Occasionally, we catch wind of a significant robbery that makes waves in the retail world; apparently London´s Graff Diamonds was victim of a heist that lost the boutique approx $65 million according to CNN.  A pair of suit-clad robbers entered the store during the afternoon and threatened the staff with guns before making off with 43 items including rings, bracelets, watches, and necklaces.  A female staffer was temporarily used as a hostage before the team switched from their BMW, to a Mercedes, to another car.  This is just the latest in a series of high-profile robberies in the  Bond Street area.
