One man's trash really was another woman's treasure in Jerusalem on Thursday.
Dozens of sanitation workers and residents were sorting through masses of rubbish in the capital for a diamond ring that was accidentally tossed in the garbage.
A local woman notified the driver of a municipal garbage truck after realizing that her NIS 30,000 ring had mistakenly gone out with the trash from her house. The woman convinced the driver to stop the vehicle and unload the haul.
The ring's owner offered a $1,000 reward to anyone who found the "blinged" band.
