    I proposed to him and he wore his ring almost every day. It was an oxidised silver band with gold inlay, now he wears his hammered gold band every day, same as me.

    Its actually a tradition in my husbands family to have an “engagement” ring for the men and he told me he wanted to keep up the tradition. I had an inkling he was going to propose so I went out and bought him a simple yellow gold band. After he proposed to me, I told him I had a surprise for him and gave it to him. It was nice to both have something to wear. We did however get him a different wedding band that is more flashy (2 tone band). He swaps between the 2 sometimes. Very happy we did it that way 🙂

    We had a mutual proposal, so I bought my fiance an engagement ring. Unfortunately it’s little big and not resizeable (despite the fact that he tried it on within the exchange window but he told me it fit fine *eyeroll* lol). It’s steel, wood and deer antler, so while it looks great I don’t see it lasting decades so I think we’ll buy something else for him as a wedding band.

    My husband asked to go pick out his band right after he proposed. He said if I got to wear mine then he wanted his, lol! He’s worn it every day since he picked it up at the store last July and we just got married a few weeks ago.

    His brother did almost the same thing. They both got excited to pick one out and wore it right away—through the entire engagement—and only took it off to be put back on at the wedding ceremony.

    I think it’s sweet when guys do, but nope, mine doesn’t wear one. He’s so anti-jewelry that I’m frankly surprised he didn’t say no to a wedding band. He did a trial run with his wedding band (wore it for 12 hours while cooking/sleeping/exercising) to make sure it fit right and was comfortable, and intends to wear it once we’re married, but no engagement ring.

    Yes, he was very keen to wear a ring and to ‘show off’ his engagement. His actually arrived before mine so he has worn it for longer than me 😅 he’s not getting another ring, his engagement ring is also his wedding ring. I’m getting a wedding band additional to my engagement ring though 😍

    My Darling Husband got a tattoo so he waited until the wedding day to get the tattoo.
