Protect your valuable and meaningful ring with adequate insurance.

During the festivities of the holiday season, many couples get engaged and celebrate their life-long commitment to each other! It’s known that engagement ring sales hike up during the most wonderful time of the year. Whether you said ‘yes’ over Christmas, at beach during the summer, or two years ago, you’ll want to ensure that the rock on your finger is protected!

When purchasing the ring and budgeting for the big day, many brides and grooms-to-be overlook wedding and engagement ring insurance. This can be a costly mistake to make! For most young couples, wedding and engagement rings are among the most valuable items they own. Insurance can protect you from facing huge expenses (and an awkward conversation with your fiancé!) should your ring get damaged or lost.

Determine Value

If you’ve recently spent an arm and a leg on a ring for your loved one for Christmas day, you should have the receipt still in hand or buried somewhere in a drawer! This receipt enables you and your insurer to note the value of your precious piece which, in turn, allows for sufficient coverage to be applied.

If you’ve had your engagement or wedding ring for a while now, get it appraised! Don’t go on what you or your fiancé purchased it for as precious metals and precious stones increase in worth over time.

Insurance Left at the Altar

Your homeowners policy may not cover jewelry replacement if it’s lost or stolen when away from home. It also may not cover small damages such as a stone coming lose from the setting. For an extra couple of bucks a month, increasing your personal items coverage is worth its weight in gold! You may be able to insure high-value items individually, as part of your homeowners’ insurance.

Memorial Day Carrollton, TXHow This Important Holiday Came To Be

Memorial Day offers us a long weekend, and many of us will spend it with friends and family, enjoying a little quality time and taking advantage of the freedoms living in this country offers us. It is so much more than just a day off of work, though. The upcoming holiday reminds us all to pause and remember the brave men and women who gave their lives defending the freedoms we enjoy today. Do you know how Memorial Day first began?

After the Civil War, towns and cities across the country began holding springtime memorials to remember the fallen soldiers. Among them was Waterloo, a town in New York that began celebrating these memorials on May 5th, 1866. In 1966, Waterloo was declared the birthplace of Memorial Day.

May 5th was important for the holiday in another way. On May 5th, 1862, General John A. Logan called for a day of remembrance. From that day of remembrance, a day called Decoration Day grew. It was generally held on the 30th of May. Decoration Day eventually evolved to be known as Memorial Day, and was designated to remember all of the country’s fallen soldiers.

In 1968, the Uniform Monday Holiday Act was passed and Memorial Day was moved from May 30th to the last Monday in May and declared a federal holiday so that we could all enjoy the long weekend.

We hope you find a meaningful way to celebrate this Memorial Day weekend. We will be participating in the national moment of remembrance held at 3:00 p.m. local time along with you. For all of your insurance coverage needs in Irving and the entire state of Texas, contact Global Financial & Insurance Services today. We are here to help you get the protection you need this Memorial Day and beyond.
