Noooo! I loved your ring so much! That is horribly unfortunate. I’m so sorry. 🙁

I wouldn’t even have a ring dish in the bathroom or kitchen- too many potential issues. Just the bedroom and living room.

Thank you for justifying my insistence on having two ring holders. We have one in the bedroom and one in the kitchen. These are the places I take off my ring 99% of the time. It used to freak DH out to see my ring lying on various parts of the kitchen counter. Both holders came from bed, bath, and beyond for around $20 each. Gorgeous, and made for awesome wedding gifts. Might be a go to shower gift for other brides I know.

I just don’t understand why people take their ring off so much. The only time mine has been off is when I had surgery.

What a complete bummer but what a story to tell!!

Go put on one of your lovely stand in rings and start thinking about your options. Being a fellow Bee with multiple marital bling, I can appreciate the sentiment lost down the drain while knowing that its value was never in the price tag.

There, there. [pat, pat]

I think it’s not a matter of taking your ring off, it’s a matter of having it sit in a safe spot EVERY TIME you take is off.  I have 2 safe spots: one in a ring dish on the nightstand by my bed, the other inside my jewelry box in my dresser.  No kitchen, bathroom, livingroom, or any place where other people may factor in, no pocket in my clothes either.  While out of my finger, my rings sit in one of my 2 spots, no exceptions.  I’ve never worn my rings while at home and never take them off while out.  

I now do my gel mani at home, but back when I used to do it in the salon, I carried a ring box in my bag to have them sit while my nails were being done.

They’ve never been lost or damaged because I’ve been lucky, but because I make a conscious effort of keeping them safe at all times.

sumshine.dawn:  Oh no 😣. Sorry its happened to you. That’s just sucky luck and quite amazed by the timing of it all to happen. Bit random that he came in to suddenly flush a toilet.

That’s why once I’m at home, first thing I do is put my rings in my ring holder (WITH LID) in my bedroom or leave it on our computer desk… (which is rare unless I’m super busy) 

 

I don’t trust myself to wear my rings at home… even though I bought insurance for the rings… but yeah.. I do not trust myself at all

Robyn0214:  exactly. I take my ring off all the time- to workout, cleaning the house, cooking, putting on lotions- basically anytime it may get damaged or dirty. But, I have one very specific safe place that I always keep it, and consequently haven’t had any issues with misplacing it. You don’t need to wear your ring 24/7 to keep it safe.
