On October 3, 2016, the mother-of-three was tied up, gagged and held at gunpoint while staying in Paris for Fashion Week. The thieves got away with millions of dollars worth of Kim’s belongings — including several incredible pieces from her personal jewelry collection.

That said, the KKW Beauty mogul revealed that one item in particular was left behind and even three years later, she continues to be grateful. “2007 throwback. So this necklace that I have on is a diamond cross from Jacob and it was the first piece of jewelry that I bought when I got my first check,” she began.
“When I was at robbed 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.”
While we can’t be sure, it’s likely that Kim is opening up about her robbery because Paris Fashion Week starts up on February 25. As it stands, we’re unsure if she’ll be attending any of the shows. Of course, if she opted to stay in the U.S. nobody would blame her. It’s a terribly traumatic thing she went through.
Naturally, Kiki’s fans flocked to her page with words of comfort and support. “Glad you got it back, Kim. Hold this necklace tight,” one user commented. “Wow. That’s so amazing. It was meant to stay with you. Treasure it always,” added another.
We commend Kim for continuing to be vulnerable and sharing her story with the world. You’re an inspiration.
