THE FORGOTTEN STEP TO PLANNING THE PERFECT PROPOSAL
Because there are so many details that go into planning a proposal, it’s easy to forget a critical step – insuring the
ring! This is the very first step a future groom can take to guarantee the ring will always be a reminder of his love.
When should you insure the ring?
Applying directly after purchase is the most ideal time to get protection. Once it’s insured, you will feel confident
that the ring is ready to dazzle your future bride.
A marriage proposal can be a stressful event for a hopeful future groom, but ensuring the ring is kept safe until the
question is popped doesn't have to be. Here are five tips from Jewelers Mutual, provider of Perfect Circle® Jewelry
Insurance, on protecting your ring until the big day:
- Store the ring in a safe place. Storing the ring at the place of residence after purchase is not a safe option.
- Ensure she doesn't find it. Hiding the ring at home raises the potential that a future bride will discover it. Keeping the ring at a bank safety deposit box will prevent this from happening and also keep the ring safe from theft.
- Document it. Have you made a list of all of the things you will need for a proposal? Flowers, music, location? Don't forget to also keep an accurate appraisal of the ring. Make two copies and store one separate from your jewelry. Also include a photo or video of the ring.
- Keep it with you and don't leave it unattended in a car or suitcase. If traveling to a special destination for
a proposal when you arrive at a hotel or restaurant, don't hand your jewelry bag to a hotel or restaurant
staff. Carry it personally.
- Insure it. Perfect Circle® Jewelry Insurance from Jewelers Mutual Insurance Company provides personal
jewelry protection against loss, damage, theft and mysterious disappearance wherever your travels take
you, worldwide. So get the right insurance then relax and wait for the “Yes!” you are expecting.

Each appraisal includes a detailed description of your diamond, gemstone or jewelry item. Factors such as weight, shape, and measurements all combine to determine color and clarity and then the value for each item.
Retail Replacement Value.
Retail Replacement Value is the price to replace the item if lost, stolen or destroyed at the current market values. These values are assigned only after the research of national, regional and local jewelry markets.
Why is a Peter & Co. Jewelers appraisal unique?
The Gemological Institute of America provides criteria for all appraisals. All inclusions are plotted, along with a photo of your item. Additionally, Peter & Co. Jewelers provides a photo of the inside of your Diamond or Gemstone. Consider that in the event of a burglary or robbery, your jewelry cannot be identified without proper photo identification. Our appraisals are performed by a Graduate Gemologist, Gemological Institute of America who is also a member of The National Association of Jewelry Appraisers.
This appraisal is submitted to your insurance company to place coverage on an item of jewelry in case of loss, theft or damage. This is also called "scheduling" the jewelry. The value is described as the cost to replace the item with one of like, kind and quality. The values represent the current retail replacement from an average jewelry store, not any one in particular, exceptions being pieces that are signed. Examples of signed pieces are those by noted designers like Tiffany, Cartier, and David Yurman. These pieces are researched with the company.

Every few years your pearls should be cleaned and re-strung. Pearls are delicate by nature. They should be the last thing you put on, after the hairspray and perfumes. These are irritants to the pearl and can eat at the lacquer of the pearl. Pearls cannot be cleaned in your normal jewelry cleaner. During a re-stringing job, all pearls are hand washed and then strung onto the finest silk cord.
If you would like an independent opinion on your diamond or gemstone, we can have it graded by a reputable laboratory (i.e. Gemological Institute of America Gem Trade Laboratory). We’ll make sure it gets there safely, and explain what the report says when it comes back.”
