    @Floridagirl2010: Can you get the diamond insured prior to getting it set?

    Take it to a jewelry appraiser, get it insured, and then get it set.

    I would trust them. I think every jewellery store has that clause. I think its nice that they told you as well. i feel most would throw the clause at you AFTER it broke, if that should happen.

    Just get the diamond insured before you go! 🙂

    I would get it insured first.  Then have it reset there.  But I wouldn’t give it to anyone else without insuring the diamond first.

    I would. It sounds like she’s very knowledgeable and just wanted to make sure you understood the risks.

    I’d definitely trust someone who seemed straight-forward and tried to educate me as a customer rather than someone who just said “Oh sure, we can do it”.

    it sounds like you’ve done your research and there’s a risk if you take it to ANY jeweler.  at least this one was up front.

    An insurance rider probably would not cover this kind of thing, but I urge you to check with Jeweler’s Mutual to see if a seperate policy will cover it. They have really reasonable rates and policies that cover almost anything you can think of. I know you said you checked with the jeweler and your mom, but unless they are insurance agents who specialize in jewelry, then I’d look into that a little more.

    Like others have said, if you’re stone is uninsured then any jeweler you take it to will have the same policy (though many will not tell you upfront), so if you want the ring re-set, then I think you’re going to have to trust your jeweler. As long as you have no other reason to doubt this jeweler, then I wouldnt worry.

    @Floridagirl2010: Agreed, I know you don’t think insurance would cover it, but I would get more information from specific insurance places. Yes I would get it set their, it seems they were being responsible by giving you that information, and I think that sounds like standard practice. However agree with pp’s get it insured even if you don’t think it will cover this, you should have it insured because other things can happen to it other than cracking the stone, the insurance is really quite cheap.

    I think that based on their good reviews and being very upfront with you about risks, that I would trust them to do the job.

    I would.  She sounds confident about what she’s doing and pretty straightforward with you.
