An extremely big -- and accidental -- donation to a Salvation Army kettle is returned to its owner.

FOX News Radio's Lisa Brady reports:

Even the very generous usually don't drop expensive jewelry into those big red kettles...

(Volunteer) "Hello... Thank you ma'am... You have a nice Christmas."

But bell ringers in Pennsylvania found a gold and diamond ring worth $10,000 accidentally dropped in with the change a Pittsburgh-area woman was donating. A local TV station helped reunite ring and owner. Salvation Army volunteer Chris Blessing says accidental donations usually range from buttons and game tokens, to pocket lint.
