sentimental or practical?

Mailing a diamond ring is complicated. No one will sell you insurance. I have a headache, so I'm not even going to go into why this has come up, but don't worry, it was boring anyway.

Say you did mailed or FedExed or UPSed your engagement/wedding ring. And say they lost it.

Would you:
a) replace it with something that looked exactly the same
b) something the same only bigger
c) choose something altogether different
d) not bother since nothing can replace the original

just curious.

Please tell me this was another dream.

I would do a combo of a and b. If I could find something bigger or that I liked better for about the same price.

Uh-oh. Hoping nothing happened to your ring. Mine is a treasure to me.

Same. I love my ring. We picked it out together.

um. mmm. unless my husband's feelings would be hurt, i think i'd take the opportunity to choose something that matched my current tastes. and if the first one had been really teeny... i might upgrade.

except ooh! i think i wouldn't get a diamond, but some other stone, but i would get it cut and set like a diamond engagement ring. you know the wars and the artificially inflated values of diamonds and all...

oh, and you could still pick it out together. :)
