Some of your possessions are much easier to replace than others. If the TV breaks down, you just head to the nearest electrical store and buy a new one. If your camera stops working you can take it to somebody who can fix it for you. It’s a different situation with jewelry though, because whether or not it’s an heirloom piece from your grandmother, or jewelry bought for you as a child, it carries a lot more emotional weight and significant value in that regard.

Losing a piece of jewelry can feel really tragic, and while you can take it to sites such as for cleaning, what do you plan to do if it gets last? Safeguarding your precious items in your memory box is important so that you can preserve the memories as much as you can preserve the piece. With this in mind, here are some of the reasons that you should insure your jewelry properly.

  • If you lose it you can replace it. Of course, you cannot replace the memories or the history that comes with heirloom pieces. But if you have bought a diamond ring for somebody and that goes missing, you’ll be able to get that replaced. What would happen if you lost your engagement ring? Can you get the equivalent replacement for the same value? Without insurance you might not be able to and even with things such as home or contents insurance, you may not be able to get the same value.
  • You know how valuable your jewelry is. All jewelry pieces carry some kind of value. The gemstones, the metals and other materials are all worth something. If it’s been a long time since you purchased your piece of jewelry, you may actually be quite unaware of how much it would cost to replace it because the value can change overtime. With the right insurance though, your jewelry can be revalued every year and it doesn’t have to cost much on top. This means that you will always have enough coverage and you can make sure that it’s covered to the right amount.
  • You don’t have to panic about taking it out of the house. If you absolutely adore your engagement ring and it was quite an expensive piece, then you might be nervous about taking it abroad or anywhere that’s outside your house. Between security at the airport being an issue and taking your engagement ring in the ocean, you might consider that travel might be a bit too dangerous for jewelry. If you are properly insured however, you can take your engagement ring or your wedding band wherever you want to go in the world.
  • Insurance can really give you Peace of Mind. Nobody expects or wants the diamonds of their settings to pop out. And yet accidents happen. You cannot prepare for something to go wrong because you don’t know when it’s going to happen. But you can prepare for the just in case scenario. Having insurance covers you in that case, and you wouldn’t believe some of the diamonds that get found in the sewer systems because people have lost them and never get them back.
