The Basics of Jewelry InsurancePosted: January 26, 2012
Here is an excerpt from a new blog post at GreggMarcus.com:
Jewelry is a major investment and you will want to insure your collection to protect it against theft, damage or loss. Jewelry insurance may be the finest method to ensure the safety of your heirlooms and secure your investment in the precious metals and gems. In this post, Long Island Insurance Executive, Gregg S. Marcus, discusses additional jewelry insurance and why it is so important to any jewelry collector.

If you own higher value fine jewelry (valued over $1,000), your homeowner’s insurance will likely be inadequate. For jewelry that is not adequately covered by a homeowner’s policy, additional kinds of coverage are available.
