@squirel11:  I just wanted to say, I’m so sorry.  That is horrible.  I can understand why you’d be upset and why it would be hard to let go.  Maybe it will turn up randomly one day.  Not very helpful, I know.

I am so sorry for you. I think for your peace of mind and your health you need to move on and start looking towards your future and now you have had your vent I hope that you can find closure.

I lost my first engagement ring as well and it takes time but it will get better.

Good luck girl πŸ™‚

I’m so sorry you’re dealing with this.

Are you going to replace it with something similar or completely different? Was it insured so you’re at least not out of pocket?

Hopefully one day it will still turn up.

When we let go of material attachments, strange things happen. Who knows may be it might even find its way back to you. I’ve heard so many women’s stories who finally let go of their beloved rings or other items, and then miraculously those items would turn up in the most unexpected places. A friends found her ring a year later in the garden when she was pulling some weeds while she lost it in the house.. She has no idea how it got there.

The best thing you can do is to make peace with yourself and with the ring. You’ve made a huge effort to look for it and you are expanding even more energy still being attached to the beloved item. I think you will feel much better and your husband will rest easier if you could find some peace with it. Remember how short life is and cherish the moments that you did have with the beautiful ring. Think of the moments you could be cherishing with your loved ones right now πŸ™‚

I would be really torn up too. It understandable.

I once heard diamonds always find our ways to us.

You can always ask your grandmother to help you find it. Be open to that possibility. πŸ™‚

A friend bought her own Tiffany engagement ring. It was a treasure. It was lost. Years later…maybe 10? She was in a pawn shop and saw a ring. Asked if it was Tiffany, size ___, with such and such inside the band. It was. It was her ring. She found it again.

 

I wish you the same.

@MissNoodles:  I second this idea. I just think of Sex and the City when Carrie finds her Carrie necklace under the lining in her purse. 

I’m so sorry for this loss! I don’t even officially have my ring yet (bought ring but Boyfriend or Best Friend hasn’t proposed) and I already feel so attached to it so I can’t imagine how you must feel. Good luck!

I know you probably already did, but have you ripped the lining out of the purse you put it in before you lost it? The purse could have a small rip in it and the ring might have dropped into it. I hope it turns up for you, it’s a truly gorgeous ring and complimented your hand beautifully, It’s truly amazing how attached we can be to our rings.

*edit* I just noticed this was wrote a while ago, and like one of the other ladies I immediatly thought of Carrie losing her necklace in Paris :O

*second edit* A bit of hope for you, a couple years ago in my town a lady lost her engagement ring over the side of a dock at the beach, an hour later her husband caught a fish, and when they gutted it her ring was inside!
