What’s the only thing better than a diamond? How about when that precious stone is set into the perfect ring, and put on your finger by the love of your life? #Awwww

Well it turns out that this special moment may be heavily influenced by geography. The jewelry site Brilliant Earth just put out a study, ‘An Analysis of Engagement Ring Purchases’, that reveals some juicy tidbits about what different states look for in a ring.

Probably the saddest title goes to Alaska: the ‘Most Brokenhearted State’ has the highest rate of engagement ring returns.

You can see other states that finished highly in each category on the graphic maps. Stats like ‘Interest in Lab Created Diamonds’ and ‘Preference for Vintage Rings’ are interesting in their own right.

But they’re not the really fun ones:

In case you’re wondering where to get the biggest ring possible, you need to find a partner from California – the west coast ranks highest for carat size per purchase. Question: how is Texas, where ‘everything’s bigger’, only ninth?

Interestingly, California doesn’t spend the most on their rings. Nevada wins ‘States Where Couples Spent the Most on a Ring’. Sounds like a lot of couples got lucky at the slot machines.

But maybe you’re not into traditional diamonds – maybe you want something a little more colorful? The folks at Brilliant Earth can help you there too, revealing which states most commonly use other precious gemstones.

So, if you were planning on moving to a new state solely based on your future wedding ring preferences (which would be odd), now you’re all set!

I had a rough childhood. I watched my parents murdered right before my eyes. Shot point-blank by some two-bit thug.

So I ran away from Gotham and wandered the earth, until eventually Liam Neeson found me in an obscure Asian jail. He gave me a home, taught me to fight, and showed me the true meaning of justice meant wearing black rubber latex and speaking really deeply. 

Then I killed him with a flying commuter train.
