A European-cut diamond that someone dropped into a Salvation Army red kettle outside a Shawnee store sold for $6,325 Tuesday on eBay.
The diamond, set in a ring donated by Meierotto’s Jewelers in Kansas City, North, was bought by an unknown buyer from out of state.
Potential buyers placed 86 bids on the diamond ring during the weeklong auction, which ended at 10:15 a.m.
The diamond has an unusual cut that is no longer used. It is thought to be have been cut more than 100 years ago.
The Salvation Army in Kansas City, Kan., said it would use proceeds from the auction to help people in need in Wyandotte County.
