AW: 5th monthiversary = ring upgrade?!?!

Well..sort of...

Our insurance claim has been finalized...after 4 months of looking, our jeweler finally found an approriate stone to replace my chipped one (the center one)...(it was chipped under the prong sometime between the week we left for our wedding and the month after we returned home...our jeweler caught it when my DH took our rings into be cleaned).

In the process I got an upgrade...the new stone is 0.20 carats larger than the original and the color is one grade better. So we also increased the value of the ring 33%...
WOO HOO!

Best of all, I can wear my ring withour worries of losing the stone (the other one was chipped under the prong and loose)...today is 5 months since our wedding day...so this is an awesome way to celebrate. We went out for Hawaiian food last night (at The Hukilau here in San Jose) and then to see "Juno"...

Just had to share! YAY!

I highly recommend that all couples go ahead and spring for insurance on the e-ring and wedding bands. For what it costs, it can surely save you a lot if/when you damage or lose the rings. I am so happy that we did it...and the company we went with (Safeco) has no deductible, so it didn't cost us anymore than the premium (which was like $100/yr to cover my ring)to get the stone replaced.

Our awesome jeweler says that in cases like these she always tries to get an "upgrade" for the customer...since it can be traumatic. I'll admit, at first I didn't like the new stone (even though overall it's "better" than the original)because I was sentimentally attached to the other one (hey! I drove a 17 year old car for the same reason)...but it has grown on me and I am happy with it now. I told DH no more "upgrades" for at least 25 years! I will take some diamond stud earrings though! LOL!

So...get thee some jewelry insurance if you haven't done so already. We just added it onto our renter's policy, which also covers my business.

Yeausc1--I highly recommend it...especially if the cost of replacing your ring would be expensive (say $2K+)...
