My Fiance and I were just talking about this a couple days ago. I like the idea!

I got my Fiance one…it’s black titanium.  I was actually surprised that he wanted to wear it.  When I gave it to him, I was like-you don’t have to wear it if you don’t want to.  He was thrilled to have it though and wears it everyday.

Well we didn’t get him an engagement ring, but we got his wedding ring made early and he wears it all the time because he likes to. Though now that I think about it, before then he wore his blue diamond ring after he proposed. He has quite the jewel and ring collection (he loves gemstones).

It is actually pretty common in other countries for an engaged man to wear an engagement band.

I gave him an XBOX 360. He likes to joke that his rock is so much bigger than mine.

Like Scissors, mine got a Playstation 3, some games, and a new computer monitor ๐Ÿ™‚ He’s not really a jewellery kind of guy but I did think it only fair that he get something to mark the occasion too!

I am saving up to get my guy something too… when he proposes.  I think I’m going to buy him a whitewater kayak.  I’ve always thought that if he saved and worked to buy me something, then he should get something in return. ๐Ÿ™‚

I bought mine an expensive golf club (driver maybe? who knows…) after he got me my ring.  However, prior to the engagment I purchased him a PS3 (when they just just just came out!) so we are even!

my Fi doesn’t wear one, but my best friend is engaged to a great guy from the Netherlands, and apparently it’s very common, and quite a tradition for the bride to plan a “proposal” of sorts to her Fiance within the year before the wedding.  My friend ended up sending him on a scavenger hunt and then “proposing” it was realy cute!!

In Brazil, there’s no such thing as diamond engagement rings, so both the men and women wear an “engagement ring” — basically they wear their wedding ring on the ring finger of their right hand, and switch to the left hand once they’re married.

I love it, bc if you see a guy with a ring on his right hand, you know he’s engaged.  I find it unfair that I’m “claimed for” but no one knows he is too just by looking at him!

I gave my husband an engraved stainless steel band when he got deployed. He wore it as a wedding band for awhile until people asked too many questions. he always kept it with him. can’t really have a lot of personal belongings over there and a ring seemed appropriate

I got my husband a ring when we got engaged. He didn’t think it was fair that I showed the world I was “taken” and he didn’t, so he told me he would like a ring as well. We ended up getting it soldered to his wedding band, so now his two rings just look like one bigger ring.
