Thief Steals Gigantic Crystal From Front of Jeweler’s Shop

This could be tough to pawn.

A thief has stolen a 25-pound crystal from the shank of a 7-foot-high wedding ring sculpture located in front of Toronto-based jewelers Louro and Sons.

The robbery occurred Saturday night at 1 a.m. and was apparently the work of two men—one stood guard, while the other used a hammer to dislodge the megacrystal, which measures 13 inches in diameter.

The sculpture has stood in front of the jewelers since December, the retailer said on its Facebook page.

The crystal has been valued at $7,000, and the retailer is offering a $1,000 reward for its return.

“It’s a very iconic ring,” owner Louis Louro told The Toronto Star. “It’s about seven-and-a-half-feet tall. It’s the biggest one in Canada. We did it specifically for our 30th anniversary here in Yorkville. A lot of people come by to take pictures.”

If it does get the jewel back, the store plans to raise it to make it harder to steal.
