FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What will JewelCover protect my jewellery against?
A JewelCover policy provides coverage against loss and damage to your jewellery. If your jewellery is lost, stolen or damaged, with Q Report you can make a claim to have your jewellery replaced or repaired.
Why should I choose JewelCover over other providers?
At JewelCover, we live and breathe jewellery. We come from a jewellery background and understand that most people have an emotional connection with their jewellery. Most providers don't get that.
Is jewellery insurance essential if I have home contents insurance?
The level of coverage provided by home contents insurance will differ in each person's unique circumstance. But in our experience, it would be best for you to read the fine print or call your insurer about your coverage. If you are unsatisfied with your insurer or level of coverage, feel free to call us anytime.
My jewellery came with a warranty. Do I need jewellery Insurance?
Warranty and Insurance are two very different things. Warranty is included when you purchase a new product but for only a limited time. Warranty aims to cover the consumer from any manufacturing defects. While on the other hand insurance covers you from damage, loss and theft.
What does an “Agreed Value” policy mean?
"Agreed Value" means that in the case of a claim being approved for a total loss, we pay the full sum insured amount on your policy. Many insurers won’t pay the full amount shown on your policy if they can replace your item for less money by using words such as "you are insured up to the sum insured”.
We don't trick you. We keep it clear and simple.
What does it mean by Worldwide Cover?

Don’t Take Our Word For It
My experience was perfect, they kept me updated after I forwarded the information. I thought the premium was reasonable. Raff whom I dealt with was extremely helpful, and great to deal with.
Very easy process to get our expensive jewellery covered, and friendly service to go with it. Highly recommended.
I spoke with Josette at JewelCover. She was so efficient and friendly. Answered multiple questions and replied quickly to emails which was easy while I was at work. Made the whole process super easy to insure our Gem.
