  • Be careful who you show your jewellery to
  • Buy a small safe to keep valuable and sentimental items in and secure it to a wall or solid floor
  • Do not keep large amounts of jewellery at home if possible
  • Do not keep valuable jewellery on display
  • Take a photo of each item on a dark background and keep a receipt of when an item was bought
  • Inform your insurance company of any items of high value
