Diamond In The Rough

Indiana woman Christi Hansen is one lucky lady.
Nearly five years ago, she lost a half-carat marquis diamond from her beloved engagement ring, while she was at work.
"Oh lordy!"
She searched frantically for the jewel (which had been sitting on top of the ring with channel-set baguettes on all four sides), and her colleagues joined in the hunt as well - but to no avail.
Christi: "We basically tore my whole desk apart, on our hands and knees going over the floor. I even went through all the bathrooms."
She went so far as to load her car up with full rubbish bags from the office, took them home, laid a tarpaulin out in her garage and literally with rubber gloves went through every piece of trash, hoping to find it in there!
When it was clear the diamond was nowhere to be found, Hansen's hubby bought her a replacement engagement ring.
Man of the hour
But four and a half years after the diamond disappeared, Wayne Sutton, an office printer technician, found it! He was servicing the printer at Hansen's workplace, thought a lodged object was a piece of paper that wouldn't voila!
Christi Hansen couldn't believe her eyes. She plans to keep wearing the replacement ring, make the recovered diamond into a necklace...and go on a diet to return to her engagement days weight.
But as legendary Mae West once said: "I never worry about diets. The only carrots that interest me are the number of carats in a diamond."
