What was the average engagement ring and wedding band cost two years ago? $5,200 for an engagement ring and $1,126 for wedding bands for brides – a wedding ring for the groom had an average price tag of just $491. The most popular forms of engagement rings were round (53 percent), princess (30 percent) and made of white gold (73 percent). Of course, it doesn’t take the average groom a couple of hours to find the perfect ring. Instead, it took roughly three months for the man to locate a ring that was just perfect for his bride-to-be.
Men who favor the contemporary look may prefer the tinted titaniums which are available in blacks, grays, and a variety of other eye catching colors. Incorporating more than one colored metal into a ring is also extremely popular, and not only adds visual appeal, but can solve problems of matching watches, other jewelry and of course the bride’s wedding ring.
It is interesting to note that in the long history of the wedding ring that it is only in the last century that men have begun to wear them. However, now both men and women show their love and commitment by exchanging rings on their wedding day. Once you begin shopping for rings you may be amazed by the choices that await you. There are several different types of metals: traditional gold, white gold, platinum, and titanium. You can have an inscription put on the inside of the band if you like. Some people are even choosing a tattoo band. The styles vary from a simple, yet elegant band to an elaborate ring covered with jewels. If you do not buy the wedding and engagement rings as a set you will want to be sure the styles are compatible. Choose carefully because this choice will need to stand the test of eternity.
You will be amazed to know that he is not the only male royal without a wedding band. Other than him, his grandfather, Prince Philip who has been married to the queen for 69 years, also doesn’t wear a ring and if you see photo timeline of their marriage, you will notice that he hasn’t for many years. Surprised? Well, don’t be, because men did not wear rings earlier, it was only during World War II that they started wearing rings as a reminder of their family back at home, while they were away fighting for their respective countries. It’s the women who have been wearing rings since the Egyptian times.
So, next time, don’t judge the marital status of a male by the absence of ring on his finger and always remember that wearing one or not wearing one can be a personal choice unaffected by the societal norms. By now, you know who in the royal family wears a ring and who doesn’t but do you also know about the fact that there’s a tradition according to which the young boys belonging to the upper class, aristocracy and royals are supposed to wear shorts and not doing so is considered ”suburban”. And if you have guessed that this is why Prince George is always seen in shorts, give yourself a pat on the back because you are absolutely right. So, in this case, it is not his choice but the tradition.
