Ourloverenewals:  Not sure why a picture of a toilet is needed here.

But yes, this is what insurance is for. Also, this is what ring holders are for.

I think OP was just trying to use an illustration in her story. You know, funny, funny, ha, ha. Damn. 

I was super paranoid when I first got engaged. But then you have insurance to cover any damage or loss, so it became a non-issue after a while.

Usually no I’m not paranoid. I lost a ring a few years ago, except it fell off my finger and I didn’t even realize it, but it was insured. Right now I’m a little paranoid because I just got new rings and havnt insured them yet. This thread reminded me that I need to go do that asap!

I’m a little paranoid, but so is my fi.  I wasn’t allowed to leave the house until my ring was insured.  I had a nightmare the other night about my ring being stolen while I slept.  It was, of course, safely on the bedside table next to me the whole time!

Yes, Im really paranoid about doing something like this. Not as much as I was when I first got my ering though. I pretty much never take it off except for when I’m at home & I make sure to put it on its ring holder. There have been a few times I’ve taken it off at work when we do deep cleaning, or one time I left it in our hotel room when we we’re on vacation because we we’re going to a waterpark. I’m always super paranoid doing this & hate it. I recently came across something called a Lion Latch that it made to put your rings in when you need to take them off like at the gym or something & I think I’m going to buy one! I do have insurance though I would terrified without it!

My sister did pretty much the same thing. She lost one set while running her hands through water at a lake, it was insured,  so got it replaced and then her cats knocked them into the toilet,  my bil flushed… the insurance wouldn’t replace the 2nd set

Nope, my bands are insured as well as my e-ring so I don’t really feel paranoid about it

Ourloverenewals:  have lost one off my finger long ago. My old eternity band was stolen from our bedroom by a friend of my husband. My rings aren’t very expensive but the only thing I am oddly paranoid about hence I now sleep in my rings is if there was a house fire and my rings were not on my finger. Which is crazy as I don’t hold alot of sentimental value to them as I change / swap them every month lol. 

I did get the loo pic and it made me feel your pain. I actually have a top ear/ cartilage piercing with an aquamarine in. I was in work and had to put a wig of for a fun day. It wasn’t long after I’d had it done so it was still really sore. The wig caught into it. So I went to the bathroom to take it out. Put it on the sink side,  got my piercing lotion to clean it and as I but the bottle fownbi knock the stid into the sink. Thankfully my deputy manager as a handy man and undid the pipes and found it.

Mine are insured, so whatever happens, happens. I’m not very sentimental.

Bobbys-Girl:  You would think they would have denied insuring her the second time around, instead of taking her money and then refusing to pay on the claim.

OP- I was neurotic about my rings the first week until I got them insured, now I don’t even think about it.

Mine is insured, but I was super paranoid about everything when I first got it. Now I ONLY put it back in the box it came in if I take it off. No more putting rings on counters, etc. 🙂 Sorry bee that happened to you…I would be crying!!!

Ourloverenewals:  Oh no! I couldn’t imagine flushing my ring down the toilet, I would be heartbroken. I do use ring dishes when I take my ring off to avoid any mishaps. I have this irrational fear that it’s going to slip off my finger, even though it never has. My fingers shrink when it’s cold, but my ring never goes past my big knuckle, thankfully. It is insured so we’d be able to replace it if anything were to happen, but I’ve attached so much sentimental value to this one!
