I just spent a hellish couple of hours looking for my engagement ring. I was cleaning my apt and took it off (and I hardly ever do so) and remember thinking “I will leave it here so I’ll know where it is”, I had to take my fiance to the airport since he will be in Brazil for the week for business, so when we were in the car I was like “I forgot my ring” and he asked “You know where it is right?”, I thought I knew! So I came home, kept on cleaning a little bit and then I wanted to put it back on… and couldnt find it. At first I was like “well it has to be IN the house so I just need to look for it, was kind of cool for like 20 mins (my apartment aint that big), then got stressed but tried not to panic and kept on looking, but after like another 40 minutes I got really anguished and couldnt stop crying… At last I did find it, but even after I put it back on I couldnt stop crying…
I just wanted to share and hope that you never go through the same!!

@eclipse: I totally feel for you, I lost mine and it took me 6 MONTHS (and a replacement, oops) to find it! I took it off to clean also. Now I just wear gloves or put it in the box it came in.
Did you find it the same day? Where was it? Mine was at the bottom of a box of ziploc baggies, it must’ve fallen off the counter, into the drawer, into the baggies.
Take some deep breaths, it’s back where it belongs, on your finger!

So glad to hear you found it. My rings are currently off (I forgot to put them back on after some painting) and I am constantly worried they are lost. But, I know they are in their box on a shelf in my kitchen. I highly recommend getting a small box or some other covered storage that is in the place you most frequently take them off. For me it is the kitchen as I only take them off when my hands will be deep in food or paint or other chemicals. I can’t tell you how often I am glad to have this box and glad that it closes tight so even if it gets knocked over, the rings don’t fall out. Much more safe than a ring dish in my opinion. My box is actually a stupid touristy metal box with a latch my mom got me. I have no idea what it is intended for as it is about the size of a half dollar, made of metal with a light house picture on the cover and a felt lineing. It also comforts me to know that if someone were to break into my house while the rings were in there it does not look valuable so I can imagine a burgler would not have inerest.
