Rich People Like Fake Jewelry Too

I had a bit of a Real Housewives of Orange County marathon the other day and well, who doesn't like watching rich housewives fight over every little thing? I sure do!

"Omg..did you SEE the way she looked at me? We are so not friends anymore." 

I mean the way they fight and make such a huge deal over everything is beyond me. Plastic surgery is rampant and they call champangne "champs" and when they went camping, they called it "glamping" hahaha.


Anyway this post wasn't meant to bash them, because they are purely entertaining to watch and I admittedly love watching them because they make my problems feel so minuscule. I like watching insecure people, okay?!

I was watching an episode that caught my attention. They were talking about wedding rings and how someone’s ring was once stolen. This led to talking about re-appraising rings often, so that if you ever lost your ring or if it was stolen, insurance would cover the full amount that the diamonds are worth.

Have you ever insured your jewelry? I was thinking…I have jewelry that’s worth close to $1,000. Should I be insuring these items? I would obviously be devastated if I lost them, and I’d like to have them replaced. Isn’t that the beauty of insurance?

After all of the re-appraisal talk, Alexis (one of the more airheaded housewives), said, “That’s why I wear a fake ring. So if someone wants to steal it, go right ahead!” 

Heather and Vicky (the smarter-ish housewives) then started saying that they wear their rings but they insure their rings so they can wear them all the time. Alexis stated that she insured her ring, keeps it in a safe, but she ends up wearing a fake diamond ring so she feels safe knowing that she doesn’t have to worry about it.

Heather ends up wondering why you would go to great lengths to insure your ring, but end up not wearing it. Why would you buy nice things if you can’t use them?

I’m not going to go into a debate of whether it’s ethical to buy fake items or fake jewelry because this may go on and on about how buying fake items mean that you support child labor and unethical working conditions in sweatshops (which I don’t support), but I want to focus on the debate itself.

I can see why Alexis would wear a fake ring, especially if her real ring was worth $20,000 or even $10,000. I would not want that kind of money just floating on my finger. I’m definitely the more cautious type and I like to make sure that my things are taken care of.

If I had a Rolex, I think I wouldn’t mind sporting a fake one sometimes when I didn’t want to attract attention. Then again, there are always other watches that I’d rather wear…like Michael Kors watches.

However, with my designer bags – I think that would be ridiculous to get a fake one just so that the authentic one would not be ruined or used. If I wanted a throw around bag, I’d just use a no-name brand bag for that sake.

What’s the point of insuring items if you aren’t able to use them? If you had an expensive item, would you go so far as to insure it and keep it stashed away by using an exact fake/replica?

I have been browsing on-line more than 3 hours nowadays, yet I
by no means discovered any fascinating article like yours.
It is lovely price sufficient for me. In my opinion, if all website owners
and bloggers made good content material as you did, the internet can be much more helpful than ever
before.
