How do you feel about them? I bought my fiance an engagement ring, he and I proposed to one another. He proposed to me at falling water In Uniontown PA. I already had his ring and I gave it to him the day that we came home. He seems to be a lot happier to show it off to people, he is so excited To call me his fiance constantly.

    I got my fiance an engagement ring too. He's never owned jewelery before and wanted to try it out so I decided to surprise him. It's a wood ring made from recycled skateboards. He loves it

    My fiance has a man-gagement ring, he was jealous I got to wear something I think! He wanted people to know he is engaged right away like me and I thought that was adorable 馃グ

    I misread the title as management rings and I was thoroughly confused 馃ぃ
    I think it's a fun idea! DH started wearing his college ring again just to get used to having something on his finger.

    So at first I totally read your post title as 'ManAGEment' rings, and I was like what the heck are those? Lol. I really love both of your rings and see no issue with a man wearing his ring prior to getting married. Even though FH is waiting to wear his ring until after our wedding ceremony, I have always felt like the tradition of the woman being the only one to wear a ring to openly show she's "committed" was outdated an outdated tradition anyway. P.S., Uniontown is a half hour from where I live! Small world Smiley shame

    Oh i totally agree! He was saying that he should be able to "flaunt some blang" too! Haha. I think it is wonderful when guys want to be apart of things like that.

    I think it's cute. I almost got my fh one as he once said he didn't like shopping for my engagement ring as he felt like he was buying me or marking me. We got engaged at laurel highlands on the observation deck at the caverns. We lived a bit in California PA so right there in the monvalley with you lol. Also if you don't mind me asking where did you get his ring? I'm looking for something similar for my dude.

    I think it's a really sweet thing to do! Actually where my family comes from the tradition is for both people have an engagement ring. When a proposal happens, there is usually a ring for each person and they tend to match (it's usually a gold band) . It is also worn on the right hand instead of the left until they are married, then the bands get switched over to the left. My dad was entirely confused as to why my FH wasn't wearing his band lol he is not from the same culture so we stuck to the American way but I had to explain it to my dad more than once why he doesn't have a ring.

    It makes a lot of sense for a man to wear something to show that he's committed to his fiance, but FH wasn't on board with a mangagement ring. He's never worn jewelry before, so he wasn't comfortable with it. He wants the most simple wedding band we can find and nothing extra.

    DH didnt get an engagement ring, but I didnt like the idea of only me getting jewelery, so he picked out a fancy watch. It was his engagement watch - he's really into fancy watches.

    I got my FH a ring as well. I鈥檓 actually the one who technically proposed to him. He said he took his ring off recently and it felt super weird and he lives to show it off to people. It鈥檚 a silicone groove ring so it鈥檚 apparently comfortable.

    FH doesn't have a mangagement ring but I got him a promise ring on our 1st anniversary after he'd gotten me one a couple of months before. I think it's nice when the other person has something to wear as well.

    I actually got my FH a promise ring before he proposed. He loves it so much that he tells everyone it鈥檚 his engagement ring now that we are engaged. I鈥檓 sure he would be pretty sad if he didn鈥檛 have a ring, so I鈥檓 glad he loves it still!
