Police are appealing for anyone who may have seen these precious items which were stolen in a burglary at a house in Wisborough Green earlier this month to come forward.

They are also appealing for witnesses to the burglary which happened in Roundstreet Common on Wednesday 17 April sometime between 8.40am and 6.30pm. A safe containing valuable jewellery, cash, Euros, keys and paperwork was stolen.

The jewellery stolen included a 4.51 carat blue tanzanite round stone worth £6,000 and a blue tanzanite trillian cut stone pendant with a silver snake chain.

Crime investigator Kelly Ackerman said: "These pieces of jewellery are of significant sentimental value to the victim. We would like to hear from anyone who has seen the items or has any information about them or the burglary to come forward."
