Reading this thread just totally inspired me. I want my guy to wear *some* sort of engagement jewelry, but I'd rather save the ring for once we're married. I had been thinking about getting him a nice watch, but that wouldn't say "TAKEN" the way I want it to... so then I realized that I needed something that *literally* said TAKEN on it.

And I found this: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000PHORF2

I ordered it and can't wait to give it to him. I know he will love it, and will love wearing it!

Ohmygodohmygodohmygodohmygod I love that buckle! We already got married, so he's got his wedding band already but I think I just may buy that for myself hah Smiley

well, i didn't get my fiancee a ring after getting engaged, but a few weeks after we started dating, he gave me his high school class ring (he was a senior when we first started dating), and so i gave him a hand-made sivler ring with a blue opal stone in it that i had worn everyday since i was like..14 maybe. we both put each others rings on a chain and wore them around our necks 24/7 since then so i always thought that served as a pretty good sign that he was taken  Grin. But, i'm pretty sure that if i got him his own engagement ring he'd be happy to wear it.

My man and I just got engaged on July 2nd. My ring is from etsy and it's silver stamped with "wyjoziesz za mnie"(Polish for "will you marry me"), so his mangagement ring will say "OK!" on his. Now we just have to figure out his ring size...

My hubby-to-be was actually kind of pissed when he learned that guys don't normally get engagement rings of their own, haha! But at the same time, he rarely wears jewelry, and didn't actually want a ring. (He's afraid he would lose it.)

I proposed to him with a piece of his favorite pizza. XD

Just got married a few weeks back. My husband is Swedish and some people here do what we did, which is that the guy wears his wedding ring on the ring finger of the right hand until the wedding day as a sign of engagement. He was more than happy to wear the ring after I suggested it (I read about it somewhere - a magazine, I think) but we weren't too organised with the whole ring thing, so I got my engagement ring months after he proposed (mainly as we had so many problems deciding!) and his wedding/man-gagement ring (love that name for it Grin) was not ready until a couple of months before the wedding - actually just in time for his stag night!

I'm Swedish and here the traditional way is that when getting engaged both the guy and the girl get a ring, and then on the wedding day only the girl gets a ring. Ofcourse the downside to this is that normally the whole proposing thing ends up being a joint descision on getting a pair of rings. My parents got engaged after walking by the window of a jewlry store and my dad saying "should we get a pair of those?"... not terribly romantic. Ofcourse the tradition makes it easier to do as I've planned and propose to my man instead of the other way around  Wink

ETA: The mans engagement ring turns in to a wedding ring once he's married.

My fiance and I have had a very unusual engagement so far. We started out with a very simple CZ ring from claires, and when that broke, we got another CZ ring from amazon, and when that broke Tongue (apparently I'm rough on rings) we decided to wait until we had the funds for something more durable. I really had my heart set on a channel set diamond ring, but after looking around a bit more I fell in LOVE with sapphires. My ring is small, it's sapphire, and it has two barely-there diamonds beside it and I couldn't possibly love it more. I feel like it means more because it's not a giant rock, it's more personal and unique. Sapphire is not only his birthstone, but it's also the stone of fidelity, which I think makes it a perfect stone for an engagement ring. Also, since our engagement was less of a surprise and more of a mutual agreement, I got him a ring too. Which he proudly wears everyday. Cheesy

i have known my boyfriend for 7 or 8 years now, he worked with my dad when i was 14 and he was 21. we've only been dating for 4 months, but we are going to get married. and instead of a ring, i gave him a key. i bought a necklace shaped like a heart with part missing and the key fits it perfectly. until i get a necklace for his, he carries it around happily in his wallet. which is fine by me =) and as corny as it sounds it fits us perfectly.

i think any man willing to carry around or wear a token of love from the girl he is with is a man worth marrying. and i would be offended if he refused to wear it or if it just ended up tossed somewhere in his room like everything else in the world, maybe even the titanic is in that room!

it's good to know i'm not the only crazy one though =)

My hubby and I wear matching Claddagh bands (traditional Irish wedding ring) that we started each wearing at engagement as you can wear the ring in different positions to show if you are single, dating, engaged or married.  It was very important to me that he should wear an 'engagement ring" as well because I do believe both sides should declare their commitment equally.  I had a different Claddagh ring that I wore before we were engaged which he got engraved with the Gaelic word for beloved on the inside and he now keeps that old ring on his key chain.
