Police are hoping details of jewellery stolen during a Harpenden burglary will prompt information on the thieves.

The break-in took place in Station Road between 9.30pm on December 22 and 1.30pm on December 28th, after thieves gained access to the property via a rear window.

Items stolen included a white gold wedding band, with five or six diamonds spread evenly around in a zigzag pattern and with an engraving of ‘D&K’ and a date; a 21 carat yellow gold chain necklace in a blue box; a white gold eternity ring, with five or six square cut diamonds; and a white gold engagement band, with yellow gold inset for the diamond, which is tarnished with an air bubble on the back of the diamond setting.

Investigating officer Det Con Paul Cullinan said: “The jewellery taken is of great sentimental value to the victims of this burglary. It is also quite distinctive, particularly the wedding and engagement bands. I would appeal to anyone who knows of the items’ whereabouts, or has been offered them for sale, to contact me immediately.

“Equally, I would ask that if anyone saw anything suspicious in the area between the Sunday and Saturday to contact me as they could have information that could assist the investigation.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Det Con Cullinan via Hertfordshire Constabulary’s non-emergency number 101, citing crime reference number F2/13/1640. Alternatively, call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
