Ring nicked off billionaire's finger in her Paris home

12 October 2016, 08:00

Paris - A 75-year-old Taiwanese billionaire was robbed last week at her Paris home of jewels worth up to $220 000,  police said on Tuesday.

Shaw-Lan Wang, a publisher who is also the main shareholder of the French fashion label Lanvin, lives in the chic 16th district of the French capital.

Wang, a director of the Taiwanese newspaper United Daily News, was taking an afternoon nap when the robbery occurred on October 4, the police source said.

It was the day after celebrity Kim Kardashian lost millions worth of jewels in a heist nearby, but the two robberies were not linked, the source said.

Two men broke into Wang's apartment while she was sleeping and made off with jewels - including a ring she was wearing - he said, adding that she was unharmed.

They also stole telephones and "various luxury items", he said.
