Business Insider has published a list of how much people in each state paid for an engagement ring last year, on average.

Recall that last year, The Knot announced that the average price paid for an engagement in the U.S. was $6,351, up from $5,095 in 2011. The new state-by-state report was compiled with help from online diamond seller Ritani, Business Insider explains.

As it turns out, there are significant disparities in engagement-ring spending from one part of the country to another.

The highest average spending was in California, where the average price paid was $10,241.

The lowest average spending last year was in Utah, where the average price paid was $3,518.

Of course, the average cost of an engagement ring depends on whom you ask. In June 2017, research firm The Wedding Report announced that the average price paid in the first quarter of that year was $3,406 — significantly lower than The Knot’s figure.

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
