An East Coast jeweler wants $60,000 worth of its gems back from Paris Hilton.

An insurer for jeweler Damiani has sued Hilton, demanding she return the borrowed jewelry stolen from her Los Angeles home nearly 3 years ago.

Police gave the heiress a bagful of gems after arresting five people in connection with the burglary, but Damiani said Hilton has made no attempt to return them.

The suit claims Damiani loaned Hilton the gems in 2007.
