Survey says Millennials not as attached to engagement rings as older generations

It turns out some young people are just not that into engagement rings, a new survey suggests.

The survey by WD Diamond says 37 percent of millennials would have no problem selling their engagement rings later in life to pay for a house or college.

Only 23 percent of older generations would be willing to sell an engagement ring.

The survey also found 55 percent of millennials sold diamonds and other sentimental jewelry last year to help make ends meet.

People in their 20's are also choosing skipping the traditional white diamond ring choosing simple gold bands and color gemstones.
