More and more guys are wearing what some are calling a “man-gagement” ring, from mainstream designers like Scott Kay.
“I think people are really just open to looking for new ways to commemorate their relationship, to celebrate their love and showing it earlier on before the big day,” said Elayne Fluker of brides.com.
In fact, the tradition of presenting his and hers engagement rings to one’s beloved is said to date all the way back to the 15th century. In many European countries, couples exchange matching gold bands before tying the knot. Now, the male engagement ring is starting to take hold here in the United States.
