“Jewellery is often covered under your home insurance policy up to a specific value," Confused.com insurance expert Jessica Willock said in a news release. "If your items exceed this value, they would need to be declared separately. Make sure you check with your insurer to see if you’re covered when taking out your policy, to keep high-value items suitably protected.”
