Historically, a man might have presented a woman with a proposal ring before a formal engagement. An engagement was usually associated with an announcement and setting a date, while the proposal marked the original intention to marry. Today, some couples still chose proposal rings as an interim before an engagement ring. Other couples may use proposal rings to propose a transition that’s not related to marriage, such as moving in together.

About Proposal Rings
Traditionally, proposal rings were less formal than an engagement ring, and that still holds today. You can pick any ring that is meaningful to you and suits your tastes. Let your imagination go, since there are no expectations other than something beautiful.
Proposal Ring Designs
Historically, women didn’t wear their proposal ring on the same finger as the engagement and wedding ring, but that tradition no longer holds, if that’s your preference.
Birthstone Rings - A birthstone or favorite color are ideal for proposal rings, as well as the traditional diamond.
- Promise Ring - A promise ring is not the same as a proposal ring, since a promise ring isn’t necessarily associated with plans to marry, and often marks a deepening of the relationship emotionally rather than a new life stage.
- Tradition - If you have a family ring that you want to use for an engagement ring, a proposal ring can be a way to honor and keep that tradition while adding something unique to the two of you.
