Jewellery Insurance

Jewellery Insurance

If you own antique or designer jewellery, a specialist policy is the best way to maximise protection for your precious items. General policies bought from mortgage lenders and high street insurers often underperform when it comes to precious items - upgrading to a specialist policy is an easy way to safeguard against such bitter disappointment. 

Only a handful of insurers provide specialist policies for discerning homeowners, and La Playa works closely with them to offer you:

  1. Lower rates: with individual risk assessments, the insurer gets a more accurate picture and you don’t pay for others’ carelessness.
  2. No restrictive small printjewellery on your dressing table may be uninsured on a standard home policy - many carry small print clauses that nullify the cover for jewellery not being worn or in a safe.
  3. Choice of jeweller for repair/replacement: would vouchers for a high-street outlet really replace your precious pieces? Some insurers insist you use their supplier to keep their costs down.
  4. Valuation advice: gold and gem prices change with fashion and trends – without good advice you could be paying too much or be under-insured. After a theft, the last thing you need is a tussle over the value of each lost piece.
  5. Extra covers: if you lose one ear-ring the insurer will replace both. And the insurer pays the pre-agreed value regardless of subsequent wear and tear or depreciation.
  6. Cash claims settlement: valuable pieces cannot easily be replaced – or it may take time. Specialist policies pay out claims in cash, so you can choose whether/how to replace.
