Jewellery Insurance Essentials: Protecting Your Prized Engagement Ring

Whether you are planning on proposing or you’ve just accepted an engagement ring, the question that comes to mind is how to ensure that this stunning, symbolic, and rather expensive piece of jewelry is protected from all kinds of harm. Jewellery insurance is something that your salesperson will offer, so when you are wondering if it’s worth the extra pennies, we’ve put together a full guide so you can not only decide if insurance is for you but which plan is best suited for your lifestyle.

Jewellery insurance isn’t for everyone; the only times I’ve gone with the insurance option are when I’ve spent a lot of money at once on something, the insurance itself is extremely affordable, and it’s a one-time purchase. This might be different for everyone else, but if you are considering insuring your prized engagement, we’ve put together a comprehensive guide.

Learn more about what it is and why you need it.

How can I insure my engagement ring?

There are many ways you can insure your engagement ring, and if you are anything, I want to know all the options I have available so I know I am making the right choice moving forward.

You can check if your engagement ring is already insured under your home insurance. If not, this is a simple fix. You can call up your provider and ask to add it to your policy for an extra monthly fee.

Through the jeweler itself, if you have not yet selected the engagement ring, it might be best to ask the company you are buying it from if they offer any insurance policies or if, in fact, they would recommend a private company. This could include some perks, such as regular cleanings and other little perks that might not come with adding it to your home insurance.

There is a standalone engagement ring insurance policy. This could be suitable if your ring is particularly valuable or you want a broader protection policy in place. You will need to factor this in, as this is an expensive policy.

If you are still wondering which policy might work, you can get the engagement ring appraised by a professional. They will give a full rundown of what should and shouldn’t be included in your policy.

Do I need jewelry insurance?

If you are wondering if you need to insure your jewelry, there might be some factors you should consider.

What are the risks?

While usually, you should never take your engagement ring off, it’s not always the case for some people, and their jobs will require them to take them off. This leaves a huge risk of misplacing them or being stolen. This is something that is a strong factor indicating insurance is the best route. Rings, in general, are small, and once misplaced, it can take a very long time to find them. You never know if they’ve rolled under something or in a jeans pocket.

On the subject of theft, this is very common. Whether your home is burgled or you’ve been stopped by a stranger in the street, they tend to go for the jewelry first, and as sad as it is, it happens more often than not. No matter how nice the area you live in, it’s always a risk factor, and if you’ve already spent a lot of money, it’s always better to be safe than sorry.

How Much Did You Spend?

Not everyone needs the big ring or might have the means to afford it for an engagement ring. It’s all symbolic; at the end of the day, if you don’t think it needs insurance, then that is your prerogative. If, on the other hand, you have the means to buy an expensive ring, you should always put some extra change away for some insurance. This will make you feel more secure but it is also the most sensible option when all that money is invested in one product, especially if you know your finances might have to take it off.

How much does jewelry insurance cost?

This is extremely dependent on the cost of the ring and also on what type of insurance policy you have. The most affordable option could be getting it added on top of your home insurance.

What Does It Cover?

Engagement cover usually includes theft, loss, and damage. You could find an insurance provider that could offer all three, or maybe you want one to be covered. This is all dependent on what works best for you.

Final Thoughts

When it comes to insurance coverage, you should always do your research. You never know what could happen but also make sure you are careful with the whole buying process. I would always recommend that you buy your expensive pieces in-store; it cuts out a lot of the online scams. Although investment fraud lawyers are available for these online purchases at great scales, it’s always best to take that extra step in the world of security.

Anticipation builds for Asia’s biggest mid-year fine jewellery sourcing event

Jewellery & Gem ASIA Hong Kong gains traction with extensive resource offerings and curated collections

Jewellery & Gem ASIA Hong Kong (JGA) continues to gain momentum, with major fine jewellery manufacturers and gemstone suppliers confirming their participation in the industry’s biggest mid-year B2B sourcing event in Asia, show organiser Informa Markets Jewellery announced.

Exhibitor bookings are building up and trade buyer inquiries are streaming in as the global jewellery industry prepares to meet at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC) from June 20 to 23 June. JGA is anticipated to host 1,700+ exhibitors from 30+ countries and regions, occupying 30+ pavilions under the group, product and themed categories. The latter comprises two distinct sections: the CORE Pavilion, which showcases leading jewellers from Hong Kong, and the Fine Design/Fine Gem Pavilion.

