US celebrity Paris Hilton is getting back a diamond-topped gold ring lost in Poland thanks to an honest fireman, airport officials in the central city of Lodz said Thursday.

The 34-year-old heiress to the Hilton hotel empire, known for her wildly extravagant lifestyle, was in the city last week for a fashion show when she lost a large ring between the seats of a VIP airport shuttle.

Finder Mieczyslaw Cieslaczyk “took it to the airport lost-and-found without knowing it belonged to the celebrity,” Lodz airport spokeswoman Ewa Bienkowska told AFP.

Unconfirmed local media reports allege it was no ordinary bling, but an engagement ring worth $100,000 (90,000 euros).

Under Polish law Cieslaczyk, is entitled to a finder’s fee of ten percent of the ring’s value.

He told Polish media he could use the funds to do a bit of his own jet-setting on a tropical vacation with his wife.
