Nearly 70 pieces of jewellery have been taken during a high value burglary at a property in the Flitwick area on the afternoon of 23 March.

It is possible the offenders may by now be trying to sell items on and DC Lou Howard from the divisional Priority Crime Investigation Team (PCIT) wants shops, dealers, pawn brokers and the public to be on the alert.

The men and women’s jewellery includes everything from wedding bands, necklaces, pendants and bracelets to watches, cuff links, rings, earring and studs. Gems include diamonds, pink pearls, black pearls, topaz and jade.

She said: “The owner is understandably extremely distressed at losing such as large quality of items, not least because many of them were given as gifts and are of high sentimental value.”

Distinctive items include:

A chunky D&G necklace with matching earrings
A blue topaz and diamond pendant
A gold and silver three heart necklace with matching earrings
A silver heart necklace with matching earrings
A gents D&G watch with metal strap
A gents Rotary watch with gold strap
A gents Police watch with metal strap
A ladies Gucci watch with metal strap
A Jimmy Choo for H&M bracelet
