Recently engaged? Congrats! You’re probably spending a lot of time staring at your newest piece of jewelry – your engagement ring – and for good reason. It’s a pretty precious gift, something you’ll want to take good care of for the rest of your life. And the best way to do that is that to make sure you get your ring insured. Like, right now. We talked to Patrick Drummond, VP of Sales & Marketing at Jeweler’s Mutual Insurance to find out some expert tips about getting your ring insured and protected.
When should a couple start thinking about insurance?
Considering that at this point in a bride’s life, an engagement ring is likely her second-most valuable possession (behind her car), ring insurance is extremely important. Not only are engagement and wedding rings often costly, they are sentimentally priceless, making personal jewelry insurance even more important. No matter how careful you are, jewelry can be lost or damaged. Ideally, a newly engaged couple should obtain engagement or wedding ring insurance at the time they purchase the rings, but if a ring is uninsured or under-insured it’s never too late to get a policy.

How can a “ring giver” get an idea of the type and style the recipient would like without directly asking?
Chances are if the “ring giver” really listens to his girlfriend, she’s already given him some hints. Did she comment on a friend’s engagement ring? Mention what she liked about it? That’s important information that could lead him to her dream ring.
Another way to get an idea of the type and style ring she might like is to start looking at ads in magazines, and see which ones she gravitates to. Or, go onto a website where you can design your own engagement ring and look at styles that might be similar to other rings she owns and wears.
Perhaps the easiest way is to use what you love best about her personality. If she has a simple personality, she will probably enjoy a traditional solitaire ring. And if you’re girl is flashy, you might want to look at halo settings or side stone accents for that little added bling.
