We know how much your personal jewellery means to you.

Our jewellery insurance provides first class cover for low premiums, giving you peace of mind and the freedom to wear your jewellery wherever you are.
What is specialist jewellery insurance?
Specialist jewellery insurance covers your jewellery against loss*, theft and accidental damage. Our jewellery insurance allows you to protect a range of valuable and potentially irreplaceable items such as rings, necklaces, bracelets and more worldwide.
Why do I need to insure my jewellery?
Jewellery is often hard to trace, easy to spot and delicate in size, and is therefore particularly vulnerable to loss*, theft and accidental damage. That’s why you should protect your precious items by taking out specialist jewellery insurance. Having specialist jewellery insurance means you can wear items of value without worrying about what could happen to them.
What does specialist jewellery insurance cover?
Specialist jewellery insurance covers your valuables against loss*, theft and accidental damage both at home and away from home. Our jewellery insurance also extends worldwide, so your items are protected wherever you choose to travel. The maximum value of jewellery that can be insured on one policy is £30,000, so you can add several pieces of jewellery to one simple-to-arrange policy. The maximum value per item on the policy is £20,000.
Does my home insurance cover my jewellery?
Some household insurance policies will not provide cover for your jewellery outside of the home, meaning that your valuable items could be unprotected when you are wearing them. Most home insurance policies require you to specify items over a certain value in order for them to be covered under the policy. This can be expensive and claims can impact on your no-claims bonus, which may drive up the cost of your annual premium. Our bespoke jewellery insurance provides you with an efficient and cost-effective solution – all the cover you need and the best value premiums.
What type of jewellery can I insure?
We insure any item with a value between £1,000 and £20,000 and jewellery collections with a combined value of up to £30,000. We cover engagement and wedding rings, diamond rings, necklaces, bracelets, earrings, tiaras, brooches, charms, lockets, bangles, armlets, pendants and chokers.
How much does jewellery insurance cost?
The cost of our jewellery insurance depends on several factors, such as the value of your jewellery, your age and your location. We also offer a Lowest Price Guarantee as we’re confident that you won’t find the same cover cheaper elsewhere – and if you do happen to find the same cover within 14 days of taking out your policy, we’ll refund the difference.
Do I need to get my jewellery valued?
When you’re taking out jewellery insurance, it’s important to know how much your items are worth. In the first instance, you should ideally have a receipt which details how much you paid for your jewellery. However, if you don’t have this, or your items have increased in value since you purchased them, it’s essential to obtain an accurate, up-to-date valuation of your jewellery before taking out insurance. Otherwise, your claim will be affected if you’re unable to provide evidence of the value of your item(s).
You should get your jewellery valued by the National Association of Jewellers as you will need to provide us with a valuation from within the last 3 years if you ever need to make a claim. There are over two thousands NAJ members across the United Kingdom and Ireland, which you can find by clicking here.
