16 October 2013, 16:00

Jewellery worth £200,000 has been stolen from a house in Westoning in Bedfordshire.

The burglars forced their way into the house on Church Road on Thursday (October 10) between 1pm and 2.45pm.

They made their way straight to the bedroom where the jewellery, including a collection of watches, was kept leaving the rest of the house untouched.

Sarah Wayman told Heart the luxury items were gifts her and her husband had brought for each other over the last 20 years 

She says they both work very hard and brought the jewellery as an investment for their two children.

"Its all of really great sentimental value to us and someone decided that they should take it and they should have it, why should they work like we've worked when they could just come into other peoples homes and take it"

Items taken include:

  • White gold and diamond crucifix about three and a half inches long on a white gold chain
  • Gents yellow gold crucifix with single half-carat diamond inset 
  • Platinum solitaire diamond ring
  • Ladies gold ring with semi-precious blue stone
  • Platinum gents eternity ring set with 20 diamonds
  • White gold gents ring set with seven diamonds
  • A yellow gold Cartier ladies watch
  • A rare TAG Monaco gents chronograph watch with white face and white strap
  • Hank Muller 1200TV gold chronograph watch
  • Omega Seamaster watch
  • Parmijiana Pershing gents watch with a light blue face
  • Brietling chronograph gold and steel gents watch
  • Bvlgari gents 4-banded ring in white gold
  • Red faced chronograph watch
  • White gold cufflinks with blue sapphire in the corners
  • At least 20 sets of cufflinks of varying designs     

Detective Constable Verity McCann is investigating the case, and says: 

“We’re hoping someone has seen these items being offered for sale or knows where they are. Although the items are very valuable, unfortunately the couple are not insured for most of the value of this jewellery. 

"Some items are  irreplaceable, being rare or made to order and of great sentimental value to them.” 

Police are asking anyone who can help them with information about the burglary or can assist with information about the jewellery to contact Detective Constable McCann at Bedford CID on 01234 275212.
