Already have a Direct Line Contents Insurance policy?

You can add specific valuable items of jewellery to your Direct Line Contents Insurance by speaking to one of our agents.

Please be aware, you won’t be able to make a claim for the same item on both the standalone Direct Line Jewellery and Watch Insurance and a Direct Line home insurance policy


Jewellery and Watch Insurance

If you need to insure jewellery and watches worth £3,000 or more, our standalone insurance could be just what you need.

You don’t need to have your home insurance with us, and we can cover your jewellery and watches up to a total of £50,000.

We know sometimes covering your jewellery and watches under your home insurance isn't an option, which is why we offer higher cover for your individual items with our standalone insurance.

Reasons to choose standalone Jewellery and Watch Insurance:

  • Worldwide cover
    Whether you’re at home, out and about or on holiday abroad, your valuables will be covered.
    Limited to 60 consecutive days.
  • You don’t need to be an existing customer
    Our Jewellery and Watch insurance is open to everyone
    You don’t need to be an existing customer or take out any other Direct Line insurance policy.
  • Complete peace of mind
    Your prized possessions, such as engagement rings and watches, will be insured against accidental damage, loss and theft.

Check your existing home insurance to make sure you're not already insured and give us a ring.
