Sometimes randomness is really not random, and this story is proof.
55-year-old British woman Debra Goddard works for the charity, she raised over 20 children, informs Rus.Media.
33 years ago a woman bought at a flea market ring for £ 10 (400 UAH at the contemporary exchange rate). All these years, the ring lay at the woman in a box until a disaster happened: mom Debra lost money because of fraud. Then the woman remembered about the ring, only now she had no idea how much it really costs.
She took the ring to a jeweler, and he almost fainted, because the stone in the ring was not just any glass, but a real diamond weighing carats 26,27.
Debra went to the auction house. There the authenticity of the stone confirmed. The ring was sold at auction for 740 000 pounds (about 25 mln.)
After all deductions Debra has received 470 000 pounds (about 16 million UAH). She thinks it’s karma for all the difficulties faced by her family. The woman sent the mother to rest and tells that she spent her vacation in Barbados, saw Tom Jones, seen Celine Dion in Vegas and bought a fur coat. Debra says that money does not have any value.
Debra helps her mother, opened a jewelry firm and wrote a book.
If the sale of the book will be able to gain money, Debra sobiraet send them to charity.
