Tiffany & Co. launches its first-ever line of diamond engagement rings for MEN

Tiffany & Co. will begin selling men’s engagement rings for the first time ever this month after seeing a rise in demand for diamond baubles aimed at guys who are getting hitched. 

The luxury jeweler has announced the launch of its first-ever men’s engagement ring settings, which will be available to purchase later this month with round, brilliant, and emerald-cut diamonds.

While gay men have taken to social media to celebrate the new offering, there has also been increased demand for engagement rings among straight guys in recent years, with celebrities including Ed Sheeran, Michael Bublé, and Pitch Perfect star Skylar Astin all sporting their own masculine bling.

However, not everyone is impressed with the new trend, with several men sharing their disapproval on social media, while branding the new Tiffany designs ‘ugly’ and ‘wrong on so many levels’.

While men have long worn simple metallic wedding bands, these engagement rings are a ‘bold departure from the traditional wedding band’ and can fit diamonds of up to 4.3 carats.

‘Why not diamonds for men?’ Frank Everett, senior vice president, sales director for Sotheby’s luxury division in New York, asked the Wall Street Journal

‘Most men love diamonds but haven’t necessarily thought about applying them in their own jewelry.’

He thinks that diamond engagement rings for men may lead to men buying more diamond jewelry. 

‘Once men break the ice and wear a diamond, it becomes comfortable and natural,’ he added.
