For domestic shipping, UPS has better rates.  With insurance and signature confirmation, you should be fine.  Insure for the value you paid for the ring and confirm when the jeweler receives it.

@RunnerBride13:  If you have insurance on the ring, that’s great.  But if you get the package insured, then you’re doubly protected.  hypothetically, if something happened to the package, courier (UPS, FEDEX) would have to compensate you the insured value.  It can’t hurt to have extra protection and it doesn’t cost much more.  And who knows, your insurance company might question why you didn’t insure the package in the first place, if something were to happen.  better safe than sorry, right?

I’m in the jewelry business and we do most of our shipping through FedEx. Just make sure you double box it.

@RunnerBride13:  I’m in the jewelry industry also. I too work with & recommend FedEx and like they said, double box it! I’d put it inside a small envelope or something & stick it inside FedEx’s little bags that you can peel & stick to the inside of the first box. I’d also get signature confirmation as well and as you said, insure it. I’ve seen too many things, no matter the carrier, that get big holes punched in the side of a box so you definitely want anything valuable double boxed & also not loosely floating around in there.
