- Wedding: August 2009
So yesterday morning, I was sitting in my office and looked down at my hand and realized that my wedding ring was MIA!!! I immediately grabbed my left hand with my right thinking that I was just hallucinating- nope- GONE! My heart felt like it dropped out of my body!
I never take my ring off!! The only time is right before I get in the shower and right after I’m finished getting ready- during the time which it sits in it’s perfect wooden ring box. So around 8:45a after I realized it wasn’t on my hand- I went on a frantic search through the office- nowhere to be found I couldn’t imagine where it could be. Needless to say- I stayed in the office until lunch time, during which I started to get nautious at the thought of losing it, and left after lunch to search my house.
Nearly 4 hours later and no luck, my husband and I returned to my office to search once again. After going through my office, moving every file cabinet, chair, desk, etc (that 3 other people had already done that day in an effort to assist me) we came up with NOTHING! As we were leaving unsuccessful and me suffering from the worst headache/nausea combination ever at that moment, I decided to trace my last steps around the building in one last effort. As I was met by 3 other collegues, my husband and I went through where we had been, where my ring wasn’t, and what to do now… then I looked straight ahead– THERE IT WAS!! I immediately yelloed “ON MY GOD!!” and flung it back on my hand faster than I can remember. They all were like “WHAT!?!?!?” Followed by hugs and laughing from them, lots of tears and smiles from me.
Needless to say it was the worst day ever!! And ended up being on of the most relieving and happiest
We just got married in August, and although my ring is covered if any of the stone fall out to be replaced at no charge from our jeweler, we hadn’t gotten around to getting it insured. Insurance isn’t that expensive and is worth it. You can expect to pay $10 for every $1000 that your ring is worth, and that is coverage for one year. So $200 a year is minimal to what it would cost me to replace my ring– needless to say INSURANCE TODAY!!
I recommend all you ladies insure yours asap too- you never know what will happen no matter how careful and top of mind aware you are of yours. Has anyone else had an experience like mine???
