Poundland Shoppers In Furious Debate As £1 Engagement Rings Return To Stores
Over the last few days, shoppers have spotted the cheap engagement rings are back in store, with one person posting a snap of the Poundland stand on Facebook group, Money Saver Online.
But shoppers are pretty divided over the plastic rings - while some think they're a great placeholder, adding "it's the thought that counts" others argued they would "turn your finger green".
In favour of the affordable jewellery, one person explained: "Seriously...if I loved him and he loved me..then I'd wear it with pride. True love isn't defined by how much a ring is worth."
While another said: "Personally I wouldn't care, it's the thought that counts! Yes it may turn your finger green but love doesn't come in material things!"
And another pointed out: "I think these are a fab idea if you know your partner would like to choose the ring, OR if you aren't sure on her ring size, that can all be done when you're choosing the real ring together OR if you plan to do it abroad etc and don't want to risk losing the expensive one along the journey."

Others were not convinced, however, with one writing: "Sorry can only have gold come out in a rash if it's cheap."
And another said: "Probably the type of ring that turns your finger green."
Others tagged their partners as a subtle hint, with one pointing out: "Can't go wrong for a quid!"
The £1 'bling rings' and 'man bands' were a huge hit last Valentine's Day, with the retailer announcing they had sold almost 40,000 ahead of 14th February 2020.
They also introduced the 'man band' to encourage women to pop the question "because he might never get around to doing it".
The rings are available in a selection of styles and finger sizes and are expected to be just as popular this year, too.
