Men’s engagement rings are growing in popularity, and quite rightly so. Partly due to what LGBTQ+ couples have always known, that love has never followed traditional gender rules. Online searches for male engagement rings in the last year have shown an increase in 60% on the previous year. Demand is increasing and the trend is continuing. And why should one partner miss out on the chance to proudly display their love and the commitment that they have both made?
Couples such as Tom Daley and Dustin Lance-Black have changed how many see male engagement rings and they have taken it as a chance to bring proposals into the 21st Century. And, it’s not just for LGBTQ+ couples; Ed Sheeran showed off his engagement ring last year at the Brit Awards, that his fiancé Cherry Seaborn specially made for him.
Presenting men’s engagement rings as part of a modern engagement celebration is growing in popularity. Having said that, most High Street jewellers still don’t offer many engagement rings for men. As usual, the mainstream community has been slow to offer all couples the ability to express their love, and therefore the choice of men’s engagement rings is often limited to ‘repurposing’ a plain wedding band. This is a missed opportunity to celebrate your proposal as a significant and unique occasion in its own right.
At Blair and Sheridan, we’re specialists in bespoke men’s engagement rings, creating unique designs and rings that are meaningful for both you and your partner.
Since buying mens engagement rings is a newer trend in the UK, USA and Europe, they are becoming more available to buy on the high street off the shelf. However, if you want to let your imagination and creativity loose, you can get bespoke mens engagement rings made. Civil partnership engagement rings are a fantastic opportunity to allow couples to express very personal ideas and styles while retaining the tradition of wearing a plain wedding band later. With male engagement rings, you can express more character than with traditional wedding bands alone and produce a bold statement of your love and fidelity that you can both wear forever – particularly with a unique deisgn.
We help couples design matching rings to emphasise their togetherness. You can also choose to create complementary pieces for each of you, which reflect the individual characteristics that you and your partner bring to your relationship. We’d be delighted to work with you both to create male engagement rings that match your exact specifications of design and at an agreed, affordable cost. Incredibly, it’s more affordable than you think to get a custom made ring, compared to mass-produced high street rings, as we have low overheads, and no large marketing spends. Plus we deal direct with diamond and precious metal dealers in Antwerp, cutting out middlemen.
Our full service, includes offering guidance and expert advice with a view to creating stunning finished rings in a process that is exciting, stress-free, enjoyable, and above all, celebratory.
