Burglars escaped with a haul of jewellery following a raid on a house in Otley.
The items, which had sentimental value to the owner, were taken from a property on Oatlands Drive, Otley.
Police have now released an appeal for information on the burglary, which happened on June 6 between 9.45am and 11.45am.
The stolen jewellery included a gold signet ring with the initials JRP on the inside, a ladies' 14-carat gold signet ring, a men's Seiko wristwatch with a gold strap and a coffee-coloured face, a ladies' eternity ring with diamond chippings, and a ladies' gold engagement ring with a single middle diamond and two diamonds either side on a twisted band (pictured). Some money was also stolen.
PC Sam Warburton said: "At the time of the burglary a silver 4x4 vehicle was seen in the area, with a white female with bleached blonde hair in the passenger seat. It has not been confirmed that this vehicle was involved but we would like to hear from anyone who saw anything suspicious."
Anyone with information can ring police on 101, or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
