New trend: Man-gagement rings

ASHEVILLE, N.C. (WLOS) -- A growing number of women are "putting a ring on it." A survey from XO Group Inc., which own the wedding website "The Knot," found that five percent of engaged men are wearing "man-gagement rings."

According to The Atlantic, man-gagement rings actually are not new. Back in the 1920's jewelry companies tried to increase their business by getting men to wear engagement rings, too. The rings even had macho names like "the Master," "the Stag," and "the Pilot." But the rings never took off.

But now, things are changing. Experts say same-sex marriage is one of the reasons why you may start seeing more man-gagement rings. They also cite a stronger push for gender equality - if women wear a ring, why shouldn't the man wear one too?

However, don't expect to shell out as much money for the man-gagement ring. They are usually made of silver or titanium instead of gold, and even a higher-end only costs around $200.
