Engagement Rings are Not Just For Women Anymore

It has not always been common for men to wear engagement rings, at least in our culture. Traditionally, men bought women engagement rings when they propose. But times are changing, and it is becoming more and more common for women to buy mens engagement rings. You know the trend is going to explode when celebrities start doing it, and that seems to be happening.

Just because women are buying mens engagement rings does not mean that they are the ones doing all the proposing. In many cultures, it is traditional for men and women both to wear engagement rings. Sometimes mens engagement rings are worn on one hand and the same ring is switched to the other hand after the wedding. Sometimes men and women both have an engagement ring, but it is much simpler than the elaborate engagement rings that are becoming so common today.

Canadian Singer and songwriter Michael Buble is one celebrity who wears mens engagement rings. He has been engaged to his actress girlfriend Luisana Loreley Lopilato de la Torre since November of 2009, and he has been seen showing off his engagement ring. Luisana Lopilato is from Argentina, and in her culture it is the normal thing for women to buy mens engagement rings, so that both the men and the women wear them. It looks to be a warm yellow gold band, worn on his left hand. It is not just mens engagement rings that are getting attention in their relationship. Luisana received a beautiful diamond engagement ring designed by a jeweller from Vancouver, Minichiello.

Part of being a celebrity, apparently, is starting new trends and changing what is popular. While mens engagement rings are not a common thing right now, if celebrities have started wearing them, it will not be long until every newly engaged couple is pouring over not just an engagement ring for her, but an engagement ring for him as well. And why not? Isn’t it time that men get to share in the excitement of showing of their new ring and officially having a symbol of commitment as soon as he gets engaged, instead of waiting until he is married?
