Whether you prefer investing in diamonds, pearls, precious gemstones or gold, repairing damaged jewelry can be very costly. This is where extended warranties can come in handy. You can protect your jewelry for a nominal fee (maybe even free for the first year), covering damage to your pieces for years to come. If you've ever paid to repair jewelry, you can appreciate paying a relatively small fee for the peace of mind that comes along with purchasing an extended warranty.
But what does an extended warranty actually cover?
1. Broken chains or clasps
It's happened to all of us. Your only option is to swap the chain (if you have one that you can actually make work) or shelve it and wear something else. Extended warranties can cover broken chains, clasps and bracelets. With an extended warranty, you can get your favorite piece repaired instead of having it collect dust in your jewelry box.
2. Lost center diamonds or scratched gemstones
A scratch on your diamond or a crack in a gem is really disappointing (and unsightly). An extended warranty protects you against various types of damage, and covers repair and replacement services depending on the mishap. It even protects you against lost center diamonds or gemstones if the loss is due to defects in mounting or workmanship.
3. Broken prongs or shanks
When there's a broken or worn out prong, it can loosen the stone setting and eventually. you may lose the gemstones or diamonds. Moreover, if there's a broken shank, the ring is rendered completely useless, as manufacturers do not cover these defects. The extended warranty has you covered in these cases.
4. Resizing and restringing
Apart from damages and defects, extended warranties also cover resizing of one ring and a one-time replacement of pearls.
