I have been engaged for a few months now and I have never lost a piece of jewellery, I still wear a little ring that I got when I was 7 years old, but I lost my engagement ring in my fiance’s house over the weekend. We have turned the house upside down and inside out and it is nowhere to be found and I am absolutely gutted (and I mean, we have checked everywhere – bins, boxes, floors, etc.). I loved the ring, we chose it together, and my OH saved for it for ages. Has anyone else ever lost their ring? And never found it? I know it’s “only” a ring and my OH has said that we can get another one, but it will never be the same :(. To make matters worse, we had a bottle of champagne during the weekend, given us by a friend to celebrate our engagement (ironically), I didn’t have much but it was strong and went straight to my head (I don’t have a great holding capacity for alcohol and don’t drink that often) so my memories of the evening it went lost are scanty to say the least which makes me feel even worse. I can’t even remember the last place I saw it. I’m just so upset and annoyed with myself. I don’t want another ring, I want my ring back 🙁 (and I won’t be drinking anymore!)

If you’re sure it’s in the house it couldn’t have gone far! Keep looking and don’t beat yourself up about it. I left my wallet on the top of my car a few months ago leaving the grocery store, sometimes it just happens! Are there vents it could have possibly fallen into?

Are you certain you lost it in the house?? If so, it HAS to be there somewhere. Do you have pets? Our cat sometimes hides little things in certain spots so I have to be extra careful. I am not the best at not losing jewelry which is why I never ever take me e ring off. I really hope you find it…I am sure it is around somewhere!!

I really hope you find it.
I once lost a ring at FMIL’s house. I lost in in June/July. It had been a gift from my mom and everytime I saw her I had to make excuses as to why I wasn’t wearing it.
Then, in December my Future Mother-In-Law was re-arranging the downstairs bedroom and there was my ring! It had fallen between the bed and the wall. I really thought it was gone forever.
Do you have insurance on your ring? You may be able to get an exact replacement since your ring is lost.

Has the trash gone out from the weekend? I would save that as a last resort but you could have thrown something away and had it slip off! Good luck! You will find it!

Hi, thanks for all your replies. I know I didn’t go outside, so it has to be in the house somewhere, but unless it has fallen down somewhere inaccessible and out of sight, I really don’t know where. I’m hoping it turns up eventually. Maybe that old adage is true – stop searching for something and it will turn up! I hope so, will be really gutted if it doesn’t. He has no pets, so it couldn’t have disappeared that way. The bed was stripped and quilt covers, pillowcases, etc. all searched (which was one of my first ideas of where it might be) but no joy! No insurance directly on ring, but could try house insurance if it doesn’t reappear. Checked the garbage also as it went through my head that it could have slipped off. Just hope it turns up at some stage! Thanks again for all your suggestions.

Did you wear any gloves? My mom, a jeweler, was just talking about how many girls lose their rings while wearing gloves.
Either way, I’ll say the Italian prayer for lost things for you!

I know its gross, but check the traps in the pipes under the sinks, there easy to take off and their purpose is to catch things before they are gone forever! GOOD LUCK!!

@GemJen: Did you do any cooking? Could you have set it down? Could it have fallen under something in the kitchen or bath room or in one of the fridge doors or something? Check in the vacuum cleaner?

Did you check in the bottom of the closets? When I was little my mom lost a ring — I found it a year later in my closet!

Check your purse and the pockets of clothes in the laundry basket.
Buy a metal detector?
