It has been a tradition for years that the man asks his beloved to marry him, with the associated whopper of a diamond engagement ring. She (hopefully) says 'yes', he puts the ring on her finger, and the planning begins. But times change. Many men do not think this is entirely fair. And they are right! Because why should there only be an engagement ring for the bride? More and more men want to prove their commitment to a woman with a ring before marriage. And the increasing number of gay marriages also creates a new trend: the (m)engagement ring, an engagement ring for men!
Why should I buy an engagement ring for my man?
It used to be customary that both women and men wore an engagement ring in the months before their wedding. The idea behind the current (m)engagement ring - in times of equality between men and women - is that many women want to do something in return. He has gone down on one knee, might have made it a very special time and has bought a beautiful diamond engagement ring. It makes sense that you want to give something in return to thank or surprise him.

Men do not have to worry, however, that they will have to walk down the street wearing a solitaire engagement ring with a diamond. The (m)engagement ring looks cool, with or without diamond(s).
