The unthinkable happens; your jewelry can be lost or stolen. How are you going to replace it? Like your house or car, you can also insure your jewelry.
Insurance is there to provide support for life's "just in case" scenarios. Insuring your jewelry is a personal choice of balancing the risk that one day you may not have it anymore, versus keeping it forever. In some policies, your personal jewelry is covered by your homeowner's or renter's insurance; but your jewelry and the other items that could be taken during a theft, may be valued more than than the cap on the amount that your jewelry is covered.
When you decide to insure your jewelry it is important to find out exactly what is covered.
Get everything concerning your policy spelled out in writing. Make sure that you leave your jewelry in safe keeping when traveling across country or engaging in activities that do not require your jewelry. If you are unsure about insuring your jewelry with your other policies, there are specialized jewelry insurance companies that we recommend, including Jewelers Mutual.
