West Mercia Police offers the following security advice:

•    Keep jewellery in a safe place and locked up if possible. Consider installing a safe at home which is securely fixed to the floor or wall. See www.securedbydesign.com for police approved safes.

•    Ensure that the jewellery is insured.

•    Consider storing high value items elsewhere such as in a bank deposit box; contact your bank for details.

•    Make a list of all jewellery stored in your house with a description of each item.

•    Photograph all pieces of jewellery against a plain background with the ruler next to them to give an idea of size.

•    Consider registering your jewellery with a registration company.

•    Make sure your home is kept secure at all times: keep windows and doors locked, switch lights on when going out to make your home looks occupied, use burglary alarms and install security lights on the outside of your property.
