Our warranty wasn’t that great either. Do you have homeowners or renters insurance? We added my ring to our insurance with USAA and we just pay a little extra every month and my ring is completely covered from damage/loss/theft!

No problem, it was actually my man who thought of it, I didn’t even know it was possible. I just read another post about Michael Hill’s and they sound awful! I hope everything works out 🙂

Mine doesn’t have a warranty that I know of.  I bought insurance from Jeweler’s Mutual almost immediately after getting it.

Ditto on the insurance. 

In fact, no matter how great your warranty is through your jeweler, you should ALWAYS get your ring insured.  The jeweler warranty may cover breakage, but the insurance will cover everything (as long as you get a good policy) – theft, loss, breakage, etc…

A lot of companies don’t have lifetime warranties or they charge you a lot for them.  I agree that you should add it onto your homeowners insurance or renters insurance (we have USAA too).  That covers any breaking or losing diamonds or theft as long as you have the original receipt.

I haven’t heard of this designer before so I looked it up online.  It looks like a cool website, and beautiful rings….however, i noticed they spell jewelry wrong on the front page.  LOL

 

Just make sure you go through your home owners/rent insurance and you will be fine 🙂  I would also recommend taking the ring to a local jeweler one that you know and trust and have them do the fixing if something were to happen.  that way you would be able to trust them.

Ditto on the necessity of getting your ring insured separately from any warranties it may have.

Also, Michael Hill Jewellery is an Australian company, and as such they use British/Australian spelling. So “jewellery” is not spelled wrong, just spelled the Bristish/Australian way (they also use the “u” in “colour” and so forth).

You may be able to pay the jeweler to increase the warranty (thats what we did) or find another company (that has a better warranty) to reset the diamond
