We were robbed once too and they took all my jewelery at home worth about 7k.  And since they were individual pieces that were only 500-1500/piece, I never thought to insure it.  My e-ring, which I always have on and never leave at home was insured anyways though.  Standard policy only covers up to 1-2k depending on your policy, and unfortunately, there is just nothing you can do about it.  I tried.  Personally, if my e-ring was stolen and uninsured, I’d say screw it and just get a moissanite.  I could easily replace my e-ring at cost if needed, but there’s no way I’d drop over 10k on a piece of jewlery again.  It was a once in a lifetime purchase.

oh my! so sorry….Now you’re making me even more paranoid. Let’s see…I know this is meangingless at the moment but none of you are harmed. That’s priority. You’re doing the right thing scouring online and reaching out to pawn shops. Is the diamond certed by GIA? If so, they lase inscribe so be sure to include the lab report # to whom ever you reach out to. Good luck. again, sorry.

Cachan:  How upsetting and violating. I’m so sorry this happened 🙁  Your ring is gorgeous…I really hope it turns up somewhere or that you eventually find a replacement that you love just as much.

I’m so, so sorry this happened to you.  I would be devastated too.  At least you were not hurt- that’s the important thing.  I hope your ring makes its way back to you… keep looking at pawn shops, Craigslist, etc, in hopes that it comes up.  I’m sending hugs your way!

Cachan:  wow that sucks…sorry to hear. it’s weird how they wont cover more then that…I believe our homeowners insurance covers it all,…as long as it was stolen during a house breakin.

Cachan:  I am so sorry to hear this! Our home was broken into last week and the only thing they took was jewelry. That included our wedding bands, diamond earrings, watches, and my grandmother’s class ring and wedding band. We have only been engaged a month and I’ve never gotten the chance to wear my bands as his wife. That cut deeply. But, what hurt the most was the loss of my grandmother jewelry. Although she owned a nightclub in the 60’s and 70’s (which is still standing) and a few rental properties, she went back to highschool at the wise age of 55 and was so proud of that accomplishment. I wore that ring whenever I had a large presentation or important meeting to give me the confidence and determination that it took for her to get her diploma. I also cherished her simple gold band that I’d planned to wear on my right hand as my ‘something old’ on my wedding day.  She passed away a few years ago and handed me her jewelry to keep safe a few days before she died. I get really emotional about that.

Anyway, I sent pictures of the stolen jewelry to the burglary and theft dept with our police department to attach to the incident report. They sent those pictures to a database that pawn shops across the country use. We have also started going to local pawnshops to see if the jewelry has made its way there. Luckily we got a rider on the wedding bands, but the deductible for the house far outweighed the loss of the other jewelry so I just have to eat that. I refuse to let those thieves control my destiny so we went back to my jeweler yesterday to order new bands. One thing I know is that they won’t be blessed for stealing and karma is a biyatch. And, if they decide to come back they will be on camera and may even get a bullet in their arses…. 

I wish u all the best!
