I know that horrible feeling. My flat was broken into once and they stole the usual. Cameras, laptops etc. Obviously I went straight to my jewellery box and noticed a necklace that my mum had given me for 18th birthday was missing. It’s not worth much but it’s obviously very sentimental to me. I cried my eyes out for a good two hours. I eventually called her to tell her the bad news. She cried as well but mainly because I was so upset. She said that she would buy me a new one but that’s not the same. About a week later I was going through my purse (throwing out receipts and random crap I seem to collect) and low and behold, the necklace was there! I have no idea how it got there but didn’t care question it! I now keep tabs on all my sentimental jewellery and keep them in a seperate box locked away in the flat in a secret location. NEVER AGAIN!!

Bad things happen in 3’s. Ignore the nasty comments Megsky – it’s the internet and the anonymity gives some
people permission to be rude.
As far as not feeling the ring slip off goes – the only times I have lost rings (and the “s” = 2 rings) was when they slipped off. The first time I was 16, driving my parents car with my hand hanging out the open window. 🙁
The second time happened 4 years ago when I was swimming in Jamaica. It was a ruby ring and it broke my heart.
I don’t want a 3rd time to happen. Your bad luck has already stopped :). I hope you get a gorgeous 4th ring and come back here to show us. ((hugs))

- Wedding: October 2019 - City, State
If I lost 3 rings, I wouldn’t bother getting another expensive ring. Even if my fiance was willing to get me one. I just wouldn’t want to risk wasting anymore money. OP I think it might be wise to get a stand in and start training yourself to take better care of the ring. Make sure its the prope size and start practicing better habits with it. Make yourself more aware of it being on your hand as well. Once you have successfully kept that ring for a year than look into getting an upgraded ring.

This was the last time I recall seeing it when I went to bed one to two hours after was when I noticed I wasnt wearing it. By moring if wasnt where I thought it would be or in any of the other places I usually put it.

Oh I so hope so! Here I was thinking third time lucky! I hope a third never happens to you sweetie. I lost my first when I was around sixi was standing on a fence and it slipped right off my finger and into the bush. A tiny little area and 6 people searching and it was never found. I lost a bracelet and my parents wedding and spent most the night crying in the toilets. It was my favorite and I thought mum would be so mad as it was her friends who had the same one as me as I lost my original one but mum found me and made me feel better (it was around a $20 bracelet but I love it). I lost the origonal one plus my whole jewellry box I would of been about eleven. And for an eleven year old I had quite abit of ‘grown up’ bling when my little brother who was around six sold all my jewllrey to the kids in the street for a $1.60 he thought he was rich yet mum was furious and of course we didnt get it all back and the stuff we did was all broken 🙁
Im praying my bad luck is up the wedding band to match my e/ring is half price at the moment so I’m going through EVERYTHING so I can buy and have my set
