What Does Insurance for Jewellery Manufacturers Include?
Why do Jewellery Makers need Public Liability Insurance?
Public Liability Insurance is designed to protect you against Personal Injury or Property Damage to Third parties that arise from your activities as a Jewellery Maker and/or importer.
Here are Some Examples;
Say you’re selling at a market, and a customer trips on the table cloth you’ve used to help display your gorgeous necklaces (they were too busy being in awe of them ;)). They hurt themselves on the way down and hold you liable.
Or maybe you’re selling at your shop and an A-Frame Sign that you use blows into the Parked Car of a customer out front. This causes Property Damage to their vehicle, and they hold you accountable. In these two instances, your Public Liability Insurance will help cover the costs.
Why do Jewellery Manufacturers need Product Liability Insurance?
Products Liability Insurance is designed to protect you against Personal Injury and Property Damage to third parties that arise from the products you sell as a Jewellery Manufacturer.
Here’s Some Examples;
You sell an absolutely beautiful set of your silver rings to a customer. Somehow, the set reacts to their skin, causing rashes around their fingers. They need time off work while they recover, and hold you accountable.
A customer accidentally cuts themselves on a jagged part of your Jewellery after purchasing. This causes bodily injury, and they hold you accountable. In these two instances, your Product Liability Insurance will help cover the costs.
Here are some of our FAQ
Yes absolutely, you can include permanent jewellery in your policy. During the application form, you will be asked, if you require this additional coverage.
However, there are some hoops to jump through and essential safety requirements:
Safety Gear: When applying permanent jewellery, you’ll need to adhere to safety guidelines, including the use of safety goggles during the application process for both yourself and the customer.
Skin Protection: To safeguard your customers, a leather patch must be placed between their skin and the application area.
Australian-Sourced Equipment: All equipment used for permanent jewellery services must be sourced from within Australia.
Regular Maintenance: Equipment used in the application process must be regularly maintained to ensure its proper functioning.
By meeting these safety requirements, you can enjoy comprehensive coverage for your permanent jewellery business. Feel free to contact us if you have any further questions.
Yes, of course. Jewellery repairs are an expected activity of a jeweller (plus, in many cases your bread and butter 😏)
The definition of Manufacturing is the process of converting raw materials, components, or parts into finished goods. For Insurance purposes you are deemed to be the Jewellery Maker/Manufacturer when you Create or Modify pieces of Jewellery. For example, if you are purchasing pre-made Jewellery for retail, but make any modifications to that piece (engraving, relabelling, repackaging etc), you are deemed the manufacturer.
Also, if you’re directly importing your Jewellery from overseas, under Australian Law you are deemed the Manufacturer.

Implications of Cancelling your Product Liability Cover.
Products Liability is an occurrence-based wording. This means, the insurance needs to be in place at the time the incident occurred for there to be a valid claim.
If you cancel your insurance today and an incident is notified and/or occurs tomorrow for a product or service you provided last week, you will not be covered. Read more on this here.
