You never know

We recently decided to redo our front lawn and that meant ripping the whole thing and doing something new. I wanted a different grass as well. It was monumental task so we did some calling around at different lawn care companies.

Several bids later we settled on one and they got right to work on it. They tore out the all the old dirt and grass at about 5 inches down. Ran new irrigation system  and laid down new dirt that was infused with the kind of grass seed I wanted.

They also offered lawn treatment services as well so they came every month to make sure the yard was getting what it needed as far as nutrients go.

Anyway you are probably wondering why I am talking about this when I mostly talk about jewelry.

Well when they were working on this yard they found something really amazing.

Next to the tree they noticed something shimmering a little. They called me over since I was watching them work and I went to dig it out a little.

Turns out it was a diamond necklace with a very elegant gold chain. It was quite dirty and tarnished.

I took it inside and clean it up a little and the diamond I estimated to be about 3 carats!

I have no idea how it got there. Whoever lived here before either buried it or lost it long ago and there it remained for at least 23 years.

You just never know what will turn up in your front yard!
