Every person has a different answer. Depends on your financials and the financials of the family you are marring into.

I guess I should have asked if engagement/wedding rings are common with most here.

More than common. Giving the wedding ring is an internal part of the marriage. Technically you can use anything but a wedding ring is what's used. I may even go to say that we are the reason everyone else does it. Or at least we kept it in practice for thousands of years.

Chabad custom is not to give a ring until the wedding.

And only the bride gets one.
And the wedding band can't be engraved.

And the wedding band must be just a simple band.

The costume of all Jews is a plain gold band by the chupa. Does Chabad not do a engagement ring?? No diamond?
