OVERLAND PARK, Kan. -

A Kansas woman got the Kansas City Chiefs tickets she wanted, and all she had to do was give up her diamond wedding ring.

Last week the anonymous Overland Park woman put up an ad on Craigslist that read, ""I have a diamond ring/wedding band set (appraised at $3,100) that I want to trade for KC Chiefs tickets. Looking for tickets to the 12/1 Broncos game. Email me with offers."

She told the Denver Post she wanted the tickets to surprise her husband for his 40th birthday. (The ring is from a previous marriage.)

One man made her an offer. They met today at a jewelry store, she said, where it was verified that the diamonds were real. The man gave her four tickets to the Chiefs-Broncos game, along with two tickets to the Nov. 24 Chiefs-Chargers game in Kansas City.
