A diamond ring appraised at $17,000 donated to charityUs girls often stop at Goodwill to donate old clothes, but could we ever part with our precious jewels, even for a good cause?

Probably not!

According to the Patriot News, one Keystone, Pennsylvania, Goodwill store discovered a gigantic diamond ring in the donation pile. It was soon appraised and valued at – wait for it – over $17,000. This makes it the largest donation in the store’s history.

We’re amazed at the person who dropped the gemstone off. How could someone tire of such a spectacular piece of ice?

The news source reports that the ring "has a two-carat European-cut diamond, surrounded 14 smaller diamonds."

Talk about an incredible gift! Maybe we can round up our old jeans and make the store an even trade?

Many people have called the store to claim the ring as their own, but Goodwill representatives are carefully guarding a detailed description of the piece and do not believe they’ve found the owner thus far.ADNFCR-2807-ID-19768355-ADNFCR
