UNIQUE IDENTIFIERS - Much of the jewelry is from the brand "Effy." There are some specific diamonds missing on certain pieces that make them identifiable.

On what was supposed to be my very last business trip to Boston before I quit my job, my entire jewelry collection was stolen from my apartment. Everything. Things worth $5, $50 or event $1500 each. My grandmother’s engagement ring was in there, her petite art deco gold diamond earrings she wore on her wedding day. A congrats ring new in the box for my sister. The Mexican taxco silver bracelet from when I was 6 years old. The sapphire from an ex-boyfriend. My own purchases of expensive Effy rose gold panther necklaces and rings. All of it. Every last piece of jewelry I owned save the nine pieces I brought with me for my business trip. The thief busted open my front door, appears to have been unseen in taking the jewelry, rifling through all of my cabinets and taking anything that looked like a jewelry box. He or she also stole my laptop with years of personal records. The police haven’t yet assigned anyone to look into this, and I’ve been visiting local pawn shops myself trying to show them the flyer of the dozens of items I’ve printed out. Thankfully I have pictures of most of my jewelry, but a long slog is ahead to try to find these family heirlooms, some of them the very last vestigages of both sides of my grandparents. I’m also inundated with tasks to change all my banking passwords and account numbers — a much bigger challenge than you might realize. I need help, and I’m not sure how to find these items even with some advance Google search terms!
