A Generation’s Worth of Jewellery


Necklaces, Jewels and Asian Gold Stolen From Family Home

A family spoke of their devastation after jewellery passed down through generations was stolen from their home. The robbers took a large quantity of necklaces, earrings and jewel-encrusted bangles from the home on Yewhurst Road, Solihull during the night. A large amount of money was also taken.

West Midlands detectives have released photos of the Asian gold haul which is often given to new brides, in an attempt to trace the items back.

One of the family members said, “I am devastated – several items have been passed through my family for generations.”

Asian gold is normally 18 to 24 carat and often decorated with semi-precious stones. Some of the empty boxes which held the jewellery were found dumped under a bridge by the canal off Old Warwick Road in Lapworth.

Detective Constable Jon Rankin claimed they were hoping to contact someone who was offered the jewellery, “The family are understandably shocked and upset by the break-in and are desperate to recover the jewellery.

“Some of the boxes were found under a bridge by the canal off Old Warwick Road in Lapworth, but obviously the jewellery was not found.
