In our opinion here at Ziamond, Avril’s engagement ring look very similar to Jessica Simpson’s engagement ring, when she was married to Nick Lache. They both seem to have pear shaped center stones with accent side stones but Avril’s certainly looks to be a lot larger. Stay tuned because Ziamond may have a very similar version made with our amazing Russian formula cubic zirconia and it would be set in solid gold or Platinum.

Ziamond Cubic Zirconia Engagement Ring

While we here at Ziamond know the cost vs. benefits of choosing a Ziamond cubic zirconia engagement ring over a naturally mined diamond, there are couples getting engaged that still do the traditional diamond thing. While the overall spend for couples’ weddings have increased, they have pulled back on the spending for their rings.

Research shows that in 2010 the average spend on a genuine diamond engagement ring was $5,329. While in 2011 that spend declined to $5,130.  The entire budget of a wedding averaged a cost of $27,021 in 2011 up from $26,984 in 2010. 
Additional interesting facts from this survey: 
– December seemed to be the most popular month couples got engaged.

This survey captured responses from nearly 18,000 U.S. brides, married between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31, 2011.
