        My ring is insured through Allstate as well. We recieved a discount for insuring the car, the apartment and the ring all through the same compnay. I think we pay an extra $3 or $4 a month for the ring insurance.

          Also ask your insurance agent questions about what is covered and what is not. Some will only cover the ring if its lost in the home or have other stipulations. I actually added it as "scheduled" item and this covers the entire ring no matter where its lost or stolen. It costs a bit more, but you never know when things can happen.

            I finally got insurance for my e-ring! I can't believe I've waited this long. Anyway I bought it from Jewelers Mutual - I like the idea of a company that specializes and has no deductible. Anyway, for those of you who haven't done this yet - just a friendly reminder!

              We haven't had to file a claim for it - thank god!! But basically I think the standard rule is to have it on your homeowners/renters ins. You may even want to just go through your current policy to see what they cover, any stipulations, deductibles etc. Then see if you want to change to a different/better plan?
              My friends husband got hers under USAA (hes Navy too). He also has his credit cards insured as well. One day they lost about 700 us dollars worth of stuff on the train and all he had to do was call the up and they cut the check the next day!
              My ring is going to be under my FI's home owners insurance in the US. State Farm or something.

BAD idea) anyway, one of our friends has had his diamond fall out 3 times, and every single time they replace it with practically NO questions asked and his rate has never increased.
                I checked this place out. Their rates start at $50 per year for a $5000 ring. It varies on where you live. You can also make it cheaper by having a deductable.

                My friend who is visting has a beautiful royal ascher ring. I love her ring. We were talking about insurance & she said she was told it was so expensive that in a few years you had spent as much as the ring costs. I guess the person who told her that had gotten a bad quote.

                  FI just added my e-ring onto the homeowner's insurance.

Also, has anyone had to file a claim? What questions did they ask and were they able to replace your ring? All advice would be appreciated!
                    We plan to meet with our insurance company next week. Great info!!
