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.
Jewellery experts at Queensmith have shared their straightforward tips for when you need to clean your ring safely at home.

David King from King Jewellery tells us his top tips for choosing sustainable and eco-friendly jewellery. Shopping local will help cut down your carbon emissions, and using a bespoke goldsmith, who won't be buying ready-made jewellery that comes from abroad, is a great way of being more sustainable. We at Jewellery by Michael Kings encourage couples to bring in unused metal to be made into new jewellery, which cuts down on cost and emissions as well as adds a sentimental value to your piece.
