GemShield®

GemShield® is a program offered exclusively through Wexler Insurance / IJB that provides worldwide insurance protection for your customers. Both you and your customer can feel confident knowing that any covered loss sustained by your customer will be replaced by you, the jeweler they trust.

We will provide you with free customer kits that include a folder, application, brochure, rate card and return envelope. Your customer fills out the application, calculates the premium with the provided rates based on the retail sales price plus sales tax, then signs and dates it. You either include a brief description of the item or attach an appraisal or sales receipt. Once the application is in the mail with a check for the full year's premium in the return envelope, your customer is covered as of 12:01 a.m. that day. It's that simple!! They can walk out of your store insured. If there are any questions, your customer calls us directly at 1-866-207-9428.

This exciting program can help your bottom line. Every year prior to your customer's renewal date we send a letter
advising them to bring their item(s) in for an annual check-up and value assessment. This provides you with another opportunity to see your customers and perhaps make additional sales. In the event of a loss, your customers will be sent back to you to have their jewelry repaired or replaced. You will receive an agreed fee for handling each replacement.

Not only can we insure the individual jewelry items that you sell, but customers may also insure other jewelry items they own. They can simply bring their other jewelry items to your store for your professional appraisal and complete our application.

GemShield® coverage is provided by an insurance company licensed in all 50 states. Wexler Insurance / IJB acts as a licensed agent/ broker for GemShield®.
