For Him: Men’s Engagement Rings and Gifts

Should men wear engagement rings? With celebrities including Ed Sheeran and Michael Bublé proudly wearing rings to show they’re engaged, the question is starting to pop up; and the answer is - if he would like to, then absolutely!

While engagement rings are traditionally viewed as an accessory for women, it’s become quite common for men to be given an engagement gift in return. Considering this, along with more and more women choosing to pop the question themselves, and marriage equality for all couples, there’s no reason that both partners shouldn’t wear engagement rings if they choose to – after all, both are making the same commitment! 

If you are searching for the perfect engagement ring or gift for your partner, discover our top ideas for him. 

Men's engagement rings

If you’d like to propose to him, or each wear symbols of your love and commitment, discover our styles that are perfect as men’s engagement rings.  

While styles designed for women will typically showcase a centre diamond or gemstone, or a centre arrangement of stones, rings for men tend to be simpler band styles. However, there are still many options available to find the perfect men’s engagement ring.  

You can opt for a touch of tradition with a ring adorned with diamonds. At Michael Hill, our range includes gold or titanium rings set with diamonds, from a subtle row of small stones to eye-catching multi-row and pavé designs.  

A diamond-set men’s engagement ring is also a great idea if he would like to wear an additional wedding band when you get married, as it can be stacked with a simple band.  

If his style is a little more understated, consider a ring in gold, tungsten, or titanium; with a timeless polished finished, or patterned or brushed metal for a touch of difference.  

For a classic ring with an extra meaningful touch, you could also give him a signet ring that can be engraved with your initials.

Men's engagement gifts

Perhaps an engagement ring isn’t his style, but you might still like to make a gesture after becoming engaged – after all, this is an incredible moment in your lives and one that deserves a memento to mark it! 

So, what should you buy him as an engagement gift? Watches are a popular engagement gift for men. A timepiece that suits his personal style, from a simple wristwatch in stainless steel or leather to a detailed chronograph or skeleton design, is something he can wear every day and treasure for many years to come. Discover our range of Michael Hill watches, as well as Seiko timepieces, to find the perfect one for him.  

If you love sentimental jewellery, a watch is also a beautiful symbol of all the time ahead and everything that’s to come in your new lives together.  

Men's wedding bands

When the day comes to exchange your vows, his wedding band acts as a symbol of your love and commitment to each other. 

The most popular wedding ring styles for men are generally simple bands, but you can find the perfect design for him to treasure for life, whether that’s a minimalistic style or one that’s more detailed. 

With our wide range of men’s wedding rings at Michael Hill, discover simple polished styles in precious gold; finer bands or wider, statement designs; two-toned metal rings; and rings with a patterned or brushed metal design feature.  

Gold wedding bands, whether in yellow, white, or rose gold, are classic and durable styles with lasting shine, and gold is typically the most-loved metal for wedding bands. However, for a modern style statement he might prefer a titanium ring, or a wedding ring that combines both titanium and gold in the design. Tungsten is also a popular choice for men’s wedding rings, as it’s an extremely hard and largely scratch-resistant metal - perfect for anyone who works with their hands.  

Consider his personal style and his lifestyle, to help you choose the perfect ring for him.
