@eocenia:  Omg, so upsetting! If it were me I probably wouldn’t be able to hold it together in the restaurant!

@eocenia:  Yikes! Only place outside home I take my rings off is at the gym when doing push-ups…. But I stay away from 40 cm crawl spaces. Poor lady!

@eocenia:  EEKK!!! Poor thing.  Yep good advice, better to stick your hand in front of someones face and show them that way then to take it off!

OMGosh…

How awful.

Her husband is lucky this story didn’t turn out much worse, him trying to stick his hand into “the gap” of the revolving floor !!

Hopefully the mainteance person will find it and be able to return it to them…

OR they have Insurance.

I have to agree 100% with @Mrs. Mouse:  Insurance is very very important !!

I personally NEVER take my rings off when I am out and about… they are either on my finger or locked up in a safe place.  Period

I feel so bad for her! I really hope they find the ring.

Her husband was saying it was cursed?!? Why? That seems like an overreaction.

GASP!!!

Oh. My. Word.  I would be SO upset at this.  I feel so badly for the couple who lost the ring, and I also cannot even imagine how terrible the woman who asked to see the ring must feel!

I really do not understand why the husband would say what he did about the ring being cursed and that the restaurant staff person could keep it if it is found.  That makes no sense whatsoever, and, if he’s planning on cashing in on the insurance money to purchase a new one, he cannot be giving away the other one if it indeed is found.

Oh that’s just awful, awful bad luck! I don’t know what the husband is thinking just letting it go if it’s found though…

I NEVER take mine off outside the house. EVER and if I do here, they go onto my ring stand or into the box. Period.

I don’t get the “cursed” thing. No matter how or where, if I ever lost mine, I WOULD WANT IT BACK! So sentimental. Maybe he was just angry. Or maybe he is an asshat and was mad at her for dropping it!

I rarely take mine off. A good friend of my family took her rings off in the mall to apply hand lotion at a cosmetic counter, and walked on to shop… without her rings! she went back but the rings were long gone. She had a pricey set and had not insured it. If nothing else, my rings are insured. If I was the lady who dropped hers in that restaraunt, I’d be hysterical. Even though my rings are insured, they’re MINE
