NEW YORK (Reuters) - New York City police said they are investigating the theft of 10 pieces of jewelry worth $127,000 that were taken from actress Julianne Moore's Manhattan apartment several months ago.

The jewelry went missing between June 6 and August 28, while 15-25 workers were doing renovations on the actress's home in the West Village, police said on Thursday.

The stolen jewelry was comprised of 10 pieces -- seven of which were made by Cartier, according to The New York Post. The most expensive item was a $33,000 Cartier platinum diamond tennis bracelet. Four Cartier watches, worth a combined $77,800, were also taken, said the newspaper reported.

Moore, 51, had left New York to film a remake of the movie version of "Carrie" in Toronto over the North American summer.

A representative for the Oscar-nominated actress did not return a request seeking comment.

The theft was not reported to police until earlier this week.

Awww, so sorry to hear that Julianne’s jewels were taken. Maybe she should call her buddy Barry to get him to use our money to replace them. Awww, don’t you all just feel so sorry for poor Julianne.
