What is a purity ring?
Answer: If you don't want to be overly religious about it, or you are offering it to a younger child, you can have other names for it. my two daughters always called theirs their "Daddy Rings" it symbolized that Daddy would take care of them until they had a husband to do the job. when they were older, they recognized that it was also their promise rings that they would wait for their husbands. their promise was kept to Daddy until the husband comes to love them. Daddy Rings are easier to explain to younger kids. they also mean SO much between little girls and their daddies. Answer: It is a promise made to God that you will wait to have sex until after you are married and to your husband only. True Love Waits. Any respectable guys would understand that. A purity ring is a ring that symbolizes someones commitment to God and to themselves to stay pure until they get married.
A purity ring doesn't have to be a ring, it can also be a necklace, a bracelet or some other item that represents and reminds you of your purity vow. I myself have a purity ring. I highly recommend thinking seriously before getting one because it can cause you to have more guilt when you do something sexual or break your vow completely, more so than if you did so without having made a purity vow. The reason being is that its a visible sign of your vow and if you break your vow its a reminder to you every single day of what you did but if you take it off people will start asking questions. Also people who have made a purity vow and break it are looked down on more severly than those who didn't make the vow. Hope I was of help.
A purity ring is the symbol of a commitment between one person, male or female, and God, or another person. That commitment being to maintain the purity of mind and body until they take the vows of marriage. This is not something that can only be done by someone who is pure. This can be done by anyone who wants to change the path they are on, to create a new road for themselves.
As said above, it doesn't have to be a ring and can be anything given to you that you wear as a reminder of that promise. It can carry a heavy weight, but it can also give you the time needed to slow down and think with you head and not your heart. Sometimes that is a good thing, just having the object can help a person handle wanted (or unwanted) peer pressure.
This is not something that you shoud be pressured into doing. It is a hard vow to hold true to, and should only been taken after long consideration, and discussion of both sides of the issue. It can be very rewarding when handled responsibly, and with an understanding of all the lifestyle differences, but it can also cause heart-break for those who are not really prepared for the hardships that may come with it. The ring, or object itself, is only as powerful as each person makes it. But it is a very real powerful reminder of how strong the vow you took is.
The people up here made it pretty clear... The word more commonly used is (Abstinence)
I agree with everyone above.... you should wait to have sex until marriage.
Answer: Also remember to make your own choice, and if you want to abstain, do so. If not, then don't.
Its up to you.

Hey guys, I also wear a purity ring. (: I started wearing one because I read the book "Pure" by Terra Elan McVoy! Great book! Its so inspiring. A lot of my friends didn't want to read it because they thought it was just talking about purity rings, but it actually is a story. I would recommend it to anyone thinking about getting a purity ring. And like the other people above me said, don't just get a purity ring because the Jonas Brothers have one, or one of your friends have one. My purity ring means so much to me, I have engraved inside it, "True love will wait" A purity ring is a promise to God, (or yourself if your not a christian, or don't want a christian purity ring) that you won't have sex until your married, and will only have make love to your husband. "For this is the will of God, your sanctification: that you abstain from sexual immorality; that each one of you know how to control his own body in holiness and honor, not in the passion of lust like the Gentiles who do not know God"
1 Thessalonians 4:3-5 Any respectable guy, or girl, will understand this. Hope it helped! :D

Because of a 2005 ACLU Lawsuit against the Federal Government (Department of Human Health and Services) the "god" (religion) component has been removed from the rings; The US HHS department admitted that it violated the First Amendment, separation clause.
In the United Kingdom, the daughter of the Silver Ring Thing director in the UK (a christian based purity ring company) lost her lawsuit against the British School system in an attempt to wear the ring at school in violation of the schools dress code.
A 2009 report by John Hopkins finds that the rings do little to effect sexual activity, and those who take the pledge are 10% more likely to not use any form of protection.
It seems that those who don't believe in god can remain celibate too.

Thanks for the feedback!
Her dad sent it to her for her twelfth birthday. She wears it because she doesn't want to go through what her mom did (she gave birth to Selena when she was 16, and gave up he…r life for her). http://secure.jamesavery.com/jewelry/search/product/R-1347/True-Love-Waits-Ring/
A purity ring is USUALLY put on your left ring finger and then replaced with your wedding ring when you get married. Some put it on their left pinky or their right ring finge…r.
I found some at my local Christian store. And I found very nice ones too. I found some that were different. I found one that said TRUTH and it was 14.99. But then I foun…d another one that had a cross and a heart and that was 19.99. But I think the cheapest is probably around 15 dollars. The most is probably 149.00. But that is online. But if you go to a Christian store it is probably cheaper.
Hi, In my personal opinion... Since purity rings are considered (most of the time) to be of a christian nature it would depend on your relationship with God, if you… have confessed and been forgiven, gorget about the past. On the other hand, wearing a purity ring could do NO harm. I think its just a way to help a young person struggling with the temptation of having sex as a reminder right there. (Or at least that is why I wear mine) Go for it!!! Remember, you dont even have to tell anyone if you dont want to, or even wear it in the typical (left hand ring finger) place. It is a commitment to yourself (and God, if that is what you should choose)
A purity ring can look like..just about anything. Most people try and stay away from rings that look like wedding rings or engagement rings though because they can be confused… for wedding or engagement rings. But you can wear a purity necklace, ring or bracelet. The important thing is the symbolism to you. Purity rings are for those who are religious, where as chastity rings are for non-religious people pledging abstinence. sometimes people who want purity rings have a ring with a cross on it or another religious symbol. Other people choose to engrave something like "True love waits" on a silver band. Purity/chastity rings are often worn on the left hand on your ring finger (one day to be replaced by a marriage ring) though many people now wear them on their right hand (ring finger) simply to make sure no one confuses it for their wedding ring, this is more of a problem if you have a ring that looks like an engagement or wedding ring.
you can get a purity ring at any age, they start at size 4. But you should only wear it if you are fully comitted and know what it stands for not just because some famous peop…le wear it. I have one and it's really nice to see that other people are wearing them you could get them almost anywhere and they are not expensive.
yes it can What matters is not what the ring is like, whether it is gold, platinum, copper - or plastic. What really matters is the content of your heart when you make a …commitment. I have a question can it also be a plain silver ring? oh and wear can you get a plain ring??
The biggest seller I know of is James Avery. If you want to find something more individual, try any Christian magazine. They usually have some pages of ring choices from diffe…rent people you may not be able to find.
It's more of a personal commitment of promising yourself to god and the person you will marry. No one has to write down their personal promise, but it's always cool to write d…own when you did promise to yourself to wait for sex after marriage and see how long it's been. Pledging your purity is the most honorable thing you can do for yourself and your walk with God.
Well, basically a purity ring means that you are not going to loose your virginity before mariage.
Purity Rings signifies that the person wearing it chooses not to have sex for the first time until they are married.
It doesn't matter how old you are. All you have to do is be faithful to yourself and your religion. Don't get one if you don't plan on keeping that promise. That's what it is,… a promise.
purity rings are a christian concept- stating that you will remain abstinent and pure until marriage. However you don't neccesairly have to be a christian to have a puri…ty ring. Go for it! However my personal opipion would be not to get one if your culture frowns upon them... being a Christian (Quaker) they are not! :-)
