PC Anita Hazell, of Leeds District Crime Team, said: “The jewellery that was stolen is worth a significant amount of money but is also of great sentimental value to the victims, who are understandably upset.”

Police released details of the burglary, which happened at about 9.40am on August 10, as they appealed for information.

PC Hazell said: “Some of the items are quite distinctive, as seen in the photograph.

“We would like to hear from anyone who has been offered any Asian jewellery like this for sale since August 10 or who has any information that could assist the investigation.”

It follows an appeal earlier this week about a masked trio who escaped with a large amount of Asian gold jewellery after threatening at woman at knifepoint in her Pudsey home on August 19.
