- Wedding: September 2014
Well, someone has taken some sort of survey! Apparently you’ll be divorced soon if you own a similar ring to the one in the story. I think it’s just because it’s a popular style at the moment, if the entire thing isn’t made up. 🙂
Here be pics and the story, in case it won’t load for you/you’re too lazy 🙂
IF THE man in your life asks for your hand in marriage with this ring be afraid, or at least mildly concerned.
It turns out this is the type and style of ring most divorced and separated women own.
Independent jewellery sitecompare.jewellery.com wanted to delve into the tastes and style preferences of the UK’s divorced and separated women.
According to its study, 98 per cent of ladies were given an engagement ring from their partner, but of these surveyed only 35 per cent were still wearing it.
The site quizzed 1812 women, who were either currently separated or divorced, what their engagement rings looked like, and asked them to describe the type of metal, stone, style and any notable features.
The answers were then used to find the most common engagement ring traits as well as the styles that subsequently ended in divorce or separation.
They were then used to collate the features of the UK’s ‘unluckiest’ engagement ring.
So what are these qualities?
The unluckiest engagement ring, based on the most common traits of those owned by divorcees is made with white gold, features a large stone with diamonds on the shoulder and costs around $1300.
