10 Reasons We Hope Johnny Depp’s Man-gagement Ring Becomes A Trend

Johnny Depp recently made an appearance wearing — GASP — a woman’s engagement ring on his left finger. Many assumed that this was some kind of hint about his hush, hush engagement to Amber Heard. In response to questions about the bling on his finger, Depp replied, “The fact that I’m wearing a chick’s ring on my finger is probably a dead giveaway. Not very subtle.”

Great. They’re engaged. Mazel tov!

But what really interests us is whether or not he plans to permanently rock this new rock, and how many other guys will follow suit. We’re really hoping that it’s not a stunt, that it’s an earnest attempt to imbue the engagement process with the gender equality it deserves. Best case scenario: Johnny will make the man-gagement ring a trend. Below, some reasons why we’re fervently pro guys wearing “chick” engagement rings. Keep reading »

Girl Talk: An Engagement Ring? No, Thanks!

Girl Talk: An Engagement Ring? No, Thanks!

I am a woman who is engaged to be married. But unlike lots of your friends who are busy posting photographs of their diamond engagement rings on Facebook, you wouldn’t be able to tell by looking at my left hand.

This is because I told my fiancée many times before we got engaged that I wasn’t interested in getting an engagement ring at all, diamonds or no. There are a lot of reasons I feel this way, including my particular indifference to jewelry. “Honestly, I’d rather have an iPad,” I told him.

Diamond engagement rings are a translation of a much older sexist tradition of putting a down payment on one’s bride. This is, incidentally, still legally the case. In many states a bride-to-be can still sue her fiancée for breach of contract if he breaks off the engagement, as a Georgia woman did last year. After all, it is only women who are marked with an engagement ring as taken, suggesting that the balance of power doesn’t lie with the one who wears it. Keep reading »

Poll: Would You Help Pay For Your Own Engagement Ring?

Would you ever help your significant other pay for your engagement ring? Apparently it’s happening more than we know.

Last week, while falling asleep to the evening news, I overheard a report that had me bolt up from my semi-coma and stare at my TV screen in confusion. The newscasters were discussing the increasing frequency of women helping their boyfriend’s purchase engagement rings— by chipping in. Keep reading »

True love is getting the person you’re with the absolute perfect gift — even if it may not make sense to anyone but you two. Take the lucky lass that received this amazing 20-sided die engagement ring. A poster on Off Beat Bride explained that she made the ring after finding a mini metal polyhedral (that’s 20-sided) dice set. She and her girlfriend both love “Dungeons and Dragons.” “With advice from a friend in jewelry design school, I researched ring settings and doodled designs. I initially wanted to make the ring myself by buying a setting and putting the die in it. This was slightly insane. I quickly realized that if I wanted this done right, I’d need to take it to a professional.”

So she did. And after three months she presented the ring to her girlfriend, who of course said yes. You don’t turn down a 20-sided die ring. [Off Beat Bride]

You Maybe Need These “Star Wars” Engagement Rings

I have to confess, I’m not a huge “Star Wars” fan. In fact the last time I watched a “Star Wars” movie was when I was 16 and hanging out with a skater dude named Janic. Basically, I watched the movie just so we could make out (this is a recurring theme in my life). What? He was cute and French Canadian!

Anyway, not a “Star Wars” fan, but I do love these “Star Wars” engagement rings, mostly because I love the total bitchiness of responding to someone’s “I love you” with a snarky “I know.” Thank God for Harrison Ford’s Han Solo’s bitchy response to Princess Leia’s declaration of love, right?

I lost my engagement ring. I mean, really lost it. I haven’t seen it in a month, maybe more. I wish I was a robot and I could check my memory chip and replay all of my thoughts and actions, because then I would know exactly what happened, and I would also experience those amazing tortillas we got all over again. But maybe robots don’t like melted cheese as much as I do?

Focus.

I looked under everything with a flashlight. My dad blamed the cat, but she maintains her innocence. I looked under everything again, with a different flashlight that seemed a little brighter. It was gross under everything and I didn’t want to reach in there, but I’m pretty sure there was no ring.

And I’m probably not supposed to say this, but I don’t miss it. Keep reading »

You know how when Prince William and Kate got engaged, there were all these jerks hawking replicas of her ring everywhere? Well Nick Gordon, the “adopted brother”/boyfriend of Whitney Houston’s daughter Bobbi Kristina just proposed to her with one of those things. You can buy the damn ring on Overstock.com for $69.99. Now, it’s not that I think it’s shitty that he got her a cheap ass ring — it’s just that getting a Kate Middleton replica ring is totally … lame.
