Tamara Ecclestone has offered a $7.2 million reward for the return of stolen jewelry

In December 2019, thieves broke into the home of a 38-year-old socialite, daughter of a formerFormula 1 supreme Bernie Ecclestone. She said they fled with jewelry and family heirlooms.

In a series of posts posted to her Instagram Stories on Sunday, Ecclestone said: “While I’ve come to terms with the fact that I’ll likely never see my stolen items again, I’m happy to offer a 25% reward on everything the police are able to reconstruct the results based on the information provided by the source. If you are a source, you are rewarded.”

She continued: “Given the total cost of the burglary is £26 million, that’s a reward of up to £6 million for anyone who helps me get back what is rightfully mine.”

Jewel thieves jailed for $35 million celebrity burglary

Her comments were made following the release of the BBC documentary Who Stole Tamara Ecclestone’s Diamonds? which aired on Thursday.

Ecclestone recalls at the beginning of the documentary that she was vacationing in Lapland with her husband, art gallery owner Jay Rutland, and their daughter when a jewel heist took place at their Kensington mansion.

Describing the effect the burglary had on her, Ecclestone wrote on Instagram: “The thought of these disgusting people ransacking every room in my house, breaking into my house, touching my things and stealing some of the things I value most means I will never again be able to rest my head in this house with the same sense of security that I once had.”

Ecclestone said the raid “still traumatizes my family and me”.

In November last year, A. Jewel thieves gang jailed for a series of burglaries at the homes of celebrities, including Ecclestone. Other dignitaries have also been targeted, such as former England footballer Frank Lampard and his wife, TV presenter Kristin.

The police described the thefts as “the largest series of burglaries in UK history”.
