A PIECE OF jewellery stolen from Kim Kardashian during an armed robbery of her Paris apartment last week has been reportedly recovered from a Paris sidewalk.

TMZ reports that a diamond studded cross was apparently dropped by the robbers as they made their getaway.

The gossip site estimates the necklace’s worth at $33,180 (€29,790), which pales in comparison to the value of the overall haul of jewellery stolen which was estimated to be worth in the region of €9 million.

The necklace however is being tested by French police for DNA from the burglars which could be used to catch the culprits, according to TMZ.

35-year-old reality star and businesswoman Kardashian was tied up at gunpoint during the assault which took place just after midnight  on Monday 3 October.

Although “badly shaken”, Kardashian was otherwise unharmed.

Police said that five men were involved in the robbery, with two of them entering Kardashian’s bedroom dressed as police officers.

The star, one of the most recognisable of all US celebrities, had made a series of high-profile appearances at Paris Fashion Week.

Immediately upon hearing news of the assault her husband, rapper Kanye West, cancelled a headline show at a New York music festival mid-set.

He has since resumed his American tour. Kardashian herself returned to Los Angeles three days after the robbery.
