How horrible! Kim Kardashian, 35, is understandably shaken up after what she’s calling ‘the worst moment of my life.’ While she is — most importantly — safe, her belongings are not. Nearly $11 million worth of jewelry was taken from her hotel room, while she was locked and tied up in the bathroom. It’s unclear which of Kim’s jewelry was taken at this time.

Two masked men, dressed as police officers not only held Kim Kardashian at gunpoint and at her hotel in Paris, they also took a great deal of expensive jewelry, including a jewelry box worth $6.7 million and a ring worth $4.5 million, police said, according to Daily Mail. It has not yet been confirmed if the ring taken was in fact, one of the two that she has received from Kanye West. While Kim’s original Lorraine Schwartz engagement ring was worth around $1.6 million, the second diamond that Kanye gave his wife — a 20-carat emerald-cut ring — was reportedly worth around $4 million.

When leaving Paris the following morning, she was spotted on a private plane, not wearing a ring. In her last snapchat taken before the robbery, she was wearing it. The men who robbed her were part of a “highly organized” group, police confirmed, according to Us. They entered the apartment by reportedly tying up and gagging the concierge at the front desk and putting him inside a stairwell cupboard. TMZ is reporting there were five men total who entered the building, and they tied up a terrified Kim and put her in the bathroom of her room.

Of course, more details are still coming out of this story. Kanye was performing a concert in Queens at the time the news broke; he stopped the show in the middle of performing “Heartless,” and walked off stage. The venue later tweeted to inform fans he had a “family emergency.”

Our thoughts are with Kim at this time.

Suspect dead after attempted robbery at Buckhead jewelry store

ATLANTA — A suspect was killed during an attempted robbery at a Buckhead jewelry store Wednesday afternoon.

Police were called to the Cachet Jewelry Story in the 2800 block of Piedmont Road NE around 2:30 p.m. Wednesday.
According to police, the owner said the suspect visited the store last week and said he was looking to spend about $70,000.
When the suspect came back on Wednesday, the owner was allegedly suspicious of his intentions.
According to a witness, the suspect allegedly pulled out a gun and told the owner to put all the jewels in a bag.
“When he had said, ‘Put everything in the bag,’ and then pulled the gun on him. He had his two sons with him. When the guy pointed the gun at his father, that’s when he took action, and the person was shot three times,” witness Mike Kashani said.
Police said the owner’s son shot the suspect in the neck.
A man who owns a store next door said the suspect ran outside and then collapsed in front of his shop.
“When he had said, ‘Put everything in the bag,’ and then pulled the gun on him, he had his two sons with him,” Kashani said.
The incident remains under investigation. The son is not expected to be charged in the shooting.

Jewelry simply is not worth someones life.  This is why being a jewelry thief is not worth it.

Something a little odd, is the article says police where called to “Cachet Jewelry Story,” but Google and Cachet’s website are calling the place, “Cachet Fine Jewelry.”  My guess is Ben knows what his business is called, but maybe the Story tag is a local thing.

Also, as great a marketing tool as Google can be, jewelry stores should be very cautious of the images of the inside of their facilities they release!  The image in this post is taken from Google, and is from a 360 image, which means anyone can pan 360 degrees and can essentially case the store from the comfort of their own home!
