pure silver gifts for wedding
Purity rings are very popular among young men and women especially in the Christian community. This is mainly because they are put on as a reminder of their commitment to abstain from any sexual relations till they are in a marriage context. It is also a common way to spread the message of celibacy that has been used by various pro abstinence groups and organizations all over the world.
The rings can be purchased by different people for diverse reasons to achieve a similar purpose especially in Christian circles. Purity rings can be purchased by parents for their children when they reach a certain age as a reminder to them that purity is important and should be kept so till they are married. It has even evolved into events known as purity balls where fathers accompany their daughters and present them with purity rings as a sign that they would like them to abstain from sex until marriage.
Purity rings can also be purchased by a dating couple that has made the promise that they will be celibate in their relationship until their wedding day. It is usually presented to the girl by her boyfriend but sometimes they both agree to wear them as a reminder of their commitment to each other.
So how do you choose a purity ring for either your children or for a person that you are in a relationship with. Here are a few tips that will be able to help you out.
Know the finger size of the person that you are buying the ring for as this will eliminate the possibility of buying one that is a size smaller or bigger. You can find out this by measuring the finger or carrying another ring that they wear on a regular basis to the jewelry store so that it can be appropriately measured for you.
Be careful while selecting the metal that the purity ring is made of so that you will be sure of its durability. Cheap metals are known to stain the skin and should be avoided as much as possible. The most popular metals are pure silver and gold which are long lasting especially because the rings are to be worn for a long time before they are replaced by wedding rings.
Lastly, choose a style and design that will be comfortable with the person who is going to wear it. Most people are a bit choosy when it comes to jewelry so it is better if you can go with a friend to help you choose or better yet with the person who you are buying the purity ring for.
