A $ 750,000 ($ 257 million) Cartier diamond ring has disappeared from the British Museum, the BBC said.
The jewel that an anonymous donor gave to the institution disappeared in 2011 and was reported to the police. The spokesperson of the museum said that, according to their rules, five years after the disappearance of an object was definitively established. The disappearance of the diamond ring was featured in this year’s annual budget of the museum.
Since then, the institution has revised its security and collection management methods and has made significant investments for better security throughout the museum.
