    Is It Time To Review Your Jewelry Coverage? October 24, 2017

    Whether of purely sentimental value or part of a collection you actively add to, jewelry is ultimately one of your wealth assets. Protecting those assets requires the right insurance, but a standard standalone homeowners policy may not be up to the challenge. Under certain circumstances, many homeowners policies limit jewelry coverage to $1,000-$2,000. Would that be enough to cover your engagement ring, grandmother’s pearls, or favorite watch individually? What about all of them combined?

    Whether your jewelry collection is worth $25,000 or $5 million, Brunswick Companies has a jewelry coverage solution for you.

    If your jewelry collection is valuable, there are several coverage options worth considering:

    • Blanket Coverage insures items without appraisals needed.
    • Scheduled/itemized Coverage will insure specific items for their appraised value.
    • Inflation protection activates if the market value of a scheduled item has increased and exceeds its itemized amount of coverage.
    • Types of losses include theft, damage, and mysterious disappearance if you lose your jewelry. If one part of a pair or set is lost, stolen, or damaged, coverage is available to replace the entire pair/set (standard homeowners policies typically only cover theft).
    • New purchases: If you already have jewelry scheduled on a personal collections policy with us, your new jewelry purchases will be covered for up to 90 days from acquisition, even if you haven’t yet notified us of your purchase.
    • Reduced rate for secured jewelry applies for pieces kept in a bank vault, safety deposit box, or qualifying home safe.
    • If you borrow jewelry, coverage applies for up to 90 days from the date you acquired the borrowed item(s).
