Jewellers Block Insurance
Qian - At the Forefront of Jeweller's Block Insurance
If you own a Jewellery Shop, then this is the most important thing that you will ever read:
Are you always worried about the safety of your stock in the Jewellery Shop?
Are you worried that a Small Fire in the Shop can destroy a lifetime worth of efforts?
Are you scared that your Jewellery Shop will be robbed in the dead of the night?
A standalone Jewellery Shop will normally contain Jewellery worth Crores of Rupees. As a result, Jewellery Shops are prime targets and prone to theft due to their valuable nature.
Consider the case of this Jeweller who got robbed in broad daylight during lunchtime.
Such incidents are very common and hence you should always secure your Jewellery Shop by purchasing a Comprehensive Jeweller’s Block Insurance Policy.
What is a Jeweller's Block Insurance Policy?
A Jeweller’s Block Insurance Policy is a Comprehensive Package Policy specially designed to cater to the needs of Jewellers and Diamantaires.
A Comprehensive Jeweller’s Block Policy provides Insurance for Losses due to Fire within Premises, Theft or Burglary within Premises or Losses which occur when the Jewellery Stock is in Custody of Directors, Employees, Brokers, Sorters etc.
Additional Insurance when you are transporting Jewellery Stock for Exhibition or Theft by Employees can also be opted for.
What are the Coverages in a Jeweller's Block Insurance Policy?
A Comprehensive Jeweller's Block Insurance Policy will Insure practically all the risks that a Jeweller faces during the course of his business.
Some of the Coverages in a Comprehensive Jeweller's Block Insurance Policy include:
Stock In Premises:
This is an All Risk Cover. This Cover provides reimbursement to the Insured Party on account of the Loss or Damage to the Jewellery when it is stored within the Premises. It will cover Losses due to Fire, Theft, Burglary, Earthquake, Flooding etc.
Stock in Custody of Directors, Partners, Employees:

This section will cover any Theft or Burglary of the Jewellery that will happen when it is in the Custody of the Directors or Partners of the Company.

Stocks in Exhibition:
Jewellers frequently display their Jewellery in various Exhibitions around the Country. These Exhibitions are risky in the sense that a lot of people visit them, thus making it susceptible to Theft. A Comprehensive Jeweller’s Block Insurance will cover for Losses that happen during Exhibitions as well.
Fidelity Guaranty (Theft by Employees):
This Section covers for the loss that is suffered by the Employer on account of Fraud or Dishonesty committed by Employees in respect of the Money or the Jewellery Stock stored within the Jewellery Shop.
