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?”
