A betrothed man wearing an engagement ring is more common in other countries than in the United States and Canada, but the tradition is becoming more popular in North America. More couples want the man, as well as woman, to wear evidence of their engaged status. Some choose to buy a traditional wedding band to double as an engagement ring. Others prefer a more interesting ring, so choose a man’s diamond solitaire or other unique design such as the Men’s Octogan ring at top left. [From Gemvara: Available in nine metal combinations; plus, choice of 19 gemstones for the center stone, and each of two accent stones. Price ranges from around $350 (left middle) to $4,700 (left bottom), depending on customized options].
After the wedding ceremony the engagement ring either:
(1) becomes a right hand ring,
(2) is joined by a wedding ring (in the case of a narrow band), or
(3) becomes the wedding band itself.
