With the Christmas holiday period almost upon us, we are now entering the time of year dubbed “Engagement Season”. Followers of Facebook and other social media sites will soon start to see their timelines populated by the “We’ve just got engaged” post.
Whilst summer is considered the most popular time to actually get married , the lead up to it starts around about now, many consider Christmas Eve the best time to propose (although girls seem to believe that Valentine’s day is more romantic)
Possibly Christmas is more practical, this is the time of year when firms tend to pay a bonus and that can be put towards the all-important engagement ring.
Whilst traditionally (a tradition probably invented by someone with a vested interest in selling Jewellery) you should spend three months’ salary on an engagement ring (ouch) Nowadays with millennials making up the main purchasers of rings, one month is considered perfectly adequate and some couples in thoroughly modern relationships even split the cost.
An average amount paid for an item is £1500.
The truth of the matter is, it doesn’t matter what you spend on the ring, it really is the thought that counts. We are constantly speaking to customers on the phone about insurance for their engagement rings and we know that the thrill of receiving the item far weighs any monetary value.
We at Assetsure specialize in providing insurance for engagement rings and if the purchase of one is on your agenda this Christmas, we’d be delighted to hear from you as we can provide full accidental damage and loss insurance for the item from the moment you collect the item and then contine cover when you have it over to you intended. Our policies are fully underwritten at Lloyd’s of London and we receive excellent Trust pilot ratings for our service. We are open 7 days a week to provide cover so why not give us a call and we’ll be delighted to assist you. We will make sure the precious item is fully insured from the moment you pick it up and of course on a worldwide basis once it is handed over
