Melbourne police are on the look out for thieves who recently stole a large collection of Indian jewellery believed to be valued up to $1 million from a private residence in Malvern East.
The missing collection includes the pictured selection of mostly 22 carat gold items.
The other missing items are all made from 22 carat yellow gold and include a large white sapphire pendant, an antique pendant inlaid with diamonds and rubies, a ruby bangle, a pair of peacock shaped earrings, a ring with a missing pearl, a ring inlaid with imitation diamonds and a ruby-like stone, and a three-strand necklace featuring tiny pearls and black stones.
Detective Senior Constable Gareth Howells said that although the jewellery was not insured and hasn’t been valued by a professional, the victims believe it could be worth up to $1 million as some of the items date back to around 1820.
He said police had a “person of interest” but no evidence to lay charges.
If you have any information on the missing items please contact Detective Senior Constable Gareth Howells on (03) 9520 5216 or email firstname.lastname@example.org quoting event number 090022512.
