NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — Talk about finding a diamond in the rough.
When New York City teaching assistant Hager Elsayed discovered that her three-carat diamond engagement ring was gone, she tore apart her apartment looking for it — to no avail.
Who wouldn’t think it was gone for good?
“Beautiful ring. It’s probably around, I don’t know, around $4,800,” said subway station agent Anthony Tiralosi, who works at the Fort Hamilton Parkway Station. “Probably about 20 years ago, I was in the jewelry business. So, as soon as I saw the ring, I said, ‘Whoever lost this ring is sick.'”
