Federal authorities want to seize disgraced “Real Housewives of Salt Lake City” star Jen Shah’s jewelry as part of her forfeiture obligation.
When Shah struck her guilty plea deal, the reality star agreed to pay $6.5 million from the illegal earnings she made from her telemarketing scheme that she led from 2012 to 2021.
Authorities haven’t been able to track down the assets Shah acquired with cash, but they did, however, obtain a diamond-encrusted silver necklace with a snowflake pendant from Baranof Jewelers, according to Wednesday’s filing, obtained by Page Six.
They also located an 18-karat rose gold and diamond ring.
Investigators from the Department of Homeland Security want to seize the rest of Shah’s bling to put toward her forfeiture obligation. The filing did not share price tags for the items they’re seeking.
Shah’s attorney didn’t immediately return Page Six’s request for comment. Her team also has yet to respond to the filing.

The disgraced Bravolebrity, 49, was sentenced to more than six years behind bars, but since reporting to Bryan Federal Prison Camp (BFC) her stay already has been reduced by one year.
At her hearing in January, Shah apologized for the people she hurt – namely the elderly – and her family.
“My actions have hurt innocent people. I want to apologize to all of the victims and their families,” Shah said, before promising to reimburse her victims.
Last week, Shah’s rep confirmed to People that she already began making restitution payments to those she swindled.
“I have spoken with my client Jen Shah over the phone this week — she is doing well and remains committed towards making her victims whole,” the rep shared.
“She has initiated her payments towards restitution, and we hope to have her home as soon as possible so that she may resume life with her family and work, putting this chapter of her life behind her.”
