I am teaming up with Jewelers Mutual today to share why after getting engaged the first thing you should do is purchase jewelry insurance. Getting engaged is one of the most magical times in your life. Not only do you get to spend forever with your person but you suddenly have some really exciting new bling! Wedding planning can quickly sweep you off our feet but it’s important to get your ring covered before anything unexpected happens. Take my friend Darcy for example. Her engagement story is beyond magical but almost ended in disaster had she not had insurance. Darcy and her boyfriend of two years went on a trip to Nantucket. One evening the two set out for a picnic by the Brant Point Lighthouse. Unbeknownst to Darcy this picnic is where her boyfriend planned to propose. Everything went as expected and the two enjoyed a lovely evening happily celebrating.
Darcy was excited to show her new ring off to family and friends upon their arrival home but while traveling home a few days later Darcy was in the airport and realized that one of the small stones in her engagement ring had popped out. Luckily her new fiancée had already purchased jewelry insurance and the repair was completely covered. But could you imagine the stress had it not been? In day-to-day life it’s easy to damage your ring. Whether you hit the diamond on the side of a table or a prong comes loose. Having jewelry insurance gives you the assurance that you can live life, without worrying about damaging your ring! Founded in 1913 Jewelers Mutual is the expert in Jewelry Insurance.

You know the most common place bride’s lose their engagement rings? While trying on wedding gowns! Take my friend Annie for example. The first thing she did after getting engaged was to go gown shopping (of course) but in her excitement she didn’t insure her ring before. During the frenzy of trying on gowns her ring slipped off and was lost. Often your new engagement ring needs to be sized and if you’re wearing a ring around that’s too big, well that’s an easy way to loose it! But if your ring is insured with Jewelers Mutual there’s no need to worry, as they will cover the loss no matter if it occurs in a bridal salon or years later down the disposal. In my mind, getting jewelry insurance is a no-brainer. Engagement rings are sentimental and loss, theft, and damage can happen to anyone. Wear your jewelry worry-free when you’re protected by America’s oldest jewelry insurance with Jewelers Mutual.
