What makes a piece of jewelry a purity ring is the intention with which the wearer wears it; the ring itself can look like almost anything. Musician Nick Jonas of the Jonas Brothers had his purity ring made at Disney World, while his brother Kevin got his purity ring at Tiffany’s. Even if your purity ring does not have any messages or symbols on it that show other people that it is a purity ring, simply wearing it can be part of your spiritual armor. In an age when so many people get married because they want to be the star of a wedding and not because they want a lifelong commitment, a purity ring can also be a reminder to the wearer that real relationships are not just about jewelry and material things. You don’t have to rush into a relationship just so you can show off your engagement ring, because your ring finger isn’t empty as it is. The purity ring is a reminder to you and to everyone else that you are free to wait for true love and for the lifelong commitment of marriage.