In an ever-changing business landscape, our community stays nimble, consistently adjusting to challenges and embracing opportunities for growth,” said David Bondi, Senior Vice President of Informa Markets in Asia. “That’s precisely why it’s important to have a physical presence in live events like JGA. Nothing compares to being right where the action is. The timing, scale and calibre of attendees at the fair are too valuable to overlook.”

New Releases

JGA will present a comprehensive collection of finished jewellery and loose precious materials, including diamonds, coloured gemstones and pearls. The exhibition also has dedicated sections for jewellery-related equipment, packaging products and technology solutions.

JGA is the place where industry professionals can make new business connections and explore valuable market resources. I strongly advise the buying community to plan ahead for JGA, since this will enhance their chances of having a successful visit,” said Celine Lau, Director of Jewellery Fairs at Informa Markets Jewellery.

Reinforcing this point is the wide variety of exciting products that is making its way to JGA this June. Here are some of the collections that buyers cannot miss:

Diamonds

Established in India in 1994, Kapu Gems Limited is one of the leading manufacturers of large-sized fine diamonds. Its operation revolves around the manufacturing of loose stones in various grades, which are sourced in accordance with the provisions of the Kimberley Process Certification Scheme for rough diamonds, according to the company. At JGA, Kapu Gems is unveiling fancy-shaped goods and round brilliants.

Passion Art Jewelry (HK) Ltd’s distinct approach to fine diamond jewellery design is likely to leave a lasting impression on buyers. One of its new collections is the “Mariposa” (butterfly) diamond necklace, featuring petals set with diamonds and in plain gold with a shiny finish.

Coloured Gemstones

A showcase of coloured gemstone finds, including layouts and contemporary jewellery collections, also awaits buyers at JGA. Among these exhibits are Claudia Hamann Edelstein GmbH’s Colombian emeralds, Burmese rubies, sapphires from Thailand and Sri Lanka, and fine gemstones from Africa. Founded in 1990 in Hamburg, Germany, Claudia Hamann Edelstein is tapping into its significant stock of high-quality gemstones to offer customers various options in terms of colour, size and shape, as well as multiple selections of pairs, sets and calibrated series.

Established in 1968, the Tokyo-based company specialises in Akoya, South Sea and Tahitian pearl jewellery. One of its latest designs is the “Utopia” necklace in 18-karat gold, featuring a combination of Akoya and South Sea pearls. This piece offers three different styling options: It can be worn either as a 40- or 60cm strand individually or combined to create a longer necklace.

The Arinis by Elka Watch Co. is up!

Independent watchmaking First lake diving watch:
The Arinis by Elka Watch Co. is up!

Like treasure raised to the surface, the Arinis is a diver’s watch whose quintessential aesthetic enhances the historic waters of Lake Neuchâtel. A Tool Watch tested by a scientist, ready to conquer the heights of global elegance.

Source: Elka Watch Co.

Elka Watch Co’s Arinis is the only timepiece on the market entirely dedicated to a lacustrine universe, Switzerland’s largest lake, Lake of Neuchâtel. Available in four versions, this 200-meter (656-foot) water-resistant watch aspires to see the sea while breathing in the subaquatic authenticity of one of Switzerland’s finest watchmaking regions. Powered by an automatic mechanical caliber from Manufacture Lajoux-Perret in La Chaux-de-Fonds, the new Arinis is a Swiss-made concentrate of coherence and craftsmanship.

Civilizational depths, Palafittes

Full of depth, this screw-crown diver’s watch with its “chevé box” sapphire crystal is charged with meaning. Starting with its baptismal name, Arinis, which until the 13th century AD was the ancient name of St. Blaise, a nearby region of Neuchâtel. A cradle of civilization bordered by vineyards that, even in the depths of the mysterious, sweet waters of the lake, is populated by Palafittes, vestiges of
past times that predate the traces of the Celts who later inhabited the area.

Seventy Paleolithic sites have been identified on the Neuchâtel coast alone, which is home to 123 different Neolithic and Bronze Age villages,” explains Hakim El Kadiri, the brand’s custodian, founded in 1877 in Amsterdam from the acronym of a Dutch retailer, Eduard Louis Kiek of Amsterdam. 111 of them have been inscribed on the Unesco World Heritage List since 2011, including 22 in the Three-Lakes region.

