Hold on to your hats ladies and gents, mangagement rings are here AND....we think they might be here to stay!
For those that aren't in the know (which included us until very recently) mangagement rings are for the modern gal who wants to propose to her beau and sees no reason why she shouldn't take the lead. And, since a diamond engagement doesn't quite work with hairy knuckles, mangagement rings were born.
Some jewelers actually have a line of mangagement rings when in reality they are mostly wedding bands given at the engagement.
They're actually becoming quite popular.
Another reason for their popularity, is that some guys today, want to show that they're attached and like the idea of wearing a ring prior to the wedding. It adds to the excitement for them.
After all, why should the girl be the only one to get all the attention?

Not sure if we can call this etiquette or tradition yet but the procedure (for lack of a better term) is that it be offered as part of the proposal and worn on the ring finger of the left hand until the marriage.
It then gets transferred over to the ring finger of the right hand once the deed is done.
Turns out that in some cultures (like for the Lebanese) both the bride and groom receive engagement rings so this isn't new, just new for us.
So what do you think? Is the mangagement ring here to stay?
