Kim Kardashian may never be able to see any of her jewelry from October’s Paris robbery! In a new report one of the robbers claim that her jewelry was melted down (you know so it’s not traced), but her engagement ring was spared and it was all because the diamond was too recognizable.
Kim’s Jewelry Melted?
According to a few excerpts taken from the police testimony and published in the French newspaper, Le Monde, Aomar Ait KIhedache, 60 (aka “The Old Man”) says Kim’s jewelry was melted down and sold in Belgium. But not her engagement ring. “For the jewelry never to be recognized, we made the decision to melt them. One of the people took care of it. He came back with bars … in all, there had to be 800 and a few grams, which gave an amount of ah … 25,000 or 28,000 [euros], something like that.” Kim’s engagement ring on the other hand is still intact, but that’s only because its too high-profile to sell. “There is a person who has it. Everyone was afraid to sell, because it’s a stone that’s very easily spotted.”
KIhedache says he planned to rob Kim during a previous occasion since he knew her whereabouts. “She specified that she didn’t wear fakes, the schedules when she came to France. It was enough to look on the internet to know everything, absolutely everything.” 17 people were arrested in connection to the robbery which catapulted Kim into a social media hiatus.
