Written by    Last updated: December 2, 2016

You could be wearing these treasures for the rest of your lives, so it makes sense to put some real thought into the rings you choose to exchange. Here’s our round up of some of the very latest wedding and engagement rings for men and women, including ‘mengagement’ rings, and gorgeous keepsake ring boxes to keep them safe.

Wedding and Engagement Ring Sets

A wedding and engagement ring set comprises two rings that are made to fit together perfectly, so with a little forward-planning at the time of your engagement, you could find the perfect match. Even if you didn’t plan ahead, a close enough match can often be found with the right jeweller.

Engagement Rings for Women

Whether you choose your rings together or it’s a complete surprise, the engagement ring is likely to be the most romantic gift you will ever give or receive. Etiquette used to dictate that a man should spend at least a month’s salary on the engagement ring, but really the price is unimportant compared to the symbolic gesture itself.

Wedding Rings for Women

The wedding ring usually replaces the position of the engagement ring once you are married, as the wedding band is said to be worn ‘closest to the heart’. In future years, an eternity ring may be given to mark a special occasion in the couple’s relationship, such as the birth of their first child or the renewal of their vows.

 

Wedding Rings for Men

More men choose to wear  a wedding band these days, and many couples exchange wedding rings that are matching in some way in colour or style.

Engagement Rings for Men

I’m all for equality so I like the ‘mengagement’ ring. It’s a very modern idea, and a lovely excuse for men to show they are engaged and wear their own sparkler if they so wish!
