There was little hope for Kim finding all of her stolen jewels when new details on her Paris robbery surfaced earlier this month. However, all of that hope has drifted away, now that one of the robbers admitted to selling and melting most of her precious jewels, except for one: her engagement ring.
The leader of the elderly French gang who allegedly robbed the reality star of millions of dollars worth of jewelry in October, shared exactly what they did with her stolen goods.
“For the jewelry never to be recognized, we made the decision to melt them,” Aomar Ait Khedache told police, according to a report published by the French newspaper Le Monde. “One of the people took care of that. He came back with bars. In all, there had to be 800 and a few grams, which gave an amount of ($26,000 to $30,000).”
The alleged mastermind confessed to investigators that the only piece of jewelry that remains is Kardashian’s 20-carat emerald cut diamond ring.
“There is a person who has it,” he told cops. “Everyone was afraid to sell because it’s a stone that’s very easily spotted.”
Gang leader, Khedache, who is known as “The Old Man,” called the heist a “very simple affair,” saying it was easy to track down Kim and they knew it would be easy because she flaunted her jewelry on social media.
“She specified that she didn’t wear fakes, the schedules when she came to France,” he told cops. “It was enough to look on the Internet to know everything, absolutely everything.”
Khedache is currently being held without bail.
