JEWELLERY and antiques worth hundreds of thousands of pounds have been stolen in a burglary in Woking.
Two rings and a pair of earrings were taken from a bedroom of the house in Hockering Road.
Two antique figures and a Georgian tea caddy were also taken.
One of the figures is a bronze La Rosee, possibly made in the late 19th century and 70cm (2ft 4in) tall, and the other a bronze winged statue, inscribed “H’Dailion” and measuring 50m (1ft 8in).
The jewellery consisted of a pair of diamond pendant earrings in platinum, handmade by Baileys of Horsell, an 18ct yellow and white gold claw set stone sapphire and diamond ring and a three-stone brilliant cut diamond claw set platinum ring.
A Surrey Police spokesman said that officers were called around 2.50pm on Monday this week after reports of a break-in.
