Diamonds are a girl’s best friend. But, do Bigger Diamonds Equal Divorce? Expensive Engagement Rings Linked to Higher Divorce Rates.
New research suggests the bigger the diamond engagement ring, the shorter the marriage might be. Women whose engagement rings cost over $20,000 are 3.5 more likely to get divorced than those in the $5,000 to $10,000 range. Men who spent $2,000 to $4,000 on their wife’s ring got divorced 1.5 time more than those who dropped between $500 and $2,000.
