Lost Tiffany engagement ring returned by Good Samaritan

CAMBRIDGE, MA (CNN/KLTV) - Six months ago a Massachusetts woman lost her diamond engagement ring from Tiffany's. Now, she finally has it back.

Escalator mechanic John says he found the ring a few weeks ago underneath this escalator at Trader Joe's in the back bay.

John found out the ring came from Tiffany's, and Tiffany's traced the serial numbers on the diamond to Lois' husband, Patrick. So the three met at Tiffany's.

Lois was clueless at first and then overcome with joy when John gave her the surprise of her life.

"I think it gives us so much hope about the good people that are out there still helping each other out.  And I just feel very honored to be a beneficiary of that," remarked Lois."

John says it took him a good two weeks of detective work to find the owners. And even though his friends told him to keep the ring, he says he wanted to set an example for everyone -- especially his kids.
