Police have released an image of a ruby ring stolen during a burglary in Harpenden they are trying to trace.
Between 6.45pm and 7.15pm on Monday, February 10 thieves forced open a kitchen window of a house in Ambrose Lane using a crow bar.
Ambrose Lane, Harpenden
Once inside, they took a number of items of jewellery including the ruby ring (pictured), silver oval cufflinks with a naval crown on the faces believed to be Gieves and Hawke, and a pair of silver antique candlesticks.
Detective Constable Paul Cullinan said: "I am appealing to anyone who may have been in the area, specifically in Ambrose Lane and Hollybush Lane that evening, and noticed any unusual activity. I am particularly keen to hear from anyone who saw a vehicle they didn’t recognise or which seemed out of place.
"The ring pictured holds sentimental value to its owner, who is keen for its return. If you have been offered this ring for sale or know of its whereabouts I would urge you to contact to me on the non- emergency number."
Anyone with information should contact via the Herts police non-emergency number 101 quoting crime reference number. Alternatively call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
