Whatever the reason, having the right insurance can provide cover for your items in the event of accidental loss, damage or theft (both within your home or away). Exploring your jewellery insurance options – including the ins and outs of insuring what’s precious to you can be difficult. This guide to jewellery insurance options should help you in your decision.
Your jewellery collection is unique, and it is made to be worn, not hidden away! That is why every Centrestone Jewellery Insurance policy comes with policy features that have been specifically tailored for portable jewellery cover in the home and outside of your home. Centrestone Jewellery Insurance ensures that in the event of damage, loss or theft – your item is repaired back to its original condition or you receive a like-for-like replacement in the event of total loss.
Some home and contents insurance policies do not allow for jewellery to be covered outside the home unless the items are individually specified which attracts an additional premium. If you are considering insuring with your home and contents provider be sure to check if you are covered for theft under portable valuables cover extension.
Making a claim under home and contents insurance will generally incur a large excess and mean losing your no-claims bonus for years to come. Centrestone has a $0 excess and our premiums stay the same, even after a claim.
You can check on the Centrestone difference in our PDS. We cover accidental damage, loss or theft anywhere in the world.
Knowing the value of what you want to cover is a helpful first step when deciding which insurance type is right for you. It’s also important if you ever need to make a claim – more on that later.

How do you prove the value of your jewellery at claims time? It all depends on the specific item—but for most items, simply show a receipt or valuation certificate along with photo proof of the item when you make a claim. And if you think a jewellery item has been stolen, don’t forget to notify the police and include their report in your claim. There may be minimum proof requirements for your specific claim, so read the Product Disclosure Statement to be in the know!
No excess fee will apply to all jewellery claims. Centrestone Jewellery Insurance charges no excess fee on all claims. To learn more about your excess, read the Product Disclosure Statement.
Most insurers will offer a replacement for your jewellery items, however, many times this means that the insurer will send the replacement of your jewellery to the jeweller who quoted the least amount. This can lead to less than an ideal outcome. At Centrestone Jewellery Insurance we send jewellery job claims to the jeweller of your choice, in fact, it is written in our PDS. What this means is that in the event of a claim, the replacement of your jewellery goes back to your jeweller.
