I hope you didn’t switch off the second you read the title of this post. For our overseas readers Tesco’s is a huge supermarket retailer that has branched out – successfully – into clothing and homewares on top of their groceries. One of their latest ventures is a foray into the jewellery fields and they’ve produced a diamond and gold engagement ring for a mere £47. Real fake diamonds, you ask? Actually no. The diamond is 1/10 of a carat set into 9 carat yellow gold and it is actually rather nice. By contrast a 1/2 carat diamond ring from Tiffany’s is going to set you back at least £2000. The ring pictured is very similar to the £47 ring and also from the Tesco’s range.
Guys – if you want to propose with a ring but would rather let your bride actually choose the style after you’ve surprised her, then this is a good substitute. Alternatively snap it up and upgrade later if you want to.
