Crime Insurance

Jewellery stores have a theft exposure. Some would agree that the exposure is large, whereas others say the exposure is low. This is all dependent on your security measures that you have in place.Do you have CCTV? An alarm that goes back to a security company? Do you have roller doors, or bars on the windows? Is your store inside a shopping centre with no external openings manned by a security company after hours?Depending on the answer to these questions, this will provide us with a good indication of your theft exposure.

Theft of your contents & stock

Theft Insurance for a jewellery store is quite expensive. You will find that it will be more than likely that you will opt fo small amount of jewellery to be covered, with the remainder of the theft limit to cover contents items like laptops, phones, computers etc for theft.

Theft of money

Money cover is available under a business package policy. You can elect to insure the limit of your choice. Some insurers have a lower sublimit for money on site after hours. As such, it is best to avoid having large sums of money at your store overnight.

Theft By Employees

Public & Products Liability Insurance

Public Liability Insurance can protect your business in the instance that you had a customer injure themselves as a result of your negligence.

Public Liability Insurance would pay for the defence costs to represent you in court if they believe you weren't negligent. If there was a clear case of negligence, your insurer will negotiate with the claimant a compensation settlement figure.In the off chance that your jewellery items injure the public, your policy will respond in a similiar way to the above mentioned scenario.
