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.

Wilkerson Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
