Burglars may have made off with $5 million to $10 million in jewelry from Icebox Diamonds & Watches in Atlanta earlier this month after tying up the store manager and his wife in their home, authorities say.

Two gunmen wearing ski masks entered the home and demanded codes to the store safes, WSB-TV reports.

The couple were not injured, although the gunmen threatened to kill them, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution has reported. But media reports say they were bound with zip ties and duct tape.

Two men broke into the Buckhead store at about 11:30 p.m. and spent about two hours there, police said. They emptied two safes, taking jewelry and watches.

Initial reports said the stolen goods were were hundreds of thousands of dollars, not the millions that police are now reporting.

Cash and jewelry were also stolen from the jeweler’s home, according to the Journal-Constitution.

She Wanted to Spend More Time with Her Kids. She Called Wilkerson.

Your children are precious. More precious than gold? Absolutely! Just ask Lesley Ann Davis, owner of Lesley Ann Jewels, an independent jewelry store that — until the end of 2023 — had quite a following in Houston, Texas. To spend more time with her four sons, all in high school, she decided to close her store. Luckily, she was familiar with Wilkerson and called them as soon as she knew she wanted to move on to bigger, better and more family-focused things. Was she happy with her decision? Yes, she was. Says Davis, “Any owner looking to make that life change, looking to retire, looking to close, looking for a pause in their career, I would recommend Wilkerson. Hands down!”
