Jewelry Insurance

Jewelry Insurance

If you took the “easy” option and bought home insurance from your mortgage lender or a high street insurer, and you own antique or designer jewelry, it may be time to upgrade to a specialist policy.

A small number of insurers provide specialist policies for discerning homeowners, which offer:

  1. Lower rates: with individual risk assessments, the insurer gets a more accurate picture and you don’t pay for others’ carelessness.
  2. No restrictive small print: jewelry on your dressing table may be uninsured on a standard home policy - many carry small print clauses that nullify the cover for jewelry not being worn or in a safe.
  3. Choice of jeweler for repair/replacement: would vouchers for a high-street outlet really replace your precious pieces? Some insurers insist you use their supplier to keep their costs down.
  4. Valuation advice: gold and gem prices change with fashion and trends – without good advice you could be paying too much or be under-insured. After a theft, the last thing you need is a tussle over the value of each lost piece.
  5. Extra covers: if you lose one ear-ring the insurer will replace both. And the insurer pays the pre-agreed value regardless of subsequent wear and tear or depreciation.
  6. Cash claims settlement: valuable pieces cannot easily be replaced – or it may take time. Specialist policies pay out claims in cash, so you can choose whether/how to replace.
