The burglary happened at around 3pm on Tuesday, July 3, and officers are now appealing for information.

Offender(s) allegedly gained entry to the rear garden before smashing a set of patio doors and searching the property.

A wooden jewellery box which contained a large amount of jewellery – including those pictured – was taken.

Those pictured show a distinctive pearl and amethyst pendant, and a small perfume bottle worn on a chain which is made out of mother of pearl.

Dt Con Georgina Peggie, from the North Herts local crime unit, said: “This is understandably a really upsetting crime for the victim as the items taken have huge sentimental value and simply cannot be replaced.

“I am asking people to familiarise themselves with these unusual pieces of jewellery in case the offender(s) try to sell them, either in a shop or via social media.

“I am also asking those who live locally or had been visiting the area to please cast their minds back and try to remember if they saw any suspicious activity in the village that day.

“Any information, however insignificant it may seem, could be the key to solving the crime.”

Anyone with information should email DC Peggie on georgina.peggie@herts.police.uk.

You can also report information online at herts.police.uk/Report or call the non-emergency number 101, quoting crime reference number 41/13979/18.

Alternatively, you can contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or via its anonymous online form at crimestoppers-uk.org.
