Rare Diamond Donated to Salvation Army Up for Bid
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — An antique and rare diamond dropped into a Salvation Army kettle around Christmas time — is now for sale on eBay.
Meierotto’s in the Northland appraised the diamond for the Salvation Army, saying it’s a .83 carat old European cut diamond. The style of the cut is not used any more, so Meierotto’s says it’s likely this was a family heirloom and could be as much as 100 years old.
Meierotto’s designed a white gold setting for the ring which includes side diamonds totally .50 carats. The ring is up for auction now on E-Bay and 100-percent of the proceeds will go back to the Salvation Army so they can help people in the Kansas City area. At last check, the bidding was up to over $2,100.
