A poll of 1,000 women has found that husbands who spent more than £1,000 on an engagement ring were less likely to get divorced.

A poll of 1,000 women has found that husbands who spent more than £1,000 on an engagement ring were less likely to get divorced. The survey interviewed 1,000 women from across the country, and it revealed that 43 per cent of women surveyed received an engagement ring worth less than £300, while 26 per cent had received a ring valued between £300 and £1,000.

Of those surveyed who are now divorced - a total of 150 women - just one had been given an engagement ring worth over £5,000 before the marriage came to an end. 54 per cent of the divorced women had actually been given rings worth less than £300, which didn’t leave a great impression.

“I must admit my ex-husband, who was quite wealthy, spent just £200 on my engagement ring,” claimed divorced Sandra Graham. “I can’t say I was very impressed when he told me how much it cost, but we had six good years together and are still friends, although I do rib him about how much he spent now and again.”

Marlow’s Diamonds, a leading provider of diamond engagement rings, takes a keen interest in reports such as this. A spokesperson provided this statement: “Perhaps the results of this survey shouldn’t be too surprising, as you can’t imagine many women being happy with a ring worth less than £300! An engagement ring is something to cherish for your entire life, so it makes sense to take the time and effort to find the perfect one for your partner. You can get all kinds of different designs and styles, but if you need help choosing any reputable diamond specialist should be able to give you all the assistance you need.”
