A woman found a diamond ring in the pocket of a pair of capris she bought at Goodwill.
Deb Thompson went to the Coon Rapids, Minn., branch of Goodwill to buy a pair of $3.99 jean capris that her daughter had thought she might like.
When she returned home and tried the pants on, Thompson discovered a diamond ring in the right pocket. “I took the ring out of my pocket and I sat on the floor with my daughter and her fiancé. I put my arm out in the center, and I opened it in my palm and we all just went, 'Wow. Oh my God," she said according to ABC News.
Thompson decided to try and find the ring’s original owner. She is currently working with Goodwill and has posted her story in the “Lost and Found” section of the store’s Facebook page.
As of 3pm Wednesday, the ad has received around seven responses from people claiming to be the ring’s rightful owner. However, none of the claims appear to be substantiated.
"This is how I see this whole story ending: Somebody comes forward, says they lost the ring, says they're insured and have the papers to prove it. That's how I'm hoping this ends. So far, it's not that way, but we'll see. Only time will tell," said Thompson
According to the Huffington Post, the ring has been appraised between $5,000 and $6,500 and for the mean time remains with Thompson.
