But not before a search party spent hours digging through a municipal dump.

Here’s a lost-and-found tale that will restore your faith in humanity. According to The Jewish Week, a $10,000 diamond engagement ring that was unwittingly thrown away by a bride-to-be in Jerusalem was discovered and returned days later by a good-hearted elderly man. The home garbage bag containing the ring eventually made its way to a municipal dump, where a group of volunteers organized by the family spent hours sifting through tons of garbage.

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
