* A lot of people forget that the ''PinkPanther'' was originally a diamond targeted by thieves, and not the cartoon cat. It was kept in a glass case, naturally.

* In ''Literature/AgainstADarkBackground'' the Crownstar Addendum is the most valuable piece of jewelry in the solar system. It's kept in a glass case... in a heavily-secured vault guarded by the entire military force of a city-state. [[spoiler: And in a subversion, the thing in the glass case isn't actually the real Crownstar Addendum: [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy the genuine article is kept hidden behind a random metal panel wrapped in oily rags.]]]]

* In the Literature/WhateleyUniverse some people are GenreSavvy enough to think about this. After Team Kimba stops a team of mutant ninjas raiding the campus, the school has the secret devise the ninjas were carrying, and the headmistress shows them the glass case in the school museum. But it's a hologram of the real thing, which is locked up a lot more securely.

* Happens in ''TheRealGhostbusters'', notably in a Lovecraft tribute episode where, once again, the Necronomicon was on display to the public. You'd think they'd learn after a while.
