It is suspected the theft was carried out by someone with access to the house.

And police are not only asking for witnesses to the burglary, they are also urging anyone offered the jewellery not to buy it but instead contact them.

PC Sally Musket, of Halifax Police, said: “A large amount of quite distinctive jewellery was taken in this offence and we would appeal to anyone who is offered it for sale to contact the police.

“As it is wedding jewellery it is not often checked resulting in the victim only noticing it was missing recently.”

Other itmes taken included five gold men’s rings, eight women’s gold rings, a gold locket and a gold wrist strap.

PC Musket said: “Clearly these items are of emotional value to the victims and I would ask anyone who has information about the theft or who may have any information at all to contact myself on 101.

“Information can also be passed anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
