Lebrusan Studio has reported an increase in searches for commitment rings, with over 1,200% shoppers visiting the site looking for such pieces.
According to the brand, the stats show that during the three months coming out of lockdown, “more lovers were searching for the term ‘commitment ring’ than ever before”.
During the first quarter of the year, Lebrusan Studio saw 380 searches for this key term, compared with 5,378 in the last three quarters, showing an “exponential spike and an undeniable feeling that when all else fails, love still prevails”.
Founder Arabel Lebrusan said: “As a fine and bespoke jeweller, I am acutely aware that wedding season is very much on hold, which has seen a natural slow in the sale of wedding bands.
“However, couples have in some cases spent more time than ever with each other and now want to cement their love in ways they may not have considered before.”
She added: “A commitment ring says I am committed to you, I love you and I want to spend my life with you – it is an unequivocable symbol of hope for the future.
“These rings may be in place of a formal engagement ring or wedding band, or just a placeholder until things return to ‘normal’, either way, at Lebrusan Studio we are thrilled to be able to continue sharing in the love.”
Starting at £237 for a Braided Ethical Gold Ring, the full range of commitment rings can be viewed on the brand’s dedicated commitment ring home page.
