The stolen loot worth €1 billion included the famed 49-carat Dresden White Diamond, which was discovered in India and bought by Saxony's royal family in the 18th century, the breast star of the Polish Order of the White Eagle that belonged to the King of Poland and a diamond-set sword.

The Police Saxony identified the items of jewellery stolen from the Green Vault museum in Dresden on their website.
