The Mystery of the Missing Bulgari Jewels Haunts Winona Ryder

lunes, 1 de diciembre de 2008 |

Following the much talked about 2001 shoplifting incident, Winona Ryder has entered the public eye again due to an alleged jewelry theft. A Bulgari bracelet and ring that she had borrowed for an event organized by Marie Claire magazine have gone missing. The 37-year-old actress wore the $124,000 worth of jewelry items on November 20 in Madrid, at a photo shoot for the publication.

When Winona Ryder left the Spanish hotel where she had stayed, the pieces of jewelry disappeared. However, the story is not as clear as it may seem. According to, the “Reality Bites” star announced that the diamond-encrusted bracelet and ring went missing after she had checked out of the hotel, leaving the blings in her hotel room so that a Marie Claire member of staff would pick them up.

On the other hand, consistent with a report by French celebrity magazine Voici, Winona Ryder claimed that she had handed the jewels to the receptionist of the hotel for safekeeping. However, hotel management denies all allegations, saying they had not been given the jewels and that no surveillance footage showed the actress leaving the diamonds at the hotel’s front desk.

Recently, Winona Ryder fell ill while she was flying to London, thus forcing the plane to land immediately. Although she was hospitalized and subsequently released, the cause of her illness was not disclosed.

On December 12, 2001, the actress was arrested on shoplifting charges in Beverly Hills, California, after allegedly stealing from a Saks Fifth Avenue store $5,500 worth of designer clothes and accessories. One year later, she was sentenced to three years’ probation, 480 hours of community service, $3,700 in fines and $6,355 in restitution.
