    I found a diamond ring in my compost pile!

    That's right,I found a nice 24 K gold diamond ring in my compost pile on Sunday.It's really strange
    not really sure how it got there,all I can think is,since October of 2014,I have been adding those big brown paper bags of grass/leaves into my pile,along with cow manure.On Sunday I shoveled
    some on to my screens to make it smaller and out pops this ring.
    I went back and checked Craigs List and asked my friends who gave me the clippings,they all said no it wasn't theirs .So I cashed it in and got $975.00 for it.

    Wow, that is amazing. Must have been a very nice diamond, too.

    Wow congrats! I've dug 2,000 holes and driven just as far going to the beach and haven't found a ring that nice! Maybe I need a compost pile!

    .... I think it may be mine. Was it a 24 K Gold ring that you checked on CL about? In with my cow manure? The money will be fine since you sold my ring.

    It came in bird poop? It would be kind of hard to rake it up with leaves

    It reminds me of an 18kt gold starfish pendant I found in my house. No one knows where it came from?? Go figure
