(How much do you love that picture?? /\ )
Matt Cawley planned a very romantic proposal for his girlfriend, Stacy Scanlon on the cape earlier this week. Cawley tied the $9000 engagement ring to a sand dollar and left it on the jetty. The original plan was to lead her there to find it. Awww! Unfortunately, things didn’t exactly work out that way.
When Scanlon found the sand dollar, the knot tying the ring to it had untied, sending the $9000 ring into the Atlantic Ocean.
(At this juncture, I was planning on spewing some corny joke relating sand dollars to dollars to the $9000 ring, but I couldn’t come up with anything. If you made a witty connection, please leave it as a comment.)
The good news (!) though is that Cawley’s mother –though unbeknownst to him– took out an insurance policy to protect the ring only the day before!
Go around your house. Do you have any jewelry that you’d miss? So often, things get lost or stolen! See the story above for a good example. Call me for a free quote to see how much it would be to add it to your homeowner’s policy!
Did you know that if you scheduled jewelry on your policy 10 years ago, it may be worth 3 or 4 times its original, scheduled value now since -in the past 10 years- the price of gold has quadrupled!
