It may not be a leap year, but women are becoming just as likely to propose marriage as men – and just as likely to buy their man an engagement ring to propose with.
That’s according to leading jeweller Titanium Rings Studio, who claim that men aren't the only customer's coming to them for engagement rings.
"While there's still a tendency for men to be the ones who do the proposing, the number of women who decide to pop the question seems to be on the rise," commented a spokesman for the firm. "We've seen a corresponding rise in the purchases of "male" engagement rings as a consequence of that."
Even when men choose to propose themselves, the bride-to-be isn't always the only one to get a ring, claim the firm. "Some men like to show their commitment to their new fiancé by wearing the male equivalent to an engagement ring," added the spokesman. "It's a symbol that the man is "spoken" for, and it's also just a nice thing to have. It adds to the excitement of an engagement, and we're predicting a rise in the trend over the next few years."
But just what is a male engagement ring? Well, it doesn't have to be diamond and it doesn’t have to be gold – the traditional components of the female engagement. In fact, a male engagement ring can be anything the man wants it to be – just so long as it's worn on the third finger of the left hand.
"A lot of our male customers will use their engagement as an excuse to purchase a funky piece of jewellery for themselves," laughed Titanium Rings Studio's spokesman. "Our titanium rings are ideal for this purpose because they've very contemporary and cool. The rings can be customised in just about any way the customer likes, so they can become a real expression of the person's personality."
Titanium rings are also very durable – making them the ideal choice for an engagement ring that will be worn for the rest of the man's life! View the range of rings on offer at http://www.tirings.com.
