A woman couldn't believe her luck when she nibbled on her boiled egg and a diamond fell out.
Sally Thomson, who is set to get married to her fiance Steven Warwick in May this year, got the surprise of her life when she demolished six eggs that she'd cooked up for breakfast and discovered the sparkling jewel in her mouth, which farmers think came from the chicken.
Sally, of Carlisle, told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "I'm trying to lose a bit of weight just before the wedding and I cooked a batch of eggs all at once to eat over a few days. I took one, peeled it and bit into it when I feel something like gristle in my mouth. It fell on to the plate and I couldn't understand where it had come from - I thought it had come from me.
"There was this little bit of jewellery on the plate and I couldn't understand where it had come from. The only place could have been from the egg. I believe in superstitions - like find a feather, pick it up - and I think there must be something about the timing of this coming."
