Before you Walk Down the Red Carpet at the Oscars…Read This

In 2018, Oceans 8 came out as a follow up to the well-received heist series of movies that originated with Oceans 11 and the powerhouse George Clooney/Matt Damon/Brad Pitt trio. Its newest iteration somewhat glorifies the mastery of “the perfect heist”, starring Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Rihanna, Sarah Paulson, Mindy Kaling and more. This star studded cast tells the story of the attempted heist of a necklace worth in excess of $150,000,000 – being worn by an actress at the infamous Met Gala.

With #oscarnoms dominating today’s feed, we wanted to bring this movie concept to life – recognizing that the beautiful jewelry and accessories donning the red carpet aren’t being worn without insurance. Check out this New York Times article by Paul Sullivan describing the challenges of insuring millions of dollars of jewelry for an event of this magnitude.

While you may not be donning a Valentino down the red carpet this year, ask yourself if your jewelry, fine art, wine, or other price(less) items are protected against theft or loss. You may have some coverage under your homeowners’ policy – but often, and especially if not scheduled separately and appraised often, you may not have enough. Contact Brix Brokerage today to learn more and make sure your most valuable personal property is accounted for.
