I'm 63 years old and I never wore any jewelry because of this , if someone try to Rob me , I will fight back and hurt him or back then kill him . When I were younger I has a very bad attitude and a short one . I Truly Praise THE LORD JESUS CHRIST for teaching me about Forgiveness and showing Mercy to my Enemy . It is not worthy to die for a piece of jewelry and that why I don't wear it or buy it .

He'll apply to insurance, but you can bet the insurance company will investigate it fully. When was it insured? How much insurance did he carry, his net worth etc.
