How long have you had your ring? Since February, so eight months.

How many times have you needed to use any part of your warranty? Twice, both times to get it resized.

If you feel comfortable with answering this, how much was your ring? $826 before tax/warranty.

How much was the warranty? $114, I think?

We paid 2500 for the ring and it comes with a free warranty so long as you get an inspection every 6 months.  We’ve taken it in 2 times in the year I’ve had it for a loose stone to get prongs tightened.

I also have ring insurance though State Farm.  It’s super cheap, like a couple bucks a month.  Way cheaper than spending 1500 on a lost diamond!

My fiance bought a new ring, I guess he didnt think about a used ring although if he had seen one her loved he prob would have bought it. My ring was $7200 retail, i’ve had it for 2 1/2 years and havent had to use the warranty for it. But used rings are fine as long as the shank is sturdy and the setting for the stone isn’t worn down. I work at a jewellery shop that sells  second hand jewels and most of them are under 5 years old any way.

I have had my ring(s) for five years, in that time I have used the warranty four times, twice for new heads that either got twisted or outright broken, another time to have the rings fused free of charge, and a final time to have them sized which was also free of charge.  All said and done my ring(s) cost $3,500, warranty included in the price.  Totally worth it if you ask me.

@BushelAndAPeck:  Down both times. I was wrong about my ring size, but was so sure that’s what it was. Turns out I was a whole size off, haha. In order to keep my warranty, my ring has to be inspected every 6 months. They send it in, inspect it the stones and prongs, redip it, and clean it.

I also have insurance through The Perfect Circle. We pay their minimum of $25/year for it, plus an appraisal fee from a local jeweler ($84).

I’ve had my ring for 5 months. The warranty did not cost anything, it was included. I haven’t put it in for anything yet, thankfully because I had it for only 5 months, lol. The ring cost a little over $7500.

@BushelAndAPeck:  

I’ve only had mine a month.

Haven’t used the warranty

Ring cost was about $6000.

Warranty was included and covers resizing for life, lost stones for life, other damage for life.  No required “checkups.”
