Yesterday I was at the Sears Outlet looking at washers and dryers with my mom and while I was on the phone with my hubby discussing a particular dryer I glance at my left hand and relaize that the diamond is not in my e-ring! I screamed "My diamonds missing" and hung up on my hubby. My mom was a few aisles away and wasn’t paying attention so I started yelling "mom, mom" and she ran over. Then, I had my first ever real panic attack — I started shaking, I couldn’t breath, my mom said I turned pale. No one there really wanted to look for it because they all assumed "it could be anywhere, under anything, and it is insured." Seriously! I started going up and down the aisles, but I still couldn’t breath. All everyone there wanted to do was calm me down, so I was getting more upset because no one was looking (except this very cute 5 yr old boy and his mom). Finally, I got on my hands and knees and started crawling up and down every aisle while running my fingers under the edges of the applicances (my knees still hurt). At the end of the second aisle — I found it! There is was, just sitting there in the middle of the aisle. Then I started crying — I never cried before I found it, but as soon as it was in my hand I started crying.
My mom now thinks I am the luckiest person in the world AND that I seriously overreact when I care about something. When she was telling me "don’t worry, it’s insured" I told her "it is my diamond, I want that one, that is the one we picked out."
I’m going to my jeweler today to get it fixed. So, now I just have my wedding band on.
Has anything wedding/engagement/marriage related caused you to have a panic attack?

I haven’t had a panic attack yet (I suspect at least one will happen as the wedding inches closer) but I can’t imagine losing my diamond — that one would deserve a good flip out! Having th diamond fall out is one of my greatest fears and I will frequently look down at my ring to make sure it hasn’t fallen out (looked a few more times right now!). Thank goodness you were able to find yours!

I haven’t- But I admire you for looking for your diamond and finding it! I would have felt helpless and crumbled up in a ball and dreaded breaking the news to my man! Out of curiosity- do you have a four prong or six prong setting? For some reason- my fiance felt so strongly about having a six prong setting and wouldn’t look at anything else!

Wow, you sure are lucky! I lost a diamond earring in my house and never found it, so I’m glad that you were able to find your diamond in the middle of a big store!

OH MY GOD. That is one of my worst nightmares EVER. I look at my ring 600 times a day to make sure the diamond’s still there.
Thank goodness you found it, Cali!

Yes, I lost a tiny diamond from the pave setting on my ring and was hysterical. I can’t even imagine losing the main diamond! I am SO SO happy for you that you found it! My ring is currently sitting in it’s ring box because I am too scared to wear it and have any diamonds fall out. (The one that fell out, we found and got fixed, is loose again) You know how some people have nightmares about their teeth falling out? I have nightmares about the diamonds on my ring falling out.

Oh my God!! I am so glad you found it! When I started reading, I thought for sure that it was lost for good. What a relief!

Right after I got my ring, which is an estate piece, I was visiting my grandmother, and when I held my hand out to show her the ring I realized one of the stones was missing. We had to have it replaced and it took four weeks to get the ring fixed 🙁 I must check a hundred times a day to make sure all the stones are still there!

Why is it that people don’t want you to freak out?? They’re always trying to calm you down (when in reality you shouldn’t be calm at all!!) I am SO GLAD you found it!! I’m with you, I would have cried when I found it too!

Sparkles — I have a 4 prong setting. My jeweler was closed today, so I’m going tomorrow to find out about getting a new setting.
I still can’t get over the fact the no one wanted to look for it — not even my mom. It is good to hear that no one here thinks I overreacted!
