Thefts of high value gold jewellery

Alert message sent 01/03/2022 15:43:00

Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police

There has been an increase in reported burglaries and thefts of high value gold jewellery from residential properties across the area. Residents can help avoid giving burglars the opportunity to steal their jewellery by considering these crime prevention tips:

Try not to keep your high value jewellery at home. Consider using a bank safety deposit box. If you have to keep your jewellery at home, check that your home insurance covers these items.

Invest in a home safe suitable for protecting your jewellery. Your insurance company may be able to provide advice as to which type and grade of safe best suits your needs.

Photograph and keep an inventory of your jewellery. Place your jewellery against a plain background with a ruler next to it to give an idea of size. The inventory can be created as a paper version or online with companies such as Immobilise.
Include identifying marks, value, and purchase date. For more information visit

As with other valuables, do not leave any jewellery on display or post images on social media.

Make sure your home is secure at all times. Ensure that all doors, especially rear doors, and all windows are secure and locked. Use timers that switch lights on when going out. Please do not post on social media that you are away from your home.

Set your house alarm if you have one and consider purchasing a video doorbell or CCTV system.

Use forensic marking to identify your jewellery. Information on forensic marking can be found on
