Where did the Promise Ring Originate?

Origin of the Promise Ring

The promise ring became a popular concept in 16th century England; uncut diamonds were made into a ring and then given to a lover and usually the lover reciprocated with a ring as well. These were commonly referred to as scribbling rings. The person wearing the scribbling ring would then use the diamond to scribble love notes into glass, mirrors or a window as a way to express their love to the one who gave them the ring.
