Why is a specialized jewelry insurance important when it comes to protecting one of your most prized possessions? We’ve teamed up with Jewelers Mutual Insurance Company to talk jewelry coverage, plus a look at some of the gorgeous engagement ring trends we’re loving for 2015.
There’s always a great story behind an engagement ring. Some people spend years looking at rings before finding the one, while others love the sentiment of passing down a family heirloom (speaking of which, don’t you think the rings featured below are totally heirloom-worthy?).
In any case, you wouldn’t want to lose such a cherished token of love, which is why it is important to get your ring insured.
Coverage beyond standard homeowners policies
Standard homeowners policies may only provide limited jewelry protection, often excluding jewelry damage and loss. An important part of Jewelers Mutual® coverage is the replacement of lost jewelry and repair of damages.
“Real life” covered
You live in your jewelry, and in the course of your daily life, gemstones may get loose and prongs may get damaged. If a piece of jewelry went missing, you can’t always pinpoint how or where it happened.
Jewelers Mutual covers loss, theft, damage and mysterious disappearance. And yes, the coverage applies worldwide, meaning peace of mind when you travel, whether it’s for your honeymoon or for work.
Jewelers Mutual jewelry experts, including on-staff, certified gemologists, know that the value of a diamond goes beyond the “4 C’s.” Name-brand jewelry like Cartier or Harry Winston will be replaced with jewelry of the “same kind and quality”, meaning the replacement ring would be virtually indistinguishable from the original.
Choose your own jeweler
Losing a piece of valuable jewelry is painful enough, but to add to the frustration, many homeowners and renters policies may request customers to use jewelry repair or replacement companies within their network, or to obtain several estimates before proceeding with a claim. Talk about added stress! With Jewelers Mutual, you work with your own trusted jeweler – no multiple estimates needed!
