The engagement ring: tradition lost for some time in Russia is coming back.
- YIt is a common thing to make a proposal to a girl accompanying it with a precious gift.
- As a rule, it is a ring with a diamond. Though, it was not always so boring, especially since rubies, sapphires, emeralds and natural pearls that used to be presented to a girl, sometimes are of the same cost.
In the 50s of the 20th century De Beers company launched an unprecedented advertising campaign about diamonds, and thus, forced the Americans, and then the whole world to buy only diamonds.
We are trying to scrap this Americanism and revive the old Russian tradition of engagement rings with various precious stones which any happy bride can boast to her friends.
