houndog:  DH got an engagement watch/wedding present watch.  Honestly it was mostly a wedding present because he got it a month before we got married.

My fiance wants an engagement ring, so I’m getting him one that he’ll wear on his right hand. We considered getting something that he could wear on his left hand and then solder to another band to make a wedding band, but that got a bit too complicated, so the right hand ring seemed to be the best option.

I asked my Fiance if he wanted a watch, a ring, or some other engagement present, and he really wanted a ring, so I got him one. We exchanged rings when he proposed this past Christmas, and he wears it every day. We plan on getting him a different wedding band that is rose gold (his ER is tungsten). After the wedding he can wear the wedding band on most days and wear the tungsten ER on days he is going to be out in the field filming or doing something that might damage his ring.

My brother got a QUALO band with their wedding date engraved on the inside.  He wears it every day, and will probably continue wearing it after his wedding next week, but will use his fancy wedding ring when the exchange rings during the ceremony.  I will probably do the same thing for SO when we get engaged… kind of “wedding ring training wheels” so he can get used to wearing a ring every day.

I proposed to my Fiance with a crappy fake gold band from H and M as a stand in! I didn’t know his size anyway, and wanted him to help choose his actual ring. Afterwards, we picked out a ring online and took his size, he was thrilled when I told him there are matte black tungsten rings. He’s pretty unconventional, and we have a running joke that he wants to paint everything matte black (he wears black, has a matte black bike, wanted to paint the car matte black, etc. etc.) We still have 6 months before the wedding, but he insists on wearing his matte black ring now as a sign of his engagement – he will wear the same one as his wedding ring.

Darling Husband has a titanium ring that he wore on his left hand and has now switched to his right hand. He has a palladium wedding band. Darling Husband watches a program where one of the presenters wears both rings on his left hand.

My bf will get an engagement ring, he wants one. We will probably get a slightly nicer band for the wedding band but he says he will switch back and forth between the 2 rings after marriage. He’s not a jewelry guy at all so wearing it as a rhr is not really an option he likes

My Fiance wears an engagement ring. He’ll get a wedding ring as well and the engagement ring will either go in a box or move to his right hand. I love it!

My Fiance and I never considered an engagement ring, but I got him an engagement watch, which I porposted to him with.  We each did our own proposal but his was the official one that we announced to others and consider the date we became engaged.  He loves his watch but is very excited to wear his weeding ring because people can’t tell that he’s engaged just because he is wearing a watch, and he is very much looking forward to people knowing his is married by seeing his ring.

Here’s my FI’s engagement ring, it’s tungsten carbide and its engraved inside. He wanted one when I got my promise ring. He’s a mechanic so he only wears it when we go out. It’ll be his wedding band too.

My fiance was so excited about getting engaged!  When we picked up my ring, I saw him looking at the mens rings.  He turned to me and asked, “Do I get an engagement ring too?”  It was adorable and I was beyond thrilled.  I said, “If you want one, yes absolutely.”  He picked out a very nice band.  He has been wearing it everyday and never takes it off.  I asked him if he wanted a different one for the wedding but he said, “No, this is the ring I want.  I will wear it for the wedding too.”  If your significant other wants an engagement ring too…why not!

I gave my Darling Husband an engagement ring shortly after I got mine. He wore it throughout our engagement and also on the wedding day. You can see it on his right hand here:

Like many prevoius bees’s mentioned: Wearing an engagement ring helped me get used to wearing a ring every day. His engagement ring did the same thing for him. Eventually the size didn’t fit him that well, so he usually wears it on a chain around his neck now-a-days instead of on his fingers, but he still loves it very much.
