yeah; happens often. my fiance and i currently had a scare. He tends to do a lot in the house, so he removes his band. We honestly spend a whole day breaking down the house. We did eventually found it (on top of the fridge). which we didnt know how it happened to end up there.

ive read posts of people losing it inside their dog, nephew’s flushing it down the toilet; i sadly think its common

Was it insured?  Hopefully it turns up!

Atalanta:  Oh, what a shame. My husband lost a titanium ring (not his wedding band – this was just before our wedding and he’s been super careful with his wedding band since!) a couple of months ago. He swears he took it off and put it on his side cabinet right before bed and thought our five month old kitten must have played with it. We searched high and low all around the entire apartment (also a one bedroom place, so not that many hiding nooks!) but couldn’t find it.

I have to admit I was a little skeptical about the kitten involvement and thought he might have just misplaced it, until one night I took my RHR off for ten minutes and put it on the desk to use some handcream. Sure enough when I came back for it, it was nowhere to be found. I started doubting myself but the hubby said he’d seen it too and set about on a very thorough search. In the end, he found it underneath the fridge with a torch!! I couldn’t believe it – that kitty was quick!

I still reckon his is around here somewhere but it must be well and truly covered up under something. It’s harder to find mens plain bands since they don’t have any jewels that shine when you hit them with a torch. Best of luck with your search and I hope it magically turns up somehow. In the meantime, listen carefully when you vacuum!!

I lost a ring once (just a ring, but one I wore often) under my keyboard for 3+ months. I tore up everywhere I could think of to find it, checked under the corners of carpets, picked through the vacuum bag.. and it was under my keyboard. <br /><br />Things pop back up! Don’t lose hope.

My mom dropped her rings (e-ring, wedding band, mother’s ring) and all 3 fell on the kitchen floor. We only found her e-ring and wedding band. Searched all over the kitchen but never found the mother’s ring =[ 

Maybe get a cheap temp. until the real one turns up

I dropped my anniversary band between two sofa cushions, I watched it sink and made a dive for it, but it was gone. I pulled out the sofa, looked behind – nothing |(if you don’t count 16 lost cat toys). I looked inside – nothing. I shone a light in every crevice of that sofa and yet I have not found it. My conclusion is that there is either a black hole or a portal to another dimension inside my sofa.

Since you have kittens – have you looked under the refrigerator? It is usually a graveyard for things cats have played with.

Have you had your cats X-rayed?  There is an outside chance that one of them may have swallowed the ring.  Unlikely but remotely possible.

Atalanta:  My DH has lost TWO rings. We feel like he most likely lost the first one it in bed, as it was a little big, but we’ve torn everything apart and couldn’t find it. Honestly, I don’t get bent out of shape over it. Yes, it’s the ring he was married with but at the end of the day it’s only an outward symbol and getting upset over it doesn’t help the situation. My DH picked a simple burshed Tungsten band – and thankfully they are not very expensive which makes replacement not too bad.

My husband isn’t used to wearing rings, or any jewellery, so he often takes his off. Especially to wash his hands. He’s lost his ring a couple of times and we’ve only been married three weeks! Right now I have his ring in my pocket because I saw he’d left it out again.

I know it’s too late now but for when you find the ring get him to pick a place and that place will be where he always puts the ring when he takes it off. I myself used to always take off my e-ring when I was washing up so after a few mad “where did I leave it?!” dashes around the house I told myself I would always put it in the trinket box on the mantlepiece. That way, as long as I really got in the habit of leaving it there, that’s where it would be.

Another idea would be to get a keyring hook and he could always clip his wedding ring to that when he takes it off. In theory he should never lose it -unless he loses his keys- because he’s always gonna need his keys at some point, right? So even if he forgets where he’s put the ring he will see it there on his keys the next time he takes them up.

I’ll show you what I mean by keyring hook:

Sorry this is happening to you, and I hope the ring wasn’t too expensive.  After my DH lost his first ring while cleaning the yard, we bought him a cheapy off of Amazon.  Even though the ring was Tungston Carbanite, the cheapy broke (he plays with it all day, and occasionally drops it).  Apparently everyone at his work place is on their third of fourth wedding band.  Now he’s considering a tattoo on his ring finger.  

My advise is don’t spend too much money or get to sentimental over your DH’s wedding band.  Also, they sell them for $20 on Amazon.

My bf lost his ring a few months ago, right after I got it. It was a cheap wooden one, so nbd.

He kept telling me it was somewhere at his place, which is pretty small, but never found it.

Well I asked about it again last week, and he said he thinks it fell down a gas station sink. :/

We’re going to get him a gold one this time that actually fits (first one was too big anyway).

A friend’s husband lost his wedding ring the day after their wedding. They were married in St Thomas and we all went snorkeling the next day. Insurance covered it.
