Jewellery Cover

Your jewellery is more than just something you wear. These priceless pieces evoke memories of a special time in your life.


Whether it’s your engagement ring or a necklace passed down from your grandmother, your precious jewellery is often tied to memories of a special time and place in your life. Chubb’s extensive jewellery coverage included in our home and contents insurance policy can help cover the special pieces you’ve acquired over the years.

Individualised coverage

We offer flexible, worldwide coverage options to meet your unique needs and cover most causes of loss with no deductible. Cover an entire collection with blanket coverage, itemise your individual pieces, or do both. It’s up to you.

Optional cash settlement*

In the unfortunate event a valuable item is irreparably damaged or lost, you can choose to take cash up to the sum insured rather than replacing it if it suits you better.

Automatic coverage for new items*

If you already have itemised jewellery, newly acquired items are covered for up to 90 days (25% of the itemised coverage up to $100,000).

Paying market value*

In certain cases, we’ll pay more than the amount itemised on your policy to account for increases in market value.

*These benefits are not included in all Chubb policies. Speak to your insurance broker to find out which product is right for you.
