Asian gold worth £10,500 was stolen by burglars who smashed their way into a home in Dedworth on Monday.
Police said a laptop and cash was also taken from the property off Vale Road between 3.30pm and 4.30pm.
They said the offenders gained entry by smashing a window before carrying out an untidy search of one of the bedrooms.
The force said they believe the criminals made off in a silver BMW 3 series car, that was seen travelling in the direction of Vale Road towards Windsor Racecourse.
Detective Constable Alex Beever, investigating officer, said he is keen to speak to anyone who saw a car matching the description before or after the burglary.
He added: "We are currently reviewing nearby CCTV as part of our investigation and are liaising with officers from Slough, as they have experienced a number of similar incidents since April last year."
Det Con Beever also urged people with high-value gold to follow crime prevention tips to prevent further such offences in the Royal Borough.
Call him on police non-emergency number 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111 if you have information.
