The Jewelers Security Alliance offers recommendations on this type of incident:

1. Jewelers need to follow the proper protocols at home, such as good locks and alarms, not admitting unknown persons, and not providing information on their home life on social media.

2. Keeping jewelry merchandise in the home presents serious risks. Jewelers need to keep merchandise securely protected other than in the home.
