Anyway, if you're considering a proposal at the moment, here are 5 quirky engagement rings you can find on Etsy, which has a good choice of handmade, vintage and unusual rings.
1. The budget engagement ring
For £200 you won't get a brand new high grade diamond, but you might consider something like this vintage 18 carat gold engagement ring with a 0.15 carat diamond for £190.
Alternatively, go for an alternative gemstone such as this gorgeous emerald and diamond ring for £186.
2. The mid-budget engagement ring
If you are working to a budget of around £1000, you've got a pretty huge market to choose from.
Personally I like a traditional solitaire diamond with white gold, but do some discreet digging through your potential spouse's jewellery box to work out which styles and colours they go for.
How about this 0.45 carat diamond in a platinum setting for less than £900?
3. The making-an-impression engagement ring
How about this vintage Tiffany & Co engagement ring for just over £10,000?
It's got a 1.21 carat diamond and comes with the Tiffany certificate and presentation box.
Prepare for the sound of a jaw dropping if you propose with this ring...
4. The alternative engagement ring
Or how about an uncut diamond, showing off the value of a diamond but a bit of quirky individual style? This 1.40 carat uncut diamond is £700.
