In some historical instances extraordinary measures have been taken against looters during times of crisis. It’s not uncommon in some countries for looters to be shot, either by police, army, or business owners.

Elegantly designed and rendered in platinum over 18 gold, this refined and regal Belle Époque jewel dates back to the turn-of-the-last-century. The graceful open design sparkles throughout with a glittering array of small, bright white European-cut diamonds, totaling 1.30 carats. A classic beauty measuring just shy of 1 1/2 by 1 3/8 inches. The newer platinum chain measures 18 inches.
This idol in the form of a lock or handbag was likely carried to indicate that the bearer was of high office. This extraordinary example was found originally in several pieces. The idol is carved from grey chlorite and measures approximately 27 cm in width. One side bears two pairs of birds of prey, and the other side bears two tethered bulls facing each other.
