A couple have launched a desperate appeal to trace bespoke jewellery stolen in a burglary.
John and Gail Webb, whose Bollington home was raided in November last year, have turned to the public for help after police were unable to recover precious items taken.
The burglary is believed have taken place between 11am and 1.30pm on Monday, November 16, while Mrs Webb was out shopping.
Thieves forced their way through a patio door on Hazelhurst Drive, Bollington, before ransacking the house of 56 items including a bespoke ring, bracelet, necklace, earrings and ankle chain, which all had a spider theme. These items, worth more than £12,000, were handcrafted in gold with diamonds.
Mrs Webb said: “The jewellery are items that cannot be replaced. They are handcrafted from a workshop in Macclesfield and bespoke to me. It is really upsetting to think I will never see or wear them again. I just hope someone recognises them and gets in touch with the police.”
Other jewellery taken included: diamond earrings, gold heart-shaped locket with photo, a gold watch, a gold eternity ring with sapphires and diamonds, a gold signet ring engraved with ‘GCB’, a gold necklace with sapphire and diamond pendant, a silver Egyptian wedding ring, a silver spider brooch, a gold ship brooch, a white gold engagement ring with solitaire diamond, Alice in Wonderland-themed bracelet, necklace and earrings.
Thieves also got away with a camera, laptop, Blackberry mobile phone and iPhone.
If you can help the Webbs call police on 101 quoting incident number 463 of 16 November 2015.
