Man To Move Out Of The Dog House After $23K Ring He Accidentally Sold Is Returned

If you love something, you should let it go and see if it comes back to you because that’s true love, right? But if the something happens to be a $23,000 diamond ring your husband accidentally sold for a couple bucks at a garage sale, letting it go is no fun. Luckily for one California couple, that valued item did return after the Internet caught wind of the situation.

All’s well that ends well for the Orange County twosome, because it turns out people out there pay attention to news coverage when it involves a lost, pricy item.

ABC 7 in Los Angeles says the woman who bought the watch box that had the ring inside it  — unbeknownst to the husband who proffered the item at a local yard sale — gave it to her daughter and son-in-law.

When they discovered the jewelry inside the box that had sold for $10, they tracked down the couple and reunited them with the ring.

“I don’t think I’ll be taking it off anytime soon,” the woman joked. Or rather, she probably wasn’t joking and will at least allow her husband to move back into the main house.
