • I give you this ring and I promise you that every time I see it, I will remember that I have vowed to be for you always.
  • With this ring I also give you the promise that I will do everything possible for us to have a bright future.
  • With this ring I promise to work every day to prove to you that you are the only thing I want in the world.
  • I promise to wear this ring forever, as a symbol that I have vowed to you until we are ready for the next step.
  • As long as you choose to wear this ring with me, I promise to make you the only woman/man in my life.

"A promise"
<<I am giving you this ring as a promise to you
That no matter what, I will always be here and I will always be true.
I promise that I will lie with you and hold you at night
When things throughout your day just don't seem to be going right.
For you, I would walk a thousand miles and more
Just to see your beautiful smile that I absolutely adore.
I promise that I will make you smile when you feel like crying.
I promise that I will comfort you if you feel like dying.
I promise to steal away your every sorrow and fear.
I promise to wipe away your every tear.
I promise to cherish every minute I spend with you
Until the daylight sky is no longer the color of blue.
Without your love, I do not know what I would do.
I will not have a future unless it involves you.
You've changed me for the better, and I have never been so happy.
Now, with you in my life, I can't picture a world without you and me.
Fate decided it was time for us to be together,
And though our time here on Earth is short, I promise I want you always and forever.
I promise that no matter what may happen, we will make it through.
Please take this ring as a symbol of the love I will always have for you.>>
Author: Shae F.
<<My Promise>>
<<This is my promise to you for the world to see,
Just how much you really mean to me.
I promise to love you,
As long as you love me too.
I tell this to the stars above,
To remind you that you will always be loved.
I tell this to the fish in the sea,
And they too will know just how much you mean to me.
I promise you forever,
We'll spend our lives' time together.
I promise to make you better when you feel down,
Even if that means I have to act like a clown.
If this promise to you isn't enough,
Well then maybe I should think twice about us.
But even if I do,
I will always be deeply in love with you.>>
Author: Amanda R. Stroope
<<A Promise>>
<<I promise my love, to always be here for you
To always be your light when all else grows dark
To always be your guide when you lose your way
To always be your reminder when you lose all hope
I promise my love, to always be here for you
I promise my love, I will never leave your side
You will never wonder where I am
I will always be there when you reach for me
I will always be here when you need me
I promise my love, I will never leave your side
I promise my love, I will love you with all that I am
I will always kiss you when you least expect it
Always look upon you, even when you don't know it
Never give up on you, even if you give up on me
I promise my love, I will love you with all that I am
I promise my love, that I will be everything you need
I will be your shoulder to cry on
I will be your pillar to lean on
I will be your soul mate, now and forever
I promise my love, that I will be everything you need
I promise my love, that I will be loyal to you
Loyal in the times you don't want me
Loyal in the times you don't need me
Loyal in the times you need to be away from me
I promise my love, that I will be loyal to you
I promise my love, that I will love you always
No matter how hard it gets
No matter how lost we become
No matter how far we drift apart
I promise my love, that I will love you always>>>

What to say when giving a man a promise ring

Yes, the woman usually wears the engagement ring. It is a tradition that has been changing over time, especially lately. It used to be customary for the man to be the one to buy the ring and propose. However, nowadays everything has changed, (for better from our perspective) giving couples much more scope to experiment for themselves what they like or dislike about everything, including the pre-established traditions to a large extent.

It's really not that it's wrong for the man to give the engagement ring to the woman, but now they can simply decide for themselves if they both want to give each other something that in a very beautiful and noble way seals for both of them that memory in time.

That said, what to say when giving a man a promise ring? We dare say that there is really no difference, whether man or woman the essence is the same, remember the best moments together, even funny moments that have filled them with happiness and turn them into phrases.

"I want to enjoy my life with you, you are my happiness, my strength and the best partner I could have known".

"Everything we have lived through has been an adventure, but the most important one is yet to come"

"I feel that we can achieve anything together, let's make it possible now, tomorrow and always"

"We unite our paths, as we unite our hearts"

"We have the same dream, to be happy together"


We can go on all day with this, because at Albert Hern we really love jewelry and what they represent beyond being works of art made with fine materials, they are valuable symbolic elements, full of deep meaning for the giver and the wearer. Now that you know what to say when giving someone a promise ring, dare to take the next step and while you're at it, don't forget to visit our ring catalog, where you'll find perfect options of symbolic rings to give to a special person.



  • How do you properly give a promise ring to your partner?

    We believe that presenting a promise ring is a symbolic and romantic gesture. To do it right, choose an intimate and special moment when you and your partner can be alone and uninterrupted. Share your thoughts and feelings about your relationship and the meaning of the ring. You can present the ring in a small box or even tied to a ribbon, and if you wish, you can pop the question kneeled down, traditional style, for extra romance!

  • What can I engrave on a promise ring?

    You can add an extra special touch by engraving a personalized message onto the promise ring. Some ideas include both of your initials, a significant date (like your relationship anniversary), a short phrase that sums up your relationship, or a specific promise you're making. For example, "Always Together," "Forever," or "I'll Love You Forever."

  • Do I need to kneel when giving my partner a promise ring?

    While kneeling isn't mandatory, it can be a memorable romantic gesture that adds drama and significance to the moment. Whether or not to kneel depends on your personal preferences and the nature of your relationship. If you feel that kneeling fits the occasion and expresses the importance of your commitment, then go for it! Otherwise, a sincere and heartfelt presentation of the ring, accompanied by meaningful words, will also be impactful.

  • What am I promising when I give my partner a promise ring?

    By presenting a promise ring, you are symbolically committing to love, dedication, and faithfulness to your partner. The promise may vary depending on your relationship, but it generally entails a deeper level of commitment and the intention to take the relationship to the next level. You might promise everlasting love, unconditional support, honesty, and fidelity, or anything else that is important to you as a couple.

  • What should I say when giving a promise ring to my partner?

    Yes, saying a few words when giving a promise ring is an essential part of the gesture. Express your feelings for your partner and explain the meaning of the ring and the promise it represents. Speak from the heart about the value of your relationship and your hopes for the future. You can include a specific vow or simply convey your love and commitment. Sincere and authentic words will make the moment memorable.
