Men's Engagement Rings: Where and What to Buy

Q Report Team
Updated on November 11, 2022
2 min read

Gone are the days where a stunning diamond ring was only for brides-to-be. Men’s engagement rings are becoming increasingly popular, with sleek and stylish designs giving guys the chance to show off their own special stones.


In this post, we look at some popular men’s engagement rings styles, outline what you should look for in your ring, and provide a few places to start your shopping.


Popular Men’s Engagement Ring Styles


Men’s engagement rings are typically sleek, stylish and understated compared to their female counterparts. Whereas female engagement rings usually have a prominent large feature stone, men’s rings typically boast smaller diamonds, often set into the ring in a channel, tension or flush setting.

What to Look for in a Men’s Engagement Ring


For many men, practicality and durability are as important as a great look. Channel settings like we see above provide great protection for the diamonds and reduce the chance of the ring getting in the way with daily wear.

Platinum ring metal provides a masculine and stylish appearance, which is why it’s the most popular choice for men. For a more traditional look, try a yellow gold ring band.


Another thing to consider is how your ring and hers gel together. Whether it’s using a similar ring metal, stone grade or general style, it can be a meaningful gesture to give them some matching elements.


Where to Buy Men’s Engagement Rings


Whether it’s buying for her or for him, engagement ring shopping is a highly personal experience. Finding a trusted local jeweller in your area will ensure you get the best advice for your style and budget.

What Should You Pay?


There’s no right or wrong answer when it comes to choosing your engagement ring budget. Men’s engagement rings are typically less expensive than female rings, due to the fact they usually boast far smaller diamonds and less intricate settings.


$5,000 will get you a high-quality piece, but you can still find rings for as low as $500. All engagement rings are priceless in sentimental value, after all.



Protecting Your Ring and Hers


A lot of research goes into engagement ring shopping, and it’s truly a special moment when you find that perfect ring you’ll treasure forever. Whether it’s your sleek channel set piece or her flashy 2ct round brilliant engagement ring, it’s essential that you give these treasures the protection they deserve.
