What doesn't a rider to my homeowners insurance cover?
Depending on your policy, a rider may leave out coverage for disappearance, one of the most common causes of jewelry loss. A jewelry rider also won't have:
- Assurance that a claim won't affect coverage on your house and everything in it
- The promise to work with your jeweler, the one whom you already know and who knows your jewelry
- Jewelry experts to help you through the process

Is my jewelry covered when I travel worldwide?
Yes – you’re covered when you travel if it’s a covered type of loss (see “What’s Covered?”). But your primary home must be within the US or Canada (excluding Québec).
