There are independent insurance carriers for this, and some stores sell policies on jewelry they sell.


However, your cheapest and easiest solution is likely to be either a rider (like an addition or amendment) on your Homeowners or Renter's insurance - you just pay so much extra on your policy premium to add so much coverage. Typically flat rate for up to $1000-5000 of jewelry depending on carrier - ours is 2.5% of the rider coverage amount.


Another way, which is sometimes cheaper so ask, is a PAI Policy - Personal Articles Insurance. Is a separate policy, though normally only available in conjunction with an existing homeowqners or renter's policy from same company. Covers against fire, theft, loss like a rider on your homeowner's policy, but rate may be different - ours is actually lower with better coverage on items. PAI policies are not pushed by the insurance companies, but are VERY useful, because typically they do not carry a deductible - or a very small one like $100, as opposed to the rider on your homeowner's/renter's policy which will have the same deductible as the rest of your policy. They can also cover things like computers and such (though not small handheld devices), and also cover accidental breakage like from dropping it. Terrific for things like laptops (and jewelry) that you take out of the house frequently.


PS - will likely need purchase receipt for the insurance company to insure it - otherwise (or maybe in addition) they will want an appraisal from a certified jeweler.
