Whether you’re wearing a certain brand, building a house or even paying for a monthly gym membership, you’re making a statement. Everyone makes statements -- it’s how we spend our money and how we express and define ourselves.

Today, more than any other group, millennials are leading the trend in statement-making.

This highly image-conscious group is known for dropping big bucks on everything from designers to academics to charity causes.

Millennials donate on average $481 to charities every year. Millennials even spent $26 billion on diamond jewelry in 2015.
