New York named most popular place to propose

11 Jan 2017

The Big Apple has been revealed as the most popular place to propose in recent findings by Avanti Jewelllers

Analysing thousands of Instagram hashtags and 10,000 photos, Avanti Jewellers has discovered the most popular places to propose.

While New York, with its blend of luxury, romance and excitement took the top spot, Sydney came in at second place and the Grand Canyon took third position. 

However, Paris's popularity appears to be on the decline, ranking 12th and eclipsed by London which pipped the 'city of Love' to the post in sixth place.

Alan Matkin, managing directorof Avanti Jewellers, said: "Proposing to someone is one of the biggest moments of a person’s life. That got us thinking about what makes the perfect proposal – time and time again, the location came up. Whilst everyone is different, there are always going to be some certain places which just have that romantic allure – New York, Paris, Rome – these are classics for a reason. It’s nice to see London with such a high spot on the list too."

A full breakdown of the most popular places to pop the question can be found on the Avanti website.
