Questions for your insurance agent:

We feel that consumer expectations on their policies can be better defined by having reasonable information at the time they purchased a policy. The following are suggested questions you may like to know in advance:

In regards to the Jewelry Appraisal Report:

  • What kind of appraisal report would your insurance company need?
  • How important it is to have a full certified appraisal report, with a full description of items?
  • Considering the inflation rate and the changes in the jewelry market conditions, how often should I have this appraisal report updated?

In regards to your policy:

  • What items should I have appraised? Your homeowner's insurance policy may offer a general and limited protection for your jewelry. Please read these restrictions in your policy.
  • What kind of coverage do I have for jewelry valued under $300.00, $500.00, etc.
  • If I only appraise and buy coverage for the most expensive jewelry in a collection, what would happen if the other items are lost or stolen? How do I prove ownership, description, quality and values for those lower price articles? What kind of limiting condition my policy will have for these articles?
  • What is the difference between schedule and unscheduled coverage?
  • Is there a deductible? If so, how much? How does it work in case of a claim? Do I have the option to increase the deductible to reduce the premium cost?
  • Is my policy all-risk? (Par loss, damage, mysterious disappearance, negligence or carelessness etc.)?
  • Is the item covered if lost (total or partial lost), stolen or damaged while in the possession of someone else?
  • Are there any geographical limitations to my coverage?
  • What exactly does it means to have replacement value on my jewelry. Am I limited to the valued listed at the appraisal report?

In case of a loss...

  • If there is a loss, do I have a choice of a full cash-out or will I have to accept less?
  • Can I go to whomever I wish for the replacement of my jewelry? If not, why not?
  • Can I expect to replace the lost jewelry with same quality and from the same manufacturer jewelry company? What a trademarked jewelry is replaced?
  • If a loss has been replaced through an insurance company source, will I be allowed to verify proper replacement of quality and value by an independent firm or accredited appraiser?
  • What procedure will be followed to replace a family heirloom, one-of-a-kind piece of jewelry, an antique or custom made jewelry?
  • What proof, documentation is needed by your adjustor to document a claim?
