  • Graff Diamonds at $65 Million – Thieves entered the luxury jewelry store in London and ran off with more than 40 pieces of jewels valued at $65 million. While the thieves were caught, none of the jewels were recovered.
  • Schiphol Airport at $77 Million – Thieves dressed as airline workers pulled off the perfect crime, snatching jewels valued at $77 million during a transfer operation at an airport in Amsterdam. Neither the thieves nor the jewels have been found.
