Whom is jewellery insurance for?
People often think that insurance is for wealthy individuals who own very expensive pieces of jewellery. And in practice, that is oftentimes the case. Mostly high-end jewellery is ensured, often starting at prices of £ 25 000 and upwards. But insurance can be for anyone who owns valuables such as gold jewellery, watches and more. The value does not have to be very high, even your £ 500 watch and your £ 300 earrings are completely worth having an insurance.
Why is insurance for your gold jewellery needed?
A specific jewellery insurance is useful for various reasons. Insurance covers a variety of situations that go beyond theft, nowadays it also includes damage and loss. Losing, for instance, a pair of earrings, or even just one, has happened to many of us. Then there is the possibility of damage, if you are a very active person, for instance, you could snap your necklace while exercising or damage a prong on your gold ring by accidentally hitting a hard surface.
Then, of course, there is the worst-case scenario if your gold jewellery gets stolen. It is a very frustrating situation and although insurance does not cover the irreplaceable sentimental value of an object, it gives you a little financial reassurance.
