Yanill Taveras, of Providence, was charged Monday by Cranston police.
Online court records don't list an attorney who could comment on her behalf. A listed phone number for her couldn't be found.
Ross-Simons Jewelers contacted police in January after finding jewelry in an office where it was not supposed to be stored, and discovering 121 pieces worth $222,000 were missing.
Police say the 26-year-old Taveras, a former employee, recently pawned large amounts of jewelry.
Police say detectives retrieved some of the jewelry and Ross-Simons' management identified it.
Taveras was released on $4,500 surety bail. She's due back in court April 25.
