Everyone has their own style, weather it’s jewelry, furs, fine arts, cameras, musical instruments, stamps, coins, etc…but all of these items have a limited value on your homeowners policy.
This is only part of a sample HO policy. You may have more or less coverage depending on your own policy. Each company write their policies differently. If you have something that you are concerned about losing whether it is due to theft or you losing it. Make sure you have it property insured.
A quick call to your independent insurance agent could let you know if your new piece of jewelry, camera lens, or coin is included in your policy, or if it might need it’s own policy to be properly insured.
