Are Your Valentines Gifts Covered?

Are Your Valentines Gifts Covered?

It is that time of year when many of us give that special person in our lives a gift that they will enjoy year-round. Valentine’s gifts typically include watches, jewelry, art, cameras, and other valuable items. Examples of items that will need special coverage

  • Guns
  • ATV’s
  • Boats
  • Jewelry
  • Art
  • Collections of stamps, books, or coins
  • Expensive wine
  • Antiques

Whatever you may do this year, if you purchase a costly item for that special person, make sure you get it insured. Most homeowners or renter’s insurance policies restrict coverage for items like jewelry to $1,000 dollars. In addition, most policies cover named perils for fire and theft, etc.; however, they may exclude coverage for the ring that gets flushed down the toilet; that is unless the expensive item is scheduled. To cover such circumstances that the insurance industry has dubbed “mysterious disappearance”, you will need a valuable article’s personal property endorsement on your homeowners or renter’s policy.

Tips to keep valuables safe

  • Have your jewelry appraised by a qualified jewelry appraiser for insurance replacement purposes
  • Take pictures
  • Keep items in a safe place
  • Take off while working outside
