Police are appealing for anyone who may have seen these distinctive items of jewellery to get in touch after they were stolen from a Thrapston home.

Between March 15 and April 5 this year, a number of people viewed a property for sale in Blackbridge Court, after which a number of items of gold and diamond jewellery were discovered to be missing.

A spokesman for Northants Police said: "Many of the items had belonged to the homeowner’s late spouse, and have great sentimental value, leading officers investigating the case to make a plea for anyone who may have been offered them for sale to get in touch.
