The Simple Way to Protect Your Favorite Jewelry

What would you do if you damaged a priceless family heirloom? What if you lost your engagement ring? How would you cover the cost of repairing or replacing such important, beautiful pieces? It’s hard to imagine these situations, but there is a way to protect your favorite jewelry in case of damage, loss, or theft.  

You may think your jewelry is protected by your traditional homeowners insurance, but there are many stipulations and details to be aware of. Most homeowners insurance policies limit the amount you can claim in regards to jewelry. Plus, your deductible could end up being more than the jewelry is worth!

Homeowners policies generally only cover named perils. This means your jewelry is only covered in certain situations listed on the policy. This usually includes coverage against theft, storm, or fire damage.

But what if you lose an important piece of jewelry? What if a stone falls out or an expensive clasp breaks? What if you accidently ruin or break your favorite ring or necklace? These types of situations can be covered if you have a separate jewelry insurance policy.

A jewelry insurance policy will protect your precious pieces from any type of harm. These policies can be all-perils policies and cost very little compared to the cost of what you’re insuring.

Jewelry Appraisals

Before you go to an insurance agent for a jewelry policy, you’ll need an appraisal. An appraisal gives the insurance agent a qualified, recent, and honest account of the jewelry’s worth, making sure you receive the full value if you were to ever need the insurance. An appraisal should be no more than five years old to ensure you’re receiving the current full value for your jewelry.

Once your policy is created, the amount of coverage will rise along with the rate of inflation, so there’s no need for new appraisals unless you change insurance providers.
