A Queens man has discovered enough hidden treasure â€” bits of diamonds, rubies, platinum and gold â€” on the gritty sidewalks of Midtownâ€™s Diamond District to make a living.
â€œThe streets of 47th Street are literally paved with gold,â€ a giddy Raffi Stepanian, 43, of Whitestone told The Post last week when a reporter discovered him on all fours â€” armed with tweezers and a butter knife â€” digging through cracks in the sidewalk in a driving rainstorm.
The freelance diamond setter explained that he was sifting through â€œvery valuableâ€ New York City mud for tiny diamond and ruby chips, bits of platinum, white-gold industrial loops for jewelry assembly, and gold earring backs and loops from broken chains, watches, brooches and necklaces â€” all carelessly dropped and now his to mine.
