Macro Monday: Rings

I got a text from a friend of mine yesterday, telling me that due to a jewelry store “mishap”, her beloved engagement ring was gone. GONE. She was heartbroken – and I’m sure I’d feel the same if it happened to me.
The store told her it’s only happened two times in twenty years.  And this time, it was to her.
Luckily her wedding band and promise ring made it back safely from repair, and thankfully her engagement ring was insured – But it was custom made, and obviously irreplaceable.

Her bad news prompted me to get in touch with my jeweler right away about having my rings appraised so that I can be sure that they’re properly insured – even though money doesn’t come close to sentimental value.

I wish I’d thought to take the time to offer to photograph her rings for her.  After all, rings are one of my favorite things to photograph, it would’ve been so easy. Hindsight. *sigh*

The ones below are mine. My engagement ring, my wedding band, and my anniversary/family ring. I love them all so much, and I feel naked if I ever leave the house without them on.

Is your jewellery properly insured & photographed in the event that something like this happens to you!? If not, are you going to look into it now?
