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.

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
