She gives the rock to crowd member at charity bash

Sharon Osbourne threw a £30,000 diamond ring into the audience at a charity party on Saturday.

The X Factor judge, 55, was hosting a fundraiser for Elton John’s Aids Foundation at London’s G-A-Y nightspot.

And it seems Sharon was in a generous mood as she chucked away the sparkler in a crazy gesture.

She had already given away a red Aids awareness ribbon she was wearing, before saying: ‘Here, have a diamond as well.’

Daughter Kelly, 23, looked on in disbelief as she hurled the precious piece of jewellery into the audience.

‘It was a diamond ring that Sharon had bought for herself a while back,’ says a pal.

‘She gives a fortune to charities. Sharon was having a great night and wanted to give something back to the crowd. Let’s hope whoever caught it doesn’t just sell it down the pub for £100.’

Sharon’s spokesman denied it was a publicity stunt.

‘The ring was worth £30,000,’ he tells the Daily Mirror. ‘It was a spontaneous gesture. Sharon was in a great mood, there was a great crowd and it was a poignant event.

‘Christmas has come early for whoever caught it.’
