What is Jewelers Block Insurance?
Jewelers Block Insurance is coverage that protects against physical loss or damage to precious and semi-precious stones, jewels, jewelry, precious metals and other related property typical to the jewelry trade, including the property of others entrusted to the insured as well as property of an insured entrusted to others.
