Rare jewellery stolen in Wednesfield raid
West Midlands Police are appealing for help after a rare piece of jewellery was stolen from a house in Wednesfield on 12th October.
Detectives have released a photograph of a rare Faberge Egg stolen during a burglary in Wednesfield as they appeal for help to catch the offenders and locate the stolen property.
A number of high value items were stolen when thieves broke into the house â€“ amongst them, a Faberge egg â€“ a blue enamel egg pendant on an 18ct gold Faberge chain.
Detective Constable Richard Grace, from Wolverhampton CID, explained that the chain was highly sought after.
He said: â€œEtched into the gold detailing of the egg is the number â€˜1000â€™, which represents the fact that the pendant is the 1000th of 1000 pendants ever made.
â€œIt is considered a very rare piece of jewellery and is therefore a collectorsâ€™ item.
â€œIâ€™m urging people to keep a lookout for the egg and get in touch with me if they know of its location â€“ someone must know where itâ€™s gone.â€
Anyone with any information about the burglary, or where the stolen Faberge Egg may now be, is asked to come forward and speak to police.
Calls should be made to CID at Wolverhampton on 101 or the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
