How Home or Renters Insurance Can Protect Your Jewelry, Mebane, North Carolina

Jewelry is one of the most common gifts people give during the holidays. If you’re lucky enough to be the recipient of a new expensive piece, one of the first things you’ll want to do after all the presents have been unwrapped is call your homeowners or renters insurance provider. It’s important to learn whether or not your current policy will adequately cover the latest addition to your collection. If not, your agent can suggest the best policy upgrade for your new treasure. In the meantime, here are some things you should understand about your coverage and how it can help protect valuable jewelry items. 

Is Your Jewelry Covered by Insurance?

How Jewelry Is Covered Under a Standard Policy 

Nearly every standard home and renters insurance policy includes coverage for jewelry. However, most providers place limits on how much you can be reimbursed in the event of damage or theft. This means you will only receive part of the item’s value. Also note that jewelry is only covered if a loss occurs due to certain perils, such as fire, hail or windstorm, electrical current, freezing pipes, explosions, vandalism, and theft. 

Why You Might Consider Buying Additional Coverage

These are designed to provide higher amounts of coverage than a basic policy. Some riders will also cover accidental loss in addition to damage and theft, increasing your peace of mind that you will be protected no matter what happens. 

 

Considering the sentimental and actual value of your jewelry pieces, it’s crucial to make sure you’re properly covered in the event of a theft or disaster.
