A trend that is becoming more and more popular is for men to have engagement rings. Many men are very traditional where the thought of engagement rings is concerned – they see them only as something women wear. While it’s becoming more popular, some men will never want an engagement ring. But for those that do, there are many beautiful rings to choose from.
Men’s engagement rings don’t have diamonds in fancy settings. Subtle rings that are suitable for work, sports, and other activities are the best for men. Many times the engagement rings are just simple bands that may have an etching or other small embellishments. Two-tone rings are also popular and these use both white and yellow gold, or even hints of copper, to make a beautiful ring. Textured rings that have such patterns as Celtic knots or Greek keys are always wonderful, while titanium rings can be in many colors and will last forever.
Gemstones are used in some men’s engagement rings. Some rings use diamonds, but these are usually just one diamond or are used as an accent. If there are multiple diamonds, none are more highlighted than the others. Other gems are used, such as the birthstones of the bride and the groom. These can be enhanced with small diamonds, but they are used only for enhancing. Whatever is chosen, avoid pearls because these are easily damaged. If a woman is buying an engagement for her man, and she is unsure what to buy for him, she can always take him with her. They can buy each other a ring at the same time, and make it an investment as a couple. This is a great way to say that you love each other.
