The Crown Jewels of Alderaan were one of the last surviving treasures from the planet Alderaan. They were the royal property of the House of Organa and were kept safely guarded with Leia Organa after the first Death Star destroyed her homeworld during the Galactic Civil War.
Some three years after the Battle of Yavin, Leia used the jewels as collateral to finance a new squadron of T-65 X-wing starfighters. She removed and kept her jewels in a safety deposit box at the Bank of Aargau. Darth Vader hired the Assassin's Guild to take out Viscount Tardi to distract Leia's attention while the Sith Lord achieved his true objective of stealing the crown jewels.
Sergeant Rolex was later assigned to investigate the theft.
