I’m so sorry! I haven’t had anything similar but I feel for you, I hate that this is corrupting such a happy time in your life! Hang in there!

Are you sure it was in the box to begin with?  Did he leave his car for any period of time?

Sorry for what’s happening but the missing ring just sounds a little fishy to me.

It might be that the ring was promised to your aunt and your grandmother had forgotten about it and once your aunt found out she went to your grandmother.  I would be upset if something that was promised to me was given to someone else.

Oh, that’s horrible! When I was 13 I was givin my great-grandmother’s ring. It wasn’t very special because Grandma (my great grand) was only in her 60s at the time and has been married loads of times but it was my first real ring. Because of that and because I’m a bit of a tomboy and wasn’t use to having things on my hands, I would always take them off at school for lunch and let a friend hang on to it. One day that friend put it on my trey and I didn’t see it when I went to throw the food away. Bye-bye Grandma’s ring. My aunt lost her engagement ring when she had her first baby. There were problems with the birth and the nurse told her to take all of her rings off. My Nanna (her mom) wrapped them in a tissue to save for later but no one thought of it right after the baby was born and the nurse cleaned up and threw the rings (her e-ring and class ring) away. Not much help, but I hope it made you feel a bit better! 🙂

I would give back the ring…let it go to your aunt…and start a new tradition with new rings. It will be such a weight off your shoulders!


Or can you have the ring turned into TWO rings, so each of you (you and aunt) has a bit of the past?
