Pamela Bishop, of Heath Road, Ipswich, had her home burgled on Wednesday, October 8, where a number of items of her late mother’s jewellery stolen.
Some of the jewellery stolen included a 75 year-old engagement ring, a gold chain bracelet given as a wedding gift in 1922 and a number of rings, necklaces and brooches. The stolen items also included St John’s Ambulance medals bearing four gilt bars.
Now, the distressed homeowner is offering a reward of up to £1,000 for items to be returned.
Ms Bishop said: “I was shocked because a lot of the items taken are things which were of value to me because they were given to me as a child. They were not of great financial value but they all have great sentimental value, and impossible to replace with identical items.”
