Generally speaking, a promise ring does not have strict regulations on wearing on which finger like an engagement or wedding ring has. You can choose to wear it on the middle finger or ring finger, or even wear it as a necklace pendant on your neck. In addition, many people will wear the promise ring on their right hand after marriage.

You can use a soft ruler to measure the size of your finger. You only need to wrap the soft ruler around the thickest part of your finger and make the end of the soft ruler coincide with the top point of the soft ruler to measure the size, then compare and find your ring size according to the ring size table. If you don’t have a soft ruler, you can also use a paper band or a rope to measure the finger circumference, mark the overlapping position at the end, and then use a ruler to measure the length.

There is also another important thing, the ring size should be adjusted appropriately according to the season. If you are buying a ring in winter, your fingers are a half to one size thinner than in summer caused by the cold weather. Therefore, you should choose a ring that is able to rotate left and right but not fall off easily while wearing it in winter. And it is better to choose a ring a little bit tighter while wearing it in summer.

And it is not necessary to choose expensive precious gemstones that exceed your capacity. You can try to choose the birthstone according to the birth month of your lover, this will be way more special actually.

In general, the promise ring does not mean that the most expensive is the best. In fact, the most important thing is your faithful promise and hope for love behind the promise ring.
