Engagement rings make statements of love and intention. They are symbols of lasting affection. Picking the right engagement ring can be one of the most important purchases a person makes. Whereas the wedding band symbolizes eternity, the engagement ring tells a totally different story. Here are a few facts you might not have known about engagement rings in New Jersey.

  1. The average engagement ring in New Jersey costs about $4000 (Friedman, 2015). You can buy rings that cost more or less, and the price does not necessarily indicate the quality of the ring. The price might have a bearing on the size and clarity of the diamond but some of the snazziest, most special engagement rings are smaller, have sentimental or antique value as family heirlooms, or are designed well.
  2. Three-quarters of all American engagement rings have diamonds in them (Friedman, 2015). Although other precious gems can be used for characterful engagement rings, the vast majority of engagement rings in New Jersey are traditional diamond engagement rings.
  3. The engagement ring is a new tradition, stemming back to just over a hundred years ago. Did you know that the diamond engagement ring tradition started because the DeBeers mines in South Africa initiated a successful marketing campaign–perhaps one of the most successful in history? The concept of a diamond lasting forever is just ad copy–but it’s as good as gold now.
  4. The engagement ring symbolizes the character of the individual and the relationship too. Each engagement ring can be individualized or even custom designed to taste. There is no “right” look to an engagement ring.
  5. An engagement ring symbolizes romance. Even more than a wedding band, which does symbolize eternity because of its shape, a diamond engagement ring represents the concept of romantic love.
