2.-Would you replace them with less expensive but identical ones? If you did, would you tell him that you did so?
3.- What do u think his reaction would be?
One if my nearest and dearest friends is going through this and I have no idea what to tell her for advice.
I mean, they Are her rings, not his? Though he did spend thousands on them (according to her) Idk. What are Your views?
EDIT - Thank you Ladies for all the responses! and I will get back to you after I speak to her tonight concerning whether or not they have insurance.
Atleast I know what to advise her to do. I'm going to jokingly tell her "Stop being a punk and tell him" she'll laugh, hopefully take my advice and let him know.
EDIT 2: she says theres no insurance on the rings
