Justin Bieber's 'Pre-Engagement Ring' to Selena Gomez Is Cute, But Silly

So, you know that adorable "J" ring Justin Bieber gifted unto Selena Gomez for Valentine's Day? Yeah, well, word is it's a pre-engagement ring. That isn't an engagement ring, but a pre-engagement ring. Big difference.

According to a source, "[The ring] was kind of a pre-engagement ring, really. They’re too young to get married, but they are just head over heels in love with each other and they want to spend the rest of their lives together ... It symbolizes their intention to be together for a long time.”

Oh my God, that's so sweet. Not. Pre-engagement rings are for the birds.

Selena and Justin are lovely and adorable and blah, blah, blah, but I really don't see a need for a pre-engagement ring between the two of them. Or between anyone.

Break out the big guns -- the diamonds, the bling, the jewels -- when you actually do get engaged. Adding a new piece of jewelry to your hand is part of the fun -- it's a visual reminder to you and the world that, holy shit, you're getting married. No, it isn't all about the jewelry, but it's kind of cool to look down at your hand every once in a while after getting engaged and seeing a finger party.

Also, there's the whole "what the hell is a pre-engagement" thing. If you're planning on getting engaged, married, whatever, you kind of know it already, right? It's a discussion that's been had between your partner and you. And if you and your partner have gone as far as to have such a serious conversation, you shouldn't need a piece of jewelry to solidify things. The words themselves should be enough. The ring is to solidify an actual engagement, not the promise of one.

I'm chalking this one up to the fact that Justin and Selena are just young, though. And rich. They need to spend their money on something. So why not a brand new shiny diamond pre-engagement ring? Hey, it's definitely smarter than the real deal.

What are your thoughts on pre-engagement rings?

These two are barely out of their teens...how can this NOT be cute? At least they realize that they ARE too young to get "engaged for real" but still want something to declare their feelings for each other. More power to them...at least they aren't getting married yet (YIKES). Give the kids a break...isn't this just today's version of a "promise ring"???

Of course you think it's dumb. Ur old. They're just being teenagers "in love" simple as that. It's just a lil cutsie faze I don't think u need to be so mean about it

Im happy to see you happily pecking away about people who aren't even remotely in your age or interest group. I think the "pre-eng" ring thing is cute. I had countless friends get them early in college, and one in high school after prom. Did ANY of those people get married? one couple. But did ALL of those couples grin like idiots and walk on clouds proclaiming their love on high? Yep. they did and no one regrets something like that. Its a sweet, young thing to do. Im happy to see Justin Bieber being a kid. He is one. I'd rather this than getting married in vegas three times a year. I'd be proud to be this kids MOM, and thats all I should really worry about as an adult woman.

That's their choice.  What's wrong with testing the waters?  Honestly, with how old they are, I think it's a pretty sweet and mature way to show the strength of their relationship while also acknowledging their age.

SOOOO basically she's wearing a "promise" ring or what my mom/dad called a "going steady" ring lol...  Cute... Really doesn't matter what we think it's their lives.

I think the author sounds pretty bitter. Its something I sincerely wish that someone had been willing to do for me at some point in my life, especially when I was in my late teens.

Its cute, sincere, and sweet.

Who seriously can have something negative to say about young, responsible, adorkable love?

@Cherish Rose Baker,

If you're going to correct someone else, please proofread your own post. "Your" means belonging to you. "You're" means you are.

I agree with Starlight1968 and the4mutts


I would have liked a promise ring or pre-engagment ring.  I think it's cute and I'm 26
