Sissy’s Log Cabin Appraises Diamond Dropped In Salvation Army Kettle December 23, 2020 (0 comments)


Germantown, TN—The Salvation Army’s ubiquitous red kettles and bell-ringing volunteers that appear every holiday season are an important source of funding and publicity for the organization. On December 10 of this year, when volunteers opened up a kettle in Germantown, TN, they found something surprising among the usual cash inside: a diamond ring. The donation was intentional, not accidental: the ring was wrapped in a plastic bag with a note reading “Help The Poor” attached.

The Memphis Commercial Appeal wrote about the donation and shared the local Salvation Army’s Facebook post. WREG-TV3, the CBS affiliate in Memphis, also covered the story, and both the paper and the TV station gave a nice mention to Sissy’s Log Cabin, the Pine Bluff, AR-based jeweler that opened a branch in Memphis a few years ago. Sissy’s Log Cabin appraised the ring at $6,317, noting the piece is 14k yellow gold with 11 old-mine cut diamonds, ranging from J-H-I, and average clarity of SI2 – I1.
