Diamond given with change

A woman donated a diamond ring by accident to a man she was giving spare change to in Nanaimo.

Trinda Gayek, who resides on Salt Spring Island, dumped her change out of her wallet to give to the man.

She reportedly forgot her diamond ring was in her pouch and donated that too.

Gayek had stopped the man herself to offer spare change, saying he looked like he could use help.

“He didn’t steal the ring... There’s no criminal intent here," Gayek told CTV.

"This is just one of those situations and I sure would like to get the ring back.”

She noted that the man seemed appreciative for her donation, and hopes he will return the diamond ring if he finds out is was mistakenly donated.
