Dear Calla, Why Can’t I (a Man) Wear an Engagement Ring?

I’m a guy and I work in food services and I get hit on by the new hostess. I’ve told everyone that I’m engaged and she’s not getting it. Why can’t I just wear my wedding band while engaged and get this gal off my case?

My client Elyse recently proposed to her man and he’s happily wearing his mangagement ring.

Dear Stalked,

Well that is a new one. For the record you definitely may wear your ring while engaged. It’s called a mangagement ring and it is a thing.

The only thing is this hostess. I can’t guarantee that the wedding ring will put her off. Let’s hope. Years ago when my husband was a waiter there was a hostess who just went after the married fellas. This made me a bit uncomfortable, but then I trust him so it became a joke. “Oh, you came home!” “Yes I managed to resist her for another day!”

Then she moved on and we made up new jokes.

May you have a long and happy marriage.

Your Personal Jeweler,
