IF you're thinking of popping the question this Valentine's Day but not had enough time to save the cash, Poundland might be able to come to your rescue.

Engagement rings have been spotted on sale at the high street shop, just a month before the most romantic day of the year.

The 'Bling Ring' jewellery has already sparked a debate on social media.


A photo posted in the Facebook group 'Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK' show a silver ring with a red jewel, presented in a red heart-shaped box, with the slogan 'because we promise they'll want to choose their own'.

Some people liked the placeholder effect, saying it gave couples the chance to choose their ideal ring together.

One poster said: "Is this not the best idea ever? Buy a cheap ring from Poundland to propose then go to the shop so you can pick a proper one together."


However, some weren't a fan of the tongue-in-cheek approach, with one commenter asking: "Why would anyone want to pick their own ring? Isn't the point of it that the man you love has chosen it for you?"

One person simply added: "Nothing says undying love like an engagement ring from Poundland."

Poundland have said the rings, available in a variety of colours, are part of their new Valentine's Day range and give people the opportunity to propose 'before they need to invest in the real rock'.

The range of £1 rings, made with Cubic Zirconia, come in a range of sizes and are available in silver and gold colour with gemstones resembling diamond, ruby and topaz.

The high street store added: "These are beautiful placeholder rings because we know they'll want to buy their own.

"We're looking forward to the Poundland proposal becoming the way it's done. Our bling ring is setting the scene for the real deal."
