77 Diamonds released a new report.

The average celebrity engagement ring in 2016 was valued at about $1.29 million, according to a new report from 77 Diamonds.

For its  Celebrity Engagement Ring Trends Report 2017, the diamond retailer looked at 100 of the highest-profile celebrity proposals.

Yellow gold has been the favored metal for celebrity rings in 2017. That’s a change from 2016, when white gold was preferred. From 2013 to 2015, platinum was the material of choice.

Emerald is currently the gem of choice. In 2013 and 2014, oval-cut diamonds were favored.

London-based Diamonds 77 noted that $632,999 was the average amount spent on an engagement ring for celebrities still married in 2017. Celebs who are no longer together, on the other hand, spent over $1 million, on average, on their precious ring.

When Sales Beat Projections, You Know Wilkerson Did Its Job

There are no crystal balls when it comes to sales projections. But when Thomasville, Georgia jeweler Fran Lewis chose Wilkerson to run the retirement/going-out-of-business sale for Lewis Jewelers and More, she was pleasantly surprised to learn that even Wilkerson could one-up its own sales numbers. “Not only did we meet our goal, but we exceeded the goal that Wilkerson had given us by about 134%,” she says. After more than 40 years in the business, Lewis says she decided a few years ago to “move towards retirement.” And she was impressed by Wilkerson’s tenure in the industry. Overall, she’d recommend the company to anyone else who may be thinking it’s time to hang up their loupe. “As a full package, they’ve done a very good job and I’d definitely recommend Wilkerson.”
