I'm pretty sure the bible says not to make promises to god and to let your "yes be yes," and your "nos be nos." If there is a god, I wouldn't want to make a promise to him. I mean, if he sends you to hell for no good reason, I can only imagine what would happen if you broke a promise you made with him. I mean, look at the old testament. When people broke covenants it was pretty heavy stuff. You do what you want, but if there is a god, you better make sure you keep your promise. But, to be safe, I would just decide not to have sex. Why do you have to make a promise? God knows your heart, right?

I kind of have to agree with Michael, I am not 100% sure what the Bible says about promises, but God forgives all. You can rededicate your life to God and start living in the way that he wants you to, but he will forgive for anything you do that you perceive as wrong. I think that you can make a promise to try to not make these choices. But I think that the promise you make that is most important is the promise you make to yourself since you are the one responsible for your decisions. if having a purity ring will help remind you of this promise to yourself and to God, then go for it. I don't think that having had sex should be a deterrant to having this ring because I believe that sex is beautiful and completely pure, i think considering it impure makes it sound dirty instead of a personal and intimate act. So yes, in my opinion it is totally ok, you are just getting it to promise to remain not having sex until you are with the one.
