Your Ring, Your Choice: 1 in 3 Women Choose their Own Engagement Ring

  1. 1. Your Ring, Your Choice: 1 in 3 Women Choose their Own Engagement Ring Abby Sparks Designs 3216 Tejon St. Suite 200, Denver CO 80211 (303) 223-6478
  2. 2. It used to be that wedding proposals were exclusively carried out by the men. Before a man would pop the question, he would take up the task of selecting the ring that best suits his significant other. Today, women influencing (or leading) the ring selection has become quite the new norm. More brides-to-be are taking active roles in their engagement. In fact, a number of them are researching their wants and dropping hints for their husbands-to-be. With the engagement ring spend rising, men are putting more time, thought, and energy into buying the perfect ring for a memorable proposal. What Studies Say British online newspaper Mail Online reported about a survey claiming that as many as one in every three women who say yes to a marriage proposal were involved in the purchase of the ring. When proposed to with a ring they do not like, a number insist on changes or buying a new one entirely. Unhappy brides-to-be demand a ring change before fully committing to the proposal, says the study.
  3. 3. Another study by The Knot, a US-based wedding source, revealed that a majority of brides know the cost of their rings. 67 percent of them researched their rings prior to their engagement through their mobile phones. 80 percent of the men revealed that their partner constantly dropped hints while, 71 percent of women admitted to being open about it. Of the 71 percent, 51 percent of the women hinted the styles they wanted while shopping. 36% took a bold move and told their partner what they wanted, while 11% took a subtle approach by leaving ads around the house. The Stones Women Love While diamonds are still a girl’s best friend, a study found an increase in non- diamond engagement rings. Today, women are attracted to gemstone alternatives due to their traditional meanings. Choosing a gemstone promises a special significance to both parties, which creates a unique ring with a built-in layer of meaning. Some women would choose onyx, garnet, and emerald over the traditional diamond ring.
  4. 4. Why Women Choose Most women still wish to be surprised when it comes to the ring. The proposal, however, comes with a risk of ending up with the wrong ring. This is one of the reasons why women prefer to have a say in their engagement ring. People have varying tastes and the preferences between men and women are entirely different. Men still choose the ring for themselves, but today, women are taking a more active role to ensure choices they will not regret.
