Hollywood movie actress Winona Ryder finds herself at the center of new controversy after reportedly losing borrowed Bulgari diamonds loaned to her for an awards ceremony appearance in Spain. The jewels are said to be worth $125,000.
According to TMZ, Winona had been lent a diamond-encrusted bracelet and ring to wear to a Marie Claire magazine party in Madrid on Sunday, November 23. She also had been given a dress, shoes and some other stuff to wear to the event.
The bracelet and ring went missing after she reportedly handed them to the front desk at the hotel where she stayed, in an envelope to be kept in the venue's safe. However, the hotel bosses failed to locate surveillance footage to prove her handing the pricey stuff. Bulgari executives, thus, have asked police to investigate the missing gems. At press time, police are not considering Winona as suspect in the case.
And while investigation is still on-going, TMZ claims as being informed by its sources that the bracelet and ring might be missing from Winona's hotel room, claiming the star checked out of the hotel the following day after the event and left all the loaned stuff in her room as "no one from Marie Claire was around to collect" them. The dress and other stuff were all still in the room, whereas the jewels went missing.
TMZ, furthermore, claims Winona "never said she had taken the jewels to the front desk, and whoever planted the story may be covering up for someone who had access to the room after she left." A spokesperson for Winona has not yet responded to requests for comment. Representatives for Bulgari have declined to address report on their missing jewels.
