No , If the girl loves you enough she could over look the enagement ring. But later she may want one to show her friends . It kinda of romantic when a guy does a implusive thing and pops the question and you use whatever is around you as a ring like one from the little machines at Walmart lol .. and tell her you will get her one later . I'm sure she will love you no matterwhat you have ...

It is a customary symbol of a betrothal. It can be a simple ring or an elaborate one.

It's not required, but there are statistics that show fewer people accept a proposal when there is no ring. It's also harder to know if someone is being serious, or just doing some high-school "hey baby, marry me" type of thing. The ring is what symbolizes the engagement so it's very defining. Some suitors don't get a ring beforehand, but let the bride-to-be pick one out (since she will be the one wearing it).

In short, no engagement rings are not necessary. However, if there is no engagement ring then there is no symbol or proof of the verbal commitment. If a woman says she is married, but does not wear an engagement ring, it might make it harder to prove that she is engaged.
