  • poll: If you found wedding rings would you....

    keep them, finders keepers

    Post ads saying I found them but keep them after a certain amount of time

    Exhaust every effort to find the person who lost the rings (ie checking ads ect)

    I would absolutely return them. If, god forbid, I ever lost my e-ring or wedding band (after we get married), I would just pray and hope that some kind person would return them. I would work really hard to get the pieces back to their rightful owner. Wedding jewelery (whether its your ering, wedding band, a bracelet you wore on your wedding day, etc) has such sentimental value – hopefully people would do the right thing.

    4 years ago I was at a dealership buying a new car, and I took a bathroom break. I washed my hands and threw my favorite ring (not an e ring but a gift from my SO) in the trash with a paper towel. Didn’t notice til I was on my way home from the dealership, but even still wasn’t 100% sure that I had even worn it that day. So, I get home, tear up my house, my SO’s house and then in a panic realize what happened. By that time the dealer was closed…so I called the next day to see if someone could dig thru the trash in the bathroom and see if they found it, and they did! Thank goodness.. I was devastated.

    Last year, the weirdest thing happened. The same exact ring went missing for MONTHS. I was so upset because after the incident at the dealership, I was really careful with my ring. So, when it went missing, I was SO upset because I couldn’t even remember where I had put it down. So, right before we went to Paris in October last year (by that time, I think the the ring had been missing since like Feb), my SO goes to the bank to cash in his change jar, and out comes the ring, right into the coinstar tray! LOL he called me up while he was still at the bank! We both have no clue how the ring ended up there! Best day ever!

    I found a really nice ring at work not too long ago, the next day a very frantic woman called in search of it! She gave me a very nice reward which I used to buy some goodies for my crew!

    I was staying at a Buddhist temple in Japan and took my engagement ring off in the onsen (hot baths) there and left it on the shelf where you leave your clothes and belongings. We were the only people staying at the temple that night so I was there completely alone. When I got out of the bath and changed, I forgot to pick up my ring. In fact, I did not remember that I had left it there until around 3:00 am when I woke up in a start. Somehow in my dreaming state my subconcious had to remind me that I had left something important behind. I jumped up and ran down to the baths to see if it was still there. It was gone. I was totally freaking out, thinking that the monks there must be good people and surely they would have it in the morning. I went back up to our little room and in the main “living room” area I saw my ring sitting on the coffee table. I was so relieved! But one of the monks must have found it and left it on the table for us while we were sleeping (you don’t lock your doors, there, they are all sliding paper doors). I still don’t know who returned it, but I was SO thankful they did!

    I knew a guy who locked his wallet and wedding ring in a locker at the gym. While he was working out, someone broke in and took everything, including his ring. I was shocked for a lot of reasons.
