I didn’t get an e-ring for Mr B so I don’t personally have a lot of experience with the search, but wouldn’t a men’s e-ring look a lot like a men’s wedding band?  I don’t imagine most of them would really have a high diamond setting or anything, right?

 The best thing I could think of would maybe be a men’s wedding band with only one diamond in it…is this like you were envisoning?

 for starters.  Just because they call it a wedding band doesn’t mean is has to be one!

 HTH, or let me know if I’m on the completely wrong track and I’ll see what else I can find.

We thought about doing this, but Darling Husband eventually decided against it.  However, in places in South America, when a couple gets engaged, they exchange silver rings.  When they get married, they replace those rings with gold.  I always liked that idea, and it might be nice to get him ring that will be replaced by his wedding band.

i got him a[n expensive office] chair instead of a ring.  we’re a lot more practical than romantic, most of the time, though.  if you can’t find a suitable ring for him, what about a watch or something else he might need?

I got my fiance a fancy (i.e. expensive) Craftsman toolbox – he was as happy as a clam!

Don’t they exchange rings at engagement in Germany, too? Neat tradition!

i got him an mp3 player! i have a good friend that wears a plain silver band on his right hand as his engagement ring. it’s cute b/c he’s totally not a guy that wears jewelry.

My guy loves his titanium wedding band. And they’re really inexpensive too–his was less than $300! And the company will resize if he gains or loses weight.

We got my fi an inexpensive sterling silver ring.  He decided that he will just wear it as a symbol of being "spoken for" up until the big day, but only sport his wedding band after the wedding.  He started a new job soon after we got engaged and he refers to his band as his "whore repellant" since he works with a bunch of single & looking women.  It’s cute!  I would splurge on some diamonds for his band instead and just keep the e-ring inexpensive.

My hubby had one when we were first engaged but he lost it in the ocean!  What a waste of money.  If you buy your man a ring, just make sure they’re reminded of jewelry care, like not wearing it to the beach or while mowing the lawn     🙂

I got my Fiance an engagement ring from Tiffany.  I knew he wouldn’t wear it after we were married, so I didn’t want to spend a lot, but I wanted it to be nice.  He loved it.  I knew he’d be proposing soon so I got it and had it on hand.  After he proposed, I went into our room and got it and proposed back to him.  He calls it his "mengagement ring" and is actually pretty proud of it.  Tiffany has a pretty good selection of silver rings to choose from.

My Fiance is French…and it is custom to give the man a gift after the engagement.

 

I bought him a Mont Blanc Pen – it was also his 30th bday…

I wanted to give my FH a nice present since he was spending so much on the ring, so I shopped around and ended up getting a nice replica of Brancusi’s statue "The Kiss". He loves it and it’s something that a) represents our love and b) we can display when we move in.

i knew when my fiance was going to propose b/c he is terrible at surprising me and is just too obvious about things… so i figured i would surprise him too. I bought a ring to give to him when he popped the question to me. So we ended up exchanging rings when he proposed. He was not expecting it at all but ended up loving it! (too bad he lost it a few months ago. 🙁 I told him he has to buy another one while its still available to replace it.) We thought about making that be his wedding ring since he liked the design so much or he would just wear it on his right hand later on, but we haven’t decided on that yet.

Fiance wanted a ring, and he rides a Harley Davidson.  We found a pretty 14 k gold ring at their store that had a cool celtic design on it.  After he gets his real ring, he can still wear this one on his right hand.  He wanted a ring for the symbol same as mine, that he is committed and engaged to be married.  It helps out a lot when he has ladies in his line of work hitting on him all the time!  I can’t blame them, he’s a hottie!  My advice is to look for men’s rings that are a bit more casual and fun, something he can wear in the future.

We are going into a 2 year engagement, so early on I got him an "engagment ring".  It is a custom made jade ring, the whole thing is his design.  It’s black jade about 3 inches thick and has his last name engraved in japanese in it.  It is absolutely beautiful.  We found a jade jeweler in hawaii to do it and they did such a great job.  It was pretty pricey but so worth it.
