Surrey Police is appealing for information following the theft of sentimental jewellery.

The items were stolen from the family home in Holloway Hill, Godalming between Thursday, 22 December and Monday, 2 January.

It is believed that the intruder forced open a side window and gained entry before taking a selection of jewellery including an antique Rose Gold Victorian ring with a purple Amethyst stone. The unique piece has a carved Rose of Sharon design.

Other stolen items include:
•         A hand-painted jewellery box with a gold, floral design and five drawers lined with Chinese lettering
•         Some dress rings which include a including green ring and black ring with two stones missing
•         A pair of earrings described as Moroccan sliver and red pear-drop dangly earrings
•         A pair of Greek earrings with silver and blue stone in a spiral design
•         A quantity of necklaces including one described as a round Incan sun necklace and a sparkly green necklace with black string and matching earrings
•         Wahl Deluxe Chrome Pro Hair clippers

Detective Sergeant Charley Bryant, said: “The victims of this burglary they are understandably very upset about coming home from a Christmas trip to find out that their home had been broken into. What makes this incident even worse is discovering that the unusual antique Rose Gold Victorian Amethyst ring was taken as part of the haul.

“The ring was a special anniversary gift and is of huge sentimental value to the family. Although there are similar Amethyst rings with the Rose of Sharon engraving they all differ in appearance quite a lot and this particular unique piece is irreplaceable.

“We need the public’s help in trying to trace its whereabouts. As a unique and one of a kind ring I would urge anyone in the antique or jewellery business to keep an eye out for it and to let us know if they believe they have seen it being offered for sale.

“If you have any information or recognise this ring and think you know where it could be, then we urge you to contact Surrey Police. Similarly, I would urge anyone who believes they have any information about the stolen items to please get in touch.

“The beloved ring may not be of a high value but it is priceless to the owner and her husband – any information may help us return it to them and bring those accountable to justice.”

If you have any information or recognise this ring and think you know where it could be, then we urge you to contact 101 quoting crime reference number 45170000590 or you can use the online reporting system found at https://report.police.uk/ and enter the reference number in the ‘Additional information' section.
