Zillion FAQs

Warranty and care plans cover defects and ongoing maintenance of your jewelry. Some may even cover damage but you’ll need Zillion in order to cover loss or theft of your jewelry, including while you travel.

While you can add jewelry to your homeowners/renters policy, it’s always better to insure with a specialty jewelry insurer like Zillion. Filing a jewelry claim with your homeowners/renters policy can put you at risk of an increased premium or cancellation of your full homeowners/renters policy. Your existing policy deductible could also apply which means you’ll pay more out of pocket. Coverage options may also be limited in not covering things like loss during travel.

Zillion provides a concierge claims experience by taking care of the repair or replacement with your retail jeweler – keeping you in the loop. As a customer of Zillion, you won’t be burdened by proving ownership of your item, verifying its value, paying a deductible, or negotiating a cash settlement. We take this opportunity to exceed your expectations and remind you why you put your trust in Zillion.

Through our embedded insurance platform and integration with partner retailers’ point of sale and eCommerce systems, Zillion is able to offer you the easiest jewelry insurance experience in the industry, and at lower rates.
