One thing I love is going around in the local community and being able to help and support these businesses. Recently in the past few weeks, I had the opportunity to go visit Beeghly and Company Jewelers for an opportunity of a lifetime. I will be the first to admit that I am not a girl that has a ring picked out and I am not a girl that has dreams of a ring. Those two things are something that are not on top of my priorities. So to have the opportunity to come in and help promote an event and try on some GORGEOUS diamond’s. The team at Beeghly & Company has worked with hundreds of engagement ring couples. They have put their heads together and the collective experience over the course of 20 years to develop a process for envisioning the perfect engagement ring.
You can count me in.
We decided for myself, to cover one big topic when it came to engagement rings. And that being the idea of what stone, style, color of metal does one pick. Knowing that so many men do not have a clue when they walk into a jewelry store. And or myself who has no clue what she likes, they decided to school us and help with finding the perfect ring. Did you know that the average man spends $6,351 on an engagement ring, that was 2017 alone? Much higher than in 2011 when it rounded around $5,000.
I decided to throw some quick facts in about engagement rings in a 2017 study alone:
• Average Engagement Ring Spend: $6,351 (up from $5,095 in 2011)
• Average Time Spent Looking for Ring: 3.5 Months
• Average Time Spent Planning a Proposal: 4.4 Months
• Average Number of Rings Looked at Before Purchase: 26
• Engagement Rings with a Custom Design: 45%
• Most Popular Stone Cut: Round (52%)
• Average Carat Size for Center Stone: 1.2 carats
• Average Carat Size for Total Ring: 1.8 carats
• Most Popular Engagement Ring Setting Metal: White Gold (61%)
While I am someone that has no clue what she likes when it comes to a ring it was so much fun taking the time out of my schedule to go and try on and be educated about rings. Being able to see what works best for me and to see what I personally like is something that is so important. SO many people my generation are changing the way they think about engagement rings. For all of my local peeps in the Pittsburgh area make sure to save the date for March 23rd and 24th to take time to find the perfect ring!