On the wrist of a diving scientist

For over 20 years, Hakim El Kadiri, nicknamed “Elka,” has been signing legendary models for other prestigious watch brands. In 2024, he placed the first Arinis prototype, a case inspired by an iconic model, on the wrist of a distinguished diver: the scientist Fabien Langenegger, a researcher involved in archaeological studies at these sites. “For 150 years, this type of archaeological research has provided a reference for the understanding of European prehistory,” adds the man who is reviving Elka Watch Co, a prestigious Swiss historical brand that will celebrate its 150th anniversary in 2027.

Certified waterproofing

And since perfection lies in detail, it also appears in the Arinis diver’s watch from Elka Watch Co, mounted on various straps, including the delightful Tropic vulcanized rubber, a local historical nod to the ceramic inserts that line the 120 positions of its unidirectional rotating bezel. Once upon a time, always in these civilizational surroundings of the Pays de Neuchâtel, 250 kg of ceramics were found not far from a certain Devil’s Path: one more historical mystery, in the shape of “a stone-paved Roman road leading to Aventicum, the capital of Helvetia.”

Elka Watch Co, Iconic Swiss watch company, born in Amsterdam 150 years ago

ELKA watches are part of a tradition, a lineage, and a history. That of a brand founded in 1877 in Amsterdam by Eliazer Kiek, inventor of the tactile watch for the blind and watchmaker to Queen Juliana of the Netherlands. In 1949, the ELKA Watch Company opened its Swiss branch in La Chaux-de-Fonds. (It produced wristwatches, of course, but also pocket watches, Braille watches, chronographs, chess, and signal clocks.). Then, in the mid-1970s, the brand disappeared, along with Ernst Louis Kiek, his grandson and last heir.

Hakim El Kadiri, aka ‘Elka’

With a foundation in mechanical engineering, Hakim El Kadiri has spent the vast majority of his working life working in the product development side of the watch industry. “My work is not a job; it’s a passion, I love what I do, and I don’t feel like going to work in the
Morning, I dream about my work; I live my work, I breathe my work; the part your work takes in your life is huge if you are lucky enough to be passionate; you’ll never think about working; you’ll enjoy your life and the balance of life you’ll have.”.

Choosing Jewelry for an Event

Choosing the right jewelry for an event can be a daunting task. You want to look your best, but you also don’t want to go overboard. Here are a few tips to help you choose the perfect jewelry for any occasion.

Events and invitations are very special activities for women. Of course, women’s preparation process, clothing, and jewelry selection also vary depending on the event. Choosing jewelry for an event is the most difficult and indecisive thing in this process. Jewelry that is preferred with the right choices can create miracles in combinations. Even with just jewelry choices, it is possible to create a certain style. While emphasizing the natural and simple beauty of elegant jewelry models, you can easily reveal your original character with modern and artistic designs.

You also have the opportunity to use the power of jewelry to send special messages. Because jewelry is not just an accessory, it can be the perfect detail that you can use to reveal your style in the best way. Stylish women’s clothing and a perfect choice of jewelry can make you the queen of that event.

Each item of jewelry complements your outfit.

Jewelry that complements your clothes is the most impressive element of your style. You can create perfect styles with stylish jewelry suitable for every outfit. Sometimes even a single necklace changes the mood and style of the outfit. From this point of view, gold jewelry models add stylish and impressive details to all kinds of clothes.

If you have jewelry models in different styles, you can use your jewelry as powerful combination pieces for countless styles. You can add a rich atmosphere to your daily combination by combining a simple combination, such as a white T-shirt and black jeans, with our jewelry models designed with a black-yellow gold combination. You can also turn a plain sports dress into an ethnic style with dangly earrings and gemstone bracelets. Generally, you don’t need to buy women’s clothing because jewelry can be easily combined with any clothing.

Which jewelry is preferred for special events?

Jewelry selections can be made according to the type of event and the dress worn at special day events. If the event is luxurious and spectacular, flashy jewelry with a gold-diamond design can be preferred. Minimalist and elegant jewelry can be worn at more simple events. Romantic, modern, and fun or elegant jewelry can be selected according to the dress worn at events such as graduation. You can make your outfits perfectly interesting with simple jewelry without having to wear brand women’s clothing.

You can buy elegant dresses that you can wear to events from https://25union.biz.tr/, the well-known “women’s clothing online store.”.

How is jewelry combined with clothing?

