1964, Helen W. Drutt English's jewelry box contained the following: a gold- plated circle pin from her high school days, her grandmother's cameo brooch, and a replica from the shop at the University Museum of the University of Pennsylvania. Twenty-two years later, the Center City gallery owner's jewelry is on display at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. There's not a circle pin or a cameo in the lot. Her 150-plus pieces stretch the conventional definition of jewelry. There are recognizable forms - brooches, necklaces, bracelets and rings - beside radical pieces that lie in a netherland between garment, jewelry, sculpture and, occasionally, instrument of torture.

They were then able to pop the lock of a walk-in safe and take off with an estimated $1 million worth of rings, watches and other jewelry. They escaped the way they came in, police said. Left behind were a hammer and a crowbar.

A gang of deft jewel thieves who police said stole more than $100,000 in gems yesterday from a King of Prussia shop were so polished that it took employees more than five minutes to realize that they had been robbed. Ray Kirkpatrick, manager of Wayne Jewelers & Silversmiths in the King of Prussia Plaza, said he had been a victim of "that old teamwork routine. " He said that at least four people, perhaps five, entered the store at 2:45 p.m. Kirkpatrick said he went to the rear of the store to show the woman in the group a silver comb and brush set. Meanwhile, other employees showed items to the rest of the group, all men, at display cases spread throughout the store, Kirkpatrick said.

Lori Schiavi keeps her sons, Luke, 8, and Paul, 5, close to her heart - in the form of two silver pendants, each with one of the boy's fingerprints on one side and his initials on the other. After ordering online, Schiavi of West Chester received a mold kit with instructions for getting the best print - having her boys use clean, dry fingers, for instance, to push into sculpting clay. She then baked it to harden and shipped it back in a prepaid envelope. It was Schiavi's Mother's Day gift to herself this year, a $200 keepsake that turned out to be not only personal, but fashionable.

For Rea Rossi, sound has always been a tricky thing: elusive and slippery, wrangled only with therapy, concentration, and excellent hearing aids. So Rossi, 29, an artist based in Fishtown, began contemplating how to capture it and make it tangible, solid enough to wrap around a wrist or drape over her shoulders. The resulting artworks - visualizations meant to represent sound waves created in a computer-assisted design program and 3D-printed from nylon - are somewhere on the spectrum between jewelry and sculpture.

NOTHING WAS going to stop these thieves. Not a locked basement door, not two solid walls, not even an industrial-grade safe. They wanted the goods, and they got them Wednesday night, cleaning out about $250,000 worth of diamonds and fine jewelry from Time & Gold, a shop in the heart of Center City. "I couldn't believe it; it was like part of a movie," Danny Hosmi, the store's owner, told the Daily News hours later on the sidewalk outside his ruined business, on 19th Street near Chestnut.
