So, I just got engaged, and when my FI and I took my ring to be resized, he asked if it woudl be weird if he started wearing a ring now, too. I absolutely love the idea, and am just wondering if anyone else has gotten a “mangagement” ring?

And my answer is no. It’s not like he’s going to stack it with a wedding band too. If he got an engagement band, why would he get a wedding band? They are going to be the same thing for a guy.

@Miss Tattoo: I haven’t purchased anything yet, but I was thinking of getting it engraved before the wedding, so it could be a double-duty ring, but would still have something special for the actual wedding.

Congrats and welcome to WB 🙂 I gave my FI a watch…we had already gone ring shopping and he was saving up but fell in love with a high-end watch. I bought it for him with the understanding that he could wear it after he proposed 🙂 Now he shows it off as his e-watch!

“mangagement” ring – maybe you should start a new trend!

I didn’t, but I don’t think it’s a bad idea.
I once totally came onto a guy who was engaged. So embarrassing! It could have been avoided if he was wearing a ring!

My husband has an engagement ring and a wedding band. He has a black tungsten mangagement ring and a regular tungsten wedding band. He wears both every day and likes telling people that the black ring is his engagement ring.

My FI and I went looking for a ring for him, but he couldn’t find one he liked that would accompany a man-sized wedding band. Sometimes he wears his favorite ring on his left hand anyway, and it was surprising the amount of shit my friends gave him for it when they saw it one time.

@latoya: That’s so cute!
I think it’s a sweet idea. My FI isn’t much for jewellery so I will be happy if he wears just the wedding band. Lol.

I think guys should wear their ring before the wedding. I think it’s an old tradition that the woman does and the man doesn’t. I doubt I’ll have a separate wedding and engagement, I just have a ring, so why should the guy be different?
On a practical note, no I haven’t gotten his ring yet, time and his dislike of shopping haven’t been on my side.

I didn’t get him a ring, but I did buy him a nice guitar. I think its nice for the guy to get something that he can keep for a long time and will remind him of this time in his life.

Aww, no my fiance doesn’t have one. But my brother wore my grandpa’s ring while he was engaged. 🙂 So sweet!

I did! He wears it on his right hand now. I wanted him to be marked too!

@jayce: Me too! I was totally hitting on a guy when someone walked up and asked how his fiancee was doing. WOMP WOMP.

I did! He wears a Tiffany men’s ring, actually (lucky dog). He’ll switch it to his right hand when he starts wearing his wedding band 🙂
He loves it, and I do, too!
