My husband was insistent on having an engagement ring, too! As soon as he proposed he said, “K, future wife, I want a ring, too. I even know what I want. Can we go get it?”
Lots of people were really confused as to why he would want an engagement ring–some people even thought we were already married! But we had a 17-month engagement and he didn’t want to feel left out. I was perfectly ok with him having an engagement ring, too! If I’m off the market, so is he!
If your man had an e-ring, what does he do with it now? His wasn’t expensive ($60 tungsten) and it just sits in my jewelry box.

My Fiance wanted a ring too! Before he proposed, I would occationally wiggle my ring finger in his direction and he would do it right back 🙂 We both have aquamarines, my in set in white gold, his in silver. I plan on wearing my e-ring on my right hand after the wedding and he will put his away for safe keeping. I love it when he wears his engagement ring around proudly. It’s so cute!

He didn’t want one, he’s not much of a ring guy to begin with. The funny thing was once we got our marriage bands he liked it so much he wanted to start wearing it but decided to wait til the big day.

Darling Husband had a silver band when he got deployed. I don’t know where it is. He moved it to his pocket in his BDUs because apparently the army frowns on you wearing a wedding ring if you’re not married and you’re in uniform.

@rosiebear–cute!! I never thought of having “matching-ish” rings!! That’s cool!
@verosara–isn’t it funny how attached they get to the ring?! Sometimes I think they like looking married just as much as we do!!

It’s not really an engagement ring, because I got him one before he proposed. He weras it everyday on his right hand. 🙂

We got eachother rings before we were engaged. He got me the Cartier Trinity ring for my birthday which I wore on my left hand. Then I bought him the Cartier Double C Decor ring for Christmas. I wore my ring every day until I got my ering. He still wears his ring… for one more day. He has decided to take it off 6 months before our wedding so wearing his wedding band will be special.

My hubby has two! It was actually my idea to get him one, I just thought it was unfair that I get a ring even though we decided to get married as a couple. (But of course the rings I bought him were way cheaper:) One is stainless steel and one black tungsten. He doesn’t wear the steel one anymore (it was his first) because he fell in love with the black tungsten. He wears it on his right hand every day.

Haha, my Fiance found his engagement ring before we found mine! So we ordered it, and the moment we picked it up he put it on his finger and it’s been there ever since. He’s not getting a wedding ring, though. The ring that he wears now is the one he’ll wear for our wedding and beyond unless it breaks (it’s ceramic).

That’s really interesting… I’ve never heard of men wearing engagement rings. That’s cool, though… It seems like that would promote more equality… I doubt it ever crossed my FI’s mind, but he isn’t one for any type of men’s jewelry, really.

I wanted him to have one, but we decided to save the money for something else. I have seen it done, though. I love the idea.

The “man-gagement” ring is a big thing now. My SO told me once we get engaged he wants one too, which im absolutely perfect with. I told him along time ago before we discussed him having a ring that if he got me a ring id get him a watch he wanted (which was like $1,600).. now that he wants a ring.. that will be my engagement gift to him and the watch will be my wedding present to him.

My Fiance proposed to me around Dec & I wanted to get him an ering too… he already wore a promise ring but it was old & he wanted to get a better one. I told him not to get a new one, cause we’re getting married soon & we’ll just use the money towards his wedding band. But I got him his ering for Valentine’s day & he loves it so much! We’re going to use our promise rings as our wedding bands at the ceremony & then buy our wedding bands on our honeymoon in Mexico :). We’ll probably wear our erings on our right hand after we’re married.

I had bought my fiance a ring, before he was my fiance, that had a verse inscribed inside. It was brushed stainless and fit perfectly on his left hand. He proposed not long after and we considered the ring I gave him his own engagement ring 🙂 I love in our engagement pics that we both have rings on!