The choice of jewelry can take an outfit to a completely different level. So, how do you combine jewelry with clothing? The topic is always curious. There needs to be a decoupling between the color of the jewelry and the color of the outfit. For example, dresses in warm tones and jewelry in gold and rose colors match perfectly. On the other hand, clothes in cold tones are more compatible with jewelry.

The pattern and style of the outfit also affect the choice of jewelry. A simple dress can be enlivened with a large and flashy necklace or earrings. On the other hand, in addition to a patterned or detailed outfit, simple and minimal jewelry can be preferred. Thus, a distracting appearance can be avoided.

The size of the accessories is also an important issue. If you have a petite build, smaller and thinner jewelry may be suitable for you. If you have a taller and fuller body type, you can choose larger and more noticeable pieces. If there is no suitable clothing for your favorite jewelry, you can create the most suitable combination by ordering it from a popular women’s clothing online store. It brings elegance to your jewelry and makes it compatible with your style. If you have a classic style, pearls and elegant jewelry can be preferred. Briefly, although choosing jewelry for an event is very difficult, women know how to overcome it.

Diamond ICQ Investigates Motivations and Channels for Reselling Jewelry in the Hong Kong Diamond Market

Optimizing and Consolidating Business Structure to Promote Sustainable Circulation Patterns in the Pre-owned Diamond Jewellery Industry

Diamond ICQ (“the Company”) is one of Hong Kong’s largest dedicated diamond stores, specializing in buying and selling various high-quality diamond jewelry. The company is committed to providing diamond collectors with flexible solutions and channels to resell their jewelry and collections. Since its establishment, Diamond ICQ has gained industry recognition and a reputation at home and abroad.

Recent market research conducted by Diamond ICQ reveals that the global economic boost after the COVID-19 pandemic has fallen short of expectations in terms of speed and extent. Many jewelry owners are facing economic pressures and are seeking professional and reliable resale options to facilitate liquidity. Some sellers choose to resell jewelry due to financial considerations, while many collectors no longer feel certain pieces are attached or meaningful to their current circumstances.

Additionally, some owners also wish to raise funds and donate to charitable organizations by selling their family heirloom jewelry, expressing gratitude for past generations, and giving back to society. Furthermore, there is a common demand for upgrading by trading in smaller diamond jewelry for larger ones. Diamond ICQ advocates for and promotes the concept of sustainable circulation for diamond jewelry.

However, the current channels for diamond resale in Hong Kong are deficient. Large-scale international auction houses have high thresholds and transaction fees for diamond resale, and their processes typically require a long time to schedule queuing for vendue.

Pawnshops, on the other hand, exercise particular caution regarding the risks associated with handling such items, meaning limited acceptance rates and categories. And those most accessible traditional jewelry stores, which used to offer buy-back services for their own products, have ceased doing so in recent years. This situation indicates “a thriving market without viable options” for reselling pre-owned diamond jewelry. In light of this, Diamond ICQ is actively optimizing and consolidating its diamond jewellery resale business to gratify the market demand.

As the only dedicated pre-owned diamond jewellery store in Hong Kong, Diamond ICQ provides a one-stop service for buying, selling, and consigning jewellery. Regardless of the size or certification status of the jewellery, the company offers professional and fair valuation services, ensuring a smooth and efficient transaction process. With a top-notch team of experts and advanced equipment, Diamond ICQ can instantly authenticate diamonds and gemstones, and its online quotation service is fast and convenient.

With the support of its substantial financial capabilities, the company ensures that sellers receive immediate payment without worry afterward. Diamond ICQ’s diamond jewellery collection includes rings, necklaces, bracelets, earrings, and pendants. In addition, they offer loose diamonds, gemstones (such as rubies, sapphires, emeralds, etc.), pearls, and jadeite. All diamonds and jewellery must undergo rigorous quality control and a comprehensive appraisal process, guaranteeing authenticity, identification, and competitive pricing.

Mr. Lam, the spokesperson for Diamond ICQ, stated, “Diamond ICQ aims to provide a one-stop service for jewellery enthusiasts. We value transparency and customer interests, respecting the needs and privacy of every customer, and providing the most professional advice. Whether it’s valuation or transaction, Diamond ICQ is known for its integrity and reliability, having established a solid brand reputation and customer base.

The company emphasizes the concept of sustainable business and is committed to protecting the environment, giving back to society, and ensuring ethical trade. We promote environmental conservation and actively drive the circulation of value in diamond jewellery. We firmly believe that a sustainable business strategy not only contributes to industry development but also provides customers with diversified choices and solutions.
