BURGLARS stole jewellery worth £90,000 from a North Yorkshire home.
The haul which was taken from a house on Clayton Hall Road in Crosshills, near Skipton, on Wednesday, included several distinctive pieces.
Police are appealing for anyone who may be offered similar items for sale to contact them.
The stolen items include a distinctive white gold chain with pear-shaped emerald pendant, a yellow gold necklace with heart-shaped jade pendant surrounded by diamonds, a yellow gold square-shaped diamond solitaire ring, an Omega watch with a white gold strap and coloured gem stones around the face engraved with “Olympic Edition 2008” and a yellow gold Chinese style bracelet with jade stones.
