How can I protect them when I am away?
When you know you will be absent from home for longer periods of time, it is best to take additional safety precautions. The well-known tip of using timers to turn your lights and television on and off is a good start, but it does not stop there. You can also ask your neighbours to regularly pick up your post, spend elongated periods of time at your home or even park their car in your driveway to give the illusion of someone being at home.
You can protect your valuables even further by storing them with family or at the bank for the duration of your absence.
Which other factors should I be sure to remember?
Protecting your valuable diamond investment begins long before you even think about burglars by choosing additional insurance. Most homeowners insurance policies cover up to a certain amount, which could end up costing you when your diamonds are stolen. Likewise, it is also important to make sure to keep all purchase receipts, documents and certificates safe and separated from your investment. They will help you prove the value of your diamond investment if something should go awry. With these precautions, you not only reduce the risk of someone being able to take your diamonds, you make sure you never lose their value.
