Talk about ringing in the holidays.

An anonymous donor dropped a diamond and sapphire ring worth $2,000 into a Salvation Army kettle in suburban Miami on Friday, the charity said on its Facebook page.

The ring, tucked inside a $50 bill, was wrapped in a note that read: "They need more than I. Do good! A Friend."

Earlier this month, someone dropped a 3/4-carat diamond in one of the charity's donation kettles outside a store in a suburb of Kansas City. That ring also appraised for $2,000.

Gold bars, gold coins, and wads of cash also have appeared in the kettles over the years, the Salvation Army says.
