I'm trying to plan a module where the players have to get an artifact to tell if someone is lying, like once per day.
But ones that just improves insight by 10 would be nice.
Does anyone know of any?

Discern Lies, the ritual. PH1:
Make a Religion check. Use the result as a bonus to your Insight checks to discern any untruths spoken in your presence during the duration. If anyone aided you while performing this ritual, they can’t help you make the resulting Insight checks.
There are many items which allow you to cast a ritual through them and act as a free focus 1/day. These can be found in Dragon 387, if you want a model.
If you want an item that can perform what you want, it should be a level 6 uncommon, property: grants the owner the ability to use the discern lies ritual as if they had mastered it and have trained religion. (Net +16 or so to insight checks).
Daily: Perform the discern lies ritual for free.
After a quick search through the Compendium, I've yet to find any that have more than a +6 bonus to insight even up to level 30 items.
Still, feel free to houserule your own artifact into the game if you think that big of a bonus is appropriate for your module. That's the spirit of DnD!
An artifact from Mordenkainen's Magnificent Emporium, it gives a static +10 to insight if it is Satisfied or higher with the wearer.
