First of all you should check with your agent/insurance company to see what coverages you already have. If you have items of jewelry or art work that exceed the limits you have then you should be able to specifically schedule these items for more premium on your policy. What you want to find out is what deductible you would need to pay, what causes of loss are covered, and if an appraisal of the item is needed. If your current insurance company cannot offer the extra coverage, then there are companies that will write just this type of coverage, which your agent will be aware of. It certainly wouldn’t hurt to have an appraisal and/or photos of high value jewelry and/or art work that you choose to insure.
