Forget chasing Harry Winston! Armed bandits seized millions of dollars worth of jewels in a brazen
robbery at Harry Winston in Paris late Thursday, according to police.

said that the thieves made off with between $60 million to $80 million
worth of necklaces, rings, watches and earrings in what appeared a
meticulously planned heist. According to WWD, the robbers were said to know the names of
several employees and as well secret storage units for jewels.

heist comes just over a year after a similar raid on the same Harry
Winston store on the Avenue Montaigne, when thieves made off with more
than $25 million in jewels. That robbery was considered the most
spectacular in France since the 2004 heist of about $15 million worth
of diamonds from Chopard during the Biennale des Antiquaires.

That’s a lot of stolen bling.

    whew! that’s definitely a lot of stolen bling! i wonder why the store didn’t learn its lesson since it already experienced an earlier bank robbery. poor security measures or just poor compliance? can also be an inside job…
