    ...after Chen Hong wins a gold medal in the Olympics... I noticed Gao Ling has one on the same finger too... Looks like they have to postpone the wedding

    Males and females do not normally wear engagement rings it's usually only the female, Gao's ring to me looked more like a plain wedding band and if Chen Hong is wearing one as well then they are already married.

    There was no stone on the ring and it just looked plain, normally engagement rings have some kind of precious stone on the top.

    Or is this only in Western culture?

    Then again they could be friendship rings until they are married.

    This is only Anglo-Saxon culture actually, Mediterranean cultures, such at Greeks and some Italian groups exchange bands as well.

    In other words it's almost impossible to tell if they are married or engaged.

    PS Also to note, the guy gets really ripped off in Anglo-Saxon engagements
