Keep your jewellery and valuables safe with these simple precautions:

» Keep all your valuables in a safe and secure location and locked up in such as a safety deposit box.

» Preferably don't keep valuables at home.

» Make photographic records of all your jewellery and valuables by taking photos on a plain background with a ruler next to them as this helps give an idea of size.

» Also keep a list of all jewellery and valuable items with a description of them.

»  Consider registering your valuable items with a registration company.

» If buying jewellery as a gift do not leave the packaging on display.

» Keep your home secure at all times.

» Check all doors are locked and all windows, including those upstairs, are secure before you go out or go to bed

» Use timer switches on lamps to give the impression somebody is at home or keep a light on in the evening if you go out

» Consider installing alarms and 'dusk to dawn' security lighting

» Consider the installation of a CCTV camera outside your property

» When leaving the property remove keys from locks and place out of sight
