For many, jewelry holds more than just monetary value – it often has sentimental value, as well. Whether it’s a wedding band or a family heirloom, jewelry is something we hold near and dear to our hearts. Because jewelry has intrinsic value, however, theft is common.
Stone Insurance Group doesn’t want you to fall victim to theft, so we have compiled a list of tips to ensure the security of your valuables.
Install security cameras
Installing surveillance equipment is one of the best ways to deter crime. You should strategically place security cameras at all entrances and throughout your home, as well as outside your home. Criminals are less likely to act when they know they are being watched.
Make your home less appealing to criminals
Criminals are looking for homes that would be easy to break into without drawing attention to themselves. Therefore, you should make your home less tempting. Any external security cameras should be visible to potential intruders, and your yard should be well lit.
Hide your jewelry in unexpected places
To ensure the security of your valuables, you need to think outside the box. You should consider storing your jewelry in creative or inaccessible places. Criminals are likely to search a jewelry box or vanity first, so opting to store jewelry in the bottom of a potted plant or the back of a sock drawer could serve you well.
Avoid publicizing large purchases
In order to secure your valuables, you should avoid sharing details about large purchases with others. Do not leave shopping bags by the trashcan outside your house, as it will only draw attention to your home.
Sometimes these security efforts fail, so you should insure your valuables. At Stone Insurance Group, we want to protect what matters most to you! Our agents and brokers will find a policy that suits your needs at the most affordable price. Contact us today!
