Your customers have a choice

Customers often believe jewelry can only be insured under a homeowner’s policy. After a loss occurs, your customers may feel frustrated when they can’t utilize you, their jeweler, to replace a treasured possession. There are often questions about the replacement not meeting the standards and quality of the original piece.

Many homeowner’s policies may not insure items or schedules over $10,000. The GemShield program allows your customers to insure any one item up to $35,000 or any schedule up to $100,000. Larger items or schedules can be considered after review and acceptance of the application.

Your customers have a choice and so do you! The GemShield program provides worldwide protection while traveling and peace of mind for you and your customers. Your customers are assured that they can work with you, the jeweler they trust.


How the program works

We provide you with free customer informational cards that direct your customers to a website where they can get an insurance quote in less than a minute. If they approve of the quote, they can apply for insurance online in just minutes.

You provide your customer with an appraisal or detailed sales receipt. Once the application has been submitted with payment, your customer is covered. It’s that simple! If there are any questions, your customer calls us directly at 866-207-9428.

Join the GemShield program as a participating jeweler. We will refer anyone who inquires about the GemShield program, either from our website or mentions an informational card from your store, to you.


The GemShield program helps build relationships

We are interested in helping your bottom line! Every year prior to your customer’s renewal date we send a letter advising them to bring their item(s) in for an annual check-up and value assessment. What an opportunity for you to make your customer happy again by selling them another beautiful piece of jewelry. In the event of a loss, your customers can come back to you to have their jewelry repaired or replaced. You will receive an agreed fee for handling each replacement.

Not only can we insure the individual jewelry items that you sell, but customers may insure other jewelry items they own. They simply bring their other jewelry items to your store for your professional confirmation of the valuation and description so they can complete the online application. We want to make sure you are able to replace their jewelry if they have a loss.
