If you’re selling jewelry, you’re running a business. And you likely need to protect it the same way you protect your home, vehicle, and health — with insurance coverage.
Accidents can happen in any business, so it’s best to be prepared with insurance coverage. As a jewelry maker, having business insurance before something goes wrong may save you time, money, and stress in the long run.
Your jewelry is unique, and so is your business. The types of insurance coverage you might need will depend on many factors.
Here are a few questions to consider:
Choosing insurance may seem daunting, but we can make the process less stressful. We work with small business owners to understand their specific needs so we can provide among the best insurance solutions.
Here are the policies we recommend looking into:
As a jewelry maker, you turn gemstones and metals into hand-crafted earrings, rings, pins, necklaces, and more. You may not think there’s much risk involved with being an artisan, but accidents can happen anytime, anywhere. That’s why general liability insurance (“GL”) coverage is so important.
A GL policy typically covers third-party bodily injury, third-party property damage, and other third-party accidents. A “third party” could be your customers and vendors. Say a customer comes into your jewelry store, slips and falls on your freshly-waxed floor, and breaks her arm.
Without insurance, you’d likely need to pay your customer’s medical bills, and legal costs if she were to sue you. The average claim for property damage or accidents in small businesses is $30,000. Just think of how many precious gemstones you could buy with that money.
Here’s where general liability insurance can benefit you. It could help pay your customer’s medical expenses and the costs of damages or legal fees up to your policy’s limit.
General liability insurance typically covers:
General liability insurance does not cover:
Do you have full-time, part-time, or temporary employees? If so, you may need workers’ compensation insurance. Most states require business owners with employees to have this type of coverage, so check your state’s laws to be sure you know the requirements.
Workers' compensation can cover the costs of employee injury or illness while on the job. So having this coverage is usually a smart business move, even if your state doesn’t require it.
In general, workers' compensation insurance for jewelers can cover:
If you use the internet for your business and electronically store information, we recommend cyber insurance to protect your jewelry business from cyberattacks. Small businesses can be targets for this type of criminal activity, because they often collect and store customer data such as personal and payment information.
Businesses that suffer cyberattacks can face devastating financial consequences, because a cyberattack usually requires a business to respond to the event in multiple ways, which can be expensive and time-consuming.
For example, a small business owner may be responsible for:
Cyberattacks can wreak havoc on a small business. Knowing you have cyber insurance to cover costs, including legal fees, can help you focus on addressing the problem and taking care of your business and customers.
Here’s what cyber insurance usually covers:
Cyber liability insurance usually does not cover:
Your jewelry maker insurance coverage will depend on the policy or policies you choose. If you need multiple policies, we recommend that you consider bundling your policies into one insurance plan customized to fit your business’s needs. The coverages we’ve outlined can protect you from the most significant risks and liabilities you may face as a jewelry maker.
If you opt for all the suggested policies above, your jewelry maker insurance plan can cover:
Third-party bodily injury
Loss and damage to business property

Most states don’t require jewelry makers to have business insurance. But if you rent a physical space, your property manager might request that you have commercial general liability coverage. This plan can protect you if there’s an accident, injury, or loss on the property.
If you have employees, you’ll likely need workers' comp coverage, as most states require it.
Business owners can usually deduct insurance premiums from their income tax. However, we always recommend that you talk to an accountant or tax advisor to make sure.
The amount of coverage you might need can rely greatly on your specific business, so it’s tough to give an exact answer that can apply to every jewelry maker. The level of coverage that’s right for your business depends on:
