    $5000.00 Diamond Ring Return

    Last night I received a very frantic call from a guy who said that his girlfriend had lost her Diamond Engagement Ring over the weekend. I asked all the usual questions, how big, white or yellow gold,or was is platinum... stuff like that... We set up a time for me to go this morning and search an area only 30 x 50 relatively small...she proceeded to tell me the event on how she lost it and that they were having some fun with a fire and cooking marsh mallows... So I moved the fire pit and searched like crazy... after 1 1/2 search NOTHING... I just couldn't believe that I had to walk away... I felt miserable... I even called her back after leaving and was trying to think of all the other possibilities, I even suggested to look in the sink trap, maybe it was there.... well after a few hours I thought some more.... The only place we didn't look was in the fire pit, I called her back and told her to look in there... she said she had looked in there last night in the dark... I said go look again, you must all know the rest of the story... sure enough the BLACKENED 14 K White Gold 1 Carrot Square Cut Diamond Ring was in the ashes.... This ring was $5000.00 A great turn out for her and her boyfriend...Click image for larger version.

    Great story. Our campfires end up with so much aluminum slag it would have taken an intensive and quite detailed hand search.

    I'm happy she got it back!

    She's lucky, or the husband has some explaining to do...

    Diamonds are carbon. They'll burn if they get hot enough.

    Wow, nice save! Its amazing the diamond didn't crack in the fire. I know they are formed with heat and pressure, but fire does funny things to crystals sometimes. Hope the gold cleans up for her!

    It's great to see it was found in the ashes, one would think it was a goner being lost in the fire.
