Mangagement Rings, Men Your Time Has Come to Look Engaged

Mangagement Ring Proposal

I’ve made a number of Mangagement rings. Check out the cutting edge Mangagement rings news, through the eyes of Alan and Maura.

Alan turned to me and said, “You know…I feel a little discriminated against. Here we are designing my fianceé, Maura’s engagement ring, which she’ll get to wear for ten months before our wedding, while my poor finger goes bare the whole time. What’s with that?” Alan had a dry, deadpan sense of humor and I wasn’t sure if he was serious or not. I glanced at Maura.

“Honey,” she said gently, “if you want a ring, we can make you one, too. Right, Calla?”

“Of course,” I said cheerfully. “There’s actually a name for these kinds of rings.”

“There is?” Alan asked, a bit surprised.

“Yes. They’re called “mangagement rings.”(See the Huffington Post article.)

“Seriously? A combination of the words, ‘man’ and ‘engagement’?”

“That’s right,” I answered. Then in a conspiratorial voice added, “It’s a cutting edge concept. You’d be one of the first.”

“Go for it, Honey!” Maura exclaimed.

“You know…I think I will.”

What Exactly Are Mangagement Rings?

A mangagement ring is an engagement/wedding band worn during the period of engagement.

The ring can be worn in concert with a matching wedding ring once you get married or it can simply be polished up prior to the wedding ceremony.

Many women today opt for single wedding rings instead of going with an engagement ring/wedding ring set. Basically, guys do the same thing with the mangagement ring.

“So I don’t have to get another ring? This ‘mangagement’ ring will be my wedding ring, too? And you’ll polish it up before the ceremony?” Alan asked.

“It’ll look shiny and brand new when I get done with it,” I said brightly.

“And you’ll polish my engagement ring at the same time?” Maura inquired.

“Absolutely,” I said.

Turning to her fiancé, Maura asked, “Are you feeling a little less discriminated against, Honey?”

“Well…can I have a diamond in my ring?”

I’ll leave you with that!

Calla, this is GREAT! I had not heard of this fabulous concept before, but it definitely makes sense. Mangagement Rings will be all the rage in our iconic wedding city of Santa Barbara soon thanks to you! Way to stay ahead of the curve! What’s next, Groom Showers? I bet I know a few grooms that would want to be showered on with love and gifts with a special party just for them before the wedding!

This mangagement ring idea is so messed up. What kind of “man” would voluntarily be emasculated like this? NO thanks!

Calla, I love it! my fiance insists on getting one and we didn’t even know what they were called. But he says he wants something on his finger just as I. When i heard there were Man-gagement rings, I was soooo relieved. It’s sad to see the majority of men who think negatively about it. Since we will be joined together I feel we should be equal and I love the concept of women proposing to men.

My husband and I opted for engagement rings, which I proudly wore prior to our wedding. After all, we’re creating new traditions being two men, right We chose silver bands in that case, with platinum bands for our wedding. I still wear my “mangagement” ring on my right hand front time to time, along with the wedding band on my left.
