Jewellery with a lot of sentimental value was among items stolen from a West Hallam home at the weekend.
At some point between 9.30am on Friday and 3.45pm on Monday, burglars forced open a window at the back of the property in St Wilfrid’s Road.
Several rings and a laptop were stolen but a police spokesman said the occupants are most concerned about a distinctive bracelet.
It is thick gold and inscribed with flowers. Police have made house-to-house enquiries but have made no arrests.
Anyone with information should call Derbyshire police on 0345 123 33 33 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 11.
