The collection includes not only some costume jewellery but also items that are quite valuable, such as an Asian gold style bracelet in a presentation box and an Indian-style ring with four white stones.

Other items include a pocket watch, ladies’ watches, various chains, pendants, brooches and rings, silver plated cutlery, coins and medals and unusual blue compact set.

Detective constable Kevin Howes said: “A number of these items are very recognisable and we would love to reunite them with their rightful owners. No doubt there are some things which have been sadly missed and are of great sentimental value to their owners.

“If you have been victim of a burglary in which something like this was taken, between about September 2012 and January 2013, please take a look at the pictures on our website and if you can recognise anything give the burglary team a call.”

To make a claim proof of ownership is required or a relevant crime recording number.
