I lost my engagement ring! I was biscuiting on the river and while I came flying off at a particularly big wave, my ring came flying off my finger.
There’s no chance of finding it on my own, so I’m currently emailing every single dive school in my city in desperation.
Has anyone lost their ring before? I’m trying to convince my FI that really, it’s not a big deal and that a ring isn’t as important as our love and all that cliched stuff.

I’m so sorry!!! 🙁
I’m terrified of losing my ring…. and super paranoid because of it. 🙁
I hope you’re able to find it! Is/was it insured?

I am so sorry. I would be devastated. Did you have it insured?

I’m sorry hun. I lost mine too. It disappeared after I was making a cake for my dad’s b-day (took it off to roll the fondant). It really sucks and I know I still miss my ring a lot and I lost it about 6 months ago.

Oh nooo!! I’m worried by your diving idea that the ring wasn’t insured!? That is a great idea though, to have them search for it. Water with strong currents is not a good match for a ring! I’m sure I’m preaching to the choir with that one now, but at least it’s a lesson learned? I am so sorry, I would be so devastated!

I’m really sorry you lost your ring! Don’t worry another bee on here lost her ring at the beach and they managed to find it in the sand – so there’s hope yet that the divers might find it. I wish you all the best!!! Good luck!

I’d never even considered insuring my ring so no, it’s not insured. I guess it’s not the cost of a new ring that upsets me, it’s more that my ring had been specially chosen for me after months of thought by my FI. 🙁
Luckily being a river, the currents aren’t too bad and my friend marked off the exact spot in his GPS, but the water is quite dark, so I need to find someone who is actually good at night diving.

Are there water-friendly metal detectors you could use to look for it, even in the dark?

I am soooo very sorry. I will hope that you find it against all odds.

Oh you poor thing!!! It will all be okay, though. I know it’s devastating right now, but you’re human. Things happen. It really is the love that matters.
That said, I really hope you’re able to find it!

Hi, im new on here!
I just wanted to say that as soon as i read your post the first thing i thought was go buy a waterproof metal detector! (i agree with you, daydreamwanderer !)its about probably $400.. BUT think about how much $ you save when you think about having to buy a new ring, and when you find it, maybe you could return the metal dector! But i’d go find it ASAP cause there are lots of ppl with those metal dectors around looking for gold
