Tis the season to be engaged! Jewelry stores are filled with silver and gold, sparkling with a diamond (or diamonds) awaiting a ring finger to adorn. According to our infographic, 43 percent of couples get engaged between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Eve. Hence, why it’s no surprise that more couples get engaged during the holiday season than any other time of the calendar year. Perhaps, it’s one of these top reasons why your significant other proposed:

  • You didn’t suspect anything when he/she went out to do some holiday shopping.
  • It was the perfect opportunity to ask your parents’ permission.
  • Having your family around made it more memorable.

Did your significant other pop the question? Let us know in the poll below.

For those art deco lovers out there–try these geometric-shaped engagement rings. An emerald cut ring that features a mosaic white diamond surrounded by pink diamonds or a princess cut, solitaire diamond with a shank cupping one side of the gemstone turns your ring into a non-traditional statement piece. Check out more engagement rings photos in our gallery for even more eye candy.

For those hopeless romantics out there–try these floral-detailed engagement rings. Marquise oval-cut diamonds along the band gives the illusion of petals surrounding a flower whereas having a cluster of diamonds surrounding one larger diamond looks as if it’s a flower too. Check out more engagement ring photos in our gallery for even more eye candy.
