Kim Kardashian was tied up and threatened with a gun by a group of criminals on Oct. 3, shocking the world. However, the assailants left the reality star unharmed, making it clear that they were only after one thing: her impressive jewelry collection. Though they made off with a multi-million dollar ring, an Oct. 4 report says that Kim doesn’t think the thieves can sell it — here’s why.
If you’ve got it, flaunt it — but that went terribly wrong for Kim Kardashian, 35, when her gorgeous diamond ring was stolen right after she showed it off on Snapchat. However, Kim is “confident” that she’ll get the ring back, according to an Oct. 4 report from TMZ. “It’s very rare with unique identifiers, [and] she believes if anyone tries to sell the ring they’ll find it,” sources close to Kim tell the site. “The police report she filed includes the diamond’s inscription number and other markers that will raise red flags if it ends up on the market,” the outlet also reports. Shouldn’t be long before it turns up, then!
Inscribed diamonds like Kim’s feature a microscopic number laser-inscripted on the stone, according to the Gemological Institute of America, so if her ring’s gem shows up for sale or even just an inspection or cleaning, the police will be called. Lost diamonds are tracked in a system, so Kim’s ring and/or diamond would be identified right away if the thieves try to move the stolen piece.
As we previously learned, though, it’s possible that the criminals will try to sell the diamond on the black market — meaning there’s less of a chance someone will report it. Hopefully it won’t come to that!
