In a recent Twitter post, the New York City Department of Sanitation celebrated a reunion its employees were able to help facilitate.

After he received access to what he said were hundreds of full trash bags, Mike Diamond told WCBS it took only about 15 minutes to recover the three-carat gem his fiancee threw out.

“I happened to see like something glowing, and I said, you know, ‘I think that’s it!'” he said.
