(Scroll down for video) A woman accidentally gave away her engagement ring to a homeless man after removing it from her finger because it was bothering her, according to video uploaded to the internet.

The homeless man who won the prize when the diamond diamond ring ended up in his change cup, had a heart of gold by returning it.

The woman who accidentally left her engagement ring along with all her spare change in her pocket in the cup later noticed the mistake that she had given the expensive ring to the Kansas City, Kansas man, Billy Ray Harris.

Sarah Darling, who had no intention of being so generous to the man in the street, told a local television news station that she kept the ring in her pocket because it was bothering her finger.
Darling said she had not realized what she had done until the next day.

“I was so incredibly disappointed because more than the value of the ring, it had sentimental value,” she said.
Needless to say, Darling ran back to that street the next day.
Harris told the television news station: “The ring was big. I knew if it was real, it was expensive.”

“She came back the next day bent over to me and asked me if I had the ring. I said yes and gave it back to her,” Harris told the television news station.

Harris added that he was not the type to take advantage of someone’s misfortune. “My grandfather was a minister. He raised me since I was 6-months-old and thanks to the good Lord. I still I have a bit of character in me,” he said.
