NEW YORK, NEW YORK
New York is world famous as a bustling cultural hub, and here at Blue Nile, we wondered if that impacted the style of engagement rings New Yorkers favored. Looking over our data, we found that New Yorkers seem to prefer their diamonds just like they like their skyscrapers, bigger. Not surprisingly, diamonds weigh in slightly heavier on average than any other major US city.
There're also an endless number of enchanting spots to propose. A proposal at the top of the Empire State Building is both classic and affords a beautiful view of the cityscape. In the winter, no spot can quite rival the romance of the ice rink at Rockefeller Center. For urban nature lovers, there's always a horse-drawn carriage ride through Central Park. Or try a stroll across the Brooklyn Bridge for a stunning view of Manhattan. For something different, consider renting a schooner for a trip down the Hudson or East Rivers.
