Monroe jewelry stolen from exhibition

Two pieces of jewelry that once belonged to Marilyn Monroe have been stolen from an exhibition, police said Tuesday.

A diamond-encrusted gold ring with an “M” motif and a gold bangle, together worth $64,000, were stolen from central London’s County Hall Gallery, which is hosting the exhibition about the actress, “Marilyn Monroe: Life of a Legend,” The Associated Press reports.

Scotland Yard reportedly said the items were stolen Monday afternoon. One man was arrested in the thefts and was being held by police. Another male suspect remained at large, and police have appealed for information to help trace the stolen items.

Monroe, the star of such films as “Some Like It Hot” and “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes,” died in August 1962 at 36.
