According to Wedding Wire, 33% of engagements occur between Thanksgiving and New Years. This busy proposal season continues until Valentine's Day, when another 10% of engagements commence.For people looking to sell engagement rings, particularly pre-owned engagement rings, this time of year presents the best opportunity to recoup the largest share of their original investment. Since 2010, Have You Seen the Ring has helped sellers earn over $2 million for their pre-owned engagement rings.
