The brave thief entered the property in Lower Lickhill Road, in Stourport, between 10am and 10.45am on Tuesday, July 28.

The elderly occupants were in the house at the time – while the offender stole a range of jewellery including an engagement ring and eternity ring.

A spokesman for West Mercia Police said: "Between 10am and 10.45am on July 28, a residential property has been burgled by unknown persons.

"The offender has entered the property whilst the elderly occupants were present and stolen jewellery and cash.

"The offence has taken place in daylight hours at a busy time on the road. We are appealing to the public for information in relation to the crime to help us in our going investigation.

"Police are keen to publicise the stolen items to hinder their onward movement and appeal for the safe return of the highly sentimental items to the rightful owner."

The items stolen include one engagement ring with a two stone twist; one dress ring with small white stones and a sapphire in the middle; one dress ring with four sapphires; one patterned gold ring; one eternity ring with diamonds all round; one gold heart necklace; one gold necklace with a heart; one gold necklace with stones; one gold chain and bracelet; and one twisted gold chain described as "very glittery".

Anyone with information is asked to call West Mercia Police on 101, quoting incident number 00419I of July 28.
