The young model, whose identity was not revealed, told the police that she drank too much and inadvertently put Rose's three gold-and-diamond necklaces in her handbag, realising her mistake only after waking up at lunchtime. She subsequently returned the items to a police station in central Paris.
About 130 invited guests and members of Axl's entourage were allowed into the lounge where the jewellery was stolen.
The band are scheduled to play in Moenchengladbach, Germany, on Friday before returning to France as part of a tour of Europe and Israel that runs through to July 22nd.
