Ed Sheeran’s engagement ring - starting a new trend for men?
Congratulations to Ed Sheeran and his fiance Cherry Seaborn on their engagement.
As we are always pretty excited about a) rings and b) weddings we were really interested to read that Ed is wearing an engagement ring. Engagement rings for men are not traditional in the UK but perhaps it’s time to consider it as in other countries the customs around weddings are different. In Sweden it is traditional for both men and women to wear plain bands as an engagement ring and then only the woman receives an additional ring on the wedding day. In Chile both men and women wear engagement rings on their right hand and they move these to their left hand when they’re married (facts thanks to Jewellery Editor).
We were then doubly pleased to hear Sheeran say in an interview with the Sun “I never saw why men didn’t wear engagement rings, Cherry made it for me herself out of silver clay. I really like it.”
Yay for silver clay! And for making your own rings!
