I think SIL was overdoing the host thing and acting stressed because she didn’t like having people in her house for that long.  Many people don’t like having houseguests; she’s probably just a weirdo about it, especially considering she became so sweet and helpful once you guys left.

Any update?

sunnierdaysahead2 :  WOW, this is crazy! Just throwing this out there- are there any baseboards that have a little hole in it? Or a kick plate in front of a cabinet that has a gap in it? Or a large crack in any nearby furniture? I ask this because my sister lost her engagement ring in their house when she was first engaged. She said she always put it in a ring holder on the sink and one day accidentally knocked the ring holder to the ground. she heard her ring hit the tile and never heard it bounce again.  She thought maybe it fell onto the area rug. She and her (then fiancé, now husband) scoured the area and looked everywhere. A couple days later she still hadn’t found it. Her husband got down on his knees one more time and noticed that there was about a half inch gap above the kickplate, under the cabinet of the bathroom sink. They thought “no way” but when he removed the kickplate sure enough the ring had somehow positioned itself to fit through that tiny gap and landed behind the kick plate. So, I would check any small area that a ring could fit into no matter how impossible it seems. Keep us posted!!

sunnierdaysahead2 :  I definitely would not, in any way, bring up to the brother your suspicions about the wife. Dont let your Fiance do it either. That will just cause a shit show of drama that insurance cant protect you against. Sorry this happened!

MrsBuesleBee :  +1 I was just about to post the same thing.

sunnierdaysahead2: Despite anyone else’s suspicions, its best for your Fiance not to say anything to his brother because it can cause irreparable damage. Some things just can’t be undone and if she didn’t do it (I honestly have my doubts also), then there’s no going back. There are some people that can show their true colors early on and I think she’s been showing hers, but that just means to keep your eyes open while she’s around.

sunnierdaysahead2 :  I know what you mean about doubting yourself. I’m so sorry this is happening. Maybe you can get a list of pawn shops near your SIL and call them to see if “anyone” has pawned it? Or give a description of your ring to said pawn shops and leave your number if it comes in. Hate to suspect her but no one would need to know you called some shops.

sunnierdaysahead2 :  Yeah I understand, it really sucks that you’re having to go through this and she hasn’t been all that helpful in finding it. If it were her ring I’m sure she would expect everyone to drop everything until it’s found, but people don’t always understand until they go through something similar. If it was the puppy, I’m pretty sure it’ll show up eventually. You know how it can be, you usually find what you’re missing once you stop looking for it!

2ndchance :  My mother had the EXACT same thing happen with her ring bouncing up over the baseboard underneath a cabinet in the kitchen. She even said the same thing about not hearing it land after bouncing once. It was actually missing for an entire year before my dad removed the baseboard and found it down there.

sunnierdaysahead2 :  I had a ring at my sister’s house that I’d left on the window sill. The cat knocked it off and batted it completely out of the room. They should check ALL of the rooms.

Why did you have to leave? I wouldn’t of left without finding it. I would rescheduled flight or bought new air tickets people just don’t care if it’s not their ring. 🙁 I am so worried for you.

What a nightmare! I’m sorry you have to worry about both a missing ring and the possibility of malice. If someone in the family really did steal it, I would just pity that person for feeling like they had to stoop so low and hope that justice prevails eventually.

Hopefully, you will get your insurance money soon. At least you get to go ring shopping again? Do you think you will have a different budget this time around?
