Earlier this year, my best friend asked me to be his partner in life. I could not have been any more excited to say yes! Deets on the whole engagement story in this post. Now that the easy part (saying yes) has been done, now comes the hard part. Wedding planning aside (because, let’s be honest, we haven’t really done any yet), there are a handful of tangential things to take care of.
One big piece is insuring the bling. Jewelers Mutual Insurance Company has been exclusively insuring jewelry for more than 100 years and offers repair or replacement coverage that includes worldwide travel protection for all types of jewelry and watches. Coverage includes loss, theft, damage and mysterious disappearance (unexplained loss). With this ring being one of the largest purchases to date, and considering the amount of travel that I’ve been through this year (and plan to go next year), it doesn’t hurt to have peace of mind while on the road.

Although no real planning for the big day has happened yet, I would be lying if I said I haven’t started looking at wedding bands. They may or may not even be on my wishlist this year (never a bad idea to think ahead, right?). I keep looking at all the beautiful handmade pieces on Pinterest, or unique pieces through larger jewelers, to get a better idea of what I think I’ll want to pair my current engagement ring with.
Even though one may not make the cut this year, it’s always important to protect those special holiday gifts. Accidents can happen no matter how careful we are with our jewelry, that’s why there’s jewelry insurance.
If you’re looking to try your luck this season, Jewelers Mutual is hosting a Season to Sparkle Sweepstakes, where you can win up to $1000 in jewelry!
