I haven’t bought it yet, but I’m planning on getting him a nice pocket watch. It’s funny, I was planning this and once, during a wedding discussion, he mentioned he wanted a top hat and cane. He said he wanted to look regal, like somebody who would check the time on a pocket watch πŸ™‚ I’m going to give it to him after he proposes, and he can use it on our wedding day. It’ll be good too, since neither of us will, hopefully, have our phones on us as a time reference.

It’s this one: http://www.amazon.com/Charles-Hubert-Paris-Mechanical-Pocket-Watch/dp/B002NSMFF0/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC?ie=UTF8&coliid=I745PHI89XG1E&colid=202OQ31I3R4YP

@Mashiara:  I don’t understand why some people have given you and your Fiance that kind of response. I think it’s a very sweet gesture on your part. My Fiance has never voiced that he wanted an e-ring because he already has a ring on his finger….a promise ring. When we first started dating, he gave me a beautiful promise ring and I wanted to do the same. I surprised him with tungsten ring and had a message engraved in it for his birthday last year. We both wore our promise rings on our “wedding finger” until we became engaged 7 months later. He still wears his promise ring and loves it.

i got a promise ring from my fiance and afterwards he started saying that he wanted to have something that said he belonged to me. at first i was going to get a pocket watch (he loves watches!), but i decided to save that for our wedding. so i got him a ring for his birthday and he loved it! he wears it all the time. his buddies like to give him a hard time about it (they’re marines, it’s what they do, lol), but they think it’s cool- even if they won’t admit it. the girlfriends/wives of his buddies love it and are always making him show it to people.

@Mashiara: I still wear my promise ring on my right hand and I plan on wearing on my wedding day. Like yours, my promise ring has a diamond but nothing compared to my e-ring but I love it so much that I didn’t want to put it away and never wear it again.

As far as the engraving, when I ordered the ring I had the option of engraving it for free and I thought it was a really cute idea so I went ahead with it. I ordered my FI’s find on Zales. He didn’t know about the engraving until I gave it to him. His reaction was priceless. He never expected it πŸ˜‰

ive posted before about this… i bought my Fiance and myself matching commiment rings when we got engaged, they are engraved tungsten and we both wear them on our right hands. 

hes not a ring type man but he actually loves it and he said he plans to wear it after the wedding. 

  i will also be giving my Fiance a pocket watch for the wedding.he collects them and has all of his deceased fathers.  i am buying mini ones for the groomsmen as well.

He didn’t ask for anything, but he’s pretty traditional, so I’m not surprised!

I got my fiance a tungsten bracelet as an engagement gift.  It should go nicely with his tungsten wedding band!

I love this idea! I brought it up to Fiance and he looked at me like I had 6 heads and responded “what would I do with an engagement ring?”…Uhh, wear it? He’s pretty traditional so I’m not surprised (I got him a big fancy 50” plasma instead of a ring), but I really do love the idea of both partners having a ring!

We both wore engagement rings. Shortly after we got engaged we went wedding band shopping for Mr. LK. At that time he decided that he, too, wanted an engagement ring. So I bought him a gold Claddagh ring that he chose, and he wore it every day until a few hours before our wedding ceremony. Now he wears his wedding ring every day and his Claddagh sits in my jewelry box while Mr. LK figures out what he wants to do with it.

You have to do what works for the two of you and ignore anyone who has something negative to say about it. It’s their problem, not yours.

I commented on the other thread about this as well – Fiance really wants his own ring. We’ll get him something eventually, because he’s been nagging me non-stop in the meantime.

But I thought I’d post again because I just met a couple this past weekend, and the Fiance in their relationship went out and bought himself a ring after he proposed. After he saw how happy she was with hers, he decided he wanted something fancy for himself so he went ahead and bought it.

I don’t understand the reactions your getting, who cares if he wants a ring!

Funny that you posted this, because on a couple of occasions my fiance has asked if I wanted him to wear a ring.  He isn’t the type to mention something unless he likes the idea.  So yesterday, I ordered him a titanium ring.  I did propose to him, so it’s only fair he has a ring too. πŸ™‚

My FI’s titanium ring came in today.  Here’s a pic of our e-rings together.  πŸ™‚
