Kim Kardashian West's ''sentimental'' diamond necklace was dropped by the thieves from her Paris Robbery in 2016.

The 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' star was left terrified when burglars broke into her Paris apartment and stole $10 million of jewellery back in October 2016, including the $4 million 20-carat engagement ring given to her by her husband, Kanye West.

However, the star shared an incredible story with her Instagram followers on Monday evening (11.02.19), of how she got back the ''first piece of jewellery'' she bought with her pay cheque.

Kim captioned the snap of her wearing the piece: ''2007 throwback. So this necklace that I have on is a diamond cross from Jacob and it was the first piece of jewelry that I bought when I got my first check.

''When I was at robbedd this was taken from me. However on the way out the robbers dropped one piece of jewelry in the street and this was it. It's very sentimental to me. Just wanted to share (sic)''

The 38-year-old star - who has North, five, Saint, three and Chicago, 12 months, with Kanye - previously admitted that she was finally beginning to be ''OK'' with the experience because she has ''learned so much from it''.

Speaking at Variety and Rolling Stone's Criminal Justice Reform Summit, she said: ''I just felt like taking myself out of being a victim. I don't ever really have a victim mentality. I've always tried to really genuinely learn.

And I feel like the way I was living my lifestyle, not that anyone should go through that, but I learned so much from it, and I'm OK with my experience, and I do believe that it was meant to happen to me because I'm a different person because of it.

''When you become a mom, you change anyway, but I think when your life is at stake over material items, it's just ... all of that stuff goes out the door. Like, none of it matters. Just my priorities completely changed, and what is important to me changed. I'm a better mom because of it. The things I'll teach my kids are different.''
