Recently the king of Ghana was robbed of his jewels while visiting Norway. Police are looking for two suspects caught on film from the lobby of the Oslo Radisson Blu Plaza hotel.
I would imagine it is being melted as we speak. Looks like King Osei Tutu II may have to have them remade.
This reminded me of the Irish royal jewels stolen at the start of the last century and never seen again. I also found an interesting link to other sets of royal jewels.
Make sure you check out the links on the most expensive jewels at auction. As for poor King Tutu I am sure he will be just fine without his bling.

The tomb of an important 7th century Maya Queen K'abel has been found in Guatemala. The find is especially important as it is one of only a handful of Maya graves where the owners name is known.
The article is interesting and thorough well worth a read with nice images and a video.
