Can't believe all the people talking about "only" $6500... this Farkette would be appalled to have that much spent on a silly bauble. We've got a life to build together, why the hell would you drop that kind of money on a ring?! Craziness. And to then say that's not enough and talk about spending twice that? Who ARE you people and what do you do for a living?!

So there are "not one, not two, not three, not four, not five, not six, but seven" rings out there?

And about a $6500 diamond ring: a friend of mine bought his wife's engagement ring at a pawn shop for $300. His then-fiancee was so impressed by the ring, she looked up the ring on the internet and found it being sold by the original manufacturer for $2500.

So, what's this $6500 diamond ring really worth on the used market? I'm thinking drop a zero from it for retail sale, and divide that number by 3 if you're trying to sell it.

powhound: From the Goodwill facebook page:

Lost and found: A Goodwill shopper found a diamond ring in the pocket of capri pants bought at our Coon Rapids store. Now she needs your help to find its owner. Check out this story and direct message us if this ring could be yours. Please include a description of your ring; an image is even better. We trust the ring will be back on the finger of its happy owner soon!

The gypsies will be all over this

"Thompson is leaving the background-checking up to Goodwill. She did, however, have a very specific way she'd like the scenario to end."

Why? Goodwill didn't spot the ring originally before they put the pants out for sale, they can't be competent enough to figure out who it belongs to.

My guess is, the store manager or other Goodwill official gets hold of it "for safekeeping".
