Another day, another multi-million dollar jewelry heist at the Cannes Film Festival. It's just been reported that on Tuesday, a de Grisogono necklace worth $2.6 million was stolen from a party the brand was having in Cannes.
"These incidents are rare; it is actually the first time it has happened in our 20-year history," said de Grisogono's founder Fawaz Gruosi in a statement. "However when they occur, one must be proactive and collaborate with the authorities."
Police in France are also still on the hunt for the jewelry stolen from a Chopard employee's hotel room in Cannes, but there are plenty of other, much older fashion and jewelry thefts that still haven't been completely solved. Case in point: only a portion of the legendary raid at the Harry Winston store in Paris was ever found, and it doesn't appear that all of Marc Jacobs's stolen Spring 2012 samples were found.
Herein, a look at some of the most brazen, lucrative, and strange thefts in fashion.
