Hollie Woodham, from Nova Silver, said: "We've noticed a real increase in the number of customers who are coming to us looking to replace jewellery that has been stolen.

"We all know that burglars are looking for items that are high value and easy to carry, and unfortunately that makes jewellery an attractive choice."

The shop has urged people to note weak spots in their homes where entry could be gain and fix them, ask neighbours to move bins when they are away so the home looks occupied and hide valuable pieces of jewellery away where a suspected thief would not look.
