@jayce: maybe it is a good idea for a guy to have an engagement ring, to avoid being hit on!

having an engagement ring on my finger has gotten me out of a couple of unwanted advances. I remember when I used to tell guys that I had a boyfriend to get them to stop hittin g on me. sometimes they believed me (even if it was a lie at the time) and sometimes they did not. rings are good for that!

oh side note: I nearly forgot about this! in college, my boyfriend and I wore matching silver bands as promise rings. it was my idea, and I gave him his for his birthday. we didn’t get engaged. but I still think our promise rings were a nice idea.

I didn’t.  But then again, she didn’t get me one, either.  Neither one of us really saw the point.  Now that we are married, our plain gold wedding bands show that we are married, without being so valuable that we would be devastated if they were lost or stolen.

I got mine one!

He made the silly comment “Well thats not fair that everyone knows your engaged but they wont know about me?” So for his birthday, I surprised him with his very own “Engagement Ring”. He loves it. Its going to be his Wedding Band as well, unless he keeps losing weight at the rate he is, cuz its already to big and cant be resized!

I did, and it was actually his idea.  Before Fiance proposed, I jokingly told him about how mangagement rings were becoming trendy, and he immediately said he would want one…”If you get one, I want one too!”.  But really, I thought it was sweet that he would want to show that he is engaged as well.

After he proposed, I bought him a a plain tungsten carbide band.  He wears it everyday, even though he gets tons of flack from other men.  Lol.

He wants a yellow gold band for his wedding ring, and he will probably wear the tungsten carbide on his right hand. 

It was what Fiance wanted, and that’s what’s important!  It’s still obviously not for everyone, judging from the weird looks and comments he gets from people.

Fiance told me once: “That’s messed up. If you get two rings I should get two rings. I want BLING.”

He was, of course, joking. He has asked if he can go ahead and wear his wedding band though… And I took it away from him. 🙂

We will have no e-ring for the dude. But if you like the sentiment, go for it.

I guess it’s a tradition in Argentina ( I think that’s where Michael Buble’s fiancee is from) so he wears one.

My partner has one, he wears it on his right hand (as it fits better on that finger), though he does alternate it sometimes (especially if we are going out). 

He is still going to get a wedding band as well.

I want my Fiance to wear one! I think it’s a great idea. I actually brought it up the other day in the car. I asked him…”So…now that I have this giant diamond ring on my finger, it’s pretty obvious to men that I’m taken. But…how do women know that you’re MINE?!” lol. A lot of the paramedics at his company are women, and I’d like to say that my Fiance is very attractive, so I want them to know he’s taken! haha. I think I’ll introduce the mangagement ring to him, thanks OP, and I’ll let you know how it goes!

My fiance builds houses, so he will have to wear his wedding ring on a chain when he is at work for safety reasons. He proposed in January, and I got him a gold chain for Valentine’s Day – for now it’s a symbol of our engagement, and after we get married he can put his ring on it when necessary. He loves the symbolism and says he’ll wear it for life! We both like having a tangible reminder of our engagement.

No, but I found out (too late) that it’s tradition in the Netherlands (where my husband is from).  I would have gotten him one had I known!  I think it’s a neat idea.  🙂

I don’t think I’m going to get him one because he already has a ring that I got him for our two year anniversary (: He wears it on his right hand but it can easily be switched over and used as an engagement ring type thing. He said he doesn’t want another one anyways haha

No we didn’t do that.  But we were at the jewelry store the other day (me and my MALE FI) and said to the lady we wanted to look at engagement rings and she goes “oh, for which one of you?”

???  I mean, nothing wrong if the guy chooses to do so, I just didn’t think it was something a jeweler would ask.

@soon2bhis: Hey, whatever gets the sales right? I’m actually surprised the jewelry industry hasn’t tried pushing mangagement rings already.
