Ring insurance?

Recommended Posts

We've been really bad about getting insurance for my ring... (especially since it's a little big... I know BAD, but I'm dropping it off tonight to get it resized) but now that we're looking into it we're a little unsure of where do go. Does it fall under Joe's homeowner insurance? Or would it go under my renters insurance? Who's ring is it technically? Joe's since he bought it? Or mine since I wear it?

 

I'm confused. Anyone know?

We have ours covered under our renters insurance. When you get married will you both be joining Joe's plan? I would just call your ins. companies and see what they each say about it - and if they both offer to cover it then see who will give you a better rate!

What I was told by my insurance agent is that if you have separate policies, it's whomever you want to be able to claim it! So, we just put it under my homeowner's policy. We just added our wedding bands a couple weeks ago, same story...

I'll only have my renters insurance for another 3 months, then we're moving in together... so it would probably make more sense to put it under Joe's insurance.

That's why we chose my homeowner's insurance- it was the policy we were going to keep, so it just seemed easier.

 

Now get that ring insured girl!

You can put it on your homeowner's or renter's insurance or you can get your ring its own insurance policy. Our ring policy has a much lower deductible than the home policy, and the ring is covered under almost any circumstances including plain old lost it! The only thing it won't cover is loss due to flooding but instead of reporting it lost due to flooding, you could say you went swimming and lost it. I'm sure any insurance agent will be more than happy to advise you on which policy is better.

It needs to be insured, ASAP! Murphy's law! But, with that said, my BF and I just talked with our insurance agent about the issue. They offer coverage for around $10 per $1,000. That's pretty typical. However, my sister (gemologist) said that her jewelry shop offers insurance for only $5 per $1000 and it's more comprehensive. PLUS, if you do have to file a claim, it won't affect your homeowners insurance and make your rate go up.

Good to know! I'm dropping it off to get it resized tonight so I'll ask them about it.

Thanks for all of your help ladies!!

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
