Emerging Trend: Men’s Engagement Rings

By Jenna Fish May 22, 2018


Men's Engagement Rings

Engagement rings have always been a symbol of a promise and a commitment to get married in the near future. While traditionally given to women by their boyfriends, engagement rings are becoming more popular for men to wear. Some women are choosing to propose to their boyfriends rather than the other way around and they want a physical representation of their love to present to their boyfriends upon proposing. Additionally, LBGTQ+ couples are getting engaged now that gay marriage is legal in the U.S., and they are electing to wear men’s engagement rings to show the world their love and commitment. Outside of these two circumstances, some men simply wish to have a symbol of their engagement. Because of all of these reasons, men’s engagement rings are becoming increasingly common and are a growing trend amongst today’s engaged couples.
