Your most valuable assets may not have the protection you want, including a black pearl necklace, a vintage Rolex, or a diamond engagement ring. Fortunately, with your home insurance policy, you can purchase an add-on for your jewelry.
What You Need
If you have other types of substantial assets, you will need jewelry insurance. Otherwise known as a “floater” or a “rider” - since it focuses on small moveable items - it can overpower an insurance policy if the traditional insurance expires, and primarily provides coverage for the item against damage, loss, fire, and theft.
Most big-time insurers try not to offer jewelry coverage as an individual policy -- having homeowners insurance is necessary. However, those who own valuables can buy add-on coverage to their existing insurance policy. Major insurance companies encourage their clients to have additional handling for jewelry and other valuables.
Examples of Insurance Coverage
For Instance, a standard homeowner’s insurance policy at USAA offers coverage for jewelry lost in theft or fire, but not to accidental loss or damage. The limit of coverage for valuables is $10,000 and can be a policy deductible subject - the amount you need to pay before the insurance coverage comes to play. If you want more coverage for your jewelry, you will have to purchase a separate policy.
What to Ask
As you consider on which jewelry insurance policy option to choose, remember keep these questions in mind:
Several insurance companies offer discounts to their clients if they buy multiple policies at once. If you have property, life, auto, and home insurance from only one insurer, you will most likely receive a better deal.
