Until recently engagement rings were seen as exclusively a female item of jewellery but the team at Ingle & Rhode believe the time has come for both sexes to enjoy a little engagement bling. They have already sold several of the rings to women who were planning to propose to their partners and are confident the trend will continue to gain pace. Ingle & Rhode's mens rings include items fashioned from gold and platinum with many featuring ethically sourced diamonds, sapphires, emeralds and other precious stones. There's something for most budgets with women able to choose from a modest ring for their man from as little as £495 or go for something more blingy up to £11,950.

Wearing your ring every day will take its toll - a build-up of things like oil, debris and cosmetic residue can create a thin layer on your ring making it look dull.
The good news is that there is no reason you can't keep your diamond as vibrant and twinkly as the day you received it- it just takes a little sprucing up every so often.

We posed Rachael Whitwam of O'Hares Jewellers in Chester the following question...
I want to give my husband-to-be a personalised and special gift that he can wear on the big day. What would you recommend?
Rachael says: Popular gift ideas for the groom are personalised cufflinks or signet rings. These can be made in a variety of metals to suite all budgets and tastes such as silver, 9ct or 18ct gold, or platinum. Usually, we grave the front with your husband-to-be's initials, but there are so many ways to personalise them as you wish. We can set a stone into the corner for example, some people like to get their husband's birthstone or one to represent the month of the wedding. You can also put a message or the date of the wedding on the reverse side.

Some jewellery, like rosary beads, are considered good luck, whereas wearing pearls on your wedding day suggests that you will have tears in your marriage.
