Engagement Rings for Men: the Next Big Thing

wedding ring engagement ring diamond jewelry

Traditionally, custom dictated that only a woman would be expected to wear an engagement ring when she was betrothed, and this was never changed. While engagement rings were once considered to be a symbol of a business transaction in which she was pledged to one party, they have since evolved into a symbol of love and commitment, a promise of a man's intention to marry his beloved, and proof that he would be able to properly care for her in future years. Traditionally, engagement rings are solely symbolic of a man's feelings for the woman he intends to marry, a symbol of his devotion, and a physical representation of his desire to spend the rest of his life with her. However, modern customs have changed this. As is true of most traditions, customs evolve over time as new fashions gain popularity and take root in the community. Men's engagement rings are a growing trend that has emerged in recent years. Men's engagement rings, which were previously only available to women, have now broken down the traditional gender divide in this time-honored tradition.

Men's Engagement rings Have A Long And Interesting History

A watch was once considered the traditional gift for a woman to give to her future husband as a token of her affection, as men's engagement rings were unheard of at that time. With the growing demand for gender equality steadily increasing over the years, it was not unheard of for a woman to actually propose to a man in the past few decades. An engagement ring for men was given as a token of affection in a few of these instances, but this was extremely rare. Yet another issue that contributed to the rise in popularity of men's engagement rings was the perception that it was unfair for a woman to be "marked" as engaged by her engagement ring while her fiance, due to the scarcity of men's engagement rings on the market, could still be perceived as potentially available in a culture that valued gender equality. The opportunity to present a gift to her future husband that displayed her love for him as much as his ring did for her was provided by a men's engagement ring, even in traditional proposal situations.
