25 Unique Mens Engagement Rings - Will You Propose?

10K Gold & Diamond Men's Claddagh RingWould you propose to your beau?  I was doing research today and was surprised to find that there are so many people searching for mens engagement rings - who knew it was becoming popular to buy an engagement ring for your man?  There was even a term for it: a Mengagement ring! When I shared what I discovered today with my beau he looked at me across the dinner table, “I do not want an engagement ring.  Do not get any ideas.”  If I could insert a laugh into this post I would, because he knows me so well.  I probably would buy him one! (but only if he proposed first)

But is it fair that women get the only pre-wedding bling? I mean why do we get “marked” as off limits while our men get to still (innocently) flirt? And besides, it isn’t emasculating to wear a men’s engagement ring - the Irish have done it for centuries with the Claddah ring a ring which is traditionally worn by men on their left hand with the heart pointing up to signify their engaged status (and subsequently the heart points down upon marriage).  Even in Finland, it is popular for the couple to purchase two bands upon their engagement (which they both wear) - and only the bride gets a second ring upon the actual wedding.

So whether you’ve been patiently waiting for him to propose, or if he’s proposed and you want to get him something in return - or perhaps your a gay or alternative lifestyle couple and would like to propose - there are plenty of options out there for you!  Here are some of the more classic and unique options I’ve found:
