Poundland has announced they are starting to sell engagement rings just in time for a Valentine’s proposal. A picture of a Poundland engagement ring was posted on the Facebook group Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK with some members debating whether this is a nice gesture or too cheap.

One commenter said what a great idea this was while another suggested having the wedding reception in McDonald’s next. The intention of the ring is to have it as a promise ring while the couple can then choose a ring that they both love.

A 2017 survey done by jewelers Beaverbrooks said a quarter of men propose to their partners without a ring, out of fear of getting it wrong.

Engagement rings are expensive and can often cost up to 3 months wages. If you are planning to propose to your partner, the Poundland ring might be the way to go if you’re looking to do it on the cheap.

If anything, your partner will have a laugh and it will be certainly be a proposal your partner won’t forget!
