Curated online jewellery and accessories marketplace Boticca has revealed the spending habits of various nations on its site during the Olympic Games.

The study has revealed that Colombians spent the most money per transaction – about £450 – closely followed by Kuwait and Russia.


Boticca also found that men in Singapore were most generous when it came to shopping for women with the average transaction of £200.

Overall, Great Britain proved to be the biggest spenders when it came to necklaces, silver products and second for rings and bracelets beating America into second place.

The website revealed that the shock of the survey was that the United Arab Emirates ranked the lowest despite expectations that it might be one of the biggest spending countries.
