I enjoyed that article, thanks for posting it. I never knew that jewelers tried and failed to market engagement rings to men in the 1920’s, although I had wondered before why they were practically unheard of. Interestingly enough I remember that, less than two years ago, I spent a considerable amount of time ranting to my father that engagement rings were outdated and a sign of ownership, that it wasn’t fair that men didn’t wear engagement rings, and that I wouldn’t want one. Now here I am shopping for an engagement ring! But I guess I got lucky, my SO really wants a ring for himself too, so it is fair.

I read that outloud to my Fiance.  We both thought it was interesting.  Funny how jewelers were trying to market a male engagement ring in the 1920s.  Imagine if that had taken off?!

My Fiance has an engagement ring – we purchased it on our first holiday together, in Crete.  He  always said he wanted a ring…which pleased me, as my ex H point blank refused to wear even a wedding ring!
