I’d be really upset… even more so if it wasn’t insured.

Why not insure your ring?  Jewelry insurance is ridiculously cheap!  And lots of times it can be covered under your renters or home insurance anyway.

Like the OP, I would intially be really upset if i lost my e-ring, but would then realize that, in the grand scheme of things, it isn’t nearly as important as having my Fiance and that it can be replaced!  That’s what insurance is for!

Both my wife and I would have a hard time with it if I lost my ring, even though the cost of replacing it would be small.  It was my wife’s grandmother’s, and that sentimental connection is irreplaceable.  However, this is something that insurance would not help with.

I would definitely be upset, and I would feel awful. Even though we’ve talked about upgrading in 5-10 years, it’s the ring he proposed with and it’s absolutely the perfect ring for me/us right now.

I would be very upset, but life goes on. In the end, it is a “thing” and not a life.

As far as the insurance thing goes, we did get my ring insured, through Jeweler’s Mutual it is less than $45 a year for $0 deductible on a $4000 ring.

I would advise you to rethink your insurance approach. If something catastrophic happened, you’d be amazed how fast it adds up to replace a bunch of stuff even if it is “cheap”.
My parents had their house flood in December due to a broken water pipe (and they are still working on getting their house fixed) and it is just incredible how much was either damaged or totally destroyed. Luckily they had added extra insurance for things above and beyond their regular homeowners insurance, but it’s still been a bit of a financial blow in addition to an emotional one. I cannot even imagine how much worse it would have been if they didn’t have insurance on the “small stuff”.

I’d be super sad because I know my Fiance would be like “HOW did you lose it?!” Plus he picked it out so I’m kind of sentimental about it. I’m already bummed I’m going to have to get it reset but it’s the only way I’ll have a wedding set I like (I’m actually thinking having the band from my e-ring completed and using it as my wedding band).

I try to only put it in one spot in my bathroom when I take it off…or actually when I put lotion on I put it on one of my toes (because there’s no way I’ll forget it then). But it is insured so besides the disappointment it’s not like we couldn’t replace it.

I would be very upset, not only because of the sentimental value, but also because it’s an Art Deco estate piece; there aren’t any others like it, so I couldn’t just go get the same one from a store. 

I definitely have it insured!

I would be super upset!! We picked out my ring together, we had it made just the way we wanted it!  Not only would I be upset bc its the ring Fiance proposed with, but my ring wasn’t cheap!  Fiance worked hard to pay for my ring and I feel like it is apart of me now!  I feel lost when I don’t have it on!  I would be sooo sad!  Luckily we have it insured, so that makes me feel a little better!

I would be sooooo sad if I lost my ring! My Fiance picked it out himself and he loves it! It’s a 1930’s estate ring so it’s a one of a kind and we would probably never be able to find one like it again, and he went back to the jewelry store like 10 times and everytime he was in there he always picked out my ring no matter where in the case they had moved it (it was like an inside joke between him and the guys at the store) So I would be very very very sad if I lost my ring! We both love my ring so much that we decided for me to get two semi-eternity bands for my bands so that I can just wear them and leave my e-ring in a safe place if we go places that I would worry about losing my e-ring (we go white water rafting every year, camping trips, etc…..)

Mine is insured so I wouldn’t be at all concerned about the money… but I would still be super bummed. I am a bit sentimental and I’d like to keep THE ring he proposed with. THE ring i’ve worn every day for x years, months, days. So yea I would be pretty upset about it. But then I’d get a new one and get over it (mostly) eventually I’m sure.

But really, my ring is replaceable and it would give Mr. a chance to propose again (without me having stomach virus), but I’d be a little put out anyway.

Mine is insured under our home owners insurance and yes I would be super bummed for a long time but things happen and I rather have my hubs. I think I would be more sick about losing something that cost as much as it did and probably would always have a fear afterwards even with a new ring.
