POLICE are trying to return these suspected ill-gotten rings to their rightful owners.

Officers seized them as part of an ongoing investigation in Yeovil.

The jewellery includes:

*three solitaire rings with colourless stones;

*a ring set with red stones in a flower pattern;

*two eternity-style rings with light blue stones.

An Avon and Somerset Police spokesman said: "If you believe they are yours please get in touch with proof of ownership quoting reference 5218265548 and your own crime reference number, if you have one."

To deter burglars, police advise:

*keeping cash in the bank and high-value jewellery with a specialist secure storage company, not at home;

*keeping photographs and a description of items with sentimental value;

*using a traceable asset marking liquid on jewellery or antiques joining Neighbourhood Watch;

*keeping tools locked up in a secure shed or garage;

*making sure garden furniture and wheelie bins can’t be moved to gain access to upstairs windows;

*locking up and set the alarm at night as well as when you go out

If you have any information about the rings, call 101 and give the call handler the reference number 5218265548.
