When you picture your dream proposal, chances are the ring plays a pretty big part in it.
This evidently isn’t the case for men, as a recent survey by Beaverbrooks revealed that 24% of men are proposing without the ring… That’s right, not even a placeholder ring!

Further survey results revealed that 29% of women said it was crucial for the man to know exactly the type of ring she’d like, while 28% said it was essential that their fiance get the ring size right – maybe it’s all the pressure that’s putting men off buying a ring?! We bet they’d be mortified to buy you an engagement ring that you hate!
This exactly scenario has happened to more men than you might realise; 10% of women surveyed said they secretly cannot stand their ring, while 12% said they initially turned their nose up at their husband’s choice of a ring but have grown to love it over the years.
Lastly, 15% of the ladies asked admitted they secretly wished they had their friend’s engagement ring as they thought it was nicer than theirs… ouch!
