How much does jewellery insurance cost?

The price you pay for jewellery cover as part of your home contents insurance policy will depend largely on the amount of cover you take out and the value of the jewellery you want to insure. As you would expect, the more expensive the items the more you’ll need to pay for cover.

However insurers will also take other factors into account, including:

  • Security

You’ll generally be able to claim on your jewellery insurance policy by filling out a claim form your insurer will have given you, though you may also be able to submit a claim online or over the phone. If you’re claiming for theft you should call the police and submit a report immediately.

If you ever need to make a claim on your jewellery insurance policy, the following tips will make the process easier:

  • one icon

    Declare your valuable items

    If you have any items of particular value you should declare them to your insurer - otherwise they may refuse to pay out if you have to make a claim

  • Two icon

    Keep your declarations updated

    Likewise if you make any big purchases, or even receive jewellery as gifts, you should update your declarations to ensure you always have the cover you need

  • Three icon

    Keep a proof of purchase

    Insurers will require you to show proof of purchase when making a claim. A receipt is best, though a valuation certificate also backs up your claim

  • Four icon

    Take photographs

    Photographic evidence of any damage done to your jewellery, as well as photos showing it in brand new condition, can help support your claim

Contents insurance covers your possessions in the event of theft, loss or damage, including natural disasters, fires or flooding. It’s separate to home insurance, which covers the building you live in, including fixtures and fittings.

Some insurers offer policies for jewellery sets or collections, though these are likely to raise your premiums – you may even have to go to a specialist insurer to get the cover you need.

You might be able to include cover for other valuables such as art, antiques or collectibles as part of a single policy. Remember to declare any items you want cover for.

If you have a piece of jewellery repaired, its market value may fall as a result. Some insurers will cover you for this loss in value, but it’s worth finding out beforehand to be sure.

Not all insurers offer cover if you take your jewellery abroad; some might refuse claims outright, while others may only offer protection if you’ve been away for under a certain length of time. If you’re going to take jewellery away with you, checkwith your insurer what level of cover they offer.

  • Wear and tear: For example, if you lose a gemstone from a ring or necklace as a result of age or general wear and tear, you won’t be able to claim
  • Misplacement: If you lose an item of jewellery at home some insurers may not class this as strictly ‘lost’. They might say it’s been misplaced, in which case you won’t be covered for loss
  • Unforced theft: Your insurer might also not pay out if your jewellery was stolen and there was no sign of forced entry, or if the person who stole the item was invited into your home
  • Cosmetic damage: Certain types of damage such as scratches or dents are classed as purely cosmetic by insurers, and they probably won’t pay out
