It was just an ordinary day for a lady from London. She was roaming around West Middlesex Hospital flea market.
It is a place where you can find antique merchandise. The lady was just doing some window shopping when suddenly she decided to stop in a car boot sale and found an interesting ring.
She liked the design of the ring so she bought it for just $13 or 650 pesos. For 30 years, the lady wore it every time and everywhere she goes.
Until one day, when she was in a grocery store, a man was looking at her ring. The man followed her all way out and said that she was not the original owner of it.
One morning, she forgot to wear the ring so she went back to her house just to get the ring. She stared at it and decided to sell this ring to that jewelry man.
Afterward, she went to Sotheby’s London to have her ring check and the eagerness to know who the real owner was.
The woman expected to get some reward from the real owner since she took care of it for a very long time. After how many days, the jewelry shop staff told her that the ring was real after it has undergone some tests.
