Why Are Women Buying Engagement Rings for Themselves?

It seems increasingly common for women to either marry later in life or to decide not to marry at all and just be in a relationship without the commitment of marriage.

Although, recently another movement appeared amongst women, seemingly based entirely on self-development and self-reliance. It is the act of celebrating yourself through a commitment to you and only you, whereby women now buy unique engagement rings for themselves as a statement of their independence.

Some women proceed in a discreet and subtle way by just buying their unique engagement ring directly and keeping its symbolism to themselves. Others decide to go through the planning of a fictional marriage to make a clear statement to the world and celebrate this commitment with their friends.

Between 2004 and 2014, the percentage of women who were single and not living with anyone rose by 11%. That is quite considerable.
The reasons for this seems to relate to women being more focused on their careers, wanting more time to dedicate to themselves and their own interests –– without the stress of caring for someone else, thinking for two, or having to consider another’s thoughts or feelings before doing something. Furthermore, you get to see your friends on a more regular basis.
In a way, this moment where you buy a unique engagement ring as a commitment to yourself is a representation of the world as it has become today. Committing to self-development should always be part of your life, whether you are in a relationship or not.

Deciding Which Engagement Ring Matches Your Personality and Lifestyle

Now remains the fun task of choosing a unique engagement ring that will represent you and is inspired by your lifestyle.

If you are a romantic at heart, who loves warm colours and round shapes, you could choose a heart-shaped diamond as a symbol of the love for yourself, set in a red gold engagement ring.

Should nature and flowers be what you love most, then you could choose a unique engagement ring inspired by that. Maybe with floral engravings on the shank of the ring or a diamond set in petal-shaped gold?

The important thing is that the ring represents you and the commitment you want to make to yourself in this life.
