A Couples Ring Guide – The Meaning and History

Couples’ rings are a significant symbol of their deep connection. Whether you choose matching rings or mix and match styles, our illustrious range of couples rings elegantly mixes to symbolize your love. A couple’s ring serves as an engagement or “promise” ring and is associated with a variety of symbols. A couples ring often signifies a commitment to a monogamous relationship and a trusting partnership and serves as a precursor to future engagement. A promise ring basically refers to a pre- engagement where one party promises the other that they will propose to them at some point in the future.

Matching Wedding Ring Sets

Couples rings are also matching wedding rings sets. These are wedding rings purchased usually together that match for each person in the relationship. They can be exactly the same or similar yet slightly different. His and her matching wedding bands for men and woman differ slightly size and or price. Nowadays matching couple bands are as unique as the couple they represent.

So, what does a couple’s ring signify exactly?

No two people are alike when it comes to love, but no two relationships are the same. Therefore, it should come as no surprise that couples’ rings have a vast significance and meaning that embraces the wide range of human emotions and experiences. A prevalent topic for many people is eternity, love, and loyalty. Couples Rings, in addition to being a powerful declaration of equality within a relationship, are given to both partners and worn by both.

In many cultures, they are given and received as a symbol of love and devotion. Couples Rings are a longstanding custom that has only grown in popularity over time. Exchanging rings before marriage has a long history in Europe, even if it’s a relatively new one in the United States. Rings that have special meaning, such as the Claddagh Rings or “Posey Rings,” may be used as matching wedding bands for the future. The Irish Claddagh Ring is a form of a couple’s ring. It is a symbol of friendship, love and loyalty between a couple.  

The Italians had the couples ring called a fede ring which is like the claddagh ring known as the Dublin Claddagh.  The word fede in Italian means also faith. This is the strongest symbol of the bond between bride and groom, representing their love, faithfulness, and commitment to each other. In Korea a couple ring is a great way to let the world know you and your partner are in a sweet and sappy relationship. A pair ring is traditionally given on the 100th day of dating to demonstrate commitment and respect for the other partner. In a similar vein, many couples in Argentina and Chile exchange wedding rings to demonstrate their commitment, and many of these couples go on to utilize these rings in any subsequent wedding ceremonies. As a result, it appears that Couples Rings have a cosmopolitan appeal while also being traditional in many countries.

When it comes to engagement rings and couples’ rings, what is the difference exactly?

For starters, there is no need to distinguish between Couples Rings and Engagement Bands. Many couples throughout the world exchange engagement rings, and many of those couples go on to utilize those rings during their wedding ceremony. However, for many people, the term “engagement ring” conjures up thoughts of enormous, precious gemstones set in a ring that is given to one member of a pair as a symbol of their intention to get married.

So Why is the Couples Ring Tradition is Growing in Popularity?

Couples’ rings have become increasingly popular in recent years, no doubt fueled by people’s desire to be closer to their families and friends. People feel nostalgic for their ancestors’ customs and looking forward to the future as they begin to build their own family units of their own. Couples Rings serve as a link between these modern love stories and new family traditions and heirlooms, as well as between generations.

Couples who intend to marry one day can buy simple promise rings or couples rings that can double as wedding bands later. Couples’ rings can also be a stackable promise ring that can be incorporated into a wedding set.

Common Couple Ring Styles:

The Claddagh Ring

Irish or not, if you want to give a token of your friendship, love and loyalty that has meaning, a diamond Claddagh ring may be the choice for you. The Claddagh ring consists of a heart with a crown held by two hands symbolizing love, loyalty and friendship. The Claddagh Ring has become a world renowned symbol of love.

The Fede Ring also known as the Fenian Claddagh

This version of the Claddagh Ring with two hands holding a heart and no crown was made in Dublin in the 1800’s. It became known as the Fenian Claddagh Ring or the Dublin Claddagh Ring. The Fenian Claddagh Ring belongs to a style of European finger rings called a fede ring used as engagement rings in medieval and Renaissance Europe . The name fede comes from the Italian phrase “mani fede” meaning hands joined in faith.

