World’s Unluckiest Engagement Ring? We don’t Think So

Is this the unluckiest style of engagement ring?
Does the diamond shape and style of engagement ring have any bearing on having a successful engagement or marriage?  We find that a funny question because it seems ludicrous, but believe it or not, there was a recent poll taken in England on this very topic.
A study was done in Great Britain by comparejewellery.com asking nearly 2000 divorced or separated women about their engagement rings.  Most of the women were found to have worn a white gold ring with a diamond band and a princess cut square cut diamond center stone.  The website concluded that this style of engagement ring is the world’s “unluckiest engagement ring!”.  Wow, can that really have any merit? In any event it is interesting and humorous.    
The superstition continues with a man in Pennsylvania that claims his engagement ring “left a path of destruction behind it.”  Perhaps, this is all just a coincidence.  There are many happily married couples with princess cut and pave set diamond rings because this style of engagement ring is very popular. 

Is the princess cut and pave engagement ring style unlucky or just the couples who got divorced or separated?  We will never know for sure!   

Ziamond Cubic Zirconia Jewelers offers a variety of simulated diamond quality cubic zirconia shapes and carat sizes of engagement rings to compliment any lifestyle, none of which are considered unlucky!  Our Russian formula cubic zirconia stones are hand cut and hand polished to exact diamond specifications for the best possible finished product.  
Why spend thousands and thousands of dollars on genuine diamonds when you can have the same look and feel at a fraction of the cost?  Our expert jewelers provide you with the same high quality 14k gold, 18k gold or platinum mountings for a look that will absolutely surpass your expectations.
