Poundland Sells 20,000 Engagement Rings In One Week

Poundland Sells 20,000 Engagement Rings In One Week

With less than two weeks to go until Valentine's Day, the pressure is well and truly on to make sure it's one to remember - for the right reasons - for your significant other.

No, sex tokens for 'massages' won't cut it and neither will those bunch of sad looking roses you picked up from the petrol station forecourt. It's time to nut up, go hard or go home, and other such graphic euphemisms.

Let's face it, you can't go much bigger or harder than getting down on one knee and popping the big question, can you? And you don't have to break the bank either, with Poundland's bargain basement £1 engagement rings flying off the shelves since they were released last month.

According to the budget retailer, they sold 20,000 of the bleeders in just one week.

Frances O'Sullivan, jewellery and Valentines buyer at Poundland, said: "Thousands of Brits are already quids in thanks to the £1 proposal.

"It's clearly a gem of an idea and the nation agrees."

The 'Bling Ring' Cubic Zirconia products even come in a range of styles (c'mon, this is personal, you couldn't give them just any £1 engagement ring) and sizes, and are presented in a fetching red box that you can snap open once you've got down on one knee.

At the time they were released last month, Frances described them as 'beautiful placeholder rings', which were 'setting the scene for the real deal'.

So if you're thinking of asking that special someone to be yours forever, it looks like you're not alone.

Earlier this year, a study found that more than 100,000 men in the UK are expected to ask their loved one to marry them this Valentine's Day.

Yep, 115,000 men - around five percent of all men in the United Kingdom, to be exact - who are currently living with their partners will have chosen the special day to pop the big question in a matter of days.

However, a word to the wise, before jumping head-first into a decision that will no doubt change your life forever, bear in mind that according to some research, around a quarter of proposals end in abject failure.

Sorry to be a downer, but it's true.
