J is for Jewellery Insurance
As a result, we become emotionally attached to our jewellery and it can be devastating to lose it, or have it stolen.
If you have jewellery, you should make sure that you take out adequate Insurance for it.
Tips for getting Jewellery Insurance
The most obvious and suitable way to insure your jewellery is to add it to your Home contents insurance.
Your contents insurer will often add the cover to your policy for an additional premium.
However, it’s really important to check that the jewellery is covered correctly and to meet your needs.
For example, adding jewellery to your contents insurance policy may not necessarily cover the item(s) once they leave your home. If you regularly wear the jewellery or want it covered away from your home, you will need to check that your policy is providing this.
Your policy may come with unspecified personal possessions cover, however, sometimes this cover comes with ‘inner limits’ and ‘single article limits’, which means if you have a piece of jewellery that is more expensive than this, you may not be fully covered in the event of a claim.
Its our view that you are always better off if you specify the items.
Another good idea is to have the item(s) valued regularly to ensure you are adequately covered, as the price of jewellery can increase dramatically over the years.
Finally, take some photos of yourself with or wearing the jewellery, which always helps prove you owned it if you have a big loss and don’t have proof of purchase.
