£300,000 of rare and unique jewellery which was recovered by W York Police from a house in Cleckheaton in 2010.

Up to 108 unique and handmade items including a ring with a snake design and yellow stone were recovered.

It is believed the items, which also include diamond rings, ear rings and a number of antique pieces could be worth a minimum £300,000.

They include a highly unusual aquamarine and diamond ring (pictured) in the form of two rings, which is unlikely to have been purchased in this country, and a blue stone and diamond set necklace (pictured)

The blue stones are all natural sapphires and the items were possibly made in Thailand.

Other items of interest also include a lady’s brilliant cut diamond ring (pictured) which is of significant value and rarity, and was most probably made before the Second World War.

Widespread enquiries with experts have suggested the jewellery was not local to the area and could have potentially come from elsewhere in the region or wider country.
