Diamonds worth an estimated 1.5 million dollars have vanished from a safe deposit at the annual Amberiff amber fair on the Polish Baltic Sea port city of Gdansk, the Polish PAP news agency reported Thursday quoting police.

The diamonds belonged to Belgian jewelers displaying their goods at Amberiff, the world's largest annual amber trade fair.
