More than a THIRD of women pick out their own engagement ring

30 May 2019

Tradition looks like a thing of the past as a report reveals more women are taking control of their proposals

Research by diamond specialists, Aspire Diamonds, based in Birmingham, found that over a third of women are picking their own engagement rings.

The study revealed that 37% of women chose their own engagement ring, with the average value of the engagement ring around £1,650. 

Commenting on the findings, Richard Askey of Aspire Diamonds said: “We’re seeing more couples shopping for engagement rings together, and often after the proposal has already happened. In fact, we found that 29% of people received a ring after the proposal.

“The engagement ring is such an important purchase as it’s worn for the rest of your life, therefore it’s no surprise to see it becoming more of a joint decision as no one wants to get it wrong.”
