I proposed to my Fiance.  I got him a pendant, but maybe a signet ring?  Those are very masculine : )

How historical are you thinking? I’ll be getting my SO a birthday/engagement present (since most likely we’ll be getting engaged a few weeks before his birthday) a Norse Rune ring. He’s wanted it for a while.

@Evie:  I don’t have any reviews of it, since I haven’t bought anything yet. But I found the site a couple years ago (yes, that’s how long I’ve been putting off buying this thing!). Google it, since for some reason my bookmarks are being dumb – Badali Jewelry.

This is what I’m giving my bf for his engagement ring: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Dragon-Tungsten-Carbide-Celtic-Ring-Mens-Jewelry-Wedding-Band-Silver-Gold-New-/320880486568?pt=Metal_Fashion_Rings&var=&hash=item4ab5f7a8a8

I showed it to him so I know he likes it, but I’m not sure if he knows I’m buying it for him. (He knows I was going to, but I told him he needed to get re-measured and he hasn’t done it yet. The ring is in the mail so if it doesn’t fit I’ll take advantage of the seller’s lifetime warranty and just exchange it.) I was hesitant at first to get him something so cheap but I figure if that’s the one he likes then that’s the one he likes. He was looking at a lot of celtic patterns when we went ring shopping together, and he loves dragons, so I knew even before I showed it to him that it was the one. ๐Ÿ™‚

But prior to that I was considering giving him a morse code ring. Something like this: http://www.fatcowdesigns.com/prodtype.asp?CAT_ID=137

My bf is also a huge nerd (and a dancer, what a wonderful combination!). He loved the idea of morse code rings. They are definitely symbolic, the ones in that link aren’t too flashy, and they kinda fit into the historical/computer thing if you stretch it. Maybe he’d like something like that?

As far as ideas for the post-proposal proposal, I can’t help there. I’m still wondering what to do for my own bf, so I’ll be stalking this thread to see what other people suggest!

I will be doing the same however this is more expensive because it will eventually be reused as a wedding band.

If we weren’t reusing our rings I would have gone less expensive. Stainless, silver or tungsten.   We have already exchanged silver rings earlier in our relationship and that would have made a good engagement ring really.   Both we picked up at little shops run by thier artists.    His has a spinning band ontop of the band that’s got a hatched pattern it it – he considers it his little secret toy which delights my slightly adhd sweetie.  I don’t have pictures of his silver ring but I have one of his real engagement ring.   I would assume his silver ring would likely be a traveling stunt double

 

This is his ring actual engagement ring which is two tone gold with a princess cut diamond in a bezel simulated tension band with sand blasted finish:

I like that a lot! The saying is good, it has a historical background to it, it isn’t too flashy. I’m glad you were able to find something you liked. ๐Ÿ™‚
