"The Brilliant, The Ingenious, and The Downright Stupid:
Jewelry Heists Throughout History”

Robin Weber, President, BillyTheTree.com

Jewelry and gemstones have the ability to exude a near magical attraction for many, and have commanded high value throughout history, tempting crooks and crazed collectors to devise all sorts of intricate, brilliant, and, well...stupid plans to pull off the ultimate heist.

To what lengths did they go? Did they succeed? What lessons were learned, and what does it teach us about the inextricable links between jewelry and people?"
