As the cultural hub of the Midwest, it should be no surprise that the citizens of Chicago have great taste when selecting diamond engagement rings. Overwhelmingly, Chicagoans prefer the classic beauty of an ideal cut, colorless, round diamond.
When it comes time to decide on the perfect place to propose, The Windy City is chockfull of options. For those looking for a spot alongside Lake Michigan, Buckingham Fountain can provide a classic backdrop. Some of the best city views can be had from the Signature Room on the 95th floor of the John Hancock, or the observation deck in America's tallest building, Willis Tower. For nature lovers, it's hard to decide whether the flora of the Lincoln Park Conservatory or the fauna at the zoo would make a better setting. And of course, the adventurous can always pop the question atop the Ferris wheel at Navy Pier.
