An item of Kim Kardashian-West‘s jewellery has allegedly been found after the horrific robbery that occurred in Paris last week.
While the reality star is still recovering from being bound and held at gun point by five men dressed as police and robbed of AUD $14 million worth of jewellery, Parisian police have now recovered a pendant found outside the Hôtel de Pourtalès.
It was found by a passerby, in a pavement crack near the hotel. The incredibly virtuous person handed it in to the police.
TMZ reports that the item is a Jacob & Co. platinum mounted diamond cross, which Kim has had for years. It’s worth just under AUD $44,000.
While that’s a stupid amount of money to most of us, the main stolen item was Kim‘s enormous engagement ring from her husband Kanye West, and it’s worth a whopping $5 million – it’s obviously still missing.
While most reports state that the attackers accidentally dropped the necklace, US Weekly is reporting that the getaway and item-dropping was all a decoy.
A ‘police source’ has told the outlet that the robbers dropped the necklace and appeared to get away on bikes in order to fool police into thinking they were amateurs, when in actual fact they are professional thieves.
“They wanted us to believe that they were amateurs, but all the real clues point to them being extremely sophisticated professionals.There is no way a gang like this would drop stuff and fall off bicycles — all that was done for any cameras that might be in the area.It is far more likely that they played around on bikes for a few minutes after stealing the jewels, and when they still had their masks on, before they all got into a van and disappeared.”
