    No....it wasn't insured. I was going to call them today and have it added to our insurance. As soon as I got to work and posted my bad news on here....I made copies of the police report and pictures of the ring and will be taking them to pawn shops after work. Bad thing about Atlanta is...pawn shops are like McDonalds....They are EVERYWHERE!

    Oh yeah....I keep forgeting to post that we are okay....just having to cancel credit cards and bank accounts.

          What a terrible story - I am so sad that you are going through this - I agree with the previous posts, don't replace it with anything but what you really really want.

          Is that in the proverbial cards?

              My heart goes out to you!

              My Tacori engagement ring was stolen as well ... and despite a police report, monetary reward, and countless scouring of pawn shops ... I never had it returned.

              My DH (FI at the time) was in Iraq when it happened ... and so in order to have SOMETHING on my finger ... I went to Cubic Zirconia Jewelry, Silver CZ Jewelry, Imitation Jewelry, Discount Cubic Zirconia Rings. and found a similar Tacori knock-off for about $60 to wear.

              Then, we decided on very unique wedding bands, which wouldn't go with an e-ring, so now I am just wearing my wedding band and DH plans to get me another diamond to wear as a right-hand ring for an anniversary gift.

              I know EXACTLY how you feel. It is a gut-wrenching, heart-breaking feeling. I cried and cried for days. And I know better than anyone that NOTHING can replace the exact ring that your FI gave to you.

              But, you do have options. Like I said, I decided to save money and get a knock-off Tacori to make my finger not feel so bare - since I knew nothing would truly replace my e-ring.

              Good luck to you!

                Sorry to hear that. That really sucks. I know it's a long shot, but also try calling the pawn shops and then ask if you can email or fax a pic? Maybe someone that works there will have access to email or they may even have a fax machine. You'll be able to get the pic out to as many places...Being robbed totally sucks. Glad your ok.

                  I don't know if there is a knock off of my ring. It was so different...that's why we went with THAT one. We had such a hard time deciding on which ring to go with and when we finally agreed on one it was like "ahhhhh....finally." I think we are just gonna wait...see what happens. It just feels like somebody ripped my heart out of my chest and stompped on it. I know you know what I'm talking about!

                      No, the one I got wasn't an exact replica either. I've never seen one exactly like mine - but the one I got was as close as I could find, so it worked. DH and I knew the difference, but no one else would have b/c no one else scrutizes your e-ring as closely as you do.

                      I don't want to be Debbie Downer - but don't get your hopes up about finding it. Greenville, SC is much smaller than ATL and I wasn't robbed at random, it was stolen from the tanning salon .. and mine never did turn up. I only say that to help you "move on" faster ... because the anger and sadness can consume you for a while.
