TAMPA, Fla. - A $5,000 diamond meant to make its way on to a necklace or set on a ring made its way into an 80-year-old woman's belly instead.
The Tampa Woman's Club held an event over the weekend where they poured 400 flutes of champagne. Inside each flute was a cubic zirconia, and one of the flutes contained a $5,000 diamond donated by Continental Wholesale Diamond.
"We were laughing and I wasn't paying attention and I took a swallow," said Miriam, who declined to give her last name.
After patrons finished their drinks, the real diamond was nowhere to be found.

This too shall pass.
Poop with a sieve...
Eighty years old? Boy, have they got a long wait.
A diamond in the roughage.
Eww - she’ll have to save each dump and inspect it closely for the next month ...
I just hope everything comes out okay.
Her first words...Oh crap....
If she doesn’t pass it before she passes away there will be a lot of people screaming for an autopsy.
If ever there was a story fit forr posting on www.poopreport.com...this is it.
And yes, it is exactly what it sounds like.
Her intestimal tract will have many facets.

That there was good.
'Course them carats make for good scrapin's too.
Last seen blazing down the road in her Govn’t (Ie: tax payer funded) mobile wheeled chair. The Boston like Police lost track of her.

Soooo, the doctor found the diamond during a colonoscopy, and the woman took it to the jewelry store WITHOUT CLEANING IT.
Nice, lady. Very nice. I’d have thrown it at her.
Now that’s some expensive crap. Ahem.
what the hell is wrong with people? why wouldn’t she clean it before handing it to someone??
uhhh, no, you can keep that, too....
I can’t imagine. She thought it was acceptable to take a diamond in a bag covered with her...
Oh, never mind.
Not to worry. She worked it out.
I once was fiddling with a gold ring my grandfather gave me as a young lad while lying down in bed....I dropped it and it fell right down my throat....
Yup... I had to wait a day and “find” it ....the ring was shiny like brand new...
Never played with it again especially with my mouth open....
whose brilliant idea was that?
