A white gold promise ring is sort of like a pre engagement ring and favored by the very young mostly.
According to Wikipedia white gold promise ring:
“A promise ring or friendship ring is a small, inexpensive ring given to a boyfriend or girlfriend, to promise not to court a rival. These indicate merely that serious courting is under way. No permanent commitment has been made by either party, but they give the partners an excuse for refusing social invitations from others.”
White gold promise rings are usually about 10 carat gold and might have a small gem in, either a diamond or a zirconia if cost is an issue.
When buying a white gold promise ring do ensure that you are getting what you paid for. Make sure the ring actually matches the description as given in the advertising.
As there are so many different types of rings available you might want to take along the partner to help select the ring so that it is one they will be happy with.
It will need to fit comfortably on the finger (it can be worn on either the right or the left hand).
It should be well looked after and will need to be cleaned from time to time. Never use any chemicals on the ring as there are other metals besides gold in the ring and these may react with the chemicals. Warm soapy water is best. After washing it should be thoroughly dried before returning to the finger or being put away.
Selecting a white gold promise ring can be a happy and exciting time so do ensure that the right ring is selected so it is also a long lasting memorable time as well.
