How you can protect your jewelry

With the holidays past us and Valentine’s Day approaching, now is a good time to talk about how you can protect your jewelry. 

You should have your jewelry appraised every 2-3 years if you have items worth $100,000 or more, or if the jewelry contains diamonds of 3 carats or more. 

Sixty-eight percent of burglars look specifically for jewelry during a break-in. Don’t place your jewelry in obvious places where burglars will look, such as in a jewelry box in the master bedroom or bathroom. Although inconvenient to access, your most valuable jewelry should be kept in a bank vault or an in-house safe. 

Another good idea is to spread out your jewelry in multiple safe spots throughout the house. Typically, burglars will spend only 10 minutes in the house. If the items are in different locations, they will be harder to find quickly. 

We highly recommend an alarm system. Burglars avoid 60 percent of homes with alarms
