Our engagement and wedding rings cost £10

RE the articles in The Bugle (July 17 and July 31 editions) about the cost of wedding and engagement rings, I think I can beat the diamond wedding couple.

Though it was in 1941/1946, so I have a head start.

My engagement ring was £5 from Griffiths the jeweller in Cradley Heath.

My wedding ring (22ct which was getting scarce) was also £5 from Samuel's, the jewellers, in West Bromwich.

The reception cost 2/6 (12½p) per head for about 24 people.

The honeymoon at Aberystwyth was paid for by my new husband and I can't remember the cost.

Mrs E. Cartwright,

41 Ham Lane,
