SaferGems is a UK initiative against crime in the Jewellery, Pawnbroker, Arts and Antiques industry. It was introduced in 2009 following a concern about the increase in crime committed against the jewellery industry.

It is intended to collate attacks, suspicious incidents and intelligence in relation to jewellery crime around the whole of the UK. It is funded by the jewellery Industry through the National Association of Jewellers and TH March Insurance Brokers and is hosted by The British Security Industry Association.
