    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.

    It does sound like they are trying to get away without paying you fully whatvyou are owed but unfortunately in my experiences that's exactly what they are like. Keep fighting them but I wouldn't accept the vouchers.

    Curlgirl, our valuations start at £85 but once you start getting a diamond over 1ct or can item over 5k it rapidly goes up. But that is for a full report, photos etc. Most jewellers will give you a verbal valuation.

    My advice would be to take individual photos of each item and then you won't find yourself in chocoholics position of having no evidence.

    Thanks di, thats very good advice. Will try to refuse the vouchers and also get onto the ombudsman if I have to but they seem to be unmoveable at the moment. My insurance only requires anything above £1500 to have a valuation. The second 3 stone ring had stones the same size as my daughters ring, although hers has 5 stones in it so it was just a rough description. Just looking at my valuation certificate for The solitaire I think I was royally overcharged. The only informati on it is 18 carat gold ring and .75 carat diamond - just the bare bones so I think they got their money under false pretences.
