I lost my wedding and engagement rings. Does anyone know if your home insurance will cover it under personal possessions?

  • Our does up to a certain amount. I think it's $10,000 after that you have to have extra insurance for anything more valuable.

  • I thought you have to have them listed separately. I know I had about 4 rings appraised by a jeweler and then I called my insurance and added them to my plan. I would call your insurance to find out ASAP!! GOOD LUCK!!!

  • I think it does but only for a certain amount. I have an individual insurance policy attached to our homeowners for my engagement ring. I had to have it appraised and everything.

  • We have a rider on our homeowners insurance for high value items.

  • Oh no, I am so sorry. That would just make me sick! We had to have a separate policy for my ring. But it would not hurt to ask.  I hope for your sake it does.

  • We have up to a certain dollar value that our homeowners will cover and after that you have to have a rider policy for the jewelry.

  • I think they have to be listed separate, I know State Farm does. We have a separate policy for my wedding rings.
