    The gem, a rare yellow stone, was discovered during a valuation at the Gemological Institute of America (GIC), a non-profit organisation in New York that grades and certifies valuable stones.
 The jewel is believed to have been among dozens of precious items stolen from the Graff jewellery store in Sloane Street in London five years ago.

    Two smartly-dressed men walked into the high-end store and pulled out silver handguns after passing through the shop’s security airlock.

    The pair then helped themselves to millions of pounds worth of necklaces, pendants, rings and jewels before leaping into their £85,000 Bentley and speeding away.

    No arrests were made after the incident despite CCTV footage of the men being released.

    None of the jewels have been recovered since the theft.

    The suspect gem was discovered after the Yau On pawn shop in Hong Kong presented a “16.28 carat modified cushion cut diamond” to the GIA valuation centre in New York, the court papers said.

    However, the valuation centre had assessed the stone before the theft and had detailed information about its grade and structure on file. The 16.68-carat gem had been recut but it was still identifiable, the court papers said.

    Graff diamonds is now suing the pawn shop to recover the jewel.

     "Graff is and was the true owner of the diamond and entitled to immediate possession of the diamond," but the pawn shop wont let the institute return the gem, the lawsuit says.

    The yellow diamond is being kept at the GIA’s laboratory while the outcome of the court battle is decided. The pawn shop insists the gem belongs to them.

    The value of the rare stone remains a mystery.

    In 2003, another Graff location, on Londons Bond Street, was robbed of $41 million worth of gems. A man was convicted of that theft and sentenced to 15 years in prison.

    In 2009, the Bond Street store became the target of a $65 million stickup that counted as one of Britains biggest jewellery heists. Five men have been convicted in that robbery and sentenced to 16 or more years in prison.

16克拉巨钻被盗5年后现身香港当铺

环球网记者谭利娅报道

环球网>国际>国际新闻>正文,URL:  < http://world.huanqiu.com/roll/2012-01/2355325.html >, Release date: 2012-01-13.

 

    据英国《每日电讯报》1月13日报道,一颗罕见16克拉的珍贵钻石5年前从伦敦一家珠宝行被盗,近日现身香港一家当铺受到广泛关注。法庭表示,伦敦这家珠宝行才应该是珠宝所有者,因此当铺应该将其归还。

    据报道,这颗罕见的黄宝石是在被估价的过程中被发现的。它原本属于伦敦格拉夫珠宝行。5年前这家珠宝行遭两名男子洗劫,包括这颗黄宝石在内的数件珍贵珠宝被盗,总价值超过1300万英镑。两名犯罪分子后来也一直逃匿,而被盗珠宝自那以后也再未曾被人发现过。

    香港这家当铺日前要求美国一个相关组织为珠宝定价,并将其信息呈交给对方,然而由于该组织对该珠宝早有存档,经比对得知其就是5年前被盗的物品,这才导致珠宝重回大众视线。

伦敦失窃巨钻流落香港当铺 引发越洋诉讼

中新网1月15日电

中国新闻网,URL: < http://www.chinanews.com/ga/2012/01-15/3605525.shtml >, Release date: 2012年01月15日 10:24。


    中新网1月15日电 据香港中通社报道,一枚黄钻引发英、美与香港的越洋“争夺战”。该枚重逾16克拉的黄色钻石,5年前在英国伦敦一珠宝店1.6亿元(港元,下同)劫案中被抢走后,疑再被人重新切割改头换面,越洋被香港大埔一间当铺购入,承保的保险公司全球追踪失物下落,声称发现黄钻下落,实时起诉追讨,而当铺老板亦透过法律行动,拒绝归还。

  报道称,案发于2007年7月,两名贼人驾驶一部价值约200万元的宾利名车,到伦敦的格拉夫珠宝店佯装购物,突然拔出手枪,指吓店员,掠去大批钻饰,包括宝石戒指、颈链、吊锤和耳环等,之后逃去无踪。其中的黄色巨钻几经辗转疑流入香港一间当铺。
 
  购入该枚黄钻的是位于大埔的友安大押少东孔瑞宏,他13日接受访问时透露,为了保护个人真金白银购入的黄钻,曾在2010年有关保险公司兴讼追讨时,他已聘请律师打这场越洋黄钻争夺战官司。由于起诉人是英国的保险公司,而事发时,孔瑞宏已将该枚黄钻交予美国宝石学院进行鉴定。英国的保险公司亦要求美国宝石学院交还黄钻但遭拒绝,由此形成了横跨英、美及香港3地的法律角力。
 
  经营友安大押的孔瑞宏,在尖沙嘴亦开设珠宝店,对钻石珠宝等贵价首饰认识甚深,他记得与该枚黄钻的“邂逅”始于2010年12月,一位相识的钻石中介人向他表示,手上有一颗黄钻,问他是否有兴趣一看,中介人其后并带同一张由比利时安特卫国际宝石学院发出的鉴证书,证明该枚黄钻货真价实,他经仔细查证后,认为黄钻没有问题,遂以330万元购入,随后送往美国宝石学院再作进一步鉴证。
 
  岂料美国宝石学院曾对该枚黄钻进行过鉴定,虽然黄钻曾被人重新切割改头换面,但学院仍能根据黄钻的色泽及硬度等数据,证实伦敦格拉夫(Graff)珠宝店是黄钻的第一手主人,学院遂分别通知伦敦的珠宝店及香港的当铺。
 
  案发至今多年,其实保险公司已向遇劫珠宝公司赔偿损失,但发现黄钻下落后,保险公司再透过珠宝公司追讨。据了解,类似事件在行内甚为常见,但因为有关交易及追讨甚为低调,行外人甚少听闻,业界为保利益与声誉,一直拒绝成立业界的通报机制,以减少误购有问题钻石而招致的损失。
 
  友安大押亦曾试过因为误接贼赃典当物,而闹上法庭。早前有周生生珠宝行前店员,监守自盗偷去两条金链后到友安大押典当获4万元,当铺“误打误撞”买入贼赃,周生生不甘蒙受损失,双方为金链拥有权而起诉讼。虽然友安指责周生生疏忽且欠缺监管才引致损失,理应负最大责任,但最终友安大押亦被判负责一半损失。
