@jayce: I suppose so!

And I imagine it’s really only a matter of time.  Now that you mention it I wouldn’t be surprised if someone came up with a mans version of a wedding set that somehow “manly” goes together.

I did.. well sorta 🙂 I didn’t give him his ring as an engagement ring, it was meant to be more of a promise ring. With us living so far apart I wanted to make sure others knew he was hands-off! >.<

My fiance actually wants one!! He said when someone looks at my hand, it signifies that I’m taken or soon to be taken. And he feels that in the equality of man and woman, he should be allowed to show his status without speaking as well. I wanted to bring this up to him before he said anything so his mention of this was amazing!! I’ve been looking. We have a long engagement so for me its like a promise ring from me to him. And he wants to buy it??? IDK guess I lucked up on that! But I think I will buy it myself and present it to him a year before our wedding date which is now schedule for April 7 2012.

My boyfriend actually brought this up with me a while ago! He said that it’s not fair that he doesn’t get one too once he proposes 😛 Which I really agree with. Why should the woman be the only one who is obviously taken? That’s just wrong!

My fiance said he would like to wear a claddagh now upside down and once you get married your turn it right side up… I guess it’s an old tradition or something but if that’s what he want’s I’ll find him one XD

I really like the idea–but my husband won’t even wear a wedding band, I could have never have gotten him to wear an engagement band.

I told him that I wasn’t wearing a ring unless he wore one too. We got some “engagement bands” (I think we invented that) that we can reuse as wedding rings.

@FutureMrsMcDermott: I’ve thought about getting a mangagment ring, so that other ladies know my man is taken, too! But I’ve also heard that some women find men with rings more attractive– the whole “He must be good if someone else wants him” or “He knows how to commit” kind of thing– I don’t know– apparently some women are more likely to hit on men BECAUSE they’re married/engaged…

I love the idea!!! My fiancé didn’t get a “ring” per say. He actually got my name tattooed on this ring finger. We had spoken about it since he wont be able to wear a ring at work ( safety reasons) he said he wanted to get my name tattooed. Wedding isn’t until September but he got the tattoo last weekend J so its kind of like his engagement ring.

I did, he wears it on his left hand. It’s a titanium band with a cable inlay. When we get married he will use it when we travel (we do that a lot so it makes sense for us)  to take the place of the wedding band (which will be a much more expensive metorite ring ). He was super excited about having an engagment ring. It means a lot to him.

My Fiance has a band that he wears.  It’s titanium-black and silver.  He’ll get a nicer ring when we get married.  His best friend also has a band that he got when he got engaged.  I think it’s becoming more and more popular.  Hey, we get to wear a ring, why shouldn’t they?

I didn’t, but I know several friends that did. I don’t think it’s a common practice, but I think it’s a great idea, especially if both you and your Fiance like it
