Man-gagement rings

Turns out women aren't the only ones who like shiny objects: The male engagement ring has once again entered the spotlight.

The blogosphere is buzzing about this ABC News piece, where some of the trend's most ardent supporters state their cases.

A comment from a New York jeweler draws on the most popular argument in favor of engagement rings for men:

"If you think about it, a woman is engaged and wears an engagement ring on her finger, oftentimes [for] north of a year. And a guy's engaged during that same time and walks into a bar as a free man ... so I think for $350, $400 for a woman to claim her territory, it's catching on pretty quickly."

Man-gagement rings: Territory claimers, or just plain cheesy?
