Unfortunately for Kim Kardashian, all of her stolen Jewelry is gonzo. These robbers didn’t go the average route after making a heist, and no- her precious heirlooms are not sitting in some pawn shop in Paris just waiting to be rescued.
Backstory: Kim was tied up, gagged and held at gun point in her hotel room in Paris. A group of assailants then robbed her of about 13 pieces of jewelry worth approximately 5.6 million dollars. Get the full story here.
Since the middle of January, 17 people have been arrested in connection with the robbery and 10 have been charged.
So what happened to all of Kim’s stuff?
Aomar Ait Khedache, who is one of the men who robbed the reality television star, says that all of the jewelry has been melted down and sold for pennies on the dollar. According to French newspaper Le Monde, Khedache confessed that they were able to get about 800 grams of gold from the melted down jewelry and sold it for an estimated $30,000. The only piece of jewelry that remains is Kim’s emerald cut engagement ring, which the robbers were afraid to sell as the stone is easily recognizable. More here.
