On Monday, Kim Kardashian posted a 2007 throwback photo of herself on Instagram — and revealed the one special piece of jewelry that survived her harrowing 2016 Paris robbery.
“So this necklace that I have on is a diamond cross from Jacob [the Jeweler] and it was the first piece of jewelry that I bought when I got my first check,” the 38-year-old reality star explained in her caption.
“When I was at robbed [sic] this was taken from me. However on the way out the robbers dropped one piece of jewelry in the street and this was it. It’s very sentimental to me. Just wanted to share.”
In October 2016, the Kimoji CEO was held at gunpoint in her hotel room during Paris Fashion Week after armed men posing as cops were able to infiltrate the building. The thieves robbed Kardashian of $10 million dollars’ worth of jewelry, including the $4 million, 20-carat engagement ring given to her by Kanye West.
The traumatizing ordeal temporarily caused the mobile mogul to pull back from all big public events, as well as completely stop flaunting and wearing pricey jewelry, and even stop posting on social media altogether.
But Kardashian’s since returned to her more flashy ways, even returning to Paris to attend Virgil Abloh’s first runway show as the creative director of Louis Vuitton menswear.
“It feels refreshing to face my fears and overcome them,” she wrote about returning to the city in a blog post on her website at the time. “For me, there’s no point in staying in a f—ked-up state of mind. ‘Feel it, go through it and move on’ has always been how I try to live my life.”
