Introduction:After speaking with several salespeople at ten different jewelry stores while shopping for wedding rings, I got some stories about how people commonly lose their wedding and engagement rings. Here are the ways we heard most often:
You just take it off for a minute while washing to avoid getting water trapped beneath it. Unfortunately, you forget to put it back on. You walk out, and somebody snatches it!
You dig your fingers into the dark, rich soil, and off slides your diamond ring into the dirt. It remains there, with the earthworms and such, and you're very lucky if you ever find it again.
Snow shoveling requires lots of movement, taking on and off of mittens and gloves, and so on. These things can snag your ring, and pull it off in one fell swoop. Once your ring is lost in the snow, it's like finding a needle in a haystack, or rather, a snowstack. You may need to buy a replacement wedding ring.
If you take your ring off at night when you sleep, beware! Once you forget it on the nightstand, or off the nightstand where it fell, you'll be hundreds or thousands of miles away.
Often, you don't even know when you lost your ring. It could be lost via any of the ways above, or something completely different, but you don't realize it's gone until it's too late. Retracing steps and thinking backwards in the sequence of events in your day is smart.
Although it may seem like a tragedy if you lose your wedding ring, it's not that bad in the scheme of things. It can be replaced.
