    I will try the dentastix at 12.30 am as they go on multi tomorrow. I'm hoping the multi is active at that time. And I try the apg before 6am. Just trying a different way to get a glitch. But as I said. If multi is active at that time. I'm guessing it's going to be the 7 packets.

    Evening! Well it is here

    A lovely 26 degrees in Wanaka, don't want to be typing that too quickly and accidentally missing out an "a"

    Almost got tempted by a bungee jump earlier, if I'd stayed any longer I would have signed myself up for a dunking in the river.

    Captured the Aurora Australis on camera Talking to another tog, who was on top of the cliff said it looked much better from his view point as it was really hard to make out from where I was standing. Easily could have missed it if you weren't looking for it!

    Morning all
    Something unexpected happened which made me smile and still continues to make me smile.

    You can't make it up. Just found out that one of our "neighbours" from Scotland is parked up next to us in the camping ground. Half way round the world....

    Good evening all, I wonder if anybody know anything about insurance claims. I have lost my darling Mums 2 diamond rings. One has a valuation but not the other. Unfortunately I only declared the one with the valuation as having a value of £1500 even though I know it was valued 30 years ago at £2000' but I thought I had lost it (the certificate) but subsequently found it after I had put in a claim. The other one has no valuation only the decription which I have given to the insurers.
    They are telling me because I only declared the one valuation at £1500 that is all they will pay, even though the jewellery company in association with the insurers have put a value of £3200 on it from the photos I have of it, and of course the valuation certificate and £950 for the other.
    I dont have any photos of the other. The insurers are only giving me vouchers to be used in only 2 named shops totalling £2200 net after deducting £100 excess for each ring. Now, when I have looked online at these 2 shops websites I can see that that wont even be enough to buy the lesser value ring that I have lost, their value of £950 having been put on it, and the equivalent similar ring on these websites is £2400, the other one about £4000.I feel so sad that Ive lost my darling Mums rings, but I am also really angry that I have not been awarded at least the value of 1 decent ring. The complaints department is due to ring me, but I am wondering if anyone can suggest where else I could go. It is supposed to be replacement value but that is a joke.
    Sorry for long tale of woe, I know other people have real problems at the moment, but thinking about my mum makes me cry.

    I'm reading that it had a valuation 30 years ago and was valued at £2000 then but you chose to only insure it for £1500 which is what they are paying you.
    Plus they are paying £700 for the other ring which a jeweller has valued at £950.

    If I'm reading it correctly I think you have two points to argue. Firstly the £250 that they have under valued the second ring by and secondly the vouchers forvthe high street jewellers presumably Gold Smith type stores.
    Tell them that you don't want vouchers but you want your local jeweller to source you a ring most similar to your mum's and ask them to settle direct with the jeweller, check with the jeweller first though.

    It is very difficult to compare a ring that looks "similar" because it depends on the stone, colour, clarity, inclusions.

    I understand why you are upset but once you get the new ring make sure it is listed on your insurance

    We see this constantly I served a lady yesterday with a beautiful ring. It had been valued at £7000 20 years ago but it wasnt listed on her insurance, when i asked why she said because the premium would go up....... not as much as replacing that diamond I thought....but didn't say

    DM, thinking about a road trip to Bruges !
    6 hours drive to Dover, ferry to Dunkirk, an hours drive at the other side. .. Hypermarket in Dunkirk on the way back.
    What do we need to look for in Bruges?

    The architecture is fab

    Good morning lovely peoples

    I've been rather poorly recently, but my bloods show I'm good to go for my 3rd round tomorrow.

    diluvsdiscounts - thank you so much again for your advice about Ondansetron. I spoke to my Oncologist and asked him for more for the next round. Without hesitation he agreed to give me the full 5 days worth rather than just the 2 days

    Hugs and positive thoughts to all those that are going through rough times

    And thank you TM

    Good morning di and all the elite. The reason why I declared the value on my insurance for the solitaire as £1500 was because I thought the valuation certificate had been lost, (found now) and on the insurance application it said anything above £1500 must have a valuation. Of course I meant to to do that but you know how it is, the road to hell and all that. The other ring was described and sent with a photo of my daughters ring as my ring and hers had the same size stones in it and the jewellery assessors decided that each stone was 10 points, in other words 1/10 of a carat but my daughter has a valuation certificate stating that each stone is 22 points. They are now saying that they wont pay me for that ring as in view of the fact that therefore its value was over £1500 and since I didnt declare it they wont pay for it, or at least that is what the last person I spoke to implied.
    I do understand that each stone despite size is valued individually but it was just a rough description as I had no photos of it. Its the
    first time in my long life I have made a claim, but wasnt expecting such a slippery response.

    Heres hoping the joyful day will be here very soon, bet all your nails are chewed up.
