Guide To Men’s Engagement Rings
In this guide to men’s engagement rings, explore the settings and various details that create the perfect engagement ring just for him.
More and more men are opting to wear engagement rings along with their wedding bands. From those with traditional taste to others with more avant-garde style, there are plenty of looks to choose from to celebrate your true love and true values.
Do Men Wear Engagement Rings?
Of course they do!
Over the last decade, as traditions have evolved and couples define engagement rules on their own terms, men’s engagement rings have grown in popularity. Whether a man is proposed to first, a couple chooses matching engagement rings to exchange with one another, or he selects his own ring after proposing, each couple should decide what’s best for them.
Most “traditional” engagement rings, sometimes referred to as women’s engagement rings, are available in sizes 3 through 11 and can be worn by women, men, or gender noncomforming individuals within that size range. For those wanting Solitaires, Toi et Moi rings, or Three Stone settings in a larger ring size, the custom-design process is an option.
The most popular men’s engagement rings are similar in style to wedding rings, however.
Which Finger Do Men’s Engagement Rings Go On?
Traditionally, in the United States, any engagement ring or wedding band is worn on the left ring finger. Some men — including the likes of Prince Charles — wear their rings on their pinky instead. Whatever finger an individual chooses, the most important thing is to measure your ring size beforehand.
How Much Are Men’s Engagement Rings?
The price of men’s engagement rings depends on both the budget set by the couple and the style of ring chosen. Plain metal bands, such as a Round or Flat band, are the most affordable.
Diamond-accented bands like the Alternating Shapes Band, or an engagement ring like the Classic Solitaire, can be three to four times more expensive. Certain styles, like a Signet Ring or Brushed Baguette band, are priced in between.
A couple should set their engagement ring budget first and find the perfect ring within their price range.
