A celebrity jeweler says Courtney Love hasn't returned nearly $114,000 worth of borrowed baubles, and the New York-based company is suing to get them back.

Jacob & Co. says in a lawsuit filed Monday that the singer borrowed two white gold and diamond chains, a white gold bracelet and a pair of white gold and diamond pave earrings on Sept. 21. The company says she's returned only the bracelet, despite demands for the other pieces.

Love's spokesman and lawyer didn't immediately respond to messages.

Love fronted the band Hole and is the widow of Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain.

Jacob & Co. was founded by "Jacob the Jeweler" Arabov. He gained cachet in hip-hop circles before going to federal prison in 2008 for lying to investigators looking into a drug ring.
