A diamond cross necklace belonging to Kim Kardashian has been retrieved by French police after it was dropped by armed robbers who stormed her Paris hotel room last week.

The reality TV star was bound, gagged, and held at gunpoint in her private apartment as thieves made off with jewellery and cellphones.

Kim was left "badly shaken" by the security breach and returned to the U.S. after giving a statement to local authorities.

It has since been revealed a platinum-mounted diamond cross reportedly snatched during the robbery was found outside the complex by a passerby the day after the attack.

The news emerges days after it was reported Kim had filed an insurance claim for 13 items of jewellery, totalling $5.6 million (R79,65 million). Her second engagement ring from husband Kanye West - a 20-carat, emerald-cut diamond by Lorraine Schwartz, valued at $4 million (R57 million) - is said to be among the items stolen.

The rapper postponed a pair of shows last week to remain by his wife's side, but he resumed his Saint Pablo Tour in his native Chicago, Illinois on Friday.

Meanwhile, Kim's family reality show, Keeping Up with the Kardashians, has been placed on an indefinite hiatus as she continues to recover from the terrifying ordeal.
