When it comes to engagement rings, tradition has always drawn a line in the sand. Women’s rings, line, men’s rings. Things change, of course. The tides of progress have begun to wear smooth this once precise line, as more and more people move away from traditional binary structures. And as we move toward a more inclusive future, we begin to adjust things in preparation.
The jewellery industry is one industry that really noticed this change, with a rise in gender-neutral engagement rings. These rings are designed to be worn by anyone, regardless of their gender identity. In this article, we’ll take a closer look at what gender-neutral engagement rings are, the diverse types available, and what to consider when buying one.
A gender-neutral engagement ring is a piece of jewelry designed to be worn by anyone, regardless of their gender identity. Think simple, elegant, minimal. Unlike traditional engagement rings that are often gender-specific, gender-neutral engagement rings are designed to be versatile and appeal to a wider range of people.
The rise of gender-neutral engagement rings is reflective of a broader societal shift towards inclusivity and breaking down the barriers of traditional gender roles. With more people rejecting gender norms, it only makes sense that the jewellery industry would follow suit and create rings that cater to a wider audience.
When it comes to gender-neutral engagement rings, the many diverse styles and designs afforded to traditional engagement rings are still available. Here are a few of the most popular options:
