So I am living in Africa. I finally got my damaged rings to a very trusted friend in the states so he can help me get them repaired and hand carry them back to me next time he visits. How should he send it to the jeweler (on the opposite coast) for repair? The rings are insured through jeweler's mutual and I'm wondering if I need to purchase insurance during shipping as well. I don't recall any exclusions in the policy regarding loss by a common carrier. However their representatives have told me they won't cover losses overseas either (despite explicit wording in the T&Cs that they do) so I'm concerned if their agents think some losses should be excluded from the coverage that I would have difficulty in collecting a claim regardless what the contract really says. I'm not planning on filing a claim for the damage as the cost to repair shouldn't be much I just want to be covered from total loss. In the past I have chosen to do registered mail and I really hate sweating bullets waiting for things to arrive so I now prefer to use Fedex. Thanks!
