Rings in a non-engagement situation

Would you ever give your SO a ring as a present in NO WAY related to engagement/commitment?

Yes. We both did before we were married.

As a female in a straight relationship, I don't think I would give them one, but I'd love to receive a nice ring that doesn't have to symbolize anything.

Yes I was considering a promise ring for the both of us.

I might. It would depend on the situation. I'm not a big jewelry wearer so I wouldn't really want one for me.

Yeah, I wouldn't even accept a ring as a wife. It's not my thing.

I don't see why not I had my engagement ring and then my fiance at the time bought me another ring of white Sapphires. Just because you are given a ring it doesn't have to symbolize anything.

No. I think that's silly. I think the only ring you need is the actual engagement ring.

I have had a promise ring before and I think rings are a great gift..but you need to be sure that your partner understands that the ring is in for engagement or commitment purposes - solely as a gift. I might recommend discussing it first so that there are no shockers or hurt feelings when you give the ring

I didn't want to give him a ring, but he really wanted one, so I got him one. I've had one for awhile. Mostly because at the job I had I'd always hear "Well if you don't have a ring on your finger it doesn't mean anything" So he got me a really nice one. :3

I would have in the beginning but he explained to me that it would make expectations we're not ready for since it would be a reminder of getting married at some point and we're a couple that doesn't really think about possible marriage, we're only 20

I've have a promise ring, but that is indeed related to commitment

Yep, if she was someone who was into wearing rings. Doesn't have to be engagement exclusive

About a year before we got engaged my fiance gave me a "diamond" ring. It's an iron horse-shoe nail that a blacksmith bent into the shape of a ring. It has a diamond stamped on one side of it. I wore it every day until we got engaged.
