The coronavirus outbreak has affected the wedding industry in many ways. Large wedding gatherings might be on hold, but what isn’t on hold is are couples showing their love for one another and getting engaged

According to a report by The Knot, more than 6 in 10 engaged couples say that stay-at-home restrictions due to the coronavirus have strengthened their relationships.

Jewelers say that despite difficult economic times, they are seeing consumers spend more than ever on diamond engagement rings. The reasons for this include:

  • Increased sense of intimacy and desire to sacrifice for each other
  • More budget available because of canceled weddings and honeymoons
  • Pent up demand to spend after months of nowhere to go

This holiday season, fine jewelry retailers are reporting that their diamond sales are strong, with bridal being the primary driver for consumer demand.

  • What should a customer look for when it comes to picking a diamond
