For couples who want a physical symbol of their commitment, engagement rings are a great choice for both partners.
Male celebrities have been spotted wearing engagement rings in the past few years, which may be contributing to the trend’s rise in popularity. As an example Ed Sheeran wore an engagement ring made for him by his now wife, Cherry Seaborn. Michael Bublé wore a plain band as an engagement band to honor his wife's Argentinian heritage, where it’s common for both men and women to wear an engagement ring. Men in Latin American countries will often wear an engagement ring on their left hand that they’ll move to their right hand after the wedding. Neil Patrick Harris and his husband David Burtka both wore engagement rings for years until their wedding. Even on Netflix's hit show "Bling Empire" which will come out in a few weeks Cherie Chan, who has been dating Jessey Lee (heir to the furniture empire), decided to ask her boy friend for his hand in marriage as he seemed to be delaying a bit longer than she would have liked (five years). So this trend is not just for same sex couples many times is shows the power of woman!
Today Millennial and Gen Z couples in particular seem to gravitate toward the male engagement ring tradition, since it shows an equally visible commitment from both partners. As traditional gender roles change, it’s becoming more common for women to propose to their male partners as well! For same-sex couples, there aren’t strict rules or traditions around buying each other engagement rings, but fiancés often like to show the world through engagement rings that both partners are taken.
A male engagement ring can be a way to show off your commitment to your partner. Many times these are referred to as "management" rings. Whether you choose to go with a simple band, a bold colored stone, or intricate diamond ring there is no real wrong answer.
