Police in North Yorkshire are asking for the public's help in tracing several items of distinctive jewellery stolen during a burglary.
Detectives say the items, including a blue, zircon cluster ring, along with earrings, lockets, bracelets and a gold and silver engagement ring bought in the 1940s were taken from a house in Middleton Tyas near Richmond.
They believe the items were taken between 3.15pm and 5.30pm on Monday 16 May when burglars forced their way into a house.
The jewellery has great sentimental value as many of the items were gifts from the victim's late husband and late mother.

A touring exhibition highlighting historic buildings in the Yorkshire Dales National Park will open at The Station in Richmond today.
'Every Picture Tells a Story' is made up of photographs of a range of old buildings that have been selected by the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority's Historic Environment Team. The images show the quality and variety of some of the historic buildings and features and they were originally taken to inform the day-to-day work of the team.
The exhibition, which was previously shown at the National Park Authority's offices in Bainbridge, will be on display in The Station until February 3.
We hope these images will inspire visitors to take a fresh look at the built environment of the Yorkshire Dales and to appreciate better the significance and fragility of this part of our cultural heritage.

Hailstones the size of golf balls caused untold damage in parts of North Yorkshire - shattering glass in a garden centre.
Claire Montgomery reports:
A man who subjected a young girl to a prolonged period of sexual abuse has been jailed for 20 years.
Andrew Dale Iveson, 48, from Richmond, was sentenced at Teesside Crown Court on Wednesday 17 June 2015, after being found guilty of nine child sex offences, eleven counts of rape and five other sexual offences.
The victim was aged under 10 at the time the abuse began in 2005 and Iveson continued to sexually assault her until 2013 when she was into her teens.
Iveson, who worked as a relationship therapist also forced his pet dog onto the victim.
Iveson was also ordered to sign the sex offenders register for life.
The ordeal he put his victim through when she should have been enjoying her childhood was downright evil and I can only describe him as a monster. I would like to acknowledge the bravery of the victim for coming forward and telling the police what happened to her. Her courage has ensured that a vile and dangerous paedophile has been jailed for a long period of time.
