An engagement ring is a ring that a man gives to a woman when he proposes to her. After she’s married, it will be worn together with her wedding band.
Engagement Rings and Wedding Rings
Often engagement and wedding rings are designed together and come in sets that are made to fit snuggly into each other. The engagement ring is usually the fancier and more elaborate of the two. It is characteristically set with a larger diamond in the center as the focal point.
Oftentimes, this diamond is surrounded by smaller diamonds. Designs range from simple, single stone settings to complex and wildly imaginative creations.
