Wedding Wednesday: I Lost My Ring!

Lovely readers, yesterday was THE WORST day ever.  I’ve heard plenty of stories over the years about women who lose their wedding rings and now I know first hand just how terrible it is…

(a very awkward picture of my now-naked left hand)

Remember how I’m trying to be better about sunscreen?  Yesterday, I slipped off my ring to apply my SPF.  Rather than placing it by our toothbrushes in our bathroom (like I usually do), I placed it in my bra.  I rushed out the door and drove across the city to a friend’s house to take care of her dog while she was away for the day.  I was in her backyard, her bathroom… all over her house, really.  THEN, I took her dog to a local dog park and played around for an hour or so.

I noticed that my ring was gone toward the end of my time at the dog park, but I assumed it was next to our toothbrushes in the bathroom because that’s where I ALWAYS keep it when my ring is off.  It wasn’t until I got home that I remembered putting the ring in my bra, and by then it was gone.

To be honest, I’m devastated.  We’ve looked everywhere.  I’m working with a ring finder to get him to bring a metal detector to the dog park, but there’s a chance that the ring isn’t even there.  There’s a part of me that’s still holding out hope that it will be found, but the other part of me feels like it’s extremely unrealistic.

Ugh… I’m sorry for the not-so-happy post this morning, but I try to keep the blog honest and this is all I can think about today.

Have you ever lost an important piece of jewelry?  Were you able to find it?  Any tips or tricks?  Please share them in the comments!

    Oh no!! Hope it turns up (even if it seems unlikely). I often find things like that in simple places–not where I thought they might have fallen, but like next to the upstairs sink because I’d forgotten I took them off for a moment.

    SO Sorry Kim, first of all retrace all you steps, it may have rolled out of your bra and be in your home, car etc. fallen out long before the dog park. Also Pray to St Anthony, patron saint of lost articles! He does work. “Tony, Tony, look around, something is lost and cannot be found” I have a couple of stories about this where the missing article just showed up. Don’t despair, keep positive, and keep looking, maybe dear Anna will help in the search too. I will try sending you positive finding thoughts too!

    I lost my great-grandmother’s antique pendant watch and looked for it EVERYWHERE before I found where I had hidden it so it would be safe. It’s in my safe deposit box now.

    Oh NO!! My mom lost her class ring, and it was turned into the police who used old year books to investigate who it belonged to and her contact information. They called her a year after she had lost it! Pretty impressive. Hope your ring finds its way back to you.

    I’m so sorry to hear Kim! Don’t give up. I don’t know if you are religious, but say a special prayer. I can’t tell you how many times I have prayed for an important document and personal irreplaceable items…and ended up finding them!
