The jewellery stolen from Brett Morrison's home is still missing.

It was a cruel blow for Mr Morrison, whose soul mate and wife Sarah died of bowel cancer just over a year ago.

On Tuesday morning, Mr Morrison left his Papamoa home for about an hour. When he came home he discovered his house had been burgled.

His late wife Sarah's jewellery - including her engagement and wedding rings and the earrings she wore on their wedding day - had been stolen.

Sarah's grandmother's antique gold ring with green stone had also been stolen in the robbery, among other personal items.

Mr Morrison, who was at work today, was hoping there would be a surprise for him in his letterbox when he got home.

"I'm still really hopeful about the jewellery coming back all the support has been great and surely it will pay off."

Getting the pieces back would be overwhelming, he said.
