A Teddington jeweller has made a desperate plea for any information about £2,000 worth of handmade pieces that were stolen from her home.
Almost all of Charlotte Bezzant’s collection was taken from her home in Holmesdale Road, including four necklaces, six rings, three bangles and some pins and brooches.
She feared they could have been dumped somewhere, so is asking for people to keep a look out for the jewellery.
Mrs Bezzant said the pieces were unique, silver and all engraved with her registered hallmark that contains her initials CB, so they would be hard to sell on.
The 42-year-old said: “I desperately, desperately want it back. If this is being circulated around the borough then people will spot it and people will be able to get it back to me.
“What they have stolen is the product of two or three years’ work. The collection includes items containing aquamarines and moonstones, including one particular distinctive pyramid shape stone.
“As the collection is a culmination of the past couple of years of building up a new business, I am desperate to get the pieces back. Because they are silver, they have a relatively low scrap value, but they represent many, many lost hours of hard work.”
The pieces went missing in the early part of the new year.
Police were unavailable for comment.
