A Jewellery and Collectibles Insurance policy covers collections of jewellery for persons that cannot obtain cover under a home insurance policy or simply would rather have a specialist stand alone policy. Sometimes because of policy restrictions, particularly when dealing with high value sums insured, it is not possible to insure your jewellery collection with the remainder of your contents and thus an alternative arrangement must be sought most be sought.
A Specialist policy that covers collections of Jewellery
We arrange a policy which covers jewellery on a stand alone basis, offering wide cover on items of jewellery or collections. We have arranged a policy to offer world wide all risks insurance with no excess in the event of a loss and there is no restrictions on the amount of time you can spend abroad. Policies we arrange are designed for UK citizens only.
What will we cover
Almost any item of jewellery including watches, we will provide a schedule of insurance with full details of your jewellery insured and you can add and delete items throughout the policy term on a pro-rata basis (once a policy has been set up we have no administration fees and adjustments can be made quickly)
Whilst it is preferable to specify most items, for smaller valued items under a £1000.00 we can also obtain insurance on unspecified basis if you so require.
Valuations & Quotes
We consider each quote on it’s merits and are used to dealing with high sums insured quotation requests, you may fill in one of our online forms or alternative telephone our office and we can have a discussion with regard to your requirements. We can normally obtain quotations immediately or in the case, where we have to refer to underwriters, usually the same day We provide full policy documents immediately by email and all policies come with a 30 day cooling off period giving you plenty of time to review the cover.
We've got you covered...
We’ve got you covered if you mis-place or accidentally lose your jewellery.
We arrange cover for single items of jewellery or whole collections whether worn or left at home. When wearing a range of jewellery such as at a special occasion, it's easy to lose an item and if these items come as a set such as in the case of earrings, you will benefit from the "Pairs and Sets" cover Assetsure can arrange.
Under "Pairs and Sets" cover, If any items which have an increased value because they form part of a pair or set are lost (or damaged) any payment this will be taken in to account in respect of the increased value. Collections of jewellery claims are settled without deduction of any excess.
Unfortunately items get stolen, we make sure you are covered if the worst happens.
If your house is burgled, items of jewellery are amongst the items most likely to be stolen.
Whilst wearing your items, you are covered if someone steals them from you. In most cases however, the bulk of a collection of jewellery is kept at home with only a few pieces worn on a daily basis. If you are burgled, these are the items prized by thieves and most likely to be stolen. A policy arranged by Assetsure will protect you against theft with no excess to pay in the event of a claim.
If you have a large collection of Jewellery (in excess of £10,000) our insurers will expect you to have a safe at home.
Accidents happen, we ensure that your item can be repaired or replaced.
Jewellery worn regularly is prone to stones falling out.
Stones can work loose from their settings and become easily lost, especially the smaller ones set on the shoulder or the band. If this happens our in-house claims department will work with you and the insurers to arrange for replacement.
We have extensive contacts in the jewellery industry to assist with quickly returning your precious item to it's pre- loss condition.
If you have an items worth £10,000 or more, it is a requirement that the settings are checked starting two years after you first take out a policy with us. You can use a jeweller of your choice to carry out this check or we may be able to introduce you to an online valuation service.
