An estimated 2 million people get married in the United States each year. Usually, before there can be a wedding, there is an engagement. Marriage proposals are a very big deal. Nervous men, and sometimes women, plan everything from the best time and place to pop the question to whether or not to get a marquise cut diamond engagement ring.
There are many different styles of rings. Standard and designer diamond engagement rings Atlanta and other cities are available in a variety of cuts, styles and sizes. Oval cut diamonds usually look good with large stones, and the oval cut looks larger than the round cut diamonds. It is the setting of the ring that really defines the look, but it is the diamond itself that makes up around 90 percent of the cost of the ring. Marquise cut diamond engagement rings are a popular choice.
Traditionally, women are given engagement rings. However, 29 percent of men who were surveyed said that if they were given an engagement ring they would wear it. The most popular month for engagements is December.
