I don’t feel uncomfortable at all.

It took some getting used to but it doesn’t really cross my mind anymore. As long as its insured it can be replaced.

Yeah, I don’t either.  I worried about it a bit when I first got my rings, but no more.  I think – like everything – you just get used to it.

It doesn’t really cross my mind, but maybe having insurance on your rings would ease your mind?

I still think about the total cost of my bridal set when I look at it sometimes. It boggles my mind, but Darling Husband had picked out my e-ring on his own and it is exactly what I always wanted. He then insisted that I get the matching wedding band and surprised me with a second one to “even” out my halo e-ring. After I think about all the effort that went behind finding the perfect ring and how much they reminded him of me, I no longer uncomfortable with the price.

I don’t really worry about it, but I’m also putting my e-ring on my insurance policy just in case. Our home insurance as it is only covers $5000 on jewelry should anything happen.

I don’t really worry about it. I was a little bit nervous in the month or so before I got it insured, but now that it’s taken care of, I at least know that if something happens it won’t be a financial loss.

I don’t at all b/c my rings were not expensive since they were familiy rings.  The total amount, on average, that I wear on my wedding hand is about $4500.  I wear my mom’s diamond on my right hand (my dad died) and a wedding band I bought on rubylane for $100 to just give it an extra sparkle but I don’t think it’s worth more than $1000, maybe even $500.  I think I would though if I were wearing rings that were worth more but probably, after awhile, wouldn’t even think twice!  🙂

I was nervous at first. I thought I was loosing the diamond all the time, I kept checking it with my thumb to make sure it was still there.

Now that I’ve had it for almost a year, I don’t do it as much. Only when I bang it on something or get done doing something with my hands, like moving boxes.

I would feel less bad about the monetary value of replacing it (it’s insured) and worse about how bad I’d feel that I lost something that my Darling Husband worked so hard to get for me.

I couldn’t handle it. I originally had my grandmother’s almost 2ct emerald diamond and I couldn’t shake the feeling of losing the only family heirloom or damaging it and it was worth so much money, I couldn’t get over it.

My Fiance replaced it with a moissanite 3 stone and I feel much better now. I tried but even after a few months I was always leaving my ring at home because it made me so agitated.

I feel pretty safe…and I wear my ring in some fairly unsafe areas in NYC (I’m a social worker). I’m just careful and make sure to turn it around so the stone faces my palm if I feel uncomfortable. But I would never trade my ring for anything else 🙂

If you get insurance, don’t worry!  Spend what you are comfortable spending.  If it gets lost or stolen, the insurance will replace it.
