  4. Want Your Engagement Ring to Look Brand New For Years?

    Your Engagement Ring Can Look Brand New for Years! Simply Follow These Tips From Our Jewelry Experts."I just got engaged!  I love my ring so much and I want to make sure it sparkles like this forever!  Do you have any tips for caring for engagement rings?"

    Congratulations!  We’re so happy to hear from newly engaged couples. We definitely can help you keep your engagement ring shiny and bright with these tips from our jewelry experts: 

    1) Have that ring insured!

    This should be one of the first things you do after the excitement of being engaged.  No one ever wants to think about their precious ring being damaged, lost or stolen, but unfortunately, it can happen.

    And while the emotional value of your ring is impossible to replace, ring insurance can cover the replacement cost.  Ring insurance can be bought as an extension to your renter’s or homeowner’s policy. Or, for more coverage (replacing the actual lost or stolen ring), consider a company that specializes in jewelry insurance. Here are some additional ring insurance tips:

    1. Take pictures of your ring.
    2. You should have received a Statement of Value document when you purchased your ring (if not, request one!). We require the original receipt from your purchase in order to properly complete the Statement of Value for you. Once completed, these Statements of Value generally satisfy insurance company requirements for jewelry riders appended to homeowner's policies. Keep it somewhere safe as you'll likely need it when looking to insure your jewelry.
    3. Keep in mind that the value of your jewelry can increase over time. It is important to obtain a current Statement of Value every 2-3 years and update your policy when the value of jewelry changes to ensure adequate coverage with your insurance company.
    4. Keep a copy of your purchase receipt on your computer or in a safe.

  5. A Gabriel & Co. Story: The Lost Engagement Ring

    A Gabriel & Co. Story: The Lost Engagement Ring

    Losing an engagement ring is every woman in love's nightmare. Sadly, for Ciara, it became her reality. "I went running one night and when I got home I look down and realized I had lost my rings," she said, "Me and my husband, who recently proposed after returning home from a nine month deployment in Afghanistan, looked everywhere.

    I have never prayed over a material object as I did during these two days, because the ring was more than that. It had come from my soulmate. I was heart broken and devastated."  

    Spent and exhausted, Ciara posted on every yard-sale website in Clarksville. Her message was simple. 

    "If there are any good people left in this world, my wedding bands & engagement ring were lost last weekend...Please, please be a good soul and turn it in. I'm hoping it turns up. My husband and I have looked for 2 days now." Ciara also emailed all the local news websites, lost / found pages and soon had hundreds of people sharing her story across social media. 

    That same day, a woman in Clarksville found a ring in a parking lot.  Naturally, she didn't know to whom it belonged but she noticed two engravings inside the ring. The first said "Gabriel & Co."

    The second engraving was a serial number.  EVERY GABRIEL & CO. ENGAGEMENT RING HAS A UNIQUE SERIAL NUMBER.  NO TWO RINGS ARE ALIKE.
