16 Perfect Man-Gagement Rings We Love

Sasha Lannier

It’s nearly 2018 and yet somehow engagement rings are still mostly targeted towards women. The guys deserve to get in on the action, too! While some men might not interested in a big ole’ rock, there are certainly those who want in on the symbolic practice of giving or receiving a beautiful engagement ring. There are also those who want a little (or a lot) of sparkle. (We are totally here for it!)

There are plenty of men’s bands on the market that can serve as an engagement ring from brands synonymous with marriage—think Cartier, Tiffany & Co. and De Beers. Additionally, many lesser-known jewelry designers have handsome creations befitting a man-gagement (we may or may not have made up this term) ring.

Since there are a lot more options out there than you’d expect, the first step is figuring out what type of ring suits you or your partner.

Something simple and sleek? Bario Neal’s brushed two-tone square band or Porter Gulch’s distressed gold band with a narrow design could be ideal. Sustainable fine jewelry brand OTEM launched men’s rings with minimal, affordable designs starting at $120. Perfect for those who are price conscious and prefer a minimal aesthetic.

Into a blingier look? Why not stand out with Rahaminov Diamonds emerald cut diamond or Cartier’s white gold, black ceramic and diamond Trinity de Cartier ring? Handsome sparkle is a thing.

More for modern design with a subtle bit of shine? Consider Todd Reed’s raw diamond band with a zig-zag design and raw diamond cube, Anna Sheffield’s rose gold Virtue Band with black diamonds, or Brilliant Earth's modern band with a thin vertical row of blue sapphires set against a matte brushed white gold band.

Whenever you fall on the man-gagement spectrum, we’ve rounded up 16 options to inspire you. Click through our edit ahead.
