Los Angeles, California
As the home of Hollywood filmmaking, many a love story has been scripted in Los Angeles. We mined our data to see what real life LA residents prefer when buying an engagement ring. Compared to buyers in other large cities, Angelinos more frequently favour cushion-cut diamonds that are internally flawless.
When they've settled on a ring, there are many great options regarding where to propose. Of course, there's the classic spot in front of the Hollywood sign. For something different, there's always the observatory at Griffith Park, or the rooftop of the Hollywood bowl. There are plenty of romantic spots to be found at Central Garden at the Getty Centre or the Los Angeles Arboretum & Botanic Garden. For a place outside of the city, try a drive on the Pacific Coast Highway towards Point Dume, where the sunsets are second-to-none, or head up to the mountains for a cozy cabin in Idyllwild.
