TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - A diamond pendant apparently valued at about $20,000 is headed for the auction block to benefit a Topeka charity.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1Nx2C2p ) that Topeka Habitat for Humanity is auctioning the diamond pendant, which came from an anonymous donor. The 1.59-carat round diamond pendant has an estimated value of $20,000.

The charity says in a release that the donor wanted to give the heirloom to honor her mother-in-law.

Michele De la Isla, executive director of Topeka Habitat for Humanity, says the starting bid is $12,500. The silent auction runs through Wednesday.
