Why buy jewelry insurance?A specialized jewelry insurance policy provides comprehensive coverage. This includes coverage against scenarios—like mysterious disappearance (or unexplained loss)—that may not be covered by standard homeowners or renters insurance or by warranties.
How much does jewelry insurance cost?Jewelry insurance rates depend on where you live. But for most people, jewelry insurance will cost 1-2% of the value of your jewelry. For example, a $5,000 engagement ring could cost as little as $50 per year for engagement ring insurance.
What types of jewelry are covered?
- Engagement and wedding rings
- Heirloom Jewelry
- Loose stones while being set
What isn't covered with a jewelry policy?
- Wear and tear: Even with the best care, damage can happen over the years. Scratches and tarnishes are expected and won't be covered.
- War and authority: Uncommon, but loss or damage due to war, military action, nuclear hazard, or confiscation by civil authority isn't covered.
- Intentional actions: You couldn't file a claim for purposely damaging or losing your jewelry. If you sell your earrings and the check bounces, that's also not included.
- Pests: If rodents or insects nibble on your heirloom jewelry, that's not covered.
- Collections such as art, guns, and coins
- Non-jewelry items such as dog jewelry tiaras and air pods.
Is jewelry insurance worth it?
- If your jewelry was lost, damaged, or stolen, would you want it repaired or replaced?
- If the answer is yes, how much would you be able or willing to pay out of pocket?
- Can you imagine living without your jewelry pieces?
- Jewelry often has value that doesn't come with a price tag. Would your heart sink if you lost your wedding band or discovered your heirloom earrings disappeared?
Do you need an appraisal to buy jewelry insurance?
Your jewelry isn't ordinary, so you don't settle for ordinary insurance.
