Promise Ring Bands for Every Personality

Rings are like relationships—there is a match for everyone… it just needs to be discovered. Promise rings are no different. When choosing a ring, the best advice is to let personality be the guiding compass because every personality evokes a different and unique style. Here are the best rocks to rock for every personality type:

The Eco-Friendly Au Naturel

Recycling is a must. Organic and fair-trade is the only option.  And bikes are much cleaner than any hybrid could ever dream. For the couple that puts priority on Mother Earth, their jewelry should feature conflict-free diamonds. The ring design must remain simple and reminiscent of nature like a band carved to emulate a sculpted branch of bamboo or engraved with etchings of leaves or flowers. Choose bountiful and inexpensive stones like amethyst, turquoise or rose quartz.

The Outgoing and Bold Provocateur

By definition, this personality has a passion for provocation and boldly says whatever comes to mind. Offensive?  Sometimes. This personality can wear what few can when it comes to jewelry. Big, bold statement rings are choice picks. Forget tradition, and throw conservative principles out the door. Choose daring solitaire stones like orange carnelian, a massive pear-shaped green Citrine, a robust globe of blue Chalcedony or large carved Lapis-Lazuli on a chunky band. More is more for statement’s sake, and when choosing diamonds, go big and go multiple. Bold and audacious individuals can rock the craziest of rocks and carry the most daring jewelry choices with absolute joie de vivre.

The Meek and Mild

Quiet and reserved, shy and sometimes a bit of a wall-flower, this personality is best reflected in refined ring styles. Elegant infinity rings, delicate scrolled bands and dainty diamond solitaires or clusters match the quiet mood of the personality. Water-colored stones like sapphires, aquamarine or blue topaz reflect the softness and subtlety of a quieter individual, while stones with inner depth—like opals—complement the mystique of this personality type.

The Sports-Loving Adventurer

Every television is tuned to ESPN, and Sundays are sacred days of football frenzy. Unafraid to toss a few curve balls, to catch air on a snowboard or to parachute out of a plane, the ring has to survive the roughest and toughest scenarios and cannot get in the way of adventure. Sleek durable metals like platinum or titanium hold up to the adventure, and a sleek row of channel-set princess cut diamonds make a statement without getting in the way. Stay away from softer gemstones like pearls or topaz that will be prone to dings and scratches. Diamond solitaires should be set low to avoid getting snagged on sports gear.

The Traditionalist

A promise ring for those who value tradition should follow the rules for promise ring designs of past generations. Simple gold bands with either a single small diamond or several tiny diamonds make the perfect ring choice.  A solitaire promise ring should not feature a diamond exceeding one-quarter carat, so the ring is not confused with an engagement ring. However, other gemstones may be used in larger carats. For gemstone choices, rubies, sapphires and emeralds remain the stand-out gems.

The Bookworm

Smart, yet romantic, this personality gets lost easily within the pages. Select rings reminiscent of favorite novels or plays. Love F. Scott Fitzgerald’s “The Great Gatsby?” Select a ring that features art deco engraving that echoes the vibrancy of the roaring 20’s.  Fans of Harry Potter can design bands featuring crests of Hogwarts houses. “Lord of the Rings” lovers may design rings with meaningful inscriptions written in Elvish text and even recreate The One Ring.

A promise ring represents a special bond between the giver and wearer. Promise rings for couples often represent love, but these rings can be given for a multitude of reasons, ranging from friendship to a personal commitment. With such a wide array of significance, the best ring is one that reflects both the promise and the personalities of those behind it.
