The suspects stood next to the counter for several minutes as the valuables were being packed before leaving the store, saying they needed to withdraw extra cash to purchase the goods.

Staff later noticed the jewellery had been stolen when the trio failed to return.

The man is thought to be in his 60s and was wearing a long black jacket, waist coat, multi-coloured scarf, blue trousers and black shoes.

One of the women is said to be between 50- and 60-years-old and the other in her 20s. They were both wearing dark clothes.
