    Diamond Ring warranty?

    Just wondering if anyone has any insight into purchasing the ring "warranty" that jewelers offer. I don't remember the exact details, however the jeweler is Greenberg's. It costs around 170..(all purchases come with the standard warranty). I believe most jewelers offer something similar.

    And another question, would you get a separate policy on a 5000$ ring? Or would you place it under your general property insurance?

    Any help is appreciated!

    Re: Diamond Ring warranty?

    Not sure I'm reading right - so you're getting a standard warranty and they are offering additional protection for $170?

    Get the ring appraised independently and use that to get a rider for your insurance. It should be less than $100 a year.

    Most warranties are built for their profit. As far as insurance, we added it on to our homeowner's insurance.

    extended warranties are almost always not worth it.

    Re: Diamond Ring warranty?

    Wife has a ring valued at $11,000. Got an inland marine insurance policy for it that costs all of $100/yr.

    I'd get a separate policy and screw the so called warranty.

    Re: Diamond Ring warranty?

    If you are buying something from a jeweler you shouldn't need a warranty on it else you aren't buying very good quality. You do need to put it on your home or renters insurance though in case it is lost or stolen.

    Add to homeowners/renters insurance policy if you're worried about it. Don't pay for a warranty they're just a scam to pull extra money from you upfront.

    Reading it, it looks like you have to make sure to go there every 6 months for cleaning and inspection as well.

    Re: Diamond Ring warranty?

    Is the warranty on the ring, or the marriage?

    Because $170 is a drop in the bucket compared to what it would cost you out of pocket.........or so I hear.

    You do get free ring cleanings.

    Wife and I did the exact same thing, for the exact same cost from State Farm.
