New Statistics - Platinum popular in London and White Gold Popular in Greater Manchester for Engagement Rings.
Recent statistics show that the sales for white gold engagement rings in Greater Manchester are higher than London, while sales for platinum engagement rings in London are higher than Greater Manchester. The north/south divide is stronger than ever in the world of buying engagement rings! A recent sales survey from a jeweller based in Manchester and London has found that Londoners prefer platinum and northerners prefer white gold when it comes to buying an engagement ring. Many jewellers constantly have the debate as to which metal is better gold or platinum? The survey also reviled that the spending habit on engagement rings differ around the UK. The top spending county was West Glamorgan, South Wales with an average of £2,535 per spend and the lowest was County Antrim in Northern Ireland with an average spend of £509 per engagement ring. It seems that in the war between platinum vs gold there are clear winners in certain parts of the country. Which precious metal do you prefer?
