Two scavengers literally struck gold when they found jewelry worth $133,919 while sifting through a garbage pile.

Zhou Jingxia and her husband Liu Yuhua, both trash recyclers from Henan Province of China, came across two boxes containing solid-gold rings and necklaces while scavenging at a waste station in Changchun City, Jilin province, earlier this month.

The recovered jewelry has been returned to its rightful owner, police said.

A jewelry dealer, surnamed Chen, had reported the missing gold to police.

He explained it had been overlooked while making a shipment from Changchun to Shenzhen, Guangdong province, 'Global Times' reported.

The couple carried the three-kilogram load around until police tracked down the property.
