How to Protect an Engagement Ring in Winter

In winter, there are three key places where your engagement ring can get misplaced. Be careful when handling the following:

1. Gloves

Gloves are a necessary accessory in the elements, but did you know that glove interiors can snag your ring prongs? It’s true. This means your new ring could become loose and subsequently get lost. To eliminate the risk, simply be mindful when removing gloves.

2. Cold Temperatures

When it gets cold outside, your fingers shrink which means your ring can slip off more easily than in the summer months. Consider having a sizing bump added by a jeweler if your ring is able to twist around your finger easily, even if it’s just for the winter months.

3. Fitness

Skiing, snowboarding, sledding, as well as indoor fitness can put your jewelry at increased risk for chips, breaks and accidental loss. Consider removing your jewelry when you’re most-active.

These are just a few tips for protecting your engagement ring, but the most important is be sure it’s insured! While you can protect your ring through a warranty or homeowners insurance consider a jewelry-specific insurance like Jewelers Mutual® Insurance Company offers. Jewelers Mutual’s Perfect Circle® Jewelry Insurance provides world-wide coverage against loss, theft, damage, and even mysterious disappearance. They work to replace your ring with the same kind and quality ring you had (especially important if your ring is a certain brand) and they encourage you to work with the jeweler of your choice, two pluses when it comes to work with the jeweler of your choice, two pluses when it comes to making the claims process as painless as possible.

    This is great! We get -30 for 4-5 months of the year. I always tell my brides “get you ring insured!!!” and then don’t wear it swimming, working out etc. Bad Idea!
