Men's Engagement Rings: To Do or Not To Do?

A recent article in the New York Daily News (source) discusses the trend of “mangagement” rings, meaning women buying their fiancés engagement rings. Whether or not it’s for you and your fiancé, it’s an interesting idea, don’t you think? Check this one out:

You can tell it’s an engagement ring, but there’s a certain tailored masculinity to it that makes it very unlike a typical women’s engagement ring.

On the other hand, Chris Easter, Co-Founder of says don’t believe the hype when it comes to men’s engagement rings (source).

So readers, what do you think? Should this one be left alone? Or it is time to change the tradition and buy your man some bling?

I believe this ring is geared more towards same-sex male partners rather than opposite-sex partners. I thought when I read the article that they were saying they wanted to give same-sex partners the same joy that opposite-sex partners have when they get engaged.

Thanks for your comment! In the article referenced, it does talk about how women are starting to buy their fiances "man-gagement" rings to wear during their engagement (since women wear engagement rings for the entire engagement, why shouldn't a man wear one, too?), so I think this could apply to both same-sex and opposite-sex couples.
