A 15-year-old was getting help with his tie from his father before a wedding when he noticed something sparkling on the ground outside the Columbus Museum of Fine Art. It was a diamond bracelet that ended up being worth $20,000.
"When you see something like that, it's hard to miss," Mohammad Turaani told FOX2.
Running late for the wedding, Mohammad picked it up and his father, Khalid, put it in their car, where it would sit forgotten for five days.
"We were in a big hurry and didn't have time to mess around," Mohammad said.
Khalid said he "totally forgot" about the bracelet until his wife asked him where it was.
Mohammad was able to locate the valuable bracelet in the car, and his older sister started to do some research online. The bracelet was from Tiffany's & Co., and with a carat weight of 3.08, currently listed on the site for $15,500.
"We thought that it was fake because what are the odds of finding something worth $20,000 on the ground?" Mohammad said.
The decision of what to do with the bracelet was an easy one to make.
"That's when we asked Mohammad, 'What do you want to do?' Of course, try to find the owner," Khalid, who is Muslim, said. "In our faith, you have to try to find the owner and keep it for one year."
Luckily, it didn't take long to find the rightful owner.
A call was made to the Columbus Museum of Fine Art, where the wedding occurred.
"We asked them if anybody reported something missing and they said they would call us back," Mohammad said. "Like, 15 minutes later, a woman called — she was like, 'It's my jewelry. Thank you.' She was really happy."
According to the rightful owner, she had paid $20,000 for the piece of jewelry and was more than happy for its return.
The grateful woman, who wished not to be identified by FOX2, was also a guest at the wedding and traveled from Columbus, Ohio, to West Bloomfield, Mich., over a three-hour drive, to retrieve her bracelet.
