Men’s Fashion Advice – Man-gagement Rings: I Do or I Don’t?

Man-gagement Rings: I Do or I Don’t?

The idea of a man wearing an engagement ring to express his commitment to his fiancé is not a new one, but over the years it has not been a very popular trend. However, this year, some celebrities have brought it back in a big way.

One trend-setting guy who was spotted with a “man-gagement” ring recently on his left ring finger is Johnny Depp. His rather substantially large round diamond solitaire is flanked by graduating diamonds down the shank of the ring and is a nice compliment to Johnny’s fiancé Amber Heard’s sparkling solitaire that is in a slightly more feminine setting.

Another couple who has jumped on board with the “man-gagament” ring trend is Singer Jennifer Hudson and her Wrestler fiancé David Otunga. His commitment ring is a band style ring with raised geometric squares and inset diamonds in between each square and along the profile. It is a modern design by one of the top ring designers, Neil Lane. It has both sparkle and unique interest all in one package.

Considering that engagements can be quite lengthy sometimes and both parties may enjoy professing their love and commitment for each other, the idea of a “man-gagement” ring seems like less of an oddity. Also, in breaking with tradition, the usual engagement ring recipient may really enjoy being able to show their love for their “spouse-to-be” with the gift of a ring in return. Most people may not have the finances to buy a 5 carat diamond set in Platinum that celebrities like Johnny Depp and David Otunga may be wearing, but there are simpler band styles made out of white gold, sterling silver, and stainless steel that may fit the bill.
