I lost mine at one point too. I was unhappy with the one I had, we got a new one and then I lost the original. I was devastated. I wouldn’t even wear the new one anymore. I finally realized that I did love the old one–it was sentimental and it was the one I wanted (a bad time to come to this realization, I know) Anyway just when I had given up on finding it my then fiance (now husband) was rifling through my computer bag to find a flash drive or something and found it tucked deep into one of the pockets. It had been there all along! Aside from having to have the stones reset because the band was reaaallly roughed up, I have my ring back! Moral of the story: things turn up in unexpected places.

My ring is currently lost but not really as I know exactly where it is…I just can’t get to it!  After a party, lots of drinks, took it off to put it away and dropped it in the bathroom.  The silly ring bounces on the carpet, does a triple lutz (apparently) and ends up behind the baseboards of the bathroom cabinets.  It took me three days to realize that there’s a tiny hole there behind the baseboard between where the cabinet meets up with the wall.  I used a dental mirror and a candle and now I can SEE that it’s there but I can’t reach it.  We’ve tried everything but it would really mean pulling the cabinets out to get to it.   Geez…

@bewitched728:  What about a really strong magnet?

@daybyday:  I tried a regular magnet but I dont think gold (its white gold) is magnetic…I’ll have to google it.  I also tried chewy caramel on the end of stick…that attracted lots of construction dust but no ring LOL!  I did manage to push it further away so I thought I’d just better stop!

I would the cabinet taken out. Don’t get why this is not an option.

Why not try a coat hanger with a small “hook” fashioned in the end or something similar. And YAY for the OP finding her ring!