Stack-able Rings

Beautiful stack-able rings that can be mixed and matched or even combined with your wedding bands are an ideal alternative for a couples ring. The Stacking Boho .25ct Diamond Claddagh Ring Set is an affordable diamond stack ring set. Or there are gold stackable wedding rings like the 14K Gold Diamond Celtic Knot Contour Band and Celtic Knotwork Wedding Ring Milgrain in 3mm .

What to Look for When Choosing a Couples Ring?

Making this significant investment will require a unique approach from each individual.
Some couples will choose rings together, while others will choose their own rings, and yet others will choose their partners’ rings for them, in order to maintain the element of surprise. There is no one right way to go about making this decision.

What about White Gold?

To make white gold rings, or jewelry, pure gold is combined with higher or larger percentages of white metal alloys like silver, nickel & palladium. To make white gold rings or silver rings have a whiter or brighter white it is often plated in rhodium.

Pure Gold is yellow and even when combined with white metal alloys it still can appear very yellow in color therefore the white gold wedding rings like sterling silver wedding rings are plated with a very bright white metal called rhodium.

Caring for your Gold jewelry

To keep gold wedding rings and gold jewelry shiny, you should clean your Celtic jewelry regularly with a solution of 10-parts warm water and 2-parts dish soap. The favorite dish soap of jewelers for jewelry is Dawn.

In regard to white gold and sterling silver Celtic jewelry it is important to remember that Rhodium-plate eventually wears off over time and normal wear revealing the true color of the metal beneath and allowing for tarnishing. How long will it take for the plating to wear off is unknown and depends on how well the jewelry is cared for. However remember that rhodium-plating is replaceable and can be re-done by your local jeweler, and is relatively inexpensive.

Why Sterling Silver May Turn Your Finger Green

If a person has a natural high acidity level in his/her skin, it is possible for his/her finger to “turn green” from silver or gold jewelry, or for silver jewelry to blacken especially when the weather is hot and humid. The green is actually caused by oxidation, and all silver will oxidize (it’s also what gives silver a tarnished look). There are some costume jewelry items that cause the same effect. Most of them contain nickel. It’s not poisonous in small quantities but it can provoke a reaction in people allergic to nickel. This “green finger effect” and the tarnishing of silver may also be an allergic reaction to alloy elements in sterling silver or gold. In some cases, the alloys, used to make jewelry more durable, may react with your body chemistry, chemicals in the air and household chemicals such as soap, salt and sun tan lotion causing a harmless green or black discoloration on the skin, which can be easily removed with soap and water, silver cleaner or with a polish cloth. For this reason, most retail silver jewelry and white gold jewelry is plated with rhodium, which serves as a defensive layer and prevents this reaction from happening to anyone with allergy.

What is Sterling Silver?

Sterling silver jewelry is usually made of a precious metal mixed with a metal alloy. Sterling silver is 92.5% pure silver, with the remaining 7.5% made up of other metals. Common metal alloys include nickel and copper to strengthen the silver since it is soft. Metal alloys can cause an allergic reaction, causing a black or green ring to form around the finger. The acid in your skin can also cause a reaction with some metals, which can result in discoloration. Most sterling jewelry pieces are plated with rhodium that prevent tarnishing and green figure but it can wear off eventually.

How to prevent discoloration from silver jewelry?

Generally harmless and basic household chemicals, alloys, and acid should not keep you from wearing your rings. There are many things you can do to prevent the dreaded green or black finger stain. Remove your rings before swimming in swimming pools or hot tubs. Chlorine is a chemical. Avoid wearing your rings when handling any household cleaning products they are chemicals. Even hair spray, perfume and sun tan lotion are simple chemicals that can react with your jewelry and its finish. It a good idea to also remove your rings at night and clean them regularly. If these tips aren’t enough to prevent your rings from leaving a stain on your finger, consider taking your rings or chains to your local jeweler to have it coated or re-coated with rhodium on the inside to prevent a reaction. Your local jeweler can coat your jewelry usually fast and for an affordable amount.
