Who needs insurance for jewelry?
If you have an engagement ring or other valuable jewelry, a standalone jewelry insurance policy can protect it with specialized coverage.
While your homeowners, renters, or condo insurance may offer coverage for jewelry, you’d need to add a rider for the pieces you want insured, and making a jewelry claim could affect your entire property insurance rate. With a dedicated policy through Lavalier, you get specialized, “all risk” coverage, and your rate won’t automatically increase if you make a claim.
How does jewelry insurance work?
Jewelry insurance works by protecting you from the cost of your jewelry getting lost, damaged, or stolen. If that happens, you’ll make a claim and Lavalier will work with you and your preferred jeweler to repair or replace the piece.
You’ll have a chance to approve the repair or replacement before the claim is completed. Lavalier will pay your jeweler directly, minus your deductible (if you have one).

How much does it cost to insure jewelry?
Lavalier jewelry insurance starts at $68 per year, and it typically only costs 1–2% of your insured jewelry’s value. You’ll be able to choose your deductible and customize your rate according to your budget. Your deductible can be as low as $0 and as high as $25,000, depending on your preference and your jewelry’s value.
Lavalier offers discounts if you have a home safe or a home alarm, or if you store your jewelry in a bank vault or safe deposit box. There’s also a discount if you have a gemstone grading report.
Is jewelry insurance worth it?
Jewelry insurance can be worth it for the specialized service and coverage you get. It costs only a small fraction of the value of your jewelry, and you don’t have to worry about your overall homeowners insurance rate going up if you make a claim. Plus, Lavalier offers customized coverage and rates, and you can go to your own jeweler for repairs or replacement.
