Two houses in Oakfield Road were also broken into the following Thursday (March 4) between 4.45pm and 10.30pm and various items taken again, including jewellery and a Spanish horse ornament.
Photos of the stolen items include a crystal necklace and matching earrings, mesh design earrings with yellow, white and rose gold, an 18 carat white gold and diamond necklace with crucifix and Dior blue butterfly dangled earrings.
Photos of a gold bracelet, a white gold ring with blue sapphires and diamonds, a Patek Felippe 18 carat gold and diamond watch, and a crystal-topped ring with small diamonds on a band under crystal have also been issued.
