sunnierdaysahead2 :  well this kind of mystery would drive me up the wall too, if my ring went missing in these circumstances, it’s gotta be somewhere in the house or your luggage. It can’t just disappear into thin air.

I’m glad you’re waiting for your Brother-In-Law but PLEASE don’t wait too long to report the ring lost. You can always retract the claim, but if you wait too long to report it it may make the insurance company question the validity of the claim. Just FYI!

sunnierdaysahead2 :  I know you say your ring is insured will you get the same specs as your original ring? my friend had lost her ring as well and she did not get her new ring as the old one with the same color , clarity they gave her something different and there was nothing she can do about it… so hopefully you’ll be okay and be happy with whatever you get sorry this happened to you.. it still blows my mind the ring went missing in a bedroom

sunnierdaysahead2 :  the SIL’s behaviour was terrible the whole time – waking you guys up, letting the dog in the room, continuing to open the door to air the room out after you requested it stay closed due to allergies.

yes, these dogs can eat jewelry, small toys, watches… Especially if it’s under a year old. I’ve seen them eat all sorts of things. But… the behaviour of the SIL is strange. I’d guess it was her. I’ll bet you your ring shows up at a pawn shop sometime in the near future near her house. When you fill out the police report for your insurance – be sure to mention this – I bet you get your original ring back in a few weeks this way

sunnierdaysahead2 :  follow up to my previous post, lest people think I’m crazy for suspecting the SIL. Years ago a cousin of mine visited us. This was one of my mom’s favourite niece’s, as my mom had lived with the family when the niece was young. Of course we never monitored what she did in the house – we trusted her. She was family. A few weeks after she left we discovered stuff missing. Some gold coins, some heirloom crystal – things you don’t look at on a daily basis, so it took time before we realized it was missing. It turned out my cousin had a bad heroin habit that no one was aware of. She’d stolen the stuff and pawned it the first opportunity she got for money for her habit. This was a University educated young lady who was bright, and beautiful (she had modelled). No one would have suspected she was into drugs. 

So, whether your SIL has a drug problem, money problems, an issue with kleptomania, or just wanted to take the ring because she liked it – I think it’s a good idea to consider her. I HOPE IM WRONG!! Next time get a hotel room!

SIL totally ate the ring. 

In all seriousness – so sorry to hear about this! That must be incredibly stressful.  It sounds like Brother-In-Law is being very diligent in lookin for it – hopefully it turns up soon.

Omg! I’m so sorry. What a nightmare. My dogs have never eaten a piece of jewelry, but I’ve dropped a ring and had it bounce pretty far…like halfway across the room. I hope they checked between the base boards and the flooring, or any fabrics that could’ve snagged a prong and dragged it along. Just a thought, but I wonder if a metal dectector would be useful indoors? If so, it might be worth borrowing or renting one. Wishing you the best of luck finding it!

TheGridMonster :  As bizarre and nonsense that it seems, you’d be surprised what “family” will do. I have heard of and experienced much worse in my own family from those who you would never expect. People do some crazy stuff these days. I wouldn’t knock the SIL out of the equation. 

One of my cousins was a very well known pharmacist within the community and loved/respected by everyone.She would give you the shirt on her back. Sadly she died a few years ago in a terrible car accident. So many attended her funeral including several NFL players… the church even ran out of room and many had to stand outside. Anyways we recently had to put my 95 year old grandmother in a nursing home and were wondering why she had no money to cover the costs. Turns out my oh so sweet pharmacist cousin stole most of her money and also took out a bunch of credit cards in my grandmother’s name without her knowledge. Accumulated about $20,000 worth of credit card debt that my aunt had to pay off so my grandma wouldn’t go to jail. She was using these credit cards on men,  flights,  hair and nail appointmentments,  expensive dinners,  etc.  We were beyond shocked to find this all out. Still makes me want to vomit when I think about it.

jewels84 :  of course, any given person you meet in life is capable of anything. That being said, I stand by what I said. It seems far more probable to me that the ring fell on the floor and was kicked somewhere or fell into the bed frame, etc. than accusing the SIL of grand theft.

But hey, everyone is entitled to believe whatever storyline they want.

TheGridMonster :  Oh I’m not saying there is no other explanation, but you just never know. Hoping it wasn’t the SIL and it truly is just somewhere around the house.
