PRESTON, England, December 23, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --

Studies have shown that December is the most popular month to get engaged, with a high proportion of men popping the question with a beautiful engagement ring from online jewellery suppliers such as the Beautiful Company.

Although there is a large amount of data regarding the time of year when couples get married, there are no official statistics about engagements. However, there has been research done by other sources.

The 2011 American Wedding Study from US magazine Brides found that 18% of all couples get engaged in December, and the month remains the most popular time of the year for engagements. The same study in 2009 found that 15% of couples got engaged in the same month, showing that Christmas and New Year engagements are increasing in popularity.

These figures are backed up by information from jewellers that report an increase in the sales of engagement rings; 12% of all rings are bought in the run up to Christmas according to the US National Jeweller Magazine.

Choosing the engagement ring is no longer just left to the man; the Brides study found that 68% of women provided input into the ring choice and 21% of brides-to-be even selected their own engagement ring.
