Looking for an engagement ring for your man? Learn how to find the best sparkler here.
Big gemstones, sparkly diamonds, and polished bands come to mind when we hear the word engagement ring. Traditionally worn by women and given by men, engagement rings are usually associated with women. But in today’s progressive society, you can see women proposing to their partners, breaking traditions and pushing boundaries.
Whether you are buying a ring to propose or looking for one to memorialise your betrothal, here are some things you need to keep in mind.
Men’s engagement ring can be adorned with gemstones, one of the most common are diamonds. While for the bands, the most popular choices are gold, silver, platinum and titanium. Even though the 4C’s are not as important to men’s engagement ring unlike women’s, it is better if you read and try to learn about it.
For the jewel, choose something that is ethically sourced. For the band material, pick something that you think would be comfortable for your beau to wear daily, something durable and stable that would look perfect on your man.
There are various designs for a men’s engagement ring you can choose from, though not as varied as women’s choice of styles. The easiest way to pick one is to know your partner’s preferences. The way he dresses, his jewellery (if he has any), his daily routine, and his personal taste should be the deciding factor on how you determine which one to buy.
You can also customise and dare to try a unique style that you think your soon-to-be-husband would love. If you are not yet sure about the type that is suitable for him, read our post on the Best Setting for Men’s Rings.
Like any other fine jewellery, the price of a ring will vary depending on the style and stone it has. Men’s rings may not be as expensive as women’s rings but the price can go up, especially if they are customised.
The key to finding an excellent ring for your partner is to know how much you can spend and how much you are willing to give. It is not necessary to follow the “two-month salary” rule for buying an engagement ring, it is an old practice that might not be practical nowadays.
Prevent yourself from overspending by setting a budget you are most comfortable to spend.
