More and more couples couplesÂ are breaking tradition and sharing the cost of an engagement ring.
This articleÂ spotlights brides in New York City who areÂ flaunting rocks that they paid for themselves or chipped in to help cover.Â A few reasons these women broke out the dough include avoiding debt, already sharing finances, wanting a larger diamond and a bride who makes more money.
According toÂ The Knot, about 2 out of 3 brides are involved in picking out their rings, and about 1 in 4 percent helped shop for it.
A new trend of man-gagement rings can also level the playing field, allowing a woman to purchase an engagement ring for her husband-to-be without contributing to her own ring.
Do you like where this trend is going? Or does it take the romance out of an engagement?
