For insurance purposes, fine jewelry is evaluated against the replacement value of the retail trade, the comparable replacement cost in the retail market.
Finding balance is a call to personal judgment. Knowing how much your jewelry is worth is crucial before you buy insurance. If you’re recently engaged or married, the store where you bought bridal jewelry should be able to provide a written evaluation.
