Men's engagement rings gained much popularity after the rise of double ring ceremonies, during World War 2. Today, men's engagement rings are the hottest trend among new couples. These exquisite rings are worn as a token of devotion and commitment.
Men's engagement rings symbolize their upcoming marriage. Often, men's engagement rings are worn on the left ring finger, until the wedding day. Some men wear engagement rings even after marriage.
Men's engagement rings chosen must match the taste and style of the person wearing them. They need to be more durable, light, and sturdy than women's engagement rings. Men's engagement rings are available in white or yellow gold, silver, platinum, or titanium. Platinum and titanium are commonly used, as these metals are highly durable and scratch free. The main disadvantage of silver men's engagement rings is that they tarnish easily.
A combination of metals can also be used in men's engagement rings. A two-tone men's engagement ring is the one that combines two types of gold (mostly, yellow and white gold) whereas a three-tone men's engagement ring has a fabulous blend of three gold types (yellow, white and rose gold). Different metal alloys can also be used to make intricate patterns on men's engagement rings. Plain solid bands, milgrain, hammered, and hand-braided styles are commonly used in men's engagement rings.
Even though simple and plain engagement rings look more masculine, some men's engagement rings feature colored gemstones and diamonds. Textured rings are also of great demand. Men's wedding sets come with stunning men's engagement rings and wedding rings. These rings are single metal bands, which can be soldered and worn together after marriage. Moreover, a pair of matching men's and women's engagement rings is a perfect choice.
