The Rise of the Mangagement Ring

I never really understood why men never wore an engagement ring before now, the trend was sparked in the late 1920’s by jewelers around the United states. With countless efforts made by major companies such as Macy’s, who tried to promote diamond rings for men but were unsuccessful due to the wide spread assumption of femininity that came along with diamond rings.  According to Urban Dictionary a Mangagemet ring is “an  engagement ring  worn by a man. Often worn by men in a relationship with a more progressive partner. Usually applies to heterosexual couples. Man + Engagement Ring= Mangagement ring” It has been found in our research of the mangagement ring that only 5% of men wear one today. However we are predicting that with this new age generation, the mangagement ring will be the new frontier in the engagement ring industry.

Women wear them to ward off any prospective men looking for a lady, as well as to show the world that she is taken. So we thought it’s high time the lady-only engagement ring makes way for the mangagement ring, so that a male status of engagement is visible for all to see immediately upon engagement. Although the mangagement ring hasn’t blasted off in today’s market quite as fast as we had hoped for, we have found that many are just sparkling up their wedding bands with diamond accents instead.
