A diamond hidden in Uptown Charlotte

Posted By on Mon, Apr 12, 2010 at 4:37 PM

You're walking along Trade Street during your lunch hour one day, when something on the ground glistens attractively. "Probably a piece of glass reflecting the light from the sun," you think. You walk closer to inspect, and lo and behold, it's a diamond ring. A solitaire cut, at least 1 carat, maybe bigger.

What do you do? Do you lean down nonchalantly, cunningly sweep that baby into your pocket and walk away, silently plotting how you'll get the most money off that jewel? Or do you pick it up like a concerned citizen and take it to the nearest lost and found?

Yeah, I don't know what I'd do either.

But if you're itching to get your hands on some ice, and not spend a ton of money doing so, you might want to check out the Charlotte Diamond Dash, coming up April 24.
