Footage shows a shop assistant opening a locked drawer to show the couple a ring.
As the woman is trying on the ring, the man is seen creeping behind the employee, grabbing the bracelet while she’s distracted by the woman.
The pair leave the store a short time later.
The man is Caucasian, approximately 175cm tall with short dark hair and possibly aged in his fifties or sixties.
The woman is Caucasian with dark brown hair and dark eyes and was seen wearing dark jeans and a white shirt.
Police say both the man and woman may have had New Zealand accents.
Anyone who recognises the pair or has any information about the theft is urged to contact Police.
