Looking for a jewellery Insurance policy?

Jewellery Insurance from Assetsure helps protect your most valuable possessions.

For some people, covering valuable items under a home insurance policy is not a viable option. Often the sums insured are too high and the insurer does not wish to extend cover.

Now there is a solution to this situation as we at Assetsure are able to offer a stand-alone policy to cover your most precious items. We offer a jewellery insurance policy designed to cover either single items or groups of items without the need to add any other sections of cover at all. We provide a comprehensive worldwide “All Risks” policy wording and we will consider most valuations. In some cases, removing an “All Risks” section, can lead to a more competitive home policy quote and by arranging cover separately, you certainly wont have to worry about loosing your no claims discount.

Accidental Loss

The biggest worry for owners of jewellery is that an item will be lost, this can happen all too easily with small items and because of their size, they can be almost impossible to find.

Although we can never replace the sentimental value of jewellery, we can help relieve the expensive cost of having to replace an item often at short notice.

A policy from Assetsure will cover loss of the whole item or part of the item such as the stone.



Loss of stone

Precious stones get lost our cover ensures you can replace it if it’s lost.

Loss of stone

Cover against loss for all stones contained within a ring

Over time, stones in a ring can work loose and if they fall out, they are easily lost.

We cover all stones in your ring including smaller ones set on the shoulders or within the band. There is no excess to pay either so items are replaced without deduction.

Accidental Damage

Accidents happen, we ensure that your item can be repaired or replaced.

Accidental Damage

Repair or Replacement cover if you damage your Jewellery

With any item you would expect natural ageing, wear and tear but sometimes more serious damage can occur.

Jewellery items can easily be damaged and whilst Diamonds are arguably one of the hardest naturally occurring substances found on Earth, they can surprisingly be damaged, particularly if the shape is an unusual one such as in the case of pear shaped diamonds.

Claws and settings can also become damaged and broken and a “No Excess “policy from Assetsure will pay for repairs
