I’m sorry, that really sucks. I’ve misplaced my rings a couple of times – once even took one off in my sleep and found it the next morning in the sheets – and I know the panic that slides over me when I’m hunting for them.

You mentioned your dog. If there’s any chance she likes eating shiny metal off the floor, you might want to watch her for the next few days. Same for your daughter if she’s really young!

Good luck! I have no experience with insurance, so no idea there.

Also, did you check the trap of your sink? Is there any way they could have fallen down a drain?

Oh my gosh, this is my nightmare. I lost a necklace that SO gave me and I have felt terrible about it since. I am so sorry you are going through this. I don’t have any advice for you as far as the insurance goes, but I really hope you have overlooked them and they turn up!

Check around where you normally take off your ring. I usually take my ering off when I’m packing up stuff in the warehouse at work on cold days, because it gets so freezing cold I’m afraid my ring will slide off. Once I did NOT remember taking it off & I had just packed up 7 boxes & the UPS driver came & picked them up. After that, my ring was not on my finger & I was afraid I’d mailed my ring off to to Florida or Nevada & would never get it back :(. Turned out, I was SO used to taking it off, that it was right where I leave it when I take it off for work but a paper got put on top of it. So check around the areas that you would normally take your ring off.

Hope you find it!!

I lost my engagement ring in a similar fashion. I was so torn up about it. My fiance felt the same as your husband. I have not to this day, found my ring… but he did buy me a new one. I still miss the old one very much. Needless to say he waited an awfully long time (6 months) before giving me the new ring… he said he didn’t want me to lose again it so he waited closer to the wedding “OUCH” burn lol

I lost my college ring right off my finger and didn’t even notice until a day later. I tore everything apart, but no luck.

I suspect it slipped off my finger into the trashcan after a shower and my finger was cold.

If you can, I would go through the garbage to make sure it’s not there…

Im not religious but I always say a prayer to St Anthony!! I cant even tell you how many things Ive lost then found after saying a prayer! Also, just be calm. Sometimes getting all worked up makes it harder for us to find things. Did you check your purse? Did you check inside your car? Maybe under the mats near your feet or under your seat? Sometimes things we lose are in the most obvious places and afterwards we cant believe we thought they were lost! Good luck to you!!

I agree with @Jazziberry, check your garbages, it could have slipped off onto a plate or bowl with leftover food in it? I am praying for you hun…..

I am so so so sorry! It looks like you’ve covered your bases on places to look. I just hope it turns up someplace unexpected soon.

I lost my ering about a month ago in what I thought was our front yard. I was SICK over it, a complete mess- balling like a baby, certain it was lost forever. I had my whole family searching the yard, our cars, etc. Turns out it (freakishly) fell into a tiny crack in the console of my mom’s car & my brother found it after ripping apart her car for the 5th time (I was riding with her that day). I am extremely lucky to have it back & I’m extra careful with it now after going through that. I would go through every possible crevice in your car again!

Good luck, please let us know if you find it…

keep looking – most of the time its right in front of our face and we feel so stupid after we find it.

i was cleaning the kitchen the other day and had taken my rings off and laid them on the counter. spraying cleaner and wiping away i wiped them right into the kitchen sink. luckily i have reflexes like a ninja and stopped them from going straight down the drain. i had a brief moment of panic, and you should have seen the look on my husbands face like “i saw that coming” – note to self, dont leave rings on the kitchen counter.

good luck in your search! you are lucky in the fact that you have it insured, it took almost 7 months of procrastinating before we insured mine. i would hate to lose it!

ps. the st. anthony prayer always works for me too! that is so funny
