PARIS — The latest in a rash of jewelry heists on both sides of the Atlantic took place when two men held up the De Beers boutique in Printemps department store here and made off with jewelry worth between 1 million and 3 million euros, or $2.7 million and $4 million at current exchange, in the early evening hours Tuesday.
Armed with handguns and equipped with bulletproof vests, the robbers entered the South African diamond dealer’s stand, located on the first floor of the department store, at around 6:45 p.m., a spokeswoman for the district attorney’s office in Paris confirmed. They did not fire their weapons and no one was harmed, she said.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
