No one in this group found any jewels.
"You can say the climber who made this find is someone very honest," local gendarme chief Sylvain Merly said.
The prefect's office of Savoie will now contact the Indian authorities to try to return the jewels to the family of the original owner. It is thought that the jewels are more likely to have come from the 1966 crash. The local French paper, the Dauphiné Libéré reported that if an owner is not found, under French law, the jewels could be given back to the climber, who has not been named.
