Many modern couples are ditching old-fashioned traditions in favour of new trends when it comes to their nuptials. From coloured dresses like the black frock worn by Sarah Jessica Parker and the scarlet gown donned by Jodie Marsh, to alternative venues like London Zoo, there are seemingly no traditions left to break. But one more custom that couples are turning their backs on is that of only the bride-to-be wearing an engagement ring. Now that celebrities like David Beckham have made it cool for guys to wearing diamond jewellery, men are opting for their own platinum engagement rings to show their commitment before walking down the aisle.
Platinum Engagement Rings – New Trend for Men
When he proposes to you, you would expect to be presented with a gorgeous diamond platinum engagement ring, or at least be whisked off to buy one very soon after the proposal. But what if, as many women are doing these days, you decide to pop the question to him? Should you give him a ring and each wear one, or stick to tradition? A platinum engagement ring is a symbol for eternal love that can apply to either sex. And with celebrity men setting the trend for wearing platinum engagement rings – such as Christina Aguilera’s husband Jordan Bratman - it’s become less unusual than it used to be.
