When thinking of engagement rings, images of sparkling bands with glistening center diamonds typically come to mind.

While this idea of an engagement ring still serves as a beautiful choice, there are no set in stone rules… especially when it comes to who is receiving the ring! Engagement rings for men have been increasingly sought after, and we are loving this trend.

Men’s rings offer great variety and distinction, and can be just unique as engagement rings for women!

How to Choose Men’s Engagement Rings

Decide on a Budget

While we believe an engagement ring’s worth comes from the meaning behind it, money does play a role in determining which ring to propose with. Setting a budget early can make your search for his engagement ring easier, and our team at Brilliant Earth is more than happy to assist you in selecting the best options within your set price range. You can also consider a variety of flexible payment options.

Choose a Style

Before purchasing a ring for the groom-to-be, consider things like his wardrobe, daily routine, and overall personal taste. A man’s engagement ring should reflect his personality while balancing his lifestyle. Make sure you know your partner’s ring size.
