Thinking of diamond engagement rings in New York? Find the best place to buy an engagement ring, where to propose, and how to get the best prices.

New York City is America’s greatest fashion, finance, arts and cultural epicenter. With one of the most iconic skylines in the world and 5 bustling boroughs, NYC never fails to excite and inspire.

New York City is also home to America’s largest diamond district on the glittering 47th Street. In fact, 90% of the nation’s diamonds pass through New York before making their way into your local jewelry store. Diamonds are the state’s largest export.

Given NYC’s huge role in the U.S. diamond business, it’s no surprise that the average engagement ring size here is larger as well. And if you’ve got a designer budget, the famed 5th Avenue is home to Tiffany, Bvlgari, Harry Winston, and Cartier.

3 Top Places to Propose

Proposing atop the Empire State Building is so cliché. Luckily, NYC has no shortage of equally impressive locations for an unforgettable proposal. Here are a few of the top places for your magical moment:

  • On top of the Rock: If you want to have the entire city of NYC as your backdrop, go for Rockefeller Center instead. You’ll get better views and less crowds. Go during the golden hour for the most magical glow over the whole city.

  • In Central Park: With 843 acres of lush greenery, you are sure to find an intimate setting. Take her out on a rowboat in the lake or stroll through the romantic Shakespeare Garden. For the ultimate movie moment, pop the question while riding through the park in a horse-drawn carriage.

  • The Highline: This abandoned railroad has been repurposed into an elevated park. Meshing historical elements with modern design work and landscaping, the Highline is the newest trendy spot to propose.
