5 types of engagement rings for him

Engagement rings for men

Have you ever heard of the term “mangagement ring”? Even if you haven’t, you might be able to give it a good guess. The term, of course, refers to engagement rings for him. In recent years, it has become increasingly popular because after all anyone can propose to anyone, and that is something to embrace and celebrate. So, if we want to celebrate equality, then we also need to celebrate engagement rings for everyone!

It might seem a bit of a task to find the perfect mangagement ring, primarily because the market for engagement rings for women is overwhelming, and the engagement-ring-for-men market is smaller in comparison. However, I am here to tell you that actually there are many options for you to choose from. Let’s explore the different types of engagement rings for your special someone.


A “traditional” engagement ring features a diamond. The diamond ring could be a diamond solitaire, a five stone, a three-stone, or a twist. So by the same token, how about going for a traditional diamond ring for him?

Have you heard of the phrase diamonds are a girl’s best friend? Well, the same can apply to him too. Not only is a diamond ring elegant and timeless, but it is also an incredibly durable piece of jewellery that is made to last, even when worn by those who typically avoid wearing them because they are clumsy or rough on things.

Statement engagement rings for him

Now, you know about the traditional diamond ring, it’s time to talk about a more unique statement ring. That could be a vintage piece, a bold chunky ring, or even an antique engagement ring. All three of these styles make a statement.

For example, a Victorian engagement ring can speak to the person’s interest in history, or in the themes that are present in the Victorian era. A lot of people are choosing statement engagement rings for him as they create a distinct look and can help express a bubbly personality.


I personally love a gemstone ring, whether it is for an engagement or not, so I’ll admit straight away that I’m a *little* biased. However, I am in good company, after all quite a lot of royalty have chosen gemstone engagement rings.

He might have a favourite colour, or maybe he even has a favourite gemstone. If so, then he has made it easy for you to choose! A gemstone engagement ring gives a splash of colour, style and individuality, without pushing the person out of their comfort zone.


We’ve explored some bolder pieces, but how about looking at a bit more of a simple, and yet stunning option to celebrate your engagement – the simple band. How about opting for a simple silver, gold, or platinum band?

Historically speaking, engagement rings for him were in fact just wedding rings that were rebranded for a man’s engagement ring. This is a perfect option if he has an understated, classic, and simple style; the band will fit in seamlessly.

Outside of the box

In contrast to the previous option, how about thinking a bit out of the box? Maybe your fiancée-to-be doesn’t like wearing rings, and would prefer a different item of jewellery instead.

If so, you can easily pick a piece of jewellery that he will love that signifies your commitment to one another – you don’t have to confine your search to a ring. You could choose a watch perhaps with an inscription on it, or a pair of cufflinks. Maybe you even decide to give him a chain bracelet or a pocket watch. Really, you can think outside of the box with this!

Engagement rings for him: Ask what he prefers

There are many options to consider when choosing an engagement ring for him. I suggest asking him if he has a favourite type and shopping for styles with him. That way you both know that he will love it. After all, you’d want him to take that thoughtful approach with you.

What do you think, do you have a favourite option? Or, perhaps you’ve already bought an engagement ring for your special someone, and you have a great idea to share – do let us know!

  1. Here in Brazil, traditionally, both people wear simple bands, and, when they get married, they get the wedding date and/or their names engraved inside. I feel it’s a nice and simple touch!

  2. I’ve never heard of this! I’ve always thought it a bit archaic (and I’m actually pretty old fashioned) for a woman to walk around with a ‘tag’ saying she’s taken, and a man no indication of such. Maybe a silicone ring like Enso? I think that’s the brand I’ve seen most frequently.

    1. Ohhh there are lots of choices now and I always think it’s awesome when women propose ~ Some traditions benefit from a modern touch!
