Jewelry

Gems, gold, silver and other precious items worn as personal accessories. Jewelry is often worn on a daily basis, and is also kept as a family heirloom (and worn rarely). Because jewelry is both small and expensive, it is a target for thieves and may easily be lost. Some jewelry owners purchase jewelry insurance, which protects against these possibilities.
