read about a woman from ohio that paid $5 at a yard sale 4 years ago for a "diamond" pendant of lebron james' #23 jersey. at first she thought it was costume jewelry until she took it to a local jeweler. the jeweler tested the diamonds, said the diamonds were the real deal, and insisted she send the piece to be appraised. she paid the international gemological institute to appraise the pendant; and the piece was appraised at $10,000. 8) (but what an ugly piece, lol) here's a pic of the pendant

read about it on yeehaw news today

and...she may have posted the lovely pendant on ebay, but, from what i have read, most people that have searched for the pendant cannot find it on ebay.

Looks like someone else had a similar idea... although this one is a little less "pop culture". ;)

Apparently the god Ganesha is associated with the mystical syllable aum, and this jewelry combines the two.
