Fiance and i went to Tiffany today to try on different wedding rings. I fell in love with their Novo Ring and my e-ring is from Tiffany too, they look beautiful together!
But I´m a bit concerned that i might feel uncomfortable wearing jewelry that has a higher value than my car, every day, wherever i go. I am still afraid of losing or damaging my e-ring, and i don´t know if will ever get used to it.
It´s a lifetime decision and i would love to hear your opinions. How do you feel wearing expensive jewelry daily?

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.

Thanks for your answers!
I didn´t think of insurance at all, that is a very good idea!
Fiance is working really hard and has secretly saved money all year to buy rings we love. And with regard to our wedding the rings are the only important thing to him, he doesn´t take interest in everything else, besides getting married to me of course 😉
So i guess i will have to make this terrible sacrifice of wearing a diamond ring :))

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.
