WOULD you be brave enough to propose to your partner with a £1 engagement ring?

With the leap year day of February 29 just around the corner, the date every four years when women traditionally propose to men, Poundland have helped couples.

The High Street chain has launched his and hers stand-by engagement rings for anyone looking to pop the question.

For the budget retailer, it’s the first foray into men’s jewellery after it launched a line of engagement bling last year for women.

The ‘man band’ comes in four styles and finger sizes and is presented in a fancy navy velvet presentation box. The tongue-in-cheek packaging encourages girlfriends to take the leap and do the asking ‘because he might never get around to it!’
