- Wedding: July 2010
So Bees I have been an emotional wreck pretty much the past 2 days because I have lost my wedding rings Yes Both Bands and Engagement ring Because they were all soldered together.
I know 100% I had it on when I was driving home from work Tuesday night b/c it was bothering me bc my fingers were swelling and it was pinching so I pulled it off and put it on my middle finger down to the knuckle It fit tight I have done this many many times before even wore it like that almost all day at work one day while doing hair and it never once fell off or wouldnt even slide.
Wednesday morning I am driving to work and think man I forgot to put my ring on. Then I think I DON’T REMEMBER SEEING IT! (I always take it off at night when I wash my face and put it in this little dish on my bathroom windowsill) Then I think I DON’T REMEMBER TAKING IT OFF! So I immediately call my husband to tell him to please look for it and the search begins.
He said he looked the house over everywhere he could think of. I sat down and wrote out a paper retracing my steps of every single thing I did. 3 of us have torn the house apart for 2 days looking for my rings NOTHING!
The first thing I did was went to pick my daughter up at my mother in laws I walked from my car to the front door (only on their driveway & their little porch). Then I went home walked from my driveway to my house… got my dog and took her out. I only stood in the same area to wait for her to go potty which was off to the side of my driveway. Then i went back in. From that point I didn’t shower or take a bath or do laundry or wash dishes (and it wouldnt fit down my bathroom sink drain bc of the stopper…so I know it couldn’t be down the drain anywhere)But I have searched everywhere I could think of I went into 4 rooms of our house that night so you wouldn’t think it would be so hard.
I looked all the obvious places couch, bed , drawers or baskets,hamper, Trash, recycle, and even the more strange places going over every single thing I did like I looked in the potato chip bag, the ice bucket, the fridge, the dog food bag, etc….NOTHING
I questions all the family about seeing it and no one has… even offered a reward to ANYONE who finds it! SO We had 6 different people come down and search our yard & driveway as well as my In Laws…my husband even got his metal detector and walked the entire area(even ran it over the dog just to make sure! . I have had 4 different people check my car. I even called around to all the businesses I work near (we are in the same shopping center) worried that it might have been in my car and i knocked it out when i went to work Wednesday morning to see if anyone turned it in (Target had an entire drawer full of lost rings! I couldn’t believe it) NOTHING!
I have went over and over it again and again and while I know for certain I had it on in my car… that’s it I don’t remember otherwise .. I cant remember a time for sure that I had it on after that But I know I didn’t have it on when I washed my face or I would have done my normal routine and put it where i do every single night. I just don’t understand where it can be! IT HAS TO BE HERE SOMEWHERE!
Hubby was pretty upset about it (with reason) but he is more sorry I am so upset about it, bc to him it was just money to me it was emotional.
We do have it insured through our homeowners insurance but.. even if we could get one exactly like it… it still will not be MY WEDDING RINGS. I don’t know in my mind its irreplaceable. I am so mad at myself for being so irresponsible. You would think I would have not just stuck it just anywhere…. And you would think I would notice it fall off.. I mean it is pretty good sized and has some weight to it.
He is going to call tomorrow to see about what we need to do or if there is a waiting time or a time limit to report it. But we were looking online and reading alot of companies wont cover it if it was a “mysterious disappearance” well WTF does that mean? I mean if it wasn’t a mystery wouldn’t I know were it was? I mean if I knew exactly where I lost it.. I would know exactly where to look for it!
So has anyone else lost their ring? Did You find it? Did You claim it under your insurance? How did that work? Did insurance cover it?
