Nearly 30 years after Debra Goddard Stumbled upon a usually shiny piece of glass ring and bought it from a boot sale for a mere £10 (approximately Rs 925).
After all those years, it was only recently that Goddard learned that the ring was an actual diamond worth a whopping Rs 68 crore.
According to reports, it was a jeweler who examined it and told her that it was a real 26.27-carat diamond.
The ring was kept in a jewelry box for well over 15 years and it was recently taken out to be sold after Goddard’s mother lost all her money to a fraudster.
"When I went to the jeweller he nearly fainted and said, 'Do you know what this is? It's a diamond.' I sat up all night looking at it, wondering what to do," Goddard told The Sun.

"It's karma for the bad things that happened in our lives and my mum being robbed of everything," said Goddard.
