    We used the jeweler who made my ring, Kim Gillespie with Gillespie Jewelers in Addison.

    About how long did it take?
    About how much did it cost?
    We purchased our rings from Kay's and they stated it would take up to a MONTH!
    I wouldn't have any of my rings for a month!

    I just went through this for my insurance!  He got my ring at Kay, but they don't do in house appraisals.  They said to go to Jarrod's, but their in house guy only comes once a month and it was $90.

    I don't know if you're close to Lewisville, but I ended up getting mine done at Beasley's Jewelry.  I got in in before noon, and they had it done before 3 pm for $35.

    If you aren't near Lewisville, I would highly recommend calling around you and going to a local place, I'm sure they'll be a lot cheaper than the chains.

    I got mine appraised at the place FI purchased it - Nasr Brothers.  It was free.  That is sad that Kay's doesn't provide a speedier service.

    Thank you for all the recomendations. When I called Kay's they said any jeweler should do it for free...yeah right! I don't live near lewisville, but it might be worth the drive.

    HaHa.  I think that's only true if you get the ring from that jeweler.  I don't know if this helps but the Kay's in Lewisville did give me a certificate for insurance which my insurance would have taken, <em>if </em>it wasn't dated over a year ago (I know, my bad on waiting so long).  So if you're within a year, you could ask and try that.

    I'm thinking you are talking about a type  of warranty/insurance through the store. They will replace or fix your jewelry if you have it checked up every 6 months.

    I'm wanting to get insurance on the rings incase they are in a fire, stolen or lost. It is just a little extra piece of mind. It is a rider that is an addition to what would be my homeowner's insurance policy. To recieve this though I need to have the rings appraised with documentation in my name to verify that I own the rings.
