PHOENIX (CBS5) -

An Arizona woman was frantic when she lost a piece of jewelry very dear to her heart, and now she is paying it forward to the person who got the diamond bracelet back in her hands.

Just before Christmas, after a full day of shopping, Carol King suddenly realized that the diamond bracelet she never takes off was no longer on her wrist.

"Total panic situation. I felt like someone had cut my right arm off," King said.

"This is a special tennis bracelet. It was given to me by my parents. My dad is now deceased so it has a lot of sentimental value," King said.

King had been to eight different stores that day and had no idea where she might have lost it.

She frantically worked the phones, never really expecting the person on the other end to help or really understand what she had lost.

"I just figured I'd never see it again, that there was zero chance that I'd ever discover the bracelet," King said.

"I stumbled on something and I looked down and I thought, 'Oh it's a rock,'" Joann's Fabric employee Shaun Kelly said.

Of all the places Kelly could have stepped, her foot just happened to fall on King's bracelet.

"It kind of restores your faith in people's honesty and integrity for one thing. And not only was she honest, but she went the extra mile in addition to the honesty, which is just ... I was floored," King said.

When King teamed up with CBS 5 News to Pay It Forward to Kelly, she didn't know that Joann's Fabric is closing and Kelly is looking her job.

The $500 couldn't have come at a better time, even if Kelly thinks she doesn't deserve it.

"I see your show, and I think, these other people, they do something, and all I did was return something that should have been returned," Kelly said.

King has now even offered to help Kelly find a new job.
