Do I need insurance for my Jewellery business?

As a jewellery expert, a key part of ensuring the safety of your assets, and your business, is to organise insurance for your jewellery business. There are a range of different options to consider when finding the right solution, depending on how you make and sell your products.


Public Liability

Public liability insurance offers you cover if anything in connection with your business – products, venues, or otherwise – is responsible for injury or damage to property of a third party.

Product Liability

This applies to all jewellery makers and manufacturers. This is because it applies specifically to your product. Essentially, if a product that you have sold is responsible for the injury of another person, you may be held liable for that injury. Product liability insurance for your jewellery business will cover you if a claim of that nature arises –whether that’s in the form of compensation or finding the money to cover legal fees.

Employer’s Liability

This insurance is designed to cover you if an employee makes a claim against you relating to their safety or health. This type of insurance is compulsory for all UK businesses that employ other people, so it is vital that you take out this kind of cover to protect from any potential claims made against you by employees.

Tradesmen Insurance

Tradesmen insurance applies to a lot of small jewellery business owners, simply because it applies to any business owner that does not have a traditional retail premises. So, if you primarily work from home, this type of insurance will offer you the cover required for your tools, and any potential liability that may arise on your premises. 

Professional Indemnity

This kind of insurance is designed to cover you if you offer advice or consultancy as part of your business. Do you offer a valuations service? Then this kind of cover may apply to you. This kind of cover will provide you with protection against claims brought against you for professional negligence.

What other limitations should you look out for before taking out a jewellery business policy?

  • Thinking about selling on eBay? In that case, you may need more than just a home worker’s policy. You will not necessarily be covered if your designs are sold to a customer outside the UK.
  • Intend on attending craft fairs? Make sure the amount you attend is not capped and that your policy extends to selling at events.
  • Have an event coming up in the next couple of weeks? Make sure your insurance provider is able to send out your policy and insurance certificate via email to ensure you have all the records required to sell at your next event.

Unsure which types of insurance are best for your jewellery business?  Speaking with one of our advisors can help you to choose your insurance policy with confidence. So you can rest assured that you’re covered and continue to focus on designing, promoting and selling your latest collections.
