While neither Jennifer or Cooke have spoken publicly about their relationship, insiders have gushed about their chemistry, with a source telling People in June: 'She is smiling like I have never seen her do with any of her previous boyfriends'. I can remember exactly where I was (a pub) when I first discovered the economics of wedding and engagement rings, I was that astonished: the groom is supposed to spend three times his monthly salary on the item. The reason it should be so expensive is that the ring has many functions; a gesture of such great love it should cost more than a boiler; a symbol of individual wealth becoming irrelevant as two destinies are conjoined; and a signal to the rest of the world of the scale of the catch you have just landed.

Earlier this week, we told you about the bride-to-be who has been blasted for wanting to postpone the wedding because boyfriend can't afford her dream engagement ring. Poundland has reportedly sold 20,000 of their £1 engagement rings since launching them a week ago. The rings show there's been a bit of forethought, at least, and the proposal isn't a spur-of-the-moment idea.

They're also better than the traditional: "Hey, look at this expensive ring, let's get married" model – an old-fashioned, outdated tradition from the days when the only way women could be in any way financially secure was by marrying rich.

For some, these placeholders are a lifesaver: "My proposal was pretty much a disaster," says Rich, who has been married for four years. The only two things about it that were right were the woman I was asking, and the ring, which cost £5.95 from Argos."
